Red body topped by a frothy lightly pink head. Aromas of grapes, floral hops & fruit. Vinous flavors transform this IPA & remove hop bite.

This beer is Very dry. Expected it to be sweeter even though Syrah is a dry wine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lemke10 (888) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2014
This pours a semi-clear red amber color with a slight head. The aroma is mild with malts and a touch of hops. The taste is smooth, easy drinking with a decent amount of flavor. The taste is unique with the combination of wine. This finishes with a crisp, bitter finish with a touch of grape. Like everything dogfish head makes, this is delicious.

Pours an amber color with a pink hue. Aroma is of citrus and floral hops with some syrah grape Aroma with some earthiness. Flavor is strong of the citrus and floral hops up front. Some earthiness on the finish with some bitterness.

1FastSTi (3344) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Pours to the color of a blush or rose wine. A starch white head. The aroma is definitely hoppy with a lot of pine and pineapple. Subtle notes of grapes. The flavor is a hoppy one, but the sweetness of the grapes is apparent. Like a wine and a beer had a baby. Bitter, but not too much. Wine is fairly apparent.

Ughsmash (7361) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Bottled. Poured clear, medium amber with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet, kind of dank vinous notes and fruity hoppage over caramel malts and a little molasses.. not as much IPA character as I expected, but solid. The flavor found more of the vinous notes than anything else, and they were tasty.. tangy wine and berry character rolled through the drink.. some fruity bitterness complemented.. finished with berries and bitterness. Medium-bodied and fairly dry on the palate.. I enjoyed the tangy/sour character form the grapes.. overall a good drinker.

BrettTaylor (637) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Poured from bottle from cellar at 54F. Pours a ruby gold with a two finger slightly pink, mostly white, soft head. Aroma is clearly hoppy, mostly citrus, with undertones clearly from grape. The grape is clearly Syrah having that jammy red fruit aroma typical of Syrah/Shiraz, especially those from Australia. This has a very smooth mouthfeel. Tastes a bit winey with some citrus initially, followed by almost muddy grape flavors, then caramelly malt, and bread, leaving a finish of a touch of resin and mineral. I find myself wanting to keep drinking this, but I am not really sure why. I don’t find it particularly tasty, and yet I keep wanting another drink. In the end, I am not sure it is a great blend of wine and beer.

KyotoLefty (7541) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle from BOTW. Pale purple-maroon color, clear, lacy head. Nose of grapes and citrus hops, musty. Interesting fruity flavor, must, some caramel, grass, citrus. Interesting and a bit weird. Ok.
