32 oz. growler. Clear amber body. Thin collar. Smell is all oak. Fresh oak and some coffee notes. Nutty malts with toffee. Very little by way of hops. Taste has a lot of caramel and toffee up front. Oak immediately takes over. Coffee again behind it. A little bit of oaky char and some mild hop bitterness. Lingering oak. Medium heavy. Definitely not what I expected. Bigger than a traditional English IPA, but the flavors are all there.

Pours a slightly hazy, dark Amber. Very thin to no head. Smells of Carmel malt, coffee hint, dates.
Piney hops coming through a carm malt backed taste. A mJor wine taste comes out in the transition with a big, boozy bite. This is totally not my thing. Could this be a bad batch?? Drain pouring a TG????? I never thought I would do this.

Aroma is oak/very smoky, caramel/toffee and an undercurrent of pine/spices. The flavor is oak, caramel/toffee, grapefruit, malts, citrus/fruit, slightly spiy and a smoky/bitter/slightly tart finish.

I figured this would be a dry English style IPA, which I don't like.

I poured this and got an auburn slightly cloudy brew with little head and not much lace.
Nose is very good with orange and caramel.
Taste is quite remarkable with caramel, malts and background is hops. Mouthfeel is a little lacking but overall this is quite a good beer. Very unique.
