Bottle thanks to Jess. Pours a slightly hazy reddish orange color with a very small white head. Nose is mostly booze and vanilla with some distinct woodiness to it. Moderate citrus hops in the nose. a light caramel note which I attribute to the spirit. Taste is great vanilla and orange marmalade combination. Light crackery malt. This is great stuff. I need more barrel aged IPAs in my life like this one.

2 Draft goblets at Lengthwise the Pub; Nose is mango, light hints of bourbon and vanilla, and a bit of pineapple; very fruity.Hazy copper orange with a medium, lightly lacing beige head. Flavor is lightly bitter and fruity with some light woody vanilla. Excellent rendition of a BA DIPA.
