look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A - Pours a surprising light orange to golden color with a nice head.
S - A really nice nose loaded with hops. Citrus, Fruit, pine and oak.
T - Strong citrus hops jump out with orange peel. Juicy and strong fruit flavors. The malt is sweet and sugary. The oak is slightly noticed and has vanilla taste. Bitter.
M - Medium body with a crisp semi creamy feel. Carbonation is at the right level.
O - Canned on 6/7/13. It was fresh and good considering the oak barrel. Nice can graphics.

This beer poured with a thick viscous head that settled into a fine film that leaves very heavy lacing on my glass. It has a hazy brassy color. The smell is pleasant--a little floral, mostly citrus. The taste is very bold, very hoppy. There's a lot of pine and grapefruit present. It's not overly carbonated but it does have a bite to it. Despite it's rather high ABV, there's really no hint of its alcohol--either in the smell or taste. It's a bit creamy and lingers on the tongue. This is definitely an above average IPA. I'm glad there are 3 more of them in the fridge.

Twelve ounce can poured into a New Belgium snifter.
A- Pours a hazy gold with a bright, white, fluffy head that slowly backs off to leave heavy lacing on the glass.
S- light citrus and oak. Subtle, fruity notes mixed with faint oak and bread. Sour, yet inviting.
T- heavy hop bitterness followed by soft, tart malts. The oak is there, but only enough to balance out the heavy hops. Almost palate-wrecking bitterness, but the oak and malts invite me to each next sip.
M- medium to light bodied. Soft carbonation on the tongue follows through the finish. Slightly oily with only a notion of carb burn. Probably perfect in this category for this taste profile.
O- this is a great alternative to DFA Burton Baton. The oak is subtle enough that the hops can remain center stage. The hops are tasty enough to keep the palate interested and open to new flavors with each sip. Very well done indeed. Will purchase again.

3.8/5 rDev -4.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Definitely gets points for originality.
First thing that shocked was the straw yellow that this poured. I was really expecting a more orange orange or almost red color for some reason. The color certainly made sense later on in the tasting.
As everyone says, there is a very prominent tangerine peel aroma. That almost "candy orange"/Bubblicious/Now and Later smell. I also get some musty basement/old oatmeal coming through. Not getting any acrid piney or cedar notes here.
Taste is in line with the appearance. Slightly corny/biscuit/lemon shortbread cookie. A really oily/buttery quality is there but not an unpleasant diacetyl bomb.
Mouthfeel is slippery and highly poundable.
Overall I liked the boozerate and could probably hammer a sixer. Wouldn't hunt this down and buy myself through...
