  • Poured clear with minimal tan foam that didn't last without much lacing at all either.

    Aroma had hop resin and oak. There was a sweet backbone bu the resinous hops and oak were most pronounced.

    Taste followed the aroma. Sweet up front giving way to resinous hops and and nice oak in the finish. Not that bitter as my wife drank it.

    Thin, a bit, with not a ton of carbonation. The oak dries the mouth completely.

    Was expecting a touch more from an IPA aged in oak. The resinous hops made me think I was drinking an old beer but it was fresh, so maybe it was intentional. Overall I thought the beer was good and would have it again. Enjoy!
