Nose of pale malt sweetness, bourbon, lemon, oranges. Golden orange, nice head and lace. Citrusy fruity up front, oranges, a little barrel wood and bourbon as well as amonia. INteresing not a ton of bourbon but a little medicinal in the finish comes through.

Growler from Rattle n Hum shared at jcwattsruggers. Poured a slightly hazy amber body under a smaller super light beige head. Aroma of light bourbon, citrus rind, wet grains and honey. Medium bodied with soft to average carbonation and a quick burst of alcohol heat that fades away. Flavor of honey, vanilla, hint of bourbon, tangerine and grapefruit meat. Very nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours a golden body with a thin white head. Aromatically all booze up front, bourbon vanilla and oak with some lost hop tones somewhere in the mix of things. Sweet boozy, vanilla witha light citrus notes. Just way to sweet, this is one style that doesnít work in a bourbon barrel. Now tequila thats another story.

Wow, this was pretty expensive but totally worth it. A perfect balance of really rich caramel and typical ipa ibu. Aroma is also verry sweet with floral and citrus hops. It could be more bitter, but Iím not complaining.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2011 On tap at Brouwerís Cafe, pours orange with a beige head. Aroma of pear, apple, citrus hops, bourbon and oak. The flavours are more muted though - of pears, apples, citrus and mild hops. The barrels detract from the exquisite flavours of the original Mojo Risin. Doesnít live up to all it could I think.
