Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
White Out pours a dark chestnut brown. The khaki head leaves a small soapy lace ring which remains around the top of the beer. The spectacular aroma of buttery caramel malt and bourbon hit you first, followed by a subtle citrus fruit. Smooth bourbon oak and vanilla blend well with the sweet caramel malts. White Out goes down smooth with a slow, lingering bitterness.

16 oz bottle poured into a Hinterland snifter.

A - Deep clear mahogany in color, this dark double IPA is probably dark to begin with but picks up color from it's time in the barrel. The ivory cap of foam leaves dots of lace on the glass before disintegrating into a halo of loose bubbles.

S - Soft notes of vanilla underscore the warm bourbon nose and trail of charred oak but the barrel is immediately cut by hops. A combination of earthy and light citrus cones make their way forward with a sweet caramel malt backer that comes full circle back to warming bourbon as it warms up.

T - Smooth charred bourbon oak and vanilla blend well with sweet caramel malts but are cut short by strikingly pungent hops that bring freshly cut lawn, pine sap, and notes of tropical fruit on the finish.

M - This Medium-full bodied double IPA has a smooth entry but, like the nose and flavor before it, is cut short by gripping hop bitterness that finishes moderately dry.

O - The notion of a bourbon barrel-aged double IPA is a strange one to begin with. For starters, barrel-aged beer needs to sit and age to absorb the characteristics of the wood but, hoppy beer is always best consumed fresh, which puts the combination of the two in a quandary. Hinterland's White Out manages to make sense of the mix with a forward barrel-aged characteristic that compliments the beer's caramelly malt base but also contrasts the hoppy qualities.

Poured from a bottle into a Great Divide tulip that I got at Haskell’s for like $3 or something.
A: Fairly clear but yeastier at the end of the pour. Red to orange with light carbonation. Thin head with slightly yellow tinge and brief lacing.
S: Bourbon dominates with faint notes of fruit, earth, and tobacco. Not much of a discernible hop bouquet.
T: clean, bitter, almost tart, light bourbon, a little sweet, some fruit. Resinous mouthfeel. Malts have definite barleywine character. Hops are earthy and spicy, not floral.
O: I can’t figure out when this was bottled so I'm not sure if it's a recent release. Feels more like a hopped barleywine than anything else, but wouldn’t that be the same as an aged IIPA?
Impartial judgment: My cat smelled it, lingered momentarily, but was indifferent.

Stopped in the brew pub tonight on a reccomendation from my #1 beer ninja BeerFMAndy. A couple epic pork tacos and an outstanding beer later I'm glad I listened.

Served in an oversized snifter the beer is dark chestnut brown with about a finger of khaki head. A small soapie lace ring remains around the top of the beer.

The aroma is spectacular. Buttery caramel malt and bourbon greet you at first. Wood and sweet tarts mix with cut grass a hint of almonds and citrus hops in the finish. I spent a solid five minutes smelling this one. The people at the bar were starting to talk at this point.

The flavor is a touch less powerful than the nose but still great. Bourbon and loads of caramel malt. Earthy grass and citrus are picked up as well. Wet straw and just a hint of heat linger in the finish.

Medium to full creamy body. Semi dry finish. Light carbonation.

Overall a superb barrel aged DIPA. As drinkable as a barrel aged DIPA can get. Damn glad I got a chance to enjoy this one. Since once it's gone it won't be back for a year. Thanks so much to Andy for giving me the heads up.
