blklab2007 (2118) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle poured a light red amber color with a ring of off white head on the glass. Aroma has surprising bright hops, sweet malt, citrus, grape skins, and some fruity sweetness. Mouth feel is medium light and the carbonation medium low. Flavor has interesting sweetness, some countering bitterness, grape skins, dark pit fruit, and some berry. The grape flavor is unique and it does have some funky dust.

hopmelt (197) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Pours deep amber, faint pink half finger thin head, nice lacing. Aroma, bready, caramel malt, un-ripe grapes, no hop presence. Taste grapes up front, then bready, caramel malt, not overly sweet, but still no hop presence. Mouth feel is medium body, high carbonation, sweet finish. Overall, interesting, not bad, but not real good, it?s like an amber ale with a bit of grape juice.

lamas (1549) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle. Bottled on: 05/10/13. A clear ruby pour with a thick off-white head. The subtle nose features some crisp caramel maltiness, grapes, hints of cherries, and a splash of lemon juice. Thin to medium-bodied and crisp on the way down. The taste starts with some grapes, light plum flavors, berries, and wine. A touch of caramel and some cereal graininess here and there. Bitter lemons and grapefruit juice at the end. The quality is there, but itís not exactly my cup of tea (like most other Dogfish beers, it seems).

RickTStiles (826) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Pours deep, dark red. Lasting head and some lacing. Aroma has notes of cherry and grape with a moderate hop presence. Taste is bitter sweet with notes of wine, grapefruit, and peaches. Finish is mildly alcoholic.

Tap. Pours dark amber with thick, creamy off-white head. Aroma is floral and pine hops, biscuit malts, light grapes, and light figs. Flavor is balanced toasted malts, hop bitterness, and berry fruit esters; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

I appreciate dogfish trying to do something different than just another regular ipa, just wish their beers werenít so pricey. Purple color is interesting, definitely good grape presense, more so than other beers breweed with fruit. I think it could make a goo session ale.

ross (2141) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle. Pink? Colored pour with a white head. Smells like an IPA with some grapes in it. Taste is pretty close to the way it smells. It was alright, perhaps a bit too much grape in it for me.. A novelty as most of their beers are. I just read 61 minute and immediately thought it was a variation of 60. Little did I know... pretty much the reason I quit buying Dogfish beers other than 60 and WWS is summed up with this beer.

I really enjoyed this one. Appearance was light pink. Aroma was of hops and grape. Flavor was typical IPA, hop forward and aggressive, with a nice dose of grape thrown in there. Very enjoyable.

The aroma is fruit, flowers. The appearance is pink/amber, white head. The flavor is flowers, grapes. Medium in body. The finish is floral hops, some grape must. Enjoyable, not exceptional.
