Had on draft at Fireworks Pizza Arlington on 4/1/14

A-Pours bright gold with a bright white 1 finger head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Good lacing

S-Bourbon aromas with oak, vanilla and caramel

T-Same as aroma but with the caramel upfront turning to bourbon In the lasting finish

M-Mouthfeel is well balanced and medium body with good carbonation

O-I thought with the bourbon it did some improvement to the beer

Clear gold in color. White head with a lot of lace. Beautiful.

Flavor profile: bananas and cloves with other spices up front. A touch of vanilla. Maybe some melon flavors as well. Very oaky. Lots of bourbon. The hop profile is somewhat hidden until the finish. Herbal and earthy hops. Very unique flavor profile.

Mouthfeel: smooth at first, then the bitterness hits. Medium bodied. Good amount of carbonation.

Overall, a very enjoyable beer, but I would have never guessed this to be a pale. Very complex for a pale. Moderate drinkability.

Really impressed. Tasted at a tap takeover in Boston in a tulip glass. They really nailed this one in my mind. Great balance, strong, but not overwhelming on the nose and mid-palate and a nice, long, sweet finish. Nice hints of vanilla and oak. Would not have expected that a Bourbon Aged Pale Ale would turn out this impressive. I has a glass the next day with breakfast -- went perfectly with eggs, bacon and sausage. Go for it.
