  • Pour clear with a huge white, meringue foam. Retention is crazy good while lacing begins immediately.

    Aroma is oak forward: it busts out first and foremost. Lots of toasted and caramel malts give it a sweet, malty smell. Citrus hops give it a nice fruity scent.

    Taste starts off with oak, has oak in the end, has oak in the finish. A good dose of citrus hops hits late while malts are throughout. Hits of vanilla are evident too. Roasted/chocolate malt eventually makes it way to the surface also.

    Medium body with a ridiculous amount of over carbonation. Dries the palate.

    The large carbonation is way too much for my style: it seems to take away from the beer. The white oak is one my favorite flavors in a beer. When I first poured I thought it might be contaminated. Enjoy!
