Found a bottle of this at HyVee. The beer stores sold out right away. I quickly snatched it up and am drinking it as soon as I get home.
Poured a pretty clear golden color. Not overly heady but good lacing.
Immediate nose is oak/whiskey barrel with vanilla and booze.
Taste: Quite a nice twist to others. Plenty of bourbon flavor but also a nice hops profile. This is not on the Cascade side, it is more tropical and mellow. Some of the hop intensity probably mellowed with aging. You know what, that is OK once in a while. Other hints of sweetness and vanilla finish this out.
Mouthfeel is a true delight. Very creamy with average carbonation. I like this.
A very distinctive and enjoyable drink. I can't think of whiskey barrel aged IPA that I have had. Too bad it is limited to a few bottles.
Serving type: bottle
