Randomly stumbled across this beer on a stores Facebook.... Pours orange amber with a lacy foam head. Aroma is very sweet. A lot of vanilla and brown sugar with some citrus and pine notes. The flavor is the exact opposite. I have never had a more appropriately named beer. This beer is a jagged mountain range of harsh flavors. Its brutally hoppy, with a balanced-but-deadly malt signature. Then theres the bourbon flavor that crushes everything else... This is a deadly beer. After a while the flavors meld into a sweet burbony vanilla flavor with hop and citrus tones. Very very complex. Through it all it maintains a hoppy bitter boozy finish that makes you want more and more. This beer is brutal enough for me.... I dont think I could handle anymore...

Love it. Im not a big IPA dude anymore, but this is the imperial to go for in 2017, no doubt. Well balanced mouth feel, goes down easy, slightly sweet, and subdued yet clear hops. Perfect for spring, so it was released at a nice time. Evokes feelings of cool red autumn, but it feels perfect sipping in the May sun. Founders does it again.

Bottled. Really interesting. Pours Amber with little to no head. Aroma is hops, bourbon, and vanilla. Smooth but hoppy. Wow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fidelis83 (2383) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 17, 2017
Clear deep copper to mahogany pour with a two finger, creamy, slightly sudsy head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, lots of mellow vanilla, oak, a hint of sweet wood smoke, sweet juicy citrus and hints of spicy hops. Flavor is bourbon barrel, toasty vanilla, oak (with more noticeable char than the aroma), a hint of anise, lots of caramel, nutty toffee, deep citrusy notes, a hint of charred citrus and light, sweet tree fruit. Medium body, creamy entry; medium, almost spritzy carbonation, off dry, kinda chewy, slightly juicy finish, with just a hint of alcohol warmth and slickness. Really damn tasty, possibly dangerous in the wrong situation, way too drinkable, smooth and oddly refreshing for 12.4%, blackout juice.

jmohno (1595) - Iowa, USA - MAY 11, 2017
Pours a light orange, clear, heady cream, lacey. Malt bourbon and somewhat unidentifiable hops. Woody vanilla. Same in taste, boozy coconut vanilla, bit of cherry wood boourbon. Booze in finish. Freaking 12.4%. Crazy drinkable with a boozy kick.

SG111 (1680) - New York, USA - FEB 27, 2017
Bottled at Clubhouse BFD event. 2013 vintage. Pours golden color, white head. Aroma is citrus, lemon rind, and malty pineapple. some oak, bourbon-ish. Flavor is orange, lemon, oak, caramel maltiness, surprisingly (but not unwelcome) bitter finish. Very solid.

neepsntatties (1955) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle. Colour...deep gold with a thick white head. Nose...big, boozy and hot with deep, dense hops and something like booze soaked corn syrup. Palate...massively cloying and yet incredibly dry, this bad boy reeks of boozy Bourbon barrel goodness and sweetly spiced grapefruit sections. The booze does not relent and carries through the big, dry and hoppy finish.

jbruner (4628) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Bottom of a shared bottle pours a hazy golden orange with minimal bubbly off-white head. Aroma and taste of big bourbon notes over oxidized IPA, burnt caramel, wood, vanilla, sweet and boozy. A bourbon barrel strong ale at this point, but not bad as that, just not an IPA.

Well, I finally opened it. Pours an IPA-golden in the glass. Aromas of bourbon, vanilla, and a little pine hop. Long palate is slick and smooth. Better than bourbon, maybe. Drinkable. Butterscotch, vanilla ice cream, straw, and bourbon.
