Great purple color, nice foamy head. Unfortunately, the sweet aftertaste isnít for me and left me slightly nauseous. Doesnít really work that well, certainly not like the peach one.

Bottle. Pours like a pretty rosť with a blush white head. Sweet candy orange aroma, with a bit of hay. Flavor is red wine, with a resinous sweet hop note. Finishes earthy, dry, with a back note of grape juice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear light burgundy pour with a thin white head. You can tell this has the grape content by the color. Taste kind of reminds me of a dry red wine. I always wonder if Samís trying to pick up the wine drinkers with this one. If so, why not open a winery? But it is well done...enjoyed it.

Pours a copper color with a very slight purple hue. Little to no head at all. Carbonation bubbles look larger and more soda like but not quite that large. Smells a bit like stale grape juice. Canít really place anything in the flavor other than some grape. Dry finish.

From the bottle. Pours a dull dark purple with big pink frothy head. Immediately the nose in vinous, hops, fruit, floral. Very delicate flavors, rose type flavors, with light caramel, floral character comes through again. Seems almost like a watered down sparkling wine. Interesting, but doesnít do it for me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish tan with a hint of purple, light lacy head. Floral aroma with light wine aroma. Flavor: is it wine, is it beer? Who cares. I like it. Grape flavor dominates a bit but still a good balance. If I feel like a beer I would choose something else, if I feel like wine there is a good chance I'll go 61.

Thereís a definite grape overtone and a hoppy undertone that lead to a wonderful flavor blend. Itís easy to drink, could be my favorite IPA, though Iím hard pressed to call it one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Color is almost a violet copper. Thin head. Some lace. Fruity hop type aroma with berry, fresh grape like woody tannin. Kinda funky but not in a weird off way. Taste is hoppy but equally a tart grape tannin woody with some dryness. Woody tannin with the bitter. Its interesting and pretty good. I like it. Tastey and different.
