Another off centered attempt by dogfish. Good hit. Pours light purple with a pink head. Aroma is fruity. Grape palate with a bitter finish. I like it.

Draft. Pours like fizzy grape juice. Smells like wine. Tastes like fizzy wine. Bartender says it goes well with BBQ. Could definitely see that.

I enjoyed this. In taste similar to the 60 minute with a slight woodiness around the edges. Color is beautiful, similar to a clairet. Nose is more complex that the 60 as well, with slight funk.

Not a bad beer, just a bad IPA. Looks lovely, with a nice red hue. On the nose, it reminds me a bit too much of white zin. Gentle in the mouth initially, but unfolds into a layer of grapes with very little hop presence. The finish disappears rather quickly.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sample at South Philly Tap roomPours reddish brown with huge head and soapy lacing. Aromas and flavor of dogfish rust, grapes, shampoo, shit hops and other gross flavors I have grown accustomed to from Dogfish. Too carbonated and thin, not of fan of this one and 80% of the their other beers. Glad I didn’t pay for this one.

(bottle - 12 oz) Reddish pour with an off-white head. Aroma is surprisingly sweet for an IPA. Some good fruit notes. Bitter and grassy flavor mixed with some fruit sweetness and some citrus notes. Finish is fruity with some dry hops. Different but really good.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear reddish-purple color with a white head. Aroma is diacetyl, old grapes, bread. Taste is sweet with grape notes and some bitterness. Thinner bodied with a slick texture. A novelty; ok.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish colored pour with a white head. Fruity, sweet nose of grape juice. A bit of citrus, some paper, and grass. Interesting. The flavor isn’t bad. Very fruit forward and sweet. Grape juice, citrus, and maybe some strawberry. The flavor is lightly bitter on the finish. Some pine, a touch of paper, and some malt.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Lemon Tree, Downers Grove. Pinkish body and head, with close, tight-knit bubbles. Nose is mostly malt sweetness, with just a little bit of hop. Once tasted, I find the lighter barrage of northwestern hops, with a citrusy aspect that should play well with the grape. But it’s more subdued that the usual DFH hop bomb, more there for appreciation. A bit of fruit comes through toward the end, more like strawberry and a bit of rose.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A vaguely pinkish orange with medium white head. Aroma sweet cherries, bit of citrus. Medium body. Some carbonation. Flavor is just on the non-sweet side of fruity, finishes slightly bitter from the hops. Interesting idea, and it’s drinkable but I think shows that hops and wine don’t really mix.
