3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thanks Richard! Hazy dark orange red pour with slightly eggshell white head, aroma brought notes of orange, oak, wood, white fruit, hints of earth, spice, some caramel. Taste was a mix of orange, grapefruit, some pine into some wood, oak, vanilla into a bit of booze, finishing fairly bitter.

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.

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.
