http://www.alltech.com/news/news-articles/2015/02/18/kentucky-rye-barrel-ipa-seasonal-and-limited-edition-single-barrel [LEXINGTON, Ky.] – While snow, ice or blistery cold is blanketing much of the country, images of warmer days may be conjured up now thanks to a new spring seasonal brew that pours into the market this week. Hoppy, spicy and crisp, Kentucky Rye Barrel IPA is a new, limited edition seasonal beer from Alltech Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co. that is aged for six weeks in Town Branch® Rye whiskey barrels, as well as Kentucky bourbon barrels. The unique rye India pale ale is brewed with rye grain and dry-hopped in the barrel and boasts a citrusy character in the nose and finish, as well as soft notes of vanilla and woody ribbons of oak and rye from the barrel. Alltech Lexington Brewing and Distilling Company’s barrel-aged seasonal program allows the brewery to step outside of its year-round offerings to experiment with new tastes, furthering its reputation as barrel-aging experts.

    I have enjoyed all of their bourbon barrels so far. This one you really taste the bourbon, which actually sort of takes over the IPA characteristics. Not much bitter or IBU here, or if so, overshadowed by the sweetness of the bourbon/rye. Has a lighter, clear amber appearance. Smooth and refreshing feel....as the 10% alcohol bite is hidden quite well. A solid imperial IPA, though I wish there was some more IPA in there.

    I had this one on 3/27/15 A bright amber colored beer with a big frothy textured light beige head rising above. There's good hang time on that head. A thick ringed film and ringlet at the body level are left. A light scent of earthy bourbon. That bourbon is more pronounced in the tasting but never overpowering. Full bodied and smooth.
