A: gorgeous light orange, slightly rustic and when backlit becomes an awesome golden color. it creates a terrific 1-2 fingers worth of bright white head that is fairly dense. with nice lacing
S: immense orange peel comes forward and is quite dominating. slightly medicinal, more orange peel citrus. very one dimensional.
T: again, monstrous citrus notes. there is a slight bourbon barrel sweetness presence right in the middle and there is a oaky finish along with some bitter hops
M: quite light, but it fits this beer perfectly. it leaves a strong orange peel flavor on the palate with a a hop bitterness.
O:: LET THIS ONE WARM FOR A BIT!!! cold, it i s too sweet, one dimensional and and citrus forward. but as it warmed up and got closer to room temp, i found that the hops started to come forward and began to balance the brew out a bit better. It is not a bad beer, but its not something that I would go crazy about in obtaining.

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.
