Picked up from a generous local BA. Thanks bro!
Poured into duvel tulip
Pours a deep gold, bit of haze, nice white head, looks good, inviting.
Huge bourbon on the nose, hops hiding in there, some pine touch of citrus. Where my hops at?
First sip... huge boozy bourbon, big bitter... second sip, booze and bitter. third sip oh, theres some citrus in there, bit of orange zest. but this is all barrel here. Honestly, tastes like orange cough syrup to me.
good mouthfeel, not to thick.
I don't think im a fan of the style. The barrel, booze, and hops just don't come together for me. the barrel kills the attributes that I look for in an ipa.

Overall 87/100

Mega bourbon flavor, very crushing from the go. Monster notes of caramel, bourbon, vanilla. Perhaps a bit muddled and heavy. Is hot and stingy. Almost a sipper. Otherwise the full flavor is dynamic. Almost amazing how much flavor is on it. No real hop presence is really notable, much less predominant. In a way is counter productive to what most seek out In an IPA. That said, its a rest I would like to taste again~
