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

Bottle - Has a light purple pour. Has an aroma and taste of champagne. Interesting but not one I would look for again.

Dorwart (2394) - 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 (9559) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle... Pours deep, clear and dirty orange with rosé 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 that’s what I get. Full-bodied with a fatty mouthfeel and jazzy carbonation. Admittedly, this bottle isn’t 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!

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.

bookman10 (663) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2014
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. It’s not all that great, but ultimately, not that bad, either.
