Bottleshare thanks to homer. Pours orange. Smells like booze, hoppy booze. Taste is sweet, booze, malt. Like the beer, but like zues normal much better. This hints towards a barleywine.

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.
