On Tap at Founders Brewery - Grand Rapids, MI

A - Bronze, with clarity. Not much head or lacing

S - Its barrel aged, so strong whiskey aroma. Light malts.

T - a pale ale with a whiskey kick. Awesome.

M - medium bodied, medium carbonation

O - a great brew. Tough to drink more than 1. But awesome for 1!

Pours amber/copper in color and noticeable alcohol legs.

Strong caramel sweetness, earthy hops, and a definite sweet hint of bourbon.

Warming and sweet bourbon, caramel/toffee like malts, and earthy hop bitterness.

Medium-bodied, low carbonation, sweet, a little hot, warming.

Overall, as a person that wouldn't really call themselves a fan of bourbon barrel aged pale ales/IPAs this was definitely worth trying.
