2.76/5  rDev -32.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

It looks like an IPA and has the clarity to match. NIce orange color, smallish head when poured that dissipates quickly. Nice lacing as you drink it down, though.

Upon first smell, bourbon comes through front and center. I think the bourbon smell overpowers everything else. If you think long and hard while you're smelling, you can detect the hops slightly and the malt/bread smell even more slightly.

Bourbon comes through on the taste as well. But as you drink it, the hops leaves that familiar bitter feeling on the back of your tongue. But the hops does not come through over the bourbon flavor. You more sense the hops presence than actually taste the hops.

Mouthfeel is good, nice carbonation, nice body. I enjoyed tasting this one, but it leaves me wishing for a true DIPA rather than feeling like I just did a shot of bourbon, tastewise. Glad I tried it but probably won't try it again.
