PapaSkeetSkeet (1007) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Deep amber with inch of foamy, frothy, light-pink head. Slow-to-fade. Aroma is lagerish with light notes of berries. Body is watery with thin carbonation. Flavor is also fruity, thin and watery, grassy notes, slightly metallic, but clear otherwise. Boring! (not much grape flavor).

Skinnyviking (8630) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle at home. Medium high pale pink fluffy lasting head. Good looking clear pale ruby body. Mild and relatively weak sweet dusty malt with an acidic note. The flavor is an interesting and hard to describe mix of sweet and bitter and acidic malts with a high carbonation and a long bitter sweet finish. The alcohol level seems just right.

jsnicholas (511) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle (12oz). Kind of Purple colored, kind of wine like. Quite a bit of carbination. An unusual brew that works well. The grape flavors are definitely there.

cathcacr (646) - Oregon, USA - JUN 8, 2014
I have to respect this brewer for all its willingness to experiment with styles and charge the price of merely half a matinee movie ticket to experience a one-bottle glimpse into brewer victory-land. The aroma alone is likely worth the price of admittance, and accurately clues you in as to what’s to follow. Comes off as a bit tart at the end, but such things cannot be helped given all that this delightful brew delivers: Imagine if you will a candied imperial IPA ... this is a good approximation of such a worldly delight. A/A+ = effing delicious

enturbulator (9) - - JUN 7, 2014 does not count
Bottle. Aroma is guava, peat, earthy, and hoppy. Taste is fruity, of course. Cabernet, guava, passion fruit, hops. Excellent and refreshing fruit IPA.

Tide (2796) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle from Hazel’s beverage world. Copper color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, ripe fruits, hops, grapes and resin. Bitter finish with citrus, grapes and resin. Decent brew, but feels really unbalanced.

lownote (492) - Austin, Alabama, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Poured in a tulip glass from tap. Intensely carbonated despite limited head with a purplish red color. The trademark 60min taste but its muted by some of the grape flavors. Its very drinkable and pleasant

Mark_Eck (1766) - - JUN 7, 2014
Pours a reddish purple color. Aroma is grape and some citrus. Taste is sweet with fruit.

Jaysbeers (86) - - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle to glass. The fragrance has a faint sweetness, like wine, if you breathe in deep. Medium carbonation. A bit of a funkiness to the flavor, but it grows on you. That sweetness is hiding in the background at the end, almost like that from a saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. I really couldn’t taste the grapes so I’m disappointed overall. This must be one of Dogfish’s lesser efforts.
