Aroma is of hops and faint wine. While not a perfect IPA, it’s not supposed to be. After a few sips, the flavor mellows. I wouldn’t seek it, but if offered, wouldn’t pass up.

An interesting beer. Pours like an amber and the head has a pink hue. The grape must really covers up the hops.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours reddish amber with a white head. Taste grape, sweet, more fruit beer than IPA. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

While I consider Sixty-One to be more of an IPA than a Fruit Beer, Dogfish Head’s creation is an odd, bold ale from a brewery that has a knack for making odd, bold ales. Luckily, Dogfish is also known for making beers that are delicious, and Sixty-One holds to tradition in that respect, too. The grape element adds a fascinating layer to this IPA. Grapes tame the hop bitterness, yet bring out the juicy character in the hops. Rather than the usual flavors of citrus, Sixty-One’s hop profile hints at apple and berry. Aside from adding a bit of tartness to the flavor, the grape must creates a mildly sour aroma and a dry mouthfeel. While some connoisseurs have suggested that Dogfish’s latest creations are more hair-brained than nuanced, Sixty-One is the one that proves them wrong. The minds at Dogfish Head still have what it takes to make new beer that is unusual, unique, and superb.

Aroma is moldy, earthy. A touch of grape, but not strong. Reddish tan appearance, clear. Small white head. Taste is sour grape, wheat like taste. Warm aftertaste ...Apple? Not bad, Not great, but very interesting. .

Draught at the Hotel in San Diego. Deep golden beer with a rich offwhite head. Sourish hop flavor, creamy, grassy, grapefruit, citrus, some herbal notes. Fruity hop flavor, caramel, vinous, grapefruit, hay, some grapes. A bit strange.

Bottle pours mahogany with tan head. Aroma of wine. Flavor began more like a sour lambic with tart grapes and a light hop bitterness. The flavor became a little sweeter as it warmed and, to me, was better at a cool temperature than a cold, out of the fridge, temperature.

[Tap] Pours a reddish golden color with low carbonation levels. Aroma of grapefruit and grape juice. Taste is pretty similar. I don’t get quite as much wine in here as other people, but just that little bit just gives it a weird taste. High in acetaldehyde notes. Ehh.... Tasting notes from 2/2014.

I’m not even sure what to make of this beer. The grape must overwhelms anything resembling a DHF 60 Minute. It’s very dry. It looks like a carbonated Rose wine. Oh wait! It’s a wine cooler with hops! Now it all makes sense.
