Darker than ipa appearance, maybe the wood bled. Aroma was definitely woody, had some pine aromas too aside from whatever kind of wood it was.

Lots of crystal malt, heavy, still highly hopped. Its a big beer, the alcohol was not faint. Really just a big dipa, heavy malt, heavy bitterness and some wood chips. Not all that fancy, good, but who wanted to drop that kind of coin on a bomber dipa.

Reviewed from tasting notes taken 1-7-12:
L: Pours reddish amber with a slight chill haze that clears up as it warms. 1” cream colored foam collar grips the side of the glass.
S: Spicy, floral hops, light citrus, light malts.
T: Starts with rich malt and then rich citrus rind bitter flavors emerge seasoned with vanilla.
F: Medium full body, medium carbonation.
O: A big, boisterous DIPA.
