A- Clear dark amber color. Poured a soapy 1 finger head, creamy on top. Awesome lacing and trailing.
S- Uh oh, this one's trouble. I get tangerine, orange, floral notes, slight peach, spice, bubble gum, and maybe a touch of pineapple. As it warms, the oak and nice vanilla notes start to emerge.
T- And there it is... A new favorite has been found. Sweet hop flavors mentioned above mixed with the malty, oakey goodness of a barrel. Big caramel and notes of pine, grapefruit, bourbon, and resin as well. On the lighter side, but extraordinarily balanced. No doubt one of the best beers I've ever tasted.
M- Thick side of medium. Oily, and super creamy on the tongue.
O- I can't say enough about this masterpiece. All the elements combined to make one of the most unique and wonderfully flavored beers this world has ever known. This will never leave my fridge.

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.
