Definitely has that fort george ipa character to it. smells and tastes like other ipa's from them, only with some oak and light bourbon flavor. barrel aging lessens the bitterness but allows nice hops to show through. good beer, i feel like its underrated.

On tap at the recent de Garde release event.

I'm generally not a big fan of barrel aged IPA's, but this wasn't too bad. The barrel aging muted the bitterness, but there was still plenty of tropical fruit, spice and bourbon. Overall, a pretty tasty beer that was fun to try at the release event.

Pour is hazed dark golden amber with a tight white head. Nose has a lot of citrus, some sweet malt up front, oranges in back. Taste is very sweet and a bit boozy. Sweet malt backbone, citrus hops, a bit of vodka and messy grainy alcohol. Body is medium with an assertive carb and a bit of a grainy feel.
