Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. (Feel - 3.25) Nope. This was just not good. A good attempt at something different though. (Overall - 3.25) 3.36 77 B-

altonbrownd (5516) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 24, 2015
Bottle from Chevy Chase Supermarket. Ruby red body with sligth head. Nose is sweet, malty, honey. Taste is quite malty, and spicy and wheat like. Lots of grapes too. Nice one.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Poured into a perfect pint. 3.25 A: Clear light amber color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average with just a few wisps of lacing left behind. 3.75 S: This is definitely an interesting take on the normal brew. Earthy and citrusy hops. Caramel maltiness. Awesome extra layer of goodness with the grape in there. It works very well. 3.75 T: Grape is the feature of the nose. It leads the way with every sip. Earthy and citrusy hops with caramel malts. 3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Could be a bit creamier, but good enough. 3.5 D: Interesting take on a solidly drinkable brew. ★ 625 characters DavoleBomb, Mar 29, 2014

Bottle - small foamy head, hazy dark copper color, pretty balanced overall with earthy hops, moderate malt, can't really taste any grape flavor to be honest, not bad overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled, poured into glass. A bit of an odd one for me. Not as happy as I expected, or would've liked it to be. I was expecting more of an IPA with a fruit twist but found it more on the fruit beer side of the spectrum. A little sweet and wine-ish with a mild hop finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
