A= Pours a totally translucent ginger ale dark piss sort of color with a nice two fingers of head on it that holds nice retention and lacing on the glass.
S= The smell is quite hot to be honest. A lot of the bourbon barrel comes through in the nose. There is a nice hop aroma that comes through as well but the aroma is dominated by bourbon, vanilla, and hot alcohol.
T= The taste is similar to the nose. A little lighter on the alcohol but that may be bacause the hop profile is amplified hiding a bit of the booze. The bourbon comes through greatly and there is a nice vanilla aroma. It actually isn't as bad as I though coming from the nose but I still don't think it's on par with some of the other bourbon barrel IPAs I've had.
M= The mouth is great on this one. Nice soft beer.
O= Founders makes some amazing beers. This just so happens to not be one of my favorites. It's still a solid beer but it's not as mind blowing as I was hoping. This beer is good but not great. Try it and see for yourself. I was hoping for a bit more of a hop punch. Maybe another dry hopping or something. Who knows.
