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

Well, I finally opened it. Pours an IPA-golden in the glass. Aromas of bourbon, vanilla, and a little pine hop. Long palate is slick and smooth. Better than bourbon, maybe. Drinkable. Butterscotch, vanilla ice cream, straw, and bourbon.

On tap at Macgregor’s. Pour is hazed golden amber with white head. Nose is light bourbon, sticky caramel, pine resign, touch of pine sol. Taste is a little bourbon(much less than KBS), still sticky resigny hop, notes of citrus and lots of pine.

michaelinwa (656) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle, trade with umich03jm. Two years old. Pours with a big head and aroma of sweet malt and not a lot more than that. Flavor is almost all malt, not sweet but without interesting notes. Moderately bitter, very slight barrel notes. Probably did not handle cellaring well; any lose of hop aroma or bitterness was a negative for this one.

Sample at HMOG. I am not usually one for an aged IPA but this one is now bordering on barley wine status. Hops are totally faded from the aroma but you are still left with a decently bodied caramel sweet drink. Bourbon is slight but there more in an alcoholic way than a sweet way. Either way, glad a got a chance to try it.

The added complexity from the bourbon is phenomenal. Great vanilla notes along with the smooth bourbon finish
