Received this bottle as an extra in a trade with JSBILK. Thanks, Justin! Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a tulip glass.

A - Pours a dirty amber, with a significant amount of haze. Maybe one finger of off-white head that dissipated quickly.

S - Prominent bourbon present with a big vanilla as well. A bit of piny hops to add to things.

T - A big bourbon taste, but without the alcohol bite. Lots of vanilla and piny hop bitterness.

M - Thinner bodied, with lower carbonation. A bit of sticky residue is left over.

O - A very interesting convergence of style. I've had oak-aged IPAs before, but never bourbon barrel-aged IPAs. Quite drinkable for the big flavor bomb. Thanks again, Justin!
