Would never guess the abv on this. Aroma is boozy, fresh paint, weeds, and floral. Cloudy orange yellow. Taste is bitter hops with an ending of sweet bitters. A touch of orange. Tap monkeychugg55 (1090) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JUL 10, 2017
Golden orange with a small white head. There is a lot of bourbon barrel in the aroma, with vanilla, oak, whiskey, and peppery alcohol. You can notice some fruity and floral hops in the background, with some sweet toasted caramel. Nice mix of hoppy beer and whiskey barrel in the flavor. A little hot on the finish but pretty good. jrodooo5 (1672) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUL 9, 2017
Beautiful copper pour w/ a white head & ring of lacing. The aroma has citrus hops, booze, & a hint of vanilla & oak. The flavor is boldly filled w/ hops for nearly all of the taste until a bit of vanilla & oak slightly mellow out the intense hops in the finish. The bitterness & somewhat dryness remains for the duration. Not my favorite style but I can appreciate the powerfulness! MrTipple (4955) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2017
Overripe tropical fruits, mango, bitter orange, orange peel, candied orange, pine. Clear, dark gold, tiny, creamy, white head. Medium bitter. More bitter citrus and tropical fruits, very boozy, strong alcohol burn, dry and bitter finish, soft carbonation, full bodied. Interesting IIPA, nice barrel flavours in aroma, but way too boozy otherwise. Keg at The Understudy, Waterloo. DavidWoodruff (619) - Windsor, California, USA - JUL 8, 2017
Red/gold with a thick cream-colored head. Pineapple aroma with notes of pine. Big pineapple flavor. Boozy, woody and very tasty.

Had to fight to get any kind of a head on this brew. What was there was a thin off white foam that dissipated quickly. There is a bit of carbonation emanating from the bottom of my glass so there is hope still. Interesting combination of aromas. Light floral hops and some spearmint melding with butterscotch and seawater. Color is a pretty clear golden brown. Wow, the flavor lives up to the booking. Lots of herbal and piney hops, resinous and coats the mouth. A dry bitterness backed by just a minor hint of sweetness and butterscotch which is quickly fleeting. Then the right cross to the jaw from the alcohol. Hot, spicy, burning the gums and tongue. A little overpowering. Lingering dryness and chalkiness. This brew is much much drier than I expected. Balanced superbly. A fantastic brew. One to be slowly savored and enjoyed. pcahill (2) - - JUL 8, 2017 does not count
Hoppy IPA with a bourbon aged finish-- everything I want in a beer. Perfection. Need to find this on tap.

Clear orange beer with nice head on top leaving lacing behind as it dissolves. Aroma has sweet caramel malts, barley malts, huge malt body with pines and grass hops and wooden barrel notes. Booze comes through after warming up. Full body and medium carbonation. VastActiv (7032) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2017
Tap at CBH 2017, Helsinki. Cloudy orange with small white head. Aromas and flavors: Pine, resiny, dryness, some fruits, hops and malts. Surprisingly hoppy for a barrel aged IPA. Some burning alcohol. RedSox2004 (1890) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUL 7, 2017
Clear copper with a two-finger eggshell head and very nice lace. Aromas of pine resin and earth with grapefruit and a touch of caramel. Resinous hop bitterness up front followed by a deep malt sweetness, accompanied by bourbon and smoke. Full bodied, mild carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a boozy finish.
