This ale pours a hazy orange copper color with a small off white head that gives way to a nice film and lacing. The nose is a delicious blend of citrus hops and rich bourbon barrel notes. There's a lot of alcohol on the nose as well as vanilla, oak, citrus, pineapple, and pine. The mouthfeel is smooth but coating. It leaves a pleasant and lasting flavor of hops and bourbon long after the sip. The flavor is a very nice blend of fresh tropical/citrus hops and rich bourbon barrel flavors. Caramel, vanilla, and oak intermingle with grapefruit, tangerine, pine, and mango. This is an interesting take on an ipa. I doubted whether it would work given that CPA is a citrus forward and in no way malty ale and that bba usually works best with maltier offerings, but Oddsides definitely made it work. This is worth a taste if for no other reason than to try something different.

Poured from a 120z bottle into a pint glass. Appearance is a murky rust brown color, not all that pleasing to the eyes.

Smells a little funky. Definite citrus, obviously from the citra hops, but the slightest hint of whiskey gives it a funky smell, reminiscent of a Long Island iced tea.

Taste is a bit disappointing, though not horribly disappointing as I'm only slightly a fan of OddSides CPA to begin with. Tastes exactly as it smells, like CPA but with a whiskey mixing with fruit funk.

Mouthfeel is nothing to write home about, heavy, slight whiskey, stale fruit, not too appealing.

Overall I'm just a little let down that their BA-CPA is a total flop.
