Fresh bottle from Brawley's

Poured into a Sierra Nevada IPA glass

Lots of white head. Nice oaky smell. Taste is slightly sweet from the honey and you get a very mellow bourbony/oak flavor. Very hoppy, with bitterness that lingers for several minutes.

I think ratings on this one will all depend on what you had hoped the barrel would add to it. I like that it didn't hide the hops.

I'm pretty impressed. Wasn't sure I was going to like it. Went back and bought another.

My favorite from Triple C by far.

22oz Bomber

Bottle 7/4/14

Wilson tossed me this bottle as I walked out the door. Thanks, guy! The body glows ruby from pour to glass. Orange hues tamper down the glow in the glass while bubbles creep up the sides in streams. The head is mellow and linen white, while falling to a thin cap it manages to leave silky sheet lacing down every surface it touched. Looks delicious!

The nose is slam packed with dense orange oils, bordering on dankness. Clean alcohol adds some spiciness while tickling the nose. The barrel aging is subtle with a hint of vanilla and a helping of sandalwood that really adds to the overall depth.With warming comes a smattering of tropical notes in the background. Unique and savory.

As dense and potent as the nose seems to be the flavor is more subtle and well balanced. The orange oils are rich from start to finish, growing in intensity on their way through. A touch of vanilla pops up in the middle and sandalwood always seems to be on the periphery. Caramel is a sturdy malt backbone. Alcohol, again, adds a bit of spice. The orange oils bitter up nicely on the swallow.

The body has heft, leaning toward the full side of the spectrum. Hop bitterness is large and in charge while tannic dryness seems to accentuate it even more. Tannins and alcohol both seem to dry up the body, the alcohol leaving some soft fumes in it's wake. The bitterness lingers. Drinkability is good for such a big beer.

Barrel aged IPAs have always seemed a weird creation to me but oddly enough I've had some really great ones in the past. Coming in Hops is another good example. The dense orange oils play well with sandalwood. The bitterness is big and yet the drinkability, for such a huge beer, is up there. Thanks again, Wil!

A - Pours a slightly hazy orange copper with a finger of frothy off-white head. Fantastic lacing, decent retention.

S - Wood, oaky, orange rinds, boozy pears, lemon, bourbon and a bit malty sweet.

T - Initially very oaky a boozy with hints of lighter fruits (pears, apples). Transitions more of an ipa/pale profile shortly after, lots of orange/pears, slightly bitter and peppery. A bit malty sweet at the finish. Aftertaste is mostly spiced bitterness.

M - Medium bodied, good carbonation, pretty drinkable.

O - Boozyness is a bit off putting, an awful lot going on with this beer. its grown on me as I consume but boozy oakyness doesnt blend so well with this sweeter DIPA
