HoppyAlesToYou (167) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Some citric, pine, vanilla, and bourbon on the nose, but not enough of anything to make it very appealing. It pours well into a Greenbush snifter, but flattens quickly as it warms. Taste is mild sweetness followed by medium bitterness, but the mouth feel is too light. I was underwhelmed overall.

Bottle, trade with umich03jm. Two years old. Pours with a big head and aroma of sweet malt and not a lot more than that. Flavor is almost all malt, not sweet but without interesting notes. Moderately bitter, very slight barrel notes. Probably did not handle cellaring well; any lose of hop aroma or bitterness was a negative for this one.

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.

Sample at HMOG. I am not usually one for an aged IPA but this one is now bordering on barley wine status. Hops are totally faded from the aroma but you are still left with a decently bodied caramel sweet drink. Bourbon is slight but there more in an alcoholic way than a sweet way. Either way, glad a got a chance to try it.

jbruner (4377) - 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.

On tap at Macgregors. Pour is hazed golden amber with white head. Nose is light bourbon, sticky caramel, pine resign, touch of pine sol. Taste is a little bourbon(much less than KBS), still sticky resigny hop, notes of citrus and lots of pine.

The added complexity from the bourbon is phenomenal. Great vanilla notes along with the smooth bourbon finish
