4.39/5 rDev +3.8%
Serving Type: Bottle
Bottled on: 5/15/14 Tasted on: 08/03/14
Appearance- One inch foamy off-white head, a beautiful amber/gold with great transparency. Excellent lacing retention
Smell- Pine, Pineapple, Grapefruit, Alcohol
Taste- Wasn't expecting it, but the wood does come through on the taste. Not really much bitterness. Alcohol warms your throat and nose. Did not taste like a beer sitting at 10% ABV, more along the lives of 8%. Dogfish Head knows how to produce a lovely malt-backbone.
Mouthfeel: Thick, buttery smooth, moderate carbonation.
Overall: A: 92-95; If you see this beer and haven't tried it, it is worth the steep price-tag.

4.19/5 rDev -0.9%
Bottled on date of 05/14/14
Appearance - Pours a slightly-hazed orange copper with a sandstone colored finger's worth of head. Fair retention gives way to a thin layer of surface suds and a thick ring around the edge of the glass. Fair lacing with good stick.
Smell - Woody oak notes are most prominent, along with a mild orange sweetness. Fair leather and distant vanilla.
Taste - Follows the nose, and displays great overall balance. Earthy oak notes upfront. Hints of roastiness, as if the oak were lightly charred. Caramel sweetness which strengthens and peaks by mid-taste. Bittersweet citrus notes which hit on orange and touches of ruby red grapefruit. Faint vanilla. Moderate orange pith aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - Near full in body with moderate carbonation. Creamy texture before a somewhat dry, warming finish.
Overall - Pretty dang delicious. I don't know that I'd drop $13 for a 4-pack (bought a single) but I'd consider it if I ever saw it on tap, or maybe even another single if the mood struck me.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass.
The beer pours a cloudy dark copper color with a dense, long-lasting head that leaves lacing down the glass.
The aroma is rich with oak as well as pineapple, lemongrass, a little toffee from the malt and a hint of vanilla.
The beer tastes great. Loads of flavor: Piney resin, pineapple, lemon, oak, vanilla, caramel. It's mouthpuckering goodness that makes you want to go back for more.
The mouthfeel is outstanding -- so smooth, almost creamy and a wee bit sticky.
Overall, simply an outstanding brew that i wish I could get on a regular basis. Great stuff.

Bought in a growler from Lowe's Foods. Touch of sweetness hides the alcohol well. Really unique flavors. Good color and texture. Delicious. I have tried the bottled version since and found excellent as well. One of my favorite DIPAs. Looking forward to my next growler.

Amazing looking beer, one of Dogfish's best. Two threaded blend, aged for a month in oak, worth it and a must try!
A: Reddish coper body, with the longest lasting, thickest head and abundant lacing.
S: Plenty and interesting, deep mahogany, oaky, woody aroma goes with the color.
Tobacco, cedar, and salty like a cigar humidor room filled with flowers and roses on the Titanic.
T: Follows the interesting, old fashioned smell. Strong, intense and wine like. Oily, deck stain.
Lots of steeped, tea like fruit flavors. A bit too sugary and alcoholic for me and many reviewers, definitely a 1 and done, last beer of the night.
But... a fine after dinner, scotch like, Old Ale-like IPA.
MF: Creamy start, ends in bitter, long, flowing scotch like finish where you can feel the alcohol.
Pair with dessert or blue cheese. Savoring this and absolutely you must try it.
