This features a lot of the oak and vanilla with a bourbon numerator and hop denominator. Or is it the other way around. May have to try another sip. Those with steel trap memories will no doubt remember the last time we did this our IPA won Gold at GABF. So yes, this is a multidimensional offering.

Blairgus (4172) - California, USA - OCT 18, 2013
18 oct 2013, bottle. Gold, clear, some bubbles. Nose is big alcohol, bourbon, toasted caramel. Med body and mildly fizzy. Lots of alcohol, sugary gold syrup, some bourbon notes. No real pale ale hops. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Bottle 35 of 540 shared by Pat C. at Sourfest. Pours with a clear copper hued body with a small tan head. Aromas are of bourbon, caramel, raw wood, mineral, toffee. Low esters, slight oxidized hop character. Flavors are of bourbon, fudge, tannins, earthy, a bit of vegital DMS in the finish. Caramel and toffee through out. Raw on the finish. Medium-medium full carbonation. Quite boozy for the claimed abv. Dry and tannic finish.
