look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a clear yellow-gold with two fingers of white head that fades into a thin layer with a little lacing.

S: Sweet, citrusy hop aromas with notes of pineapple, orange, apricots, and nectarines. There are notes of caramel and vanilla toward the finish.

T: Sweet citrusy hops here as well, mostly with flavors of oranges and pineapples. There are notes of grapefruit in there as well. Stronger caramel, vanilla, and oak flavors come through before a light alcohol warmth on the finish.

M: Medium body with lowish carbonation, this beer is a bit sticky sweet feeling.

O: An enjoyable IPA overall, though a bit different than most. More complex and like a barleywine than a huge hop bomb. Still, it's tasty and drinkable.

Oak spirals? What are those? Is that like an oak slinky?

As is usually the case, the wood kind of sucks some life out of the ipa-ness of things here. Gets muddled. The hop character does seem to show better than I recall from the last time I had it. A nice drinker. Don't think I'll go for this again. (That's twice now. Which is damn near a record for me.)

A-dark gold with a fairly thick and foamy white head

S-sweet sugary hops. Slightly herbal but not too much. Good strength

T-sweet and boozey. The hop resins really coat the tongue. The overall taste is only a muted flavor of how it smells. It has quite a bite.the after-taste is matching.

M-medium creamy caronbation with a dry finish.

O-has quite a bitter kick to it. This hit me by surprise. The flavor itself is okay but it's definitely something to check out if you're in to hops.
