Poured a nice ruby red the taste was interesting no grape sweetness was like a 60 minute though without that tasty aftertaste.

Drinkable, but pretty meh. Grape flavor comes through, but kind of overwhelms the hops. It’s clean on the palate, and the fruit might even make it refreshing on a hot day. But in the end it tastes like someone splashed some grape juice into your IPA, and the result is not something greater than the sum of its parts.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light copper appearance with an average size, off white head and decent lacing. The grape must is immediately apparent in the aroma with some spicy hops in the background. Tart, earthy flavor with a good hop bite and a bit of sweetness in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel with a lingering finish. Interesting take on a style brewed by everyone, everywhere.

On tap at DFH Fairfax. Clear copper with purplish thin head. Definitely get the grapes on the nose with some malt and earthy hop character. Some sour grape skin flavor with the typical 60 minute malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Soft carbonation, medium bodied, dry finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a hazy dark amber with a broken off white head and some lace. The aroma is weak malt and hop. The flavour is weak bitter with a hoppy liquorice bitter metallic palate. I can’t say I found this too enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle a post GABF tasting, courtesy of Kermis. Pours a clear amber beer with a big, fluffy white head on top. Aroma of grapes, citric hops and some vineous characters. Flavour is ok, medium bitter with a slight sour, white wine influences. Quite an interesting brew, many characters to discover here. Nice one.

Bottle shared from the brewpub. Pours a rick amber with a thick off white head. Aroma of plastercine, grapes, some wood, caramel. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter, with a not so great vinous quality fading into a toffee finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Not so great.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured darker than expected, a deep copper color. Lots of hops and citrus in the aroma. The flavor is smooth at first, with grapefruit and light hops slipping in. Smoother than most IPA’s I’ve had. Kind of neat and interesting.
