3.5/5  rDev -9.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a Dogfish Head signature glass (June 1, 2010). "Best By 8/12/2010" is printed on the rear label.

A local brewery with a good reputation. This is an IPA "aged in French oak foudres". I'm going to assume these french oak containers weren't user for wine prior to beer aging. I've been meaning to try this for a while, so here we are.

Eyes: Pours a crystal clear copper with a finger of whitish head.

Nose: A softer nose than expected. Soft spice, citrus, some sweet malt/dry fruit.

Tongue: A relatively sharp, grassy bitterness with some muted malt. I can really taste the hops oils here, but they don't overwhelm which is nice. This is a bit more malty than other IPAs, but the oak aging doesn't seem to reduce the bitterness or have a massive impact on the flavor that I can tell. I would be interesting to know how long this is aged in oak.

Mouth: Medium body with good carbonation.

Libation: Not a bad IPA. I really like the oak-aged concept, but I'm not too sure what it brings to the table here. This is a bitter IPA with a potent aftertaste, but not a smashing hop assault. I get the feeling that this is a still evolving beer for Two Brothers, and I'll be returning to this in the future to see if it does in fact evolve/improve.
