Got one of the last ones! My local shop only got one case. Pours golden orange with a soapy head, spotty lacing. Aroma is lots of coconut and vanilla, sweet caramel and boozey bourbon,hop aroma is drowned out, but its still there, its just hard to find, slightly piney. Taste is much like the aroma,but with more hop presence, starts with notes of sweet caramel and vanilla, oak, then a wave of pine and grapefruit takes over and evens it out, the only thing Iím not liking is that in the finish something comes off as medicinal. Not bad, worth a try if you see it.

2013 bomber to a snifter. Pours a clear apricot yellow. Aroma is tropical fruit and vanilla with an apparent sweetness and some biscuit. Taste is sweet up front with a strong alcohol taste in the middle with some hops bitterness and it ends with the bourbon barrel taste. Mouthfeel is creamy underneath the alcohol warmth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy apricot color with a finger of head and decent lacing. Aroma of vanilla and tropical fruit with biscuit malt. Taste of honey and citrus with the vanilla and quite a bit of alcohol apparent. Bitterness initially but that fades in aftertaste. Some oakiness and bourbon in finish. Mouthfeel is creamy and medium bodied with medium/high carbonation. Interesting beer but I'm not sure all the flavors meld completely. ---Jeremy H

Light orange with a bit of brown not much head. Smells of fruit, orange, banana, vanilla. A biting sweet rush at first like a cough syrup with a citrus bitter, honey, vanilla, hops, booze, bourbon towards the end with biscuit cracker. A unique combo of tastes. Very well done, a sipper. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. The pour is a very light hazy orange with little head. The aroma is that of an orange peel, very little bourbon smell to me. The taste is an interesting blend. Not much bourbon upfront, but finishes with hot bourbonness. Mostly bitter hops upfront. The very tail end I get some fruit flavors. Good, but I prefer my stouts barrel aged and not my iipaís.

Shared bomber, snifter glass. Started off with it a bit too chilly, but it still presented a nice aroma: bourbon and malt but not burning or slapping me upside the head. The taste: on one hand the bourbon tells me that it will kick my ass and slowed down my sipping; on the other hand the nice bourbon and malts combined for a smoothness and great taste that lured me in. The hops were there, but the bourbon knocked them down on the palate; also had oak and vanilla. I really, really, really enjoyed this.

750 bottle. Clear pour. Big bourbon taste. Coconut. Vanilla. Caramel. Lots of flavors. Real transformation here. Boozy.

JStax (3548) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a translucent copper with q white head of foam with awesome retention. Aroma has big vanilla and citrus notes. As the beer warms it turns into all Bourbon. Taste is very smooth and pleasant, but I just donít know if barrel aging a double IPA is the best of ideas.

Sorry to say that this was the worst mashing of flavors I have ever tasted no hop flavor detected, heavy bourban taste flavors that for me simply do not work at all. Yuk !

750 ml bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with a half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The aroma is nice, it smells like bourbon, vanilla, citrusy and pine hops, coconut, and some apricot. Taste is a lot like the aroma, with the bourbon, vanilla, and oak flavors being the strongest. Combined with the bitter pine/citrusy hop flavors, it makes for a unique tasting brew. Thereís also a bit of coconut and mango noticeable. Good mix between the sweet and bitter flavors, although I think itís more sweet tasting. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, itís a bit slick and syrupy with low/moderate carbonation. Itís also smooth and easy to drink. I think its a good overall brew, Iím glad I got to try this one. Worth a try if you come across it.
