Bottle... Not fresh. :/ my parents live in gr so they got the bottles and I picked them up for Christmas. And still have one in the cellar... Anyway. Aroma is like a stale orange or so. Apricot. Yeah there’s hints of bourbon. Oaky. Looks fine. Hazy sunset orange. Good lacing. Taste is like the smell. Orange. Bourbon. Oaky. Grapefruit... Apricot... Solid palate. It’s a little aggressive but pretty smooth overall. The flavors sort of mash together.... A good beer overall but really not mind blowing. The IPA notes and the oaky bourbon notes really sort of mash together. Unique but I’m not sure if it’s working 100%.

EdKing (2663) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2018
Bottle at the We Brought Beer CBS Tasting. Good start to the night. Toasty looking amber with a decent sized head. Nose is like a hoppy barley wine or an old school Imperial IPA. Marmalade, toffee, pine, barley sugar, barley grain chaff, hints of bourbon sweetness, barrel wood, candy sugar, grapefruit and orange bitter citrus. Taste is toffee, barley sugar, marmalade, orange and grapefruit peel citrus, wood tannins, bitter citruses. Mouthfeel is sticky, hop dry and sweet. Good balance.

Bootle. Pours gold. I don't feel the IPA. More like an Old Ale or Barleywine. Pine and herbal aroma. Strong alcohol/scotch aroma. Dry, mid bitterness. Really loving it

Calisky (3150) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JAN 1, 2018
Couleur ambrée, légère mousse. Super nez sur le chêne vanillé, leger houblon résineux. Gout sur le chêne (un peu liquoreux) et vanille, avec alcool et houblon résineux et herbeux voir note chocolat et caramel en fin de bouche. Bon corps. Fin bien amere houblonnée avec note de chêne. Superbe et ronde en bouche!!

Alpha10 (860) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2017
2017/12/30 - Pours a hazy orange amber colour with a thick, foamy, off white head that slowly reduces and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel, citrus notes, pine, wood, bourbon, vanilla and lightly floral notes. Taste is a caramel backbone with, citrus, pine, wood, vanilla and hot bourbon. Mouthfeel is medium and oily with soft carbonation and a sweet, dry, warming finish. A nice IPA with lots of warming boozy notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dzurek (463) - Szczecin, POLAND - DEC 30, 2017
Barwa ciemnobursztynowa, klarowna, piana obfita, średniopęcherzykowa. Aromat to głownie beczka w postaci szlachetnego alkoholu, lekkiej wanilii i kokosa. Jest też sporo karmelu. Za tym wszystkim trochę tylko cytrusów. W smaku pełne, oleiste, alkohol niewyczuwalny. Owoców cytrusowych znowu niewiele, w smaku dominuje karmel, którego jest naprawdę sporo. Ciężko też wychwycić wpływ beczki. Goryczka wysoka, wysycenie średnie, wysoka słodycz. Dobre, ale za dużo tego karmelu, do tego beczka trochę się rozmyła w smaku.

k0mpsa (3160) - Tuusula, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2017
Bottle. Hazy deep golden color, white head. Aroma has oaky notes, hops, some malts. Hoppy body, oaky notes, malts on the back. Nice complex imperial ipa.

3.3
Niall73 (2459) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2017
Bottle. Pours a dark reddy brown with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, over-ripe fruit and caramel. Medium body, medium carb. Too sweet for my taste - lots of caramel, with pineapple, lemon, orange, white toast, pine... OK.
