Reviewed on 6/29/2010. On tap at Shorts. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Aroma of bourbon and faint grainy malt. Flavor of bourbon with sweet malt and sweet citrus. I didn't much care for it, but I've never been much of barrel-aged IPA fan.

Serving type: on-tap

Had this at Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Fest

Pours a creamy white head. Color is a bronze hued gold.

Aroma: Bourbon, oak, vanilla, caramel malt, floral hops and grapefruit.

Taste: Big and malty. Bready malts with oak and light bourbon comes through. Vanilla, floral hops, and citrus at the end.

Mouthfeel: Bitter, dry, and creamy. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends stick with a hop resin feel to it.

Overall, this one wasn't for me. Another ba ipa that I just didn't like because too much malt showed. IPAs need to be fresher than this.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

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.

Serving type: growler

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 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.
