Hussey (60) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Tasting glass @ Foothills. Pour: Brown, whiskey-like pour. Thin caramel head. Aroma: Booze-like nose. Complex and dense with alcohol. Taste: Too much going on here. Enjoyed the experience, however. Seeing Double is one of my fav DIPAs but the bourbon tones push it beyond IPA land. Like a mixed drink: DIPA + Jim Beam. Overall: Imbibed for the experience. I respect the effort, but not my thing. The BA People’s Porter reflects a much better use of this technique.

Tap. Light amber with minimal head. Wow, barrel aging really helps this out. Very woody. Slight alcohol warmth. Hop bitterness is mellowed.

Rrauth (1190) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Draft. Orange with no head. Lacing is present. Not much aroma. Bourbon is a nice pairing with the bitterness. Still finishes very bitter. Yummy ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Delightful bourbon smell. A bit sweet but well balanced with the hops. Bitter bourbon finish, excellent

Steasy66 (867) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Growler shared by Jason. Light amber, little head. Big bourbon nose with a hint of banana. Flavor lacks a bit, hint of hops, light barrel character. Mouthfeel is good.

mwbrady12 (469) - Winston Salem, North Carolina, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Tempting aroma and intriguing appearance leads to a taste that doesn't blend well between bourbon and hops with a satisfying mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TURDFERGUSON (3948) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2011
Draft at Milltown. Sweet, sugary, mild bitterness. Bourbon shows through but is fairly muted by the older hops still kicking around. Its drinkable and not oxidized. But I’m not a huge fan.

Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Thanks to Scott from the Charleston Beer Exchange. pours a bright amber. absolutely incredible nose. lots and lots of bourbon, which is great because pappy is one of my favorites. hints of honey, mahogany, and some subtle piny hop aromas. the flavor is surprising mellow, exceedingly smooth and very good. the sweet bourbon aspect is balanced very well with the bitter hops, which take a back seat. glad to have had this one.
