first review, so bare with me.

warm orange/copper color, clear - reminds me of my shades. the color that jumps into mind when i regularly think, "beer"

lots of citrus when it hits my nose. definitely grapefruit, a little orange. dig it.

taste is great. bitter as expected, but not too far out. not punching me in the mouth, but still something else. after it goes down, the taste hangs out for a little bit, and i'm welcoming it.

feels pretty good. not a thick beer, but not a light beer either. i feel like there could be a little more carbonation, but it goes down easy.

overall, i feel like i could drink a lot of these. i say that a lot, but all things considered, an awesome beer from a great brewery.

Pours an incredibly clear and somewhat light golden color, a bit of amber as well, but notably clear, could read a paper through it. Moderate head and good lacing, very tiny bubbles dancing near the surface.

Smell is more malt than hops a bit subdued frankly. Taste is actually quite nice, a velvety smooth character and a bit of vanilla that comes through, certainly picking up something different, so my naive palate will attribute to the oak barrel, being a novice on barrel aged beers.

I like it, not sure what to expect from IPA Oak aged, but gives it a mellow character, especially in the mouthfeel and aftertaste.

12 oz into a snifter...light colored body with a decent straw head. Not out of this world so far. Smell has a good malt back of heady hops bitters and some woodiness. Taste is even better, it brings the hops qualities to the front and the wood is nice. Mouthfeel is fine. I recommend trying this one, it's solid. Price is not too bad either.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Light orange color. Two finger off white head with great retention and lacing.

S: Well blended. Citrus and caramel. Grapefruit, mango, tangerine, and orange zest.

T: Sweet upfront and throughout. Big mango. Other light citrus, grapefruit and some apricot. Very sweet IPA, but very good.

M: Medium light body. High carbonation. Slick. Pretty refreshing.

O: Pretty good IPA considering how sweet it is. A nice Illinois local.
