2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a bottle, this is a fruit beer? Ha ha, very funny for an ipa dressed in syrah. Quite attractive with its ’i wanna bee wine like look." upon first taste impressions, barely can call this a fruit beer, its ipa-ish in nature from start to fin. Must say, it does hide the alky content well and its a little less mouth coating than a triple ipa. Well, now I guess I need to try the DFH 30, heheh. IPA lovers will like this fruit beer, surprised its not rate in the 90th percentile on RB considering its ipa attitude.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
