blipp (7070) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours light clear red with a thin head. Weird red-wine-esque notes, light fruity hops, red berries, and toffee. Dry and slightly bitter finish. Not awful, but it just doesn’t really work for me, I guess. Not something I’d ever care to re-visit.

BlowOffTube (501) - Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Doesn’t go well with Krunchers original chips. Pours a purple clear hue with a white purplish head. Smells like grapes and dirt. Taste is like moth balls, grape, and little hops with a light body. Not great, not horrible, but drinkable with ease.

Butters (3966) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Clear bright amber with pinkish hues and fair ring of offwhite head. Slightly hoppy, but not how you would normally expect it. The red wine grape notes really mask the hoppiness quite a bit. Interesting twist. Kinda like a pale ale mixed with red wine. I actually kinda liked it.

Bottle. Pours a nice ruby color with a solid white head. Nose is toffee like with strong grape notes. Taste is very vinous. The grape really dominates. If the hops came through a bit more to balance the grape this could be good, but it's kind of mediocre as presently constituted. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour into a pint glass for this brew in Seattle. Grape must is weird, but this is the dogfish style...

BrewBoxer (2454) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark ruby red grape wine color with a mild head that fades. Taste develops as it warms. Slightly hoppy and sweet. Very interesting. Hope they come out in 4 packs ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a unique find on tap. As a fan of their line of IPAs, this was a pleasant twist. The effect of the grape added a new degree of complexity that was thoroughly enjoyable. For darkness be thy ally

adnielsen (10137) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a fairly clear pinkish maroon appearance with a fluffy white head. A touch funky, dry red grape, light plum, a bit spicy, mild piney hoppy aroma that is a bit strange. Herbal, earthy, spicy hoppy, dry, a bit tangy, red grape, light tannic flavor. These type of grape must beers really seem disjointed and don’t work for me.

SlovakSniper (3964) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2013
Une bière ambrée qui ne développe qu’un simple anneau de mousse. Un nez de malts grillés avec des notes légèrement boisées et des parfums de petites fruits rouges. Un goût peu amer mais fruité et suret avec des traces de céréales maltées qui n’offrent que très peu de sucrosité. En bouche, un liquide bien pétillant au corps de moyenne densité et à la texture légèrement huileuse. Une finale sèche et touchée par des raisins qui s’efforcent d’attaquer l’ensemble des tissus de ma bouche. Cette bière est intéressante mais je trouve qu’elle reste assez éloignée du concept même de la IPA.

Light strawbeery red. Hoppy, red wine nose.Light and crisp with hoppy bitterness with some grape flavor. Easy drinking.
