4.21/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

From a 330 ml brown bottle. Pours out deep cloudy amber hue, massive loose spongy light beige head that forced me half a dozen attempts in order to empty the bottle into the glass.

Earthy notes on the nose, along with some woody and vinous character, all of which are eventually parted by a hoppy grapefruit element. Brown sugar and some caramelized malt develop as it warms.

Flavour is rather intense and for the most part comes as one long cohesive rush from sip to swallow, no particular character seems to stand out beyond another. Still, let's try to pick it apart.... Toasty, grainy malt up front with some caramel highlights, with earthy, woody notes quick to follow in the middle, accompanied by a dry vinous character and even a hint of Bretts, finishing with earthy, spicy, grapefruit pith hops. That's the slo-mo rendition, since the actual delivery to my palate gives the impression of being quite seamless.

Lighter end of medium-bodied mouthfeel, texture is effervescent from the carbonation.

Finally a barrel-aged IPA that works, and one aged in Chardonnay barrels of all things. To be honest this whole experience leaves me with the impression of sampling a well put-together Saison, with the woody earthiness subbing in for peppery phenols. This is definitely one to experience, I'll be seeking out more 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.
