On tap at Newhall Refinery in Newhall, CA.

Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, citrus zest, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest, brown sugar, vanilla, bourbon, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop and wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a bourbon barrel presence that seems fairly subdued compared to the hop profile in the base beer.

3.8/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: mahogany, deep red, well carbonated: when swirled/agitated, even after 10 or 15 minutes quarter of an inch of thick head forms.
Nose: Apple, Spices, woody, small amounts of pine
Taste: bitter, bright, piny,
Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied
Overall: A great brew, served it straight out of the fridge, which was a bad idea, but once it warmed up we started getting more flavor from it. I'm not a huge hophead, so idk if I'd seek this out again, but if it's offered I'll definitely partake.
