michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Draught at TJs: Pungent aroma of hops, pine, grapefruit, tropical fruit, spruce, and slight caramel malt. Poured amber/gold in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Slightly hazy. Not sparkling. Excellent lacing. Light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of light alcohol, hops, pine, spruce, light resin, light wood, slight orange, and a hint of coconut. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Hops, pine, and light alcohol finish is dry. Mildly alcohol-hot. Very drinkable for 10.5%ABV.

coyotehunter (698) - , Michigan, USA - SEP 25, 2009
On tap at Founders 9/24/09. Pours a goldish orange with minimal head. Aroma is of Oak, packing tape, some hops and sweet something or another. Taste is quite astringent....Something akin to Devil Dancer with a shitpile of rubbing alcohol dumped in. Rather boozy disaster of a beer considering the source.

TURDFERGUSON (4055) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2009
Draught at Tylers in Carrboro. Pours a clear golden with a small white lace. Nose of fresh hops, heavy grapefruit rind, alcohol, rubber cement, regular glue, mild woody weirdness. Messy. Flavor is oak and sweet vanilla upfront, more glue, grapefruit, and booze. Also tasted some peanut butter at some point and no I havent consumed peanut butter in months so it wasnt that. Astringent, paint thinner-like finish. Pretty poor showing if you ask me.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2013 Tap at Tylers Taproom in Carrboro. Disclaimer: their draft lines are questionable right now so not sure how this affected the flavor. Pours a soft peach skin amber with a one finger eggshell white head. The nose is pretty nice, citrusy with some grapefruit rind. Nice hop character with some mild forbear to the oak. Flavor shows some oak and phenol upfront, harsh bitterness and tannic combination, American oak?, flavor of vanilla bean. Tannic and astringent on the palate. Flavor is a bit strange and not sure if its the beer or the bar. BOTTLE Pours a very very pretty sharp bright gold with two fingers of sticky white head. Nose shows lots of bourbon and a distinctly creamy vanilla note and touch of citrus. Sharp/strong bourbon character in the flavor with a distinct cream soda character. Sharp citrus rind shows on the finish and the alcohol is not completely undetectable. Full in body and finish. Enjoyed it.

Served on tap at Founders Brewing Company. Pours a brilliant gold. Aromas are creamy hops and oak. Nice oak flavors, they blend well with the hop deliciousness. Some vanilla builds through the drink as well as some spiced oak, almost a bourbon flavor.

Dans Bachelor Party Extended Weekend Rating #47 of 90. On tap at Founders in Grand Rapids. Pours slight hazy, golden. Not nearly as appealing in appearance as it is in taste. Has a strong citrus hop nose and great refreshing hop taste. Very good.

OldGrowth (3367) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Pint, bartenders mistake, at Raleigh Times. Good aroma, sweet, vanilla and toffee, orange, maybe a little apricot, occasional biscuit. Clean lite brownish orange, Small head, minor lace. Bitter sweet flavor, Big bitter bite with the sweet jumping in late. Heavy body, thick oily creamy mouthfeel, bitter dry finish. Well, I liked it, but I wasnt wanting another, though that was in part because first bartender poured a full pint. the other part being, as ucusty noted, barrel aged ipas just seem some what self defeating. Still it got better as it warmed and the fruitier notes came through.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Tap at the Raleigh Times. Hazy amber pour with a frothy off white head. Oaky tannins, bourbon, vanilla, and light citrus on the nose. Big bitter mouth-feel. Creamy up front. Flavor is grapefruit, pine, oak, bourbon, and floral notes. Decent but Im willing to bet the base beer is better, I just cant seem to get into the BA IPAs being somewhat of a hop head I feel like Barrel aging IPAs takes away from the hops. Hops are supposed to be the forefront of this style instead they take a back seat

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2009
On tap at Founders. Golden pour with white head. Juicy fruit sweet aroma, some spice and oak notes, grapefruit hops. Flavor is subdued in the hop portion, instead giving way to a thick bourbon sweetness. Candy sugar, vanilla, and citrus mostly. Thick on the palate and tasty to drink. Im not sure the barrel improves the beer, but it gives the beer an interesting dimension.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2009
On tap at Glass Nickel. Poured clear medium golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma was very sweet with pale malts, grapefruit meat, and vanilla leading.. the juicy sweetness actually managed to mask both the booze and most of the barrel impression. The barrel showed up in the flavor department.. lots of spicy bourbon and peppery oak notes pounded on non-descript pale malts.. pine and white peppery bitterness surrounded, but was somewhat muted.. sharp and not enjoyable. Heavier-bodied with a full feel on the palate from creamy carbonation.. very sweet.. in the end there was too much barrel, poor integration, and some oxidation.
