look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
750ml poured into a snifter, cooled in the fridge for about 2.5 hours before serving. I was very surprised to snag this one off the shelf at a local shop today, thought these were long gone.
A- Looks like Double Trouble. Pours a clear and bubbly light orange/ amber color. A half finger of off-white head sticks around for awhile before forming along the side. Some lacing is also noted.
S- All I really get in the smell is some slight citrus notes, like a faded DIPA. There is some very slight sweet vanilla notes too as the beer warms. No bourbon to speak of in the smell for me.
T- Sweet malty opening gives way to some piney and citrus hops. I also get some oakiness with vanilla toward the back of each taste. The alcohol is noted and this one is drinking kind of hot right now, which isn't necessarily bad.
M- Smooth yet very bitter and dry finish, well carbonated. This beer is still very hoppy.
Though it's good I was expecting more from the barrel aging, but I guess I don't know what I was expecting since I've never had a BA DIPA. It is a good beer however and I'm going to try and get my hands on another to age. I'm interested to find out what happens to this beer when the hops fade.
