750mL bottle, shared with a friend; blind tasting for me. Bright amber colored ale with a frothy, white head that holds excellent retention and leaves some lacing down the glass. Aromas are fruity, citric, tropical, grapefruit, bourbon (which totally threw me off). Bourbon is obvious on the palate, with vanilla, citrus, pungent grapefruit, oak, some tropical notes in there as well. Very creamy and smooth mouth-feel, full body, nice carbonation. Finishes very dry and bitter, but it's still well balanced with plenty of malt backbone. Boozy at times, but not too hot. The bourbon is different but acceptable. At first I wasn't so sure. Very unique beer, and well crafted. For its price I wouldn't seek out another bottle of this, but it was definitely a treat!

A- Poured into a brandy snifter. Nice golden hazy yellowish amber color. The pour didn't get much of a head at all.
S- Very strong bourbon smell along with a nice citrus hop upfront with slight smells of vanilla. Oak was detected on further sniffs. This really means to please the nose.
T- Nice big hop upfront (crisp fuity grapefruit/citrus) along with oak flavor. The bourbon makes an appearance midway through the flavors and ends with a nice vanilla ending. The vanilla comes through huge when more than a sip is taken.
M- Good crisp and clean mouthfeel. This beer glides over the tounge from the good carbonation. Leaves a hoppy taste on the palate along with a nice vanilla taste as well. Overall pretty good per mouthfeel.
O- I was more than surprised with this and am happy I tried it.
