22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 6/9/2016. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange peel, peach, pear, pineapple, light pepper/pine, vanilla, caramel, toffee, toasted oak, brown sugar, biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, herbal, floral, light grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/earthy hops, fruity yeast, oak, and dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, orange peel, peach, pear, pineapple, light pepper/pine, vanilla, caramel, toffee, toasted oak, brown sugar, biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, herbal, floral, light grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/pine bitterness and oak spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, orange peel, peach, pear, pineapple, vanilla, caramel, toffee, toasted oak, brown sugar, biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, herbal, floral, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops, fruity yeast, oak, and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from bitter/spiciness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky, and lightly sticky/tannic mouthfeel that is awesome. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming for 8.2%. Overall this is an outstanding oak aged English DIPA! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops, fruity yeast, oak, and dark/bready malt flavors; with smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. Very unique for the style, but very complex from the prominent oak influenced flavors. A highly enjoyable offering.

Growler from the nova

Pours a finger of beige tan head. Color is a dark amber brown. Much darker than a regular ipa.

Flavor profile is very unique. A lot of vanilla and toffee flavors. Very sweet. Biscuity and bready. More malty than normal. A lot of oak. Reminds me a bit of cedar. The hop profile is much fainter, but I expected that due to the nature of how this beer was made. It has a somewhat juicy flavor. Floral and grapefruit do show.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, creamy, medium bodied, low bitterness. Ends sticky.

Overall, at first I didn't like this beer, but after a few ounces it grew on me a lot and I started to appreciate it for what it is. It is oak aged so it isn't going to be a massive hop bomb. This beer is very complex and really easy to drink. I dig this one. A lot!

Pours an effervescent caramel. Traces of lacing & head retention

S: Coffee??? Oakyness, toffee

T: Mocha, vanilla & dryness up front. Toasty dryness as this warms, more mocha, a little hazelnut as this warms. Finishes dry, toasty with sweetn vanilla & hazelnut

MF: Medium & slight carbonation

This alright, probably the weakest beer I've had from these guys. Seriously doubt this an EIPA

My kind neighbor and great friend shared this tasty treat. It poured a clear amber with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent had oak and hints of vanilla. The taste carried oak and vanilla bean roast. The Mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it's an interesting beer and definitely worth a try.
