Pale copper completely filtered sad looking IPA actually, fine speckled bright white head speckled even lacing. Aroma hints of oak barrel aging, a bit of booze, charred oak, and fruit character going on. Flavors are bland watery bitterness with the oak barrel notes giving me hints of dirty socks aged on hop water and oak chips, it's just a sad experience overall. On the plus side I was excited to see this beer in a brown bottle, but the flavor is terrible I literally can't finish it there are no redeeming qualities to give the beer credit for a watery cluster of muddled hops and oak chips and faint booziness. Mouthfeel is thin higher than normal carbonation, the hops here may ruin someone who could potentially become a hophead. Overall, I'm pretty much done getting burnt by Innis & Gunn, pretty much mediocre to terrible across the board.

Quote from the back of the bottle "This IPA's intense hop character............add hops 3 times during brewing...", Not even close, this was a sweet, woody mess, no hops, flat citrus and should be ashamed to call itself an IPA, no matter where it is made..

Not one of my favorites. With so many choices, there are much better brews.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 14A. English IPA). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L4148 19:50. AROMA: medium-low hop aromas of floral and citrusy character. mild sweet malt background and some wood barrel. APPEARANCE: pale golden color and translucent. Thin white head with poor retention. TASTE: mild floral hop flavours with a very faint malty background. background shows a mild oak barrel flavour. medium-high bitterness that lingers into a almost dry aftertaste. PALATE: medium-light body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: a supposed barrel aged IPA that needs more assertive "aged" notes.
