Draft. Aroma of applejack. Cloudy bronze cider color. Flavors of apple cider, followed by a quick burst if tart citrus, the sweetness and bitterness of which is moderated by the oaky whisky flavors. No hint of booziness, just a smooth progression of flavors. World-class.

Bottle share thanks to Homer321. Woody, oaky, sweet, hop follows, fruity and some earthy/danky. Lightly cloudy orange color. Flavor mimics aroma. Woody, sweet, hoppy and finishes with some booziness.

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.

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.
