12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a crystal-clear reddish color. The head is a one finger white shade. I love the look and the texture of the head, in particular. S: There is a shit ton of earthy mustiness to this one - okay, itís not the freshest bottle by any stretch, but the hops are damn near nonexistent. Unsweetened grape, caramel, and toffee notes round out the mediocre aroma. T: At first, it drinks much like 60 Minute, with its malty opening giving way to a vaguely citrusy midpoint. Itís the finish that ruins things, offering far too much musty sourness. Every once in a while, I notice a vinous tone on the aftertaste that I enjoy, but this is a mess otherwise. M: Sweet and a bit heavy. The vinous notes try to cleanse the palate, but instead only create astringency. I donít think its undrinkable, but there are too many conflicting qualities in both the flavor and the palate to make it O: This offering is proof positive that gimmicky and innovative are two entirely different beasts altogether - and this is most certainly the former. Itís basically 60 Minute crossed with a crappy wine. Címon, Dogfish Head, less gimmicky nonsense and more quality offerings!

Dorwart (2392) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Thin light pink head of fine bubbles which dissipates rather quickly. Cherry vanilla dominates the aroma with some butter and grapes thrown in for good measure. A really weird combination of aromas. Color is a slightly hazy medium red. More vanilla and cherries in the flavor with other fruit (raspberries and grapes). Very soft velvety mouthfeel. Light tartness late swallow. A strange brew but a pretty good one!

hopscotch (9555) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle... Pours deep, clear and dirty orange with rosť highlights and a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Great retention. The aroma offers notes of grapefruit and dust with a splash of Sauvignon Blanc. Wrong grape, but thatís what I get. Full-bodied with a fatty mouthfeel and jazzy carbonation. Admittedly, this bottle isnít at all fresh. The hops and malts are approaching perfect balance at this point. Crusty malt sweetness and a dessert wine-like aspect are equaled by earthy, citrusy, rindy bitterness. Finishes crisp, lightly sweet, and then raspy and dry.

Listigovers (369) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
Beautiful beautiful beer, red/rose gold colour and a white dense and two+ finger head. Winey and hoppy aroma. This is a very interesting beer with some of the texture and aftertaste of a red wine, it is smooth and easy to drink. I think it is great, thanks for experimenting dogfish!

tia (1011) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Tap @ Mellow Mushroom. Blush color light lacing. A light peppery dank bitterness. Not as hoppy as 60 min. A little grainy. A tad sour. Meh.

Shag (2638) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Amber color with a beige head. The aroma contains some citrus, caramel, grapes, and herbal notes. The flavor is somewhat bitter but mostly sour with some citrus lots of lemons, caramel, and a bit of sour apples and grapes. The aftertaste is a bit dry and sour. Overall this is a typical malty east coast IPA from Dogfish Head with a bit of sour thrown in. Its confused am I an IPA or a sour? Its neither. Its not bad but nothing I say seek out.

I actually prefer this to the regular 60-minute IPA. Pours a dark, reddish-amber, with smallish head. Aroma is fruity-grape. Flavor is grassy, with some muted fruit. Itís not all that great, but ultimately, not that bad, either.

Pours a hazy reddish/pink amber color with a medium off white head. The aroma is very different than the normal 60 min ipa, the grape is very prevalent. The taste is rather sweet. There is definitely a grape fruitiness but not overpowering and a slight citrusy taste as well. There is a slight hop bitterness but, once again, not as much as the traditional 60 min ipa. Overall, this is not a bad beer by any means but the original is superior in my opinion. This beer would be great for wine drinkers starting into beer.
