Notes / Commercial Description:
Previously known as Hand of Doom.

Doom may be impending but that doesn't mean you have to fear it. A collision of worlds, the intense hop character of our Imperial IPA mingles with the warm vanilla and oak notes imparted from the time spent in our favorite bourbon barrels. Like all good things, Doom comes to those who wait.

Pours a lightly hazy orange-ish color with an off white head. In the aroma, vanilla, bourbon, and orange citrus. In the taste, oaky, big bourbon, and some mellow orange citrus hops. A smooth and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry woodiness, with notes of citrus and bourbon. Big bourbon, more in the nose than taste, and really nice!

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a small snifter. Frothy, white head, good retention with soapy lacing on a light copper body. Aroma includes tropical fruit flavors and some bourbon heat, the idea of whisky infused grapefruit comes to mind. Taste follows suit and has an interesting hot whisky-like finish with some maple and vanilla notes in the background. Very drinkable for a high abv, very complex and tasty.
