Had at Glunz Global Beer Expo XIX. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a big, off white head. Had strong aromas of bourbon, molasses, brown sugar, and butterscotch. The hops are clearly diminished, but the malt and bourbon make this one of the more peculiar beers I have ever tried. The bourbon leaves a strong aftertaste, but the alcohol was undetected. This is a big, slow sipper that should be tried by any beer fan.

Pours a clear amber with carbonation with white head. A strong caramel malt, citrus hop and vanilla aroma. A strong bourbon taste with caramel malts and hops. A lingering borubon and sweet malt aftertaste.

To my husband's delight had this bottle in the Basking Ridge. Always love a nice strong alcohol taste in my beer, really amazing imperial IPA. Really amazing beer, I'm feeling sad that it will soon end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Msdrbeat (735) - East Lansing, USA - MAY 23, 2017
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 (1596) - 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 (1684) - 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 (4630) - 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.
