Pours a hazy straw color with a finger of head that enjoyed good retention. The nose has some hoppy notes but not a potent as I would expect in a DIPA. The malt is a but muted and, as a result, the hoppiness really stands out. There is also a touch of alcohol in the finish that got more intrusive as this offering warmed.

This is a good beer but really reminds me of a poor man’s Dirt Wolf.

12oz can into a pint glass.

Pours a slightly hazy light gold; way lighter than I was expecting. Half finger white head that sort of quickly fades away. Just a scant hint of lacing left on the sides of the glass. The lightness of the beer is quite surprising.

Aroma has hints of wood letting you know this is oak aged along with some overripe fruit such as pineapple and kiwi. A touch of caramel thrown in there as well. It is definitely English IPA-smelling.

Flavor of mild oak throughout combined with pineapple, orange, and just the faintest touch of pine. There is considerable maltiness that is predominantly caramel but the sweetness remains restrained. The flavor profile is more English than American with the oak just adding an additional layer of complexity making this one interesting. Alcohol is extremely well-hidden and it isn't too sweet.

Overall, a good beer but not Earth-shattering by any means. I like the character imparted by the oak but really it is just a bit boring overall.
