Transparent orange colored ale that appears thick on the pour. Rich, creamy, off-white head with excellent retention and plenty of lacing.
Sweet fruit aroma of tangerine, ripe apricot and mango. Subtle pine in the mix as well as oak bourbon character.
Fruit flavors come through right away with a nectar-like, tropical sweetness. Hops quickly follow, drying grapefruit and pine. Dense and oily. Well balanced. Finish is smooth and dry at the same time with hints of oak.
Full bodied and sticky feel. Well carbonated for the strength.
This is actually better than I expected. When I thought about a barrel aged DIPA, I didn't think it sounded that great but the flavors actually work pretty well together. The hops do taste a little old but they work well with the dense malt character. Well done.
