Short lived head, recedes to cap and collar. Bright orange body. Looks TEMPting.

Vanilla, rye whiskey notes.

Tropical fruits in the forefront, pineapples and mangoes. Contributing boozy barrel notes to finish. Hides the abv very well.

Very full mouthfeel for the style. Low carbonation, works.

BA notes reminiscent of Rye Wyne which I enjoyed a lot. Thanks 4DAloveofSTOUT!

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear deep orange. Small white head that doesn't last.

Smell - Nice whiskey. Oak. Some hops.

Taste - Great whiskey. Rye is very prominent. Pale malt. Some hops still, but muted. Boozy finish.

Mouthfeel - Boozy. Sharp finish. Medium body.

Overall - Good barrel and it's a very light beer. I'm impressed it comes out.

Thanks to redblacks75 for graciously sharing a bottle with me on my Iowa trip.

Pours bright copper/orange with a small spotty white head. Good retention and some legs on the glass.

Big spicy rye aroma with caramel, vanilla and candied grapefruit to back it up.

Flavor is even better than the smell. The interplay between candied citrus and rye spices up front surprisingly works very well together. There is a hefty caramel backbone as well with a good helping of vanilla. A little smoky at times and finishes with a slight alcohol tinge along with some grapefruit pith.

Medium bodied a bit sticky and appropriate medium carbonation. Alcohol is present, but warming and doesn't overpower other elements.

Hands down the best barrel aged (I)PA I've ever had. Usually I detest this style as I find the barrel overwhelms a lot of the delicate characteristics of the base and the hops clash with the overall profile (see Doom). This has a hefty caramel malt backbone leaning heavily toward a barleywine which makes it really work. The hops taste almost like candied citrus which is a great contrast to the spicy whiskey. I wish I would've popped the other bottle of this to take home even at bar prices.

first batch of Naughty Temple. Thanks Clark!

poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: orangish yellow bodied beer with a thick cap of white head that drops down to thin ring around the glass.

Smell: vanilla, whiskey, pineapple, and oak.

Taste: Vanilla, butterscotch, whiskey, rye barrel notes. Very barrel forward. Mild hops of pineapple and tropical fruit hop notes on the back end. Unique flavor profile!

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with low end of moderate carbonation levels. Slightly boozey kick thats not too over board.

Overall: This is the best barrel aged IPA that I have ever drank! i know that this style of beer is not very common. The Templeton Rye notes are really prevolent. If you love Templeton Rye Whiskey...this is a beer you gotta try! Toppling Goliath yet again shows us that they are a kick ass brewery with a serious passion for craft beer! This beer really pushes the envelope for this specific beers style... in a good way!
