Served on tap at Ashley's in Westland, MI.
Appearance- Slightly hazy golden copper, with some agitated spring water bubbling going on, with a creamy 1/4 inch of head. Tons of webby lacing hangs out on the glass.
Smell- Smells like a strawberry shortcake. Straight up. Syrupy fruity, sharp and tangy strawberry note, honey, big biscuity malt undertone.
Taste- Big tangy hop attack, Canadian whiskey smoothness, citrusy, grassy hops, caramel, and acidic mineral water. A bit of yeasty, malty note, before a smooth big, charred bourbony smooth finish. Complex, but very direct bourbon + IPA combo.
Mouthfeel- Smooth and creamy from start to finish, with a hint of bourbon burn on the palate.
Overall- This is a great example of a bourbon barrelled IPA, and a Michigan gem. Very well balanced between the bourbon bite, and the hop bite. One of Short's brewing's best. If you have a chance to get it, try it. This is a no BS brew. How it should be done.

Had on draft multiple times at The Pyramid Scheme in GR.
A-Hazy and chalky. Not quite as clear as a normal "Huma." A pale yellow that boasts a nice, IPA like, frothy white heady. Nice carbonation.
S-Big hints of oak and booze/bourbon coupled with amazing citrus notes. Very blended grapefruit and bourbon aromas make this one of the best BBA IPA efforts I've had.
T-Incredibly blended so that an IPA fan won't be disappointed. You have all the usual suspects present in unbelievable floral and citrus notes that sit well on the backbone of the oak, tobacco, caramel, and bourbon profile.
M-Thought the mouthfeel was a tad astringent and a bit over-carboonated.
O-Fans of IPAs will like this as it's got quite the hop profile that is sometimes absent in other BBA-IPAs.
