Draft. Hazy golden yellow, small white head, solid lacing. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon. Taste is mostly bourbon, a bit of vanilla, white wine. I don’t fully understand aging IPAs or DIPAs, but there you go. omhper (25346) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2017
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Clear bronze colour, rich head. Aroma of coconut, vanilla and fruit punch. Sweet with full body and rounded mouthfeel. Syrup and lots of vanilla, piña colada and white pepper. Warming tongue numbing finish. Big flavours, but not all pleasant. Mixing heavy hops and bourbon barrel has never worked before, and doesn’t work this time. madmitch76 (25101) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2012

Hazy gold beer. Little white head. A little orange cream on the nose. Softish palate, a little syrupy and dry. Wonderful hops - orange, pineapple and pine which are all wrapped in a honey sweetness. Finishes soft and dry with bitter marmalade flavours and a pinch of black pepper. A marvellous sweet bitter fruity DIPA. Top drawer!
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2013 Wenig hopfiger Antrunk, der aber milder und schwerer ausfällt als bei anderen IPAs. Runde Bourbonnoten, etwas Karamell, süßlich. Vanille, sehr süffig, dennoch ist der Alkoholgehalt deutlich erkennbar. Gut. 12/11/10/10/11/10 mcberko (18389) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 18, 2013
750mL bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Nose brings out heavy bourbon notes, wood and some resinous hops. Flavour brings out loads of bourbon notes, some sugary notes / residual sugars, subdued resinous hops, and lots of alcohol. The bourbon barrels are done very well, but completely take out the hops - so it doesn’t seem like a IIPA at all. Fairly sugary and boozy, but it’s all in good proportion. Surprisingly good, but I still don’t see the point of barrel aging an IPA. chrisv10 (17920) - DENMARK - SEP 15, 2017
