EithCubes (5194) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Bottled 01/06/14. Nose is hoppy, very rindy, and has good bitterness coming across, lightly dusty with grape, very appealing!. Pours extremely pale amber, approaching a purple/clear cider-like paling at the bottom, but closer to ruby up top, with a dense and soapy pink-tinged off-white head. Full body with avg carbonation, a little slick, relatively low bitterness for an IPA, mostly felt at the finish where it mixes with the weird tang of grape skin; it’s a pleasing wave of strong tannins unlike those derived from overtaxed grains. Light spicy character, citric hops trying to lie somewhat low. Semi-dry at best but with interesting little eddies of unusual flavor combinations, but I could see a lot of palates refusing to take the sweetness/tanginess/grapiness accumulated over a full serving. This is an extremely weird experience to find in a beer bottle, but I can’t deny the appeal -- very much like how Kalte Muschi or Calimocho elevates cola above the ordinary, and the mixture is really something greater than the sum.

Still needs moar hops.

DocJitsu (1156) - Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Pours a clear golden-copper color with a short light tan head. Lacing drags the insides of the glass as the head dissipates. Toasty malts and herbal and citrusy hops on the nose. Neither aroma dominates the other and seems to blend seamlessly. Thinner texture with a burning scrub starting midway. Juicy apricot and citrus up front. Finishes with a peculiar infected homebrew sourness. If not for that, this would be a lot of fun.

12oz bottle at home - I’ve been excited to try this for a few months now. 61Min pours a pretty pink with a creamy off white head, looks really nice. faint grains and grape must for aroma. the flavor and body (palate) of this beer and where it completely loses me. the flavors just kind of wash over as bitter wine cooler. 60 minute is nowhere to be found, a weird and unsatisfying beer for me.

PigMine (42) - San Angelo, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2014
My 3rd 12oz. bottle ever. A loyal Dogfish 60 and 90 minute fan. This does not retain 60 minute greatness. It is grape juice with some bread aroma and a touch of decent malts. The hops are destroyed by the grape tannin and the pink pour scared me. Being a Dogfish lover I risked a try! It is sweet, and reminds me of the old wine cooler taste. I bet non-IPA lovers will like it, as it is fruity with some peach and pine mixed back in the distance. It retains a small head, and leaves a decent lacing on the glass. I’d attribute that lacing to the sugar rather than the beloved hops and alcohol. It goes down easily. It doesnt change much on the palate from the nose. Grape grape grape. It would be an acceptable one-off, but for Dogfish to make it a year round staple available everywhere is not cool. It is a far cry from a Stone IPA.

Salmoniform (1193) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Dark orange hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is funk, grape skins, cave must, citrus hops, caramel. Mouthfeel is nice with medium light body and high carbonation. Taste is dry with a bitter following and tannic finish. Overall this is a funky brew with definite horse blanket essence. Not great but different.

cduncan14 (138) - Sandy Springs, Georgia, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Has some grassy hop aromas, as well as some farmhouse funk and "the inside of a winery", according to my wife. It’s a gorgeous ruby color with plummy tints and a white head. The taste is very peculiar and not particularly tasty. It has a sort of sherry taste, akin to old wine or wine added to weak beer. It definitely doesn’t taste anything at all like 60-minute IPA and not particularly like syrah. Credit to Dogfish Head for being willing to experiment, but this one fell a bit flat.

Clear amber color and good head with a sweet hop aroma and a very slight bitter finish. A reasonably interesting beer that isn’t too happy or bitter.

Minderbinder (2339) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle 12oz. Pours clear red with low off-white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of grapes, malt. Taste is of grapes, bitterness, tannins, fruit juice. Palate: Medium body. Astringent. Low-medium carbonation. Overall: Decent. A bit too much grape juice in there. Malt and other features are pretty subdued. Not outstanding.

delnoche (465) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - FEB 9, 2014
12fl oz bottle poured into a shaker. Reddish-purple with a large white head. Aroma is strong hops and some grapes. Flavor is exactly the same. Sticky palate, high carbonation. Short to medium hoppy finish. Another yummy offering from DFH.

On tap at Taco Mac. Floral, fruity hop aroma. Mildly bitter, some of the Syrah coming through. Medium light body, soft carbonation. Interesting IPA derivation.
