Pours a clean deep amber color, mahogany-like with medium beige head. Aroma has lots of bourbon, grass, pine, caramel/toffee and citrus. Taste follows the nose, lots of alcohol burn, but not uncomfortable, strong bourbon-whisky character, citrus, grapefruit, grass, pine and caramel. Bitter ending to it. spacecube (1810) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2017
Bottle from house of trembling madness. Pours a darker gold with a small foamy white head. Aroma is smooth bourbon, caramel malts, pine, juicy fruit salad. Very well balanced, not much alcohol burn, heavy smooth, think I'm off to sleep in a minute. Medium bodied, smooth oily texture, very light carbonation. Finish has some sweetness but ends in a balance of hop bitterness and bourbon. BenCL (19) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2017
Drank on 13/12/2017, from I.B.S.
Appearance: 2.5 – Slightly translucent orange sunset, nice head with slight lacing.
Smell/Aroma: 2.5 – Mango, fruity, slightly malty.
Taste: 3 – Like a moderate IPA with a fruity hop character, has that malt sweetness. then a hop hit to the front of the tongue. Then you get this bitterness at the back and, OK 12% theres the slight alcohol. So well hidden, scary. Its big but in stages.Gets more sweet malts as you sip and it warms.
Mouthfeel/Palate: 2.5 – Its all over with the bitterness. None of it bad.
Over all: 3.5 – This is kinda good, its bourbon barrel aged and an Imperial IPA, its heaps hoppy but its balanced with the hot alcohol and the sweet malts that cover that. This is stupid big, but drinkable. simontomlinson (677) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2017
Off white bubbly head stayed on a hazy dark copper coloured, finely carbonated body.
Malt, caramel, over stewed fruit & grape aroma.
Medium to full bodied. Thick, cloying with minimal carbonation & a prickly finish.
Taste is much as the aroma with caramel, over stewed fruit, bitter hoppy citrus, spices & hints of cloves.
Very rich - a real sipper KyotoLefty (10810) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 9, 2017
Bottle at Len. Nose is bourbon, vanilla, grapefruit, wood. Pretty orange-amber color with a low head and hazy. Boozy bourbon up front, sweet caramel and vanilla evolves into a very dry finish. So easy to drink for the weight. Lovely.

Bottle, thanks Gregg! Deep orange pour, some beige foam. Sweet boozy nose, sticky and syrupy already from the beginning. Tatse has lots of bourbon booze, coconut and vanilla. Warming you up a bit - which is useful when you are tasting it outside at 4 degrees Celsius. Herbal and bitter lingering finish, heavy and rough but at the same time balanced with sweetness. Liking this a lot. szymonskc (1066) - Skórcz, POLAND - DEC 8, 2017
