4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz poured into snifter. Color is a cloudy red with minimal head. Aromas of red wine and fruit. Red wine apparent from the get go. Lose the hops. Hard to believe this is the 60 min ale base. I donít like red wine but am a big fan of this beer. Totally different than I expected. Mouthfeel medium.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle purchased at the Total Wine in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The pour is a clear copper mahogany ruby with a two inch white slightly pinkish head. The aroma is cereal grain, red wine along with some honey sweet floral. The taste is initially quite strong with red wine grape, then turns to sweet and finishes with the grass floral. The palate is medium bodied, dry sweet and a hint of wine like booze in the back. Nice enough, fun use of wine grapes.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A purplish-brown ale with no head. A mildly sweet grape nose with a whole boutique of florals. The body is medium with diverse flavors. The grape must is in the back but leaves a nice linger, a fantastic beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Reddish side of amber, thin sudsy off-white head, slight pinkish hue, little lacing or carbonation.   Faint vinous like hoppy nose, even then the hops are minor.   Very minor white grape aspect up front, hops are minor.   Would make a better Pale Ale as its not all that bitter.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Faint white grape finish, little to no hop bitterness.   Might as well have been a Pale Ale with White Grape juice.   Not bad, but not all that interesting either.   Too light for an IPA.

1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2013 Bottle: amber & copper with some deeper ruby tones hanging about. Lavender colored head foams up nice & big... creamy, chunky, and long-lasting. Aroma is Welchís grape juice with heavy must, like damp wood or mild mildew. Faint leafy essence from the hops. Taste isnít as good as the smell... full of grape juice with a bad, cellar-ish, old funky, weird, musty off-flavor... Not like the "good funk" you find in a gueuze. Pretty gnarly stuff here, like grape juice with mildew & old rain water. Not very good at all.

Overall I probably wouldnt get this again but itís at least interesting to try. Lookswise it is unique. Smells like sour grapes mixed with basement but flavor ainít bad. Bitter finish with sour. flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty pink color and rosé head.
Sour & mildly sweet, enough bitterness to remind us it's still a beer,

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clean amber color with a frothy white head. Hoppy aroma with hint of grapes. Itís bitter as I would expect from an IPA but with a sweetness that balances this beer out very well. Easily drinkable. Soft carbonation and light bodied.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2013-10-10. Crisp dark orange body has a pinkish hue to it with a smallish off white head. 3++ Aroma is pleasantly fruity, grape, musty touches. Flavour is relatively bitter throughout the base, pleasant fruity grape character. Average plus bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Enjoyable but not necessarily enticing me for more.
