Bottle. Pours clear amber with a rocky light pink head that lingers and leaves great lace. Aroma is hay, body is thin, taste is lightly bitter, average carbonation, with a lightly sour, lightly bitter, faintly grape tartness in the finish. Had to look-up what grape must is. Interesting beer, okay.

Pours light orange with a really glaring ruby tint. Sort of musky odor with a little bit of grape in the nose. Almost a sharp tartness at the beginning with some cherry notes melding into some mild lemon zest and finally ends with a sort of dry bitterness. It’s a little different, but not that unusual for a dogfish head.

Alpha10 (425) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2013
2013/11/26 - Pours a rosy, pink amber colour with a soapy, light pink head that lingers. Aroma is mainly grape with a funk and some floral hops. Taste is a similar to nose with lots of grape, a little funk and floral hops. Mouthfeel and carbonation are medium with a dry tannin aftertaste. An interesting beer, but the hops bitterness seems to take a backseat to the grape must notes. Still, quite refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark plum look. odd funky smell. Funky taste too; even on tongue. Competing flavors, effervescent through nose. odd.

Slipstream (2227) - USA - NOV 23, 2013
An IPA brewed with grape must. Rosy hue and very nice floral-grape aroma. The taste is close to an APA with a dash of floral grape. Interesting stuff that is fairly typical of DFH.

Bottled 26FEB13 Pours a nicely pink hued copper with a slim sheet of light pink foam. Smells juicy out the gate with grapes, and I have to admit that the grapes carry that dirty, inky depth of Syrah grapes. Also some bits of resin, but mostly dominated by the grape character. Standard sweet english malt dominance in the DFH beers, some bitterness, a bit of blueberry and musty earth. Medium bodied with light carb and a semi dry finish. Interesting beer, I’m really left unmoved, but wouldn’t shy somebody away from the beer.

A: Reddish/Mild Brown Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head Ring, Decent Lacing S: Musty Grape, Bready, Mildly Piney T: Bready Malts, Musty Grape, Mildly Bitter M: Great Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Filling Overall, its alright, just seems like the hop profile gets a little lost behind the musty grapes.

[Bottle (12oz).] Pours a hazy orange-copper with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma of bready malt, hops, grapes and vinous notes. Flavour of bready malt, fruit (grapes and more), hops -- too much grape and not enough hop for an IPA. Moderate semi-long bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good, it didn’t blow me away but I liked it alright.
