Note: whiskey lovers only! I love whiskey, so I do love this beer. Amber colored and clear. Aroma of sweet whiskey combined with IPA. Very awesome IPA for whiskey lovers. Lingering caramel, pretzel, and vanilla notes.

Gold pour with a small white head. This ones got quite a bit of butter. Lots of oak. Some vanilla. No hops at all on it. Almost tart on the finish. Pretty thin, lightly sweet. Interesting by not my thing.

Dominated by whiskey. Medium sweet, like a barleywine or American strong ale. Too much whiskey character for my taste, but it is a well crafted beer. I did not think of this as an ipa when I was drinking it, the hops are mostly lost.

Bottle. Ruby pour with tan head. Dark malts, some active hop aromas. Some earthy herbal hops with sweet malty tones, this has essentially become a barrel aged barley wine.

Bottle shared by Ryan, thanks! Pours a hazy amber orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a strong whiskey note with a bit of pine and sweet grain coming through. Flavor has sweet grains and strong whiskey with just a hint of pine hoppiness.
