Naka (714) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Pinkish amber with a foamy white head. Caramel malty aroma with a touch of floral hops and wine. Flavor is a dry fruity malt with a nice, yet indistinct bitter finish. Light and very drinkable.

Rated on 3-05-2015 (Bottle) This beerís appearance is a medium sized off-white head that mostly diminishes, transparent amber body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is citrus, floral hops, musty, fruity, lightly earthy, and grape. The flavor is very sweet, floral, citrus hops, fruity, some malt, and some grape. This beerís mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and it is light bodied. Overall, this is not one of my favorite Dogfish Head beers by any means. The flavor is not my thing at all.

thedm (5028) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAR 5, 2015
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent light brown orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was mild fruit and mild spice. The mild citrus mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mediumly tingly finish with a mellow fruity aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of mild citrus mild spice mild hops and fruity. A decent one but not one that I would consider drinking again.

Reddish pour with little head. Some citrus and vino in the nose. Mild bitterness, with wine notes in the front. Not very notable finish - could be a little crisper/cleaner. Itís okay.

japi (125) - Neubrandenburg, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2015
A copper colored beer with an off-white head. The aroma is grapy, fruity, a little bit toasty and nutty. Lively carbonation, medium body. The taste is rather malty with a long bitterness at the end.

Pours a hazy orange red with a very minimal white head. Aroma of earth and malt. Flavor of grape, malt, and citrus hops

ADfan (648) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 17, 2015
From the tap it has a amber like color with a nice head. The smell of pine, citrus and lemon zest come from the glass. The taste has a refreshing zing up front. I notice grapefruit, lemons, pine and straw. Slight bitterness on the finish. Great finish.

degbert (1301) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours a rather jarring purple-pink with a high, fluffy, pinkish-white head. Nose is -- OK, I used to work in a winery. And after a while, thereís a smell to a wineryís stone floors; spilled wine, yeast, wet stone, an odd cheese element, a little mold, it just sinks into everything and doesnít go away. Itís not a bad smell, but itís very typical. This beer smells like that, with just a faint hint of eau de upchuck. Some hops bitterness up front, along with dirt, red wine, and a more aggressive bitterness on the close. No sweetness at all; no detectable malt. Way out of balance; this is too wack to handle. Finish is spit bucket nasty. No.

AdamJackson (3370) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Pours a weird dark purple / reddish color. Nose is very fruity. a little fruit, grape, very little bitterness. Almost no bitterness at all. has a leather like quality. some grape jam but seriously just not great.

willisread (527) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 13, 2015
12oz bottle from Jís Liquors in Owensboro, KY. Poured into a stemmed tulip. Plum red color with a modest rose-pink head that dissipated fairly quickly. Nice carbonation. Nose smells of blueberry, grape, lime. Grape is well-balanced with hops to give a nice flavor. Very refreshing as an after dinner beer. Mouthfeel was very springy like a nice rose wine. Really enjoyed this.
