750 ml bottle into snifter, bottled in March 2013. Pours fairly hazy bright orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, vanilla, toffee, oak, bourbon, light honey, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops, bourbon barrel, and pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, vanilla, toffee, bourbon, oak, light honey, light pine, and floral/oak earthiness. Good amount of pine/oaky bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, vanilla, toffee, bourbon, oak, light honey, light pine, and floral/oaky earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity and balance of citrus/tropical hops, bourbon barrel, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome barrel aged DIPA with age. All around great complexity and balance of citrus/tropical hops, bourbon barrel, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
