look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A- pours golden and clear with a white two finger head
S- definitely bourbon up front, oak, some pine, pepper, some vanilla
T- starts with lots of oak, warm bourbon, vanilla, piney hops, some citrus notes,earthy malt, some peppercorn.
M- thickness comparable to a double ipa
O- this was the best version of an oaked iipa I've ever had. You get the best of both world here, plenty of hop bitterness that gives you pine and citrus from the ipa. On the flip side you get tons of warm bourbon and sweet vanilla and oak. As it warms the amazing bourbon and vanilla get better and better, while maintaining the fresh hop after taste. I'm glad I stuck out the hype to get this. A nice addition to the back stage series, excited to see how this ages a little.

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.
