Ughsmash (7005) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 27, 2007
On tap at Hinterland – Milwaukee. Poured a brilliant garnety-red with a light ring and a swirly beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, lovely bourbon and vanilla-accented caramel and grapefruit sweetness.. remarkably soft and calculating, with the barrel seamlessly-integrated with the nice underlying beer. The flavor found sweet, strong (but not oppressive) bourbon sugars, drawn caramel, and grapefruit at the base with vanilla-accented grapefruit bitterness on the edges.. tangy bourbon sugars and some orange zest emerge for the finish.. tasty! Medium-bodied with low carbonation.. a bit of a grainy oak theme.. nicely toasted. Good stuff!

Was a bit thin, i got the last few ounces before the barrel kicked. It is big and bourbony with a surprising bitterness.

On tap at Owen & Engine. Pours a clear amber with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a note of grapefruit and pine with a decent amount of vanilla and sweet grain. Flavor has some oaky vanilla up front with a good amount of grapefruit coming out.

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2008
On draught at the brewery/brewpub in downtown Green Bay, WI. Pours a semi-clear brownish copper/red brew with a quick dissolving off-white head that dissipates to a thin film top and no ring. Aroma of bourbon with caramel, tangerine, grapefruit and a touch of vanilla. Taste is full bodied, very little carbonation if any with very complex flavors of bourbon, grapefruit, a touch of tangerine, iced tea, vanilla and some toffee. Finish has a thick texture with a lingering bourbon and grapefruit aftertaste that is quite sweet. The bourbon comes out stonger in the finish.

dark amber to copper in color. A hint of rudy when held to the light. Moderate off-white head. Scents of an IPA with some pale to toasted malts and pine and mild citric hops. Interesting flavors to me. I wonder if the oak after time takes over the hops as I am getting more oak character than the hops that I perceived in the nose. Caramel and oak flavors preside throughout. Good, but I still think the hops are gradually losing the battle with the oak.

Draft at Old Fashioned. Deep brown-red color. Oily head. Some hops in the aroma, but seem covered up in thick malt. Bourbon really takes over. Very malty. Solid hop backbone, with this is closer to Barleywine than IIPA. Lots of fruity caramel tones. A little underwhelming flavorwise, while overwhelming in body. Begins to finish scotchy and smoky, a little fig. OK, but not that impressive overall.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2011
On tap at Romans and my last beer of 2010. Ruby red with a medium foamy tan head and a ring of lace around the glass. Aroma if bourbon, oak, vanilla, caramel and light floral hops. Taste is very oaky right out the gate with vanilla, citrus, bourbon, alcohol and caramel as well. Pretty smooth with a moderate bitter finish. Not overly boozy and not as hoppy as I anticipated but overall pretty solid.

Very balanced but very nice hop profile. Oak, if any is subtle. It adds to, rather than is the main component. Nice bitter grassy hops. Vanilla. Medium mouthwatering mouthfeel. I do not usually like a BA IPA because it normally does not work. This one did.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Nearing the end of this year’s batch at Green Bay according to Joe K., while sampled at the upstairs tasting lounge bar, displaying a brownish copper color, with a creamy, off white head, and wavey cling to the lacing. The aroma was some malt sweetness, resin, citrus, noticeable bourbony alcohol, and a touch of dark fruit. The flavor contributed medium hop bitterness, moderate carbonation, a medium+ body, decent alcohol warmth, a bit of cask wood flavor, and a slightly dry finish. The DIPA hop bite was a little past prime, as the malt sweetness was starting to mellow the effect. Still nicely potent, with the Barleywine comparison not too far off. Next time, shared a 16 oz. bottle with craft friends, poured to snifters, with a similar appraisal, noticed more grapefruit, and barrel influenced coconut in both aroma & taste.

holdenn (2077) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Sampled at the Milwaukee brewpub in January 2011 labeled as Whiteout Imperial IPA. Clear ruby with a thin wispy head. Vibrant nose full of red fruit and bourbon. A definitive aged note from the oak and. Bourbon. Very much like cotton candy and sherry. More like a barleywine in flavor. Alcohol spice red fruit flavors juicy fruit with that oak and bourbon. Dry alcohol finish. 9/4/8/4/15
