COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
F.U.N. Series
Merlot Barrel Aged DIPA. Sexy and smooth with legs for days, Bodacious is sure to arouse curiosity. After aging in barrels for several months, the hop aroma recedes slightly, giving way to a rich, velvety malt backbone combined with oak flavors from the barrel. Finally, upon swallowing, a delicate, lingering bitterness remains on the tongue. So enjoy this limited release in a group or in private...

bomber. The only think I didnít like about this product was the hefty sticker price. Ouch! Pours a dark amber w/ a reddish tint. Nose is vinous and oak. Taste is of red wine, citrus and some sweet malt. A different combination, but very tasty! Mouhthfeel is smooth and bitter, but not the powerful bite of some other IIPAs. Typically, I donít care for oak-aged IPAs, but i do like this one, probably because of the wine barrel flavor working so well with this IIPAs base beer. Good brew, but the price is too high, IMO.

Tasting at Bruceís pad. Thanks to Colin. Hazy amber beer, small pale cream coloured head. Palate is crisp and light. Food fine carbonation. Light malt. Whisper of vanilla. Light marmalade. Little hop and wood bitterness. Light red wine tang. Light bitter finish. Nice combo of marmalade and red wine. Tasty beer but really wants some dry hopping to bring the dipa character back. Hides the abv well.

Bottle split at Bruceís Pad, from an IP trade with a real life Texan, as FUN 010, 24/06/14. Lightly hazed orange amber with a a moderate light beige covering that retains well. Nose us juicy fruits, caramel malts, light tropicana, dark red berry fruits, BA woody tones. Taste comprises mango, grapefruit, tangy apricot, light booze, red wine rinse, Ribena berries, light pine needle - emphasis on íneedleí. Medium + body, fine carbonation, fairly mellow hop bitterness in the close. Decent enough offering. More of a DIPA than #9 in this series but still lacks some hop venom, again could benefit from dry hopping. I iliked this one though.

Medium sweet flavor with some booze, berries, orange, bread, a bit of piney bitterness. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming to finish, some piney bitterness, ripe orange, pale wood. So so.

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.

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.

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2014
On tap at the Yard House, Houston. A lightly hazy, light amber colored beer with a small light beige head. Itís 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. Itís a bit too sweet and alcoholic in the mouth I think, but thereís actually enough bitterness to deal with it. The alcohol and wine shines through, as is the fruity, citrusy hops. Itís 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 Prazackís. 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.
