4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2014 The aroma is dank and musty…in a good way. A fruity note is also present. Pours a surprising wine-pink with a white ring and minimal lacing. The taste is vinous, biscuit, with suggestions of citrus and a slow long lasting hoppy finish. Medium body with crisp dry carbonation. Dry mouthfeel. Overall, I liked this beer. The taste and appearance were both unexpected yet very rewarding. Would drink again.

12 oz bottle. (Beverage World) Fort Oglethorpe, GA.
Clear dark red colour with a small white head.
Sweet hops, yeast and sweet caramel malt in the aroma.
Sweet fruitiness (maybe grapes) and some malt in the flavour.
Not very good. But not tasteless. A disappointment.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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. Can’t say that this was an improvement over the 60 minute. I don’t dig the grape notes.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Tap at library ale house, not an ipa, tastes very different, maybe it’s because i tasted this after the 120 minute ipa, but this was an interesting spin off.

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 didn’t quite work for me.
