3.43/5  rDev -11.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle with a best by date of sometime in august 2010 drank out of a standard pint glass.

A- this one pours out a bright orange colored body with a finger and a half of foamy white head. the head fades quickly leaving behind small spots of lacing.

S- sweet honey and caramel malts and herbal hops are the main attractions here. the oak which they brag about on the bottle is hard to find, if its in the nose at all. a very mild smelling IPA.

T- the start is a decent amount of sweetness. honey stands out, as do caramel malts. after that comes a bit of an herbal taste which i believe is the only hint that this has seen any sort of wood. a nice hoppy finish rounds this one out. well balanced.

M- medium to light bodied with ample carbonation. the alcohol is well hidden.

D- i was expecting more from this one, and my hometown brewery. its not a bad brew, but with so many truly great IPA choices out there for about the same price i dont think ill find myself picking this one up often at all.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Bright gold fading into orange, with sparkling white suds on top. Spotty bits of lace here and there.

Grassy, soapy, floral hop aroma. Mildly herbal, not too pungent though. Not picking up on the oak in the aroma at all.

Honeyish pale malt, some drying bitterness, and leafy hop character. Floral traces hinting at spice. Where's the oak? Not getting any at all. Just a dry, bitter IPA. Overall not bad, worth sessioning, but don't expect much wood.

3.77/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a clear golden color with a small white head.

Scent of light oak, sweet, juicy hops, citrus, grass, and a hint of caramel. The oak character is nice and balanced here.

Taste of cereal, malts, light sweet sugars, honey, subtle hops, and sweet oak. The bitterness is nice, but the beer falls just shy of being great. It's a bit like eating Honey Combs with an IPA poured over them.

Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with a good, smooth carbonation.

If this is a sign of things to come, I cannot wait to drink more of the Two Brothers oak aged beers.

Saw this at the store today... part of the new Two Brother's J Series. Aged in French Oak Foudres.

A: Pours a brilliant bright copper, crystal clear, dense white head with lots of lacing, good head retention

S: the nose starts with some aromatic hops..not huge on the hop aroma, but definitely there... not quite what I was expecting for a IPA with 70 IBUs. The hops on the front meld into a bready malt profile with a presence of oak. Lots of different notes come up in the aroma, but the malt and oak dominates the end.

T: the hops on the front are bitter and subdued, slightly piney, which then gives way to this strong malty backbone that integrates with the oak pretty nicely, the finish is nice and long with lingering notes of oak

mf: crisp and smooth body with low carbonation

D: this is an interesting brew, something about it isn't quite latching on for me. The oak and malt backbone is nice, but something about the hop profile isn't adding up for me. There is some bitterness, but not that nice fresh aromatic hop profile that you would expect a freshly bottled 70 IBU IPA to have.
