Had this on-tap at HopCat Detroit's grand opening.

I only had a couple small sips of this one since I didn't personally order it, so my review will be kind of really not good... I will say straight away this is much better than their Pig Pen, which I had several months ago. That's also a bourbon barreled IPA, but it lacks what this one doesn't -- a nice smashing of hops. The barrel adds something different to this beer that it didn't to that one... I can't even pinpoint exactly what it is. While I liked this beer, I'd rather stick with the regular Huma by a slim margin. I think it tastes better, and of course, it's much cheaper. Glad to have tried this rare-ish beer though.

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.
