This is a little odd, but still good. The grape must is different, adds some interesting flavor to the yeast. Pours maroon with decent head. Finishes bitter but not as bitter as the 60-minute. Tap at Rehoboth brewpub.

jc1762 (475) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 13, 2015
Into a taster showing cranberry juice red. The nose shows a lot of random sweet wine (this could be red or white). The palate is full bodied and well carbonated rounded with a red wine bitterness at the end more so than an IPA bitterness. Wine fruit flavors show throughout with a lightly tannic texture. A strange combo but still approachable.

Sweet grape aroma. It is somewhere in between an IPA and a fruit beer. Certainly hoppy, but also fruity while not very malty.

355ml bottle. Pours orange with a small head. Aroma of malts, fruits and hints of berries. Taste is sweetish, fruity and malty with hints if caramel and berries. Finish is sweetish and caramely. Decent.

355 ml bottle @ hotel room, San Diego.
Pours clear copper color with a small head. Fruity aroma, some herbal tones, mild hops and malts. Fruity flavor, apple notes, grassy. No hops, what’s the deal?

lusikka (7624) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2015
355 ml bottle. Enjoyed at San Diego, CA. Pours a hazy golden amber colour with a small head. Aroma of sweet fruitiness, white grapes and some floral notes. Flavour of biscuit, white grapes, mild grassy bitterness, mild spiciness and a bit of toffee. Medium bodied. Sweet and disappointing. Where are the hops?

laiti (7789) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2015
35.5 cl bottle @ hotel room, San Diego. Aroma is fruity with passionfruit, peach and toffee. Flavour has peaches, some cereal and minerals. Easy-going but nothing special. And where are the hops?

ScipioA (405) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Beautiful dark red with a small slightly off-white head. Aroma is generic IPA, maybe a little stronger on the fruit side of things. Taste is a little better, it’s a solid IPA base with juicy grape sweetness and flavors. Mouthfeel is smooth and soft. There’s a great tannic dryness in the mouthfeel that you don’t often find in beer. This is a lot of fun, like most DFH beers but I wonder if having a solid IPA and a solid glass of red wine wouldn’t be better.

60minuteman (1145) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Wheaty aroma of grapes and cherries, grass and wheat and floral. Flavor is roughly the same, malts, metal. Sticky palate, oak, logs, more malt, some hops. Bland.

mvp (214) - Harper Woods, Michigan, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Citrus IPA aroma with a hint of spice. Pleasant but not very strong. Copper color with a white frothy head that lasts. Grape flavor like it suggests on the bottle. A little strong but seems to balance with the hops. Soft texture. Something worth trying but not to get excited about..
