The Round Barn Oaken IPA is decent...not too bitter. The beer poured a clear orange with thin white head that is not leaving much of a lace. The scent carries malt and hint of hops. The taste is a well balance beer that is a bit more sweet than bitter. The hops that are present have touches of citrus. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a good beer and worth a try.

Appearance: cloudy, deep golden-tangerine body with a half finger bone white head that leaves some lacing on the glass with each sip but does not stick.

Aroma: light overall, some oak, citrus-floral in the mix

Flavors: the mild-moderate oak flavor seems to mix well with some muted hops, mild citrus at best, I based my 4 rating on this beer and not on an IPA style. Based on an IPA style I would go lower.

Mouthfeel: moderate carbonation, dry, oak spice that is reminding me of my oak sea salt that I use in cooking, piney on the finish and aftertaste along with the oak, nothing overpowering

To the Point: IPA fans or Hop Heads might be disappointed or a little disappointed but, I like the touch of oak. For someone who likes cigars and some cigars have oaky notes … well this would be worth buying and enjoying with a fine cigar. Look forward to a few reviews on my cigar blog with this beer.

Worthy to try … ahrrr … interesting to try? Yes. For the cigar smoker it is a must pairing. I paired it with a Liga Privada #9 and it was a very pleasing pairing.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Brand new brewery to my area, drinking with full memory of the Great Divide Oak-Aged IPA from Firkin a couple years ago. Right on. This stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises coconut shavings, light mushroom, and a touch of biscuit. The hell...? The taste brings in more of the same, with less of an earthy character (so long, shiitake) and more of a plain oak one. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, I have no idea what happened here, but it sure as hell doesn't seem like any oaked IPA I've ever come across before, much less many normal IPAs, for that matter.
