I've had this in my fridge for awhile and finally decided to crack it tonight. This offering pours a handsome but unremarkable hazy orange with a thick foamy white head that lasts throughout the pour and leaves a very thick frothy lacing. The nose is quite sweet and malty with just a hint of hops and some vanilla oak notes. The mouthfeel is very smooth and pleasant with a great coating of the palate. It is definitely on the thicker side of medium bodied but given the taste one relishes in the lingering flavors. The flavor is outstanding. Deep and rich with malty sweetness yet fresh with a hop bite. All this is accented by the rich buttery oak and vanilla flavors from the aging process. This is a great beer and worth every accolade it has received. If you are looking for a hoppy dipa, then search elsewhere; but if you want a boatload of balance and richness, then look no further.

12 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, bottled on 5/14/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy orange amber color with a 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, toffee, bread, oak, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of juicy citrus/floral hops, oak, and dark/bready malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, floral, grass, light pine, oak, light vanilla, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, toffee, bread, floral, grass, light pine, oak, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice balance, robustness, and complexity of juicy citrus/floral hops, oak, and dark/bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a smooth, creamy, and lightly slick/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent oak aged DIPA. All around great complexity and balance of citrus/floral hops, oak, and dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
