Definitely odd, but I liked it. Pours pink, with a fragile white head. Smells hoppy and also like red wine. Flavor is lots of hops up front, the a nice sweet red wine note. Tasty stuff.

Very red wine colored pour. Small off-white head with some lacing left behind. A rotten fruit type aroma. Taste is along the lines of the aroma with a slight wine-ness. Tastes like a wine mixed with a bad ale. Not what I was expecting. Well, I didnt know what to expect. Strange beer that I was luckily allowed to split up the four pack.

On tap at Friendly Spot in San Antonio. Pours an unusual color, like a deep red/purple mixed with an IPA amber. Aroma is fruity and sweet, within some hops, but it has a wine/IPA combo smell, and the taste is similar: a watered down IPA, with a grape taste. I'm glad dogfish pushes the edge, and I'll continue to try their unusual stuff, but I don't think this one stands out. I think my wife would like it though! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured a slightly reddish color with a small off-white head. Aroma of grapes and citrus. Lots of berries and grapes. The taste has citrus notes with dry grapes. Slightly like wine. Maybe a little too much grape, but the flavors blend together nicely. It is a really nice take on an IPA.

Really nice... A little thin and a different color but a great nose and flavor. For IPA lovers its a nice change of pace!

Purplish amber color. No distinctive aroma. Average head and body. Taste was a good IPA---but muted. I dont get the point!

Pours a reddish amber with a smaller bubbly white head. Aroma of red wine grapes, citrusy hops and caramel. Also getting lots of berry notes. Flavor of red wine, citrusy hops. Nice and dry. The grape must really helped cut through the caramel malt of the sixty. Also the typical doggie yeast profile isnt as dominant as it is in most DFH beers.

Bottle pour into an alchemist glass. Pours a weird purple amber color with a decent white head. Smell is fruity and earthy and again with syrup. Taste is definitely grape... Like watered down grape juice, a little hoppy resin, some astringency, and malt. Carbonation is perfect. Not a fan.

From bottle. Pours a nice amber color with white head. Aroma is hoppy with a hint of grapes. Taste comes in as a red wine, fades to a 60 minute then back out as a red wine. A little dry.
