Has a nice copper coloration, like amber. A nice one finger head that isn't present very long, just long enough to let you know its there. Very aromatic from the whiskey barrels and hops. The whiskey is very evident in this, and ends with a nice hoppy bitterness. It was much fuller bodied than any whiskey you'll have, but had the flavor, but, obviously, not as boozy.

This was really a nice execution of a whiskey barrel aged IPA, and definitely worth checking out if you like barrel aged IPAs, or can appreciate whiskey.
