From notes at Crunchy’s

Leftovers from the “Short’s Night”

A & S: candy sweetness is very strong but not complex. Mostly clear light copper colored beer. Decent lacing.

T & M: Smokey and sweetened malt. Hints of bourbon and woody tones are prevenlent but more background. Moderately bittering in the finish, semi dry. Medium bodied, sharp carbonation

O: Thought it was an interesting idea (the reason I tried it) but I didn’t think that it was better then the original. And so the saying goes “if it aint broke, don’t fix it”

Had this a couple different times and I'm a fan. It starts like a fresh IPA and segues nicely into a smooth, soft aged beer; interesting. So many barreled beers have that unmistakable mellowed character from sitting in a cellar for however long, but this is a classic mullet. Crisp up front, long and smooth in the back, dipped in bourbon. The vanilla and oak at the tail end of the drink leave a nice aftertaste, making drinking a breeze. Can't hate on the price either, I think it was $4.50 or something for a tulip at Hopcat when they had it.

A: The pour is a bright copper/amber color with a bit of white head on top.

S: The nose is much more IPA forward than I was expecting. Good piney hops along with some hints of citrus. Not really all that much bourbon, perhaps just some oak and vanilla notes.

T: Again, the bourbon really isn't noticeable here. I pick up a slight bit of oak and tannins, but not that usual booze and sweet vanilla. Still a fair amount of pine to it, maybe a touch of sweetness at points. A hint of diacetyl on a couple sips, too.

M: The body is medium with a pretty good level of carbonation that pricks the tongue.

D: Overall, not bad, but I still prefer IPAs to be as fresh and free from -bals as possible.
