3.78/5  rDev -6.4%
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

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.

On-tap at Ashley's.

Mostly clear, golden-apricot body. Small, wispy, eggshell-white head. Good lacing. Definite bourbon on the nose: oak, vanilla, and leather. A little toffee and fruit malt underneath. Muted citrus and pine hops try to stand out.

Toasted malt flavors up front. Vanilla, oak, and bourbon follow. Smooth. Some fruit mixes in. Piny, herbal hop bitterness settles in and fills up the background. Finish shows some caramel/toffee, more oak/bourbon, and increasing herbal hop bitterness. Medium-bodied with a smooth, creamy feel. Caskish. Very tasty and interesting, but light on the hops.

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.

On tap at the brewers guild fest in Ann Arbor 2010. A bourbon barrel aged Huma-luma-licious.

A bourbon barrel aged IPA is nothing Ive ever had before so I went right for this one.

Smells strongly of bourbon. Its not intense, hot bourbon, it smells like a good scotch. Lots of vanilla, pears, and oak coming from the bourbon. Under the strong, smooth bourbon is some raggedy hops. Bitter and piny smelling.

More oak and vanilla with strong yet smooth bourbon. Hops come around towards the end and wash it all down. This isnt a really bitter beer, nor is it a very boozy/bourbony one. Some how it is very well balanced and it works out great.

This one was a big surprise.
