Meh. Not fruity or tart though it is bubbly and effervescent. Not much hop smell or flavor. Somewhat bland. Light tasting. Easy to drink I guess.

Nose on this one was mostly citrus. Couldn’t detect any distinct hop character but that may have been masked by the heavy citrus smell. Taste on this was citrus mostly with a subtle grape finish. Couldn’t really pick up any of the hops in the taste. Overall I enjoyed this beer and can appreciate the story behind it. However, this beer does not taste in any way like an IPA. I would drink this beer again but then again $10 for 4 of them seems a bit steep. Cheers!

Bottle. Pours purplish and hazy with fizzy head. Sweetness from grapes is first apparent and then leaves a slightly sour finish. Not enough bitterness for my taste as the grape flavor overwhelms.

This disappointed me. Maybe too unique. Poured from bottle at Rugans. Dark Amber color. White head. Crazy fruit taste. Sour. Dry. Just not what I expected and not sure why it is called an IPA

A hoppy tart grape aroma comes from this red almost girly drink dark pink colored beer with a small white head. You feel the carbonation on the tounge then get a tartness a wine aftertaste. Very crisp and a pretty light bodied beer. Its like a carbonated wine! GOod brew. Not a real IPA taste though.

Poured purplish with pink fizzy head. Solid retention with some good lacing. Good citrusy and grape aroma. Taste like a dry chardonnay wine but with a hoppy bitterness. Very interesting. Well done Sam and the crew at DFH for this intrigueing brew. Very different.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
copper, medium white head with a slight purple tint and okay retention. good lacing. caramel, floral, citrus, vinous, slight vegetal, slight tannin. sort of tastes like it was spiked with some plain grape juice. medium sweet, medium-light bitter, very light sour. medium-light body, slick feel, fizzy carb. comes off a bit heavy on the carbonation and i’m not so sure that 60 minute ipa was improved at all by the addition of the grape must. on the one hand, it’s interesting, but on the other, it’s not something i’m dying to seek out again.

Bottle from Jesterdeal, thanks man! Pours is a dark, purply gold with white head. Aroma is grapes, sweet and slightly hoppy. Taste is ipa mixed with grape soda, finishes incredibly dry.
