M - medium to full bodied, warm, smooth, well carbonated
This is an interesting beer. The bourbon barrels definitely impart their flavors on this IPA. The bourbon is forward and intense. The barrels add some woodyness as well. The malt character is almost perfect for what needed to be done to add balance to this beer. The hops, however, are a bit subdued and don't come through over the intense bourbon notes. Overall, this is an intense beer that is worth trying but to me it's more of a strong ale than a DIPA.
