On-tap at 3 Cellars, Franklin, WI:

Pours copper with a wispy head. Some trailing lace sticks.

The taste is of caramel with pine/wood.

The taste is of caramel with wood/pine. A peppery spice lingers in the finish.

Pretty smooth.

A nice IPA with a woody/earthy tone. Nice spicy dryness in the finish.

From notes on 2/8/14

Ok IPA. Lite bittery hoppy taste. Decent amount oaky flavors come through. I don’t really get any fruit flavor.

22 oz bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint.
6.5% ABV

A - Woodshed has a flawless appearance; brilliant golden with a towering, well-retained eggshell head that cakes the pint glass in heavy gobs of lace as it plateaus to a lumpy pile.

S - Freshly cut cedar and wood paneling keep the beer's name at the front of the mind while English hops fill in the cracks with grassy earthiness and unique undertones of orange marmalade and yellow birthday cake! The aroma isn't bursting but it's incredibly unique and extremely inviting!

T - Dominant earthiness brings oak spiral and wood chip notes but the balance is maintained well with earthy hops; grassy characteristics as well as the aroma's charming fruitiness, all come together nicely with caramel-laced malt.

M - The perfect level of dry bitterness washes over the tongue, lingering after this creamy, smooth IPA goes down!

O - All things considered, the name of this beer must have come easily to the guys at Vintage. With it's cedar-like nose and oak spiral-infused flavor, Vintage has put a fantastic twist on the nearly over-done IPA style. They take it up a notch, further adding nuances of orange marmalade and yellow cake to the mix, making Woodshed a brilliantly balanced and drinkable beer that's unlike any other IPA out there!
