3.75/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance - First off, this beer is virtually impossible to pour. Not that this is a bad thing per se, but the yeast is extremely intense. The head is volatile and it takes a number of pours in small stints to get it all into the glass. Small bubbles with and beige white. Unattractive lacing. A deep ruby brown/ orange. Opaque with a little sediment residing at the bottom.
Smell - After letting the head settle down, one can definitely pick up more aroma when not trying to get through a thick layer. A nice, sharp yeast smell with citrus fruits and orange peel. A tiny amount of toffee and wood.
Taste - A slightly sour finish, but tasty. Lemon, grapes, grapefruit, brown sugar and a strong use of Nothern hops. Mild woody falvor, but it is barely noticeable. Having a hard time picking up the used Chardonnay barrels in this. Nicely balanced beer, though. Not sure if there is Citra hops in this. Nice malts, too.
Mouthfeel - Highly carbonated, this beer is intense on the tongue. Aside from the carbonation, the malts, sugars, and bittering creates a decent feel but nothing too amazing, in my opinion.
Overall - Perhaps a little too hoppy for me, I find it doesn't allow for the sugars and malts to shine through enough. But everything is here! Very impressive indeed. Not one of my favorite DIPAs, but I would buy this again for sure.

Bottle from Fonduevoodoo for CanBIF Spring 2014.
A - Pours a deep red, cloudy colour with good carbonation coming up. Three fingers of off white head on top. Good lace spatterings and a film of retention.
S - Super interesting. Grapey, winey, malty, some citrus. Very original. Yeasty as well as woody and some dark fruit. Super cool.
T - Vinous element is definitely there. Not much in the way of DIPA characteristics. Some citrus and serious malt.
M - Good carbonation, medium to full body and a dark fruit/bitter finish.
O/D - This isn't exactly a DIPA. But it's a very curious and creative beer, which i respect. The vinous element really takes hold but plays well with the character of the beer. You also can't detect any alcohol, which is a bonus. All in all, a good experience, and a new way to look at beer.
