Imperial pint at the taproom, the I.R.A. From The Wood is a dark cloudy bronze with a small white collar.

Smell is nice and sweet, caramel and papaya/mango ale esters.

Taste is soft and rounded, with way more fruity esters and less hops then regular I.R.A. IIRC, semi-sweet crystal, with very nice vanilla and coconut notes from the wood. I also agree with the brewery's suggestion that it's nutty, perhaps almonds?

Mouthfeel is very soft and smooth, this could damn near pass for cask ale.

Drinkabilty is really high. Super smooth and tasty, clean and light bodied, but still offering some complexity.
