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 (3889) - 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.

Sounds better on paper than it actually is. Has a weird burnt sugar flavor and a slight marshmallow type flavor that don't marry well with the hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a nice dark golden color. Fruity aromas of grapes and citrus. Very nice. Sweet honey malts and grape juice flavours followed by a nice pleasing bitterness.

Strykzone (5525) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2013
12 ounce bottle poured into a plastic cup. Oh well. Amber red with a cool looking beige foam on top. I smell crackery malts and yeast with floral and citrus hops. Grapes are tasted along with those hops. A bit of a bitter bite to the hops. Thisis kind of a classic west coast IPA with grapes. Malts are rich and sweet. It is balanced toward them. Some cracker in there. Feel is a little fizzy. Unique but DFH has brewed odder stuff than this. I like it.

Beaver (1456) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours clear ruby amber with a big rocky pinkish white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is grape skins and grapefruit with some earthy hops.

The flavor is sweet and bitter grapes with an earthy bitterness and some cranberry in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little watery.

Overall, an interesting idea, but I prefer their Aprihop.

Aroma is soured grapes, church winey. I get the under notes of hops and sweet malts. Very different for sure. Flavor brings out a dry red wine presence. Not bad, just not what I expected.

Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Pours plum red. Aroma of hops. From the first sip I could tell this was a big beer. Hops hit you up front..very similar to the cascade hops in Sierra Nevada pale ale, but there is the slight sweetness of grapes in the aroma and flavor that make this beer interesting. By no means a fruity beer. With such big hops and full body, this brew has just enough syrah essence. Dogfish nailed it again!
