2013 vintage. Served on tap.

Pours a bright orange with a tint of amber. No head and some lacing. Nose starts with some grassy hops followed by some earthiness. This gives way to a strong bourbon note which clashes a little bit with the hops. Taste is spicy with hops and bourbon. The bourbon brings vanilla, and char to the flavor. Mouthfeel is light in terms of carbonation, heavy in terms of body. This reminds me of a barrel aged ipa... The earthy hops and the barrel do not come together harmoniously for me.
