3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle via cloaker. Thanks! Pours a deep amber with a large white head. Aromas of oak, perhaps a touch of wine and a lot of barrel. Slightly sticky, semi sweet, semi bitter, small amount of twang. Flavors of oak, wine, sweet malt, a touch of stale hops. Finishes boozy and full with a marshmallow aftertaste. Not great, not terrible.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Pinthouse Pizza. Red-amber pour with a white head. The aroma has some strong red wine and orange citrus notes. The flavor is big and bold with a lot of red wine and tannic oak character. There is also some orange and pine in the flavor from the hops, but the barrel character overpowers the base IPA. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Yard House, Houston. A lightly hazy, light amber colored beer with a small light beige head. It’s pretty sweet on the nose, fruity and alcoholic with a touch of oak less the vanilla. Some peach and pine cone hints. Some vinous hints too. It’s a bit too sweet and alcoholic in the mouth I think, but there’s actually enough bitterness to deal with it. The alcohol and wine shines through, as is the fruity, citrusy hops. It’s sure full bodied, with a nice carbonation level, and a bit too much alcohol warmth. Lasting warming and fruity finish with a vinous touch. A nice one, but too sweet and alcoholic I think. 140514

010 Bodacious: Double IPA aged in red wine barrels. Dark, hazy reddish amber with a bubbly beige head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, tropical fruit, alcohol, and wine barrel. The taste is sweet and fruity, woody, and moderately bitter. Plus there is definitely a solid element of boozy wine in there. Medium-full bodied with soft bubbles.

Had this at a bottle share at my boy Prazack’s. Poured into sniffer. Color is red with a light head. Wine is present in aroma and taste. Sweet taste but the bitterness comes through after. Unique beer, hard to compare.

Pours a reddish copper with an off white head. Opens up nicely with flavors of red wine and oak followed with a smooth piney aftertaste. A unique and delicious beer.

Deep copper with a haze and a foamy, dirty white head. The aroma is fruity amd hoppy. The flavor is caramel malt with a richly sweet, hoppy accent. This beers malt holds its own. It has a latent birn on the palate but not the gullet. An interesting amd different rendition of America’s new DIPA style.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Got this via a trade with icetrauma, thanks man. 22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly hazy red orange color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, citrus rind, pineapple, orange, floral, light red wine, grass, caramel, light oak, light toast, and herbal earthiness. Very nice and unique aromas with nice balance and complexity. Taste of grapefruit, orange, pineapple, caramel, citrus zest, toast, light pine, floral, grass, light red wine, light oak, and light piney spiciness. Good amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pineapple, caramel, toast, light red wine, light pine, grass, floral, and light piney spiciness on the finish. Damn nice complexity and balance of flavors; with a fantastic malt/bitterness balance; and zero cloying flavors present on the finish. The wine barrel presence was much more subtle than expected, but it was really a great thing. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a creamy, slick, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent barrel aged DIPA! Nice flavor balance and complexity with the wine barrel aging; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
