kramer (5213) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Tap. Pours a slighty hazy copper body with a wispy white head. The nose is nose is lightly citrusy hops with a moderate caramel and toasty malt. Moderate citrus hops, some grape like sweetness over the light caramel malt body, a little lingering vinous quality. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Canít say that this was an improvement over the 60 minute. I donít dig the grape notes.

This pours an amber and red color. The aroma is earthy with hops and a hint of grape. The taste is bitter with citrus and a hint of strawberries. The palate is medium. Overall I feel this beer is a combination of bitter and tart and it's probably one you need to be in the mood for. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DYCSoccer17 (3388) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 27, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Nugget in Woodland. The aroma is pretty faint. A little herbal, a little fruity. Light grape. Not much else going on here, though. Transparent ruddy copper body with a small, weak white head that is quickly dissipating. Starts with a weird, acidic, fruity and lightly astringent flavor. Light herbal and floral hop flavor with mild bitterness later on. Highly carbonated, dry, and just kind of weird. Vinous, but not really in a great way.

DedicatedToFun (3326) - Santa Monica, California, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Tap at library ale house, not an ipa, tastes very different, maybe itís because i tasted this after the 120 minute ipa, but this was an interesting spin off.

Amfo (18) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2013
On tap 76/26/2013. A lot of the grape must in the nose. Finish is pretty winey, but with hints of the hop bitterness. It just didnít quite work for me.

Cavie (3891) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Bottle from Spec's. Pours a slightly hazy reddish brown color with a white head. Aroma is definitely hoppy, with some woody notes and a weird fruity element. Almost tart but not quite. Flavor is the same. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Boutip (4956) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2013
Bottle: Poured a light purple color ale with a small foamy head with light retention and almost no lacing. Aroma of bitter hops notes with some grape notes. Taste is also dominated by bitter hops with light citrus notes with some grape juiced and vinous notes also noticeable. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation. Interesting mix between the IPA and the grapes.

Fratto (2700) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle from cwsample. Red brown pour with a white head. Aroma is grape, citrus, and grain. Taste is bitter, weird, bad fruit. I don't know anymore.

cwsample (163) - Texas, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Got the bottle at Spec's. Pours a dark red/blush color with a white head. Smells like an IPA, with a hint of sweet. I don't taste much grape, but the hops come through clear. Not bad.
