Big thanks to my cousin Sonny down in FL for sending this one up to me. Pappy aged IPA, not sure I have heard of that specific combo before. Just had the regular 10-10-10 the other night.

A- 750ml poured to a deep tulip glass and a pint glass for sharing. The beer itself has an amber body and a one finger, frothy off-white head forms. Pretty good retention. Thick, bubbly ring leaves ample webbed sheets of lace.

S- Whiskey comes off big but is not harsh in any way. The barrels bring vanilla sweetness, medium toasted oak and soothing Bourbon notes. IPA takes a bit of a back seat here but the toasty caramelized malts and citrus hops poke through.

T- Barrels carry over from the nose and are the most prevalent part of the flavor. Compared to the nose, more blending takes place here. A wide range of things like notes of vanilla oak sweetness, toasted wood, smooth whiskey, cocoa, pepper, caramel, toast, grapefruit and citrus hops. It all weaves together like a cocktail.

MF- Body seems a bit thinner than the 10-10-10 original, medium overall. Carbonation is at a moderate-low level for the style but a silky, smooth creamy texture overtakes the taste buds like a pillow. Finishes with a mixture of alcohol warming and hop bitterness.

I am pretty sure the only other Bourbon DIPA I have had is Doom from Founders. This is a much different beer in every way but I think this style of beer works well for several reasons. The whiskey and barrel flavors combine well with citrus hops, think whiskey sour in a way. Overall it feels like I am drinking a fairly strong whiskey cocktail crafted very well. Also, the actual flavors from the barrel are fantasic, soothing oak vanilla.
