Swamp Head's 10-10-10 is one of my favorites of their beers. Naturally I looked forward to trying this. It was good, though in my opinion the bourbon notes in the nose were a little overpowering. It was quite boozy. I felt that the hop character was a little lost in the mix, when compared to the not bourbon aged 10-10-10. I did enjoy this.

Had on tap at The Craft Bar in Panama City Beach. Have had some bourbon barrel aged IPA's in the past but none compare to this one. While the bourbon is there it is a compliment to the hops and crisp backbone of the base beer and does not overpower or muddle the flavors of the IPA. It does what you might expect but is balanced and that is something sorely lacking in most examples of this style. The regular 10-10-10 is a good double IPA bu this is in a different league. Excellent, interesting brew.

This version was aged in Pappy Van Winkle barrels.

As a big bourbon fan and a moderate IPA fan, this may be the best IPA I've ever had! The Pappy barrels really take the edge off the bitterness and make me want to go drink a glass of Pappy as soon as I finish this. I feel compelled to compare this to white oak aged Jai Alai, and I dare say this is better. Definitely more oak, more vanilla, and more bourbon than the Jai Alai. I'm blown away; probably the best Swamp Head brew I've tasted.
