Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The hop has met its match! Barrel Thief is an Imperial IPA that was stolen from the brewhouse and stashed away in medium toast, new American oak barrels. The brew features a notorious tropical fruit hop character that tangles with hints of vanilla, dried fruit, and toasted nut from its time served in the barrel.

Enjoyed on tap, served in a tulip.
Pours a dark copper color with a narrow tan head that leaves lots of lacing behind.
The aroma is citrus and oak with a hit of sweet malt beneath.
The taste leads with big hop flavor,-- orange pith and a little hint of pine resin then a little oak follows and some significant sweetness. A fairly chewy beer, there seems to be a substantial malt backbone and some delicious, juicy hops.
Mouthfeel is medium and rather sticky.
Overall, glad I got to try this. A unique and tasty IPA.

Opens with a nice pop, pours an effervescent honey color with 3 fingers of eggshell colored head. Almost clears up, great lacing & nice head retention

S: White grapes & pear, some tropical fruit

T: Pineapple, mango, dryness & hint of honey, pears, & white grape up front. Pears with leafy & woody hops when warm; then some tropical fruit & with a little grapefruit tanginess; plus dryness/woodyness. Finishes with pineapple & mango, plus woody dryness, plus just a little booze

MF: Lively carbonation, medium body, much dryness, nicely balanced

Drinks fairly easy, but you can feel this beer's heft a bit; tasty

Nose nonexistent for such a big beer. Unique taste but underwhelming compared to the description.

Uniformly excellent. Great fluffy white head and a clear golden liquid. Fruity nose; even more so as it warms. Taste is rather mellow and yet flavorful -- tropical fruit with a hoppiness that's surprisingly subtle and un-harsh for a DIPA (but still evident). The alcohol is well-concealed. Mouthfeel is on the heavy side: fitting for the style. The oak ageing is not real obvious but I think it's had a big role in the overall mellowness.
