Had the 2013 Barrel-Aged version. Pours a beautiful deep Amber with a tan head. Smells amazing, of mango, vanilla and whiskey. Taste is very smooth, on the malty side for an IPA, with lots of bourbon and vanilla upfront, followed by tropical fruit, with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Had on tap at Raccoon Lodge.

On tap at the brewery’s Raccoon Lodge. I had the bourbon barrel aged version. Amber golden pour. Big malty citrus and caramel aroma with plenty of bourbon. Taste is the same, sweet, some bitter hoppiness. Like an amber barleywine with the bourbon barrel flavors. Nice, but not the usual DIPA. Gription79 (2892) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Had on draft at the brewery. Resinous, sweet, caramel malts, fruity hops, a bit of alcohol heat. Meh, not my style of IIPA. This beer could use more hop flavor. Sledutah (7837) - Utah, USA - JAN 15, 2014

Clear golden with a medium sized off-white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is floral and bisquity. Flavors are floral and pine, bitter
On tap at the Barrel House. Pours a copper color with a medium white head. The aroma is big malty sweetness, some caramel and dust. The flavor has some bitterness, maybe some light citrus, but really this is a dry malty brew with caramel and some toasted malts. Really this is an Amber Ale in terms of flavor profile. Nothing wrong with this beer, unless you are searching for a modern big IPA let alone IIPA.

A hazed amber DIPA with a thick mocha head. In aroma, big biscuit malt with smooth floral hops, orange pulp, grassy and smooth. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with loads of grassy piney hops, cloves, grapefruit, malty DIPA. On tap at Portland brewery, Oct. 7 2012. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Draft at ebp. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a creamy, sudsy tan head. Big sweet caramel, tangerine, and citrus nose. Very appealing. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Toast, caramel, and fresh ttopical fruit mid palate. Clean and balanced and straightforward. Big resiny pithy bite at the end. mcberko (18956) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2012
On tap at Cascade, pours an opaque orange with a small beige head. Aroma of citrus hops, orange zest and dry citrus peel. Flavour is huge citrus zest bomb, with dry orange zest / peel dominating, with some biscuit malt to back. Leaves a nice zesty, hoppy astringency on the finish. Surprisingly great. Cascade comes through with a great non-sour.
