served on tap at the brewery

Pours a lightly hazed auburn copper color with a one-finger high crop of white head resting on top. Fades into a cloud of film, leaving a spotty coating of film on the glass while drinking.

Familiar citrusy and tropical hop punch from the base beer in the nose, trailed by citrus zest, orange and grapefruit. Caramel and bread crust malts with toasted notes, oak and a hint of vanilla. Bourbon warmth lurks underneath.

Bitter smack of West coast style hops with grapefruit and pithy citrus right up front. Slight tropical touch with a hint of pineapple and light sweetness. Fuller backbone with caramel and bread crust. Vanilla and bourbon notes with charred oak and sticky resin. The boozy build up from the barrel aging builds more on the back end, delivering a mild heat which meshes pretty well with the aggressive-leaning hop profile.

Medium body, decent carbonation, sticky, dry and lingering on the tongue. Barrel aging IPAs is infrequently successful, but I enjoyed the added dimension of bourbon, vanilla and oak as it didn't completely wreck the rest of the profile.

an opaque dark copper in color with 2 fingers of white fluffy head which dissipated into great lacing. smells of vanilla, banana, oak, caramel. the flavors are pretty different than their standard head high, this is a whole different beast. spicy bitterness up front followed by a sweet blast of caramel, vanilla, and oak flavors. there is a hint of banana as well.. absolutely nothing like head high in my opinion, but a great barrel aged beer. it's medium in body with a modest amount of carbonation. slightly creamy. not as easy to drink as head high was, but as far as barrel aged beers it's very drinkable.

glad we stumbled upon this at joe canal's.. forgot it was even friday, checked to see their specialty tap and it was this! great beer.. a little pricy, but it's my birthday/anniversary weekend - i think i can live a little ;)
