Let's be honest. There's nothing ipa'ish about this beer. If you are looking for that then you will be very disappointed. If you are looking for in your face bourbon barrel flavor, yeah this is your beer.

Smell- bourbon, oak, vanilla

Taste- bourbon, oak, vanilla (get the hint)

Mouth feel- incredibly smooth and creamy

Summary- if backwoods bastard had an illegitimate love child with a bcbs barrel, this is what would result. I'm digging it (which is a huge compliment as I'm not always the biggest fan of duclaw).

Pours a hazed orange color with a whiteish soapy head. Plenty of lace is left behind., The aroma is fruity and the bourbon barrel aging is noticeable. In the taste, more of the orange and peach flavor, ringing in true vanilla and bourbon oak notes as it warms. Drinks kind of like a smoothie, having the big fruit, citrus and vanilla. Medium bodied, medium carbonated ale. Overall, this was truly interesting, but could probably use some refining. Pretty good work though!
