I had to think abou tit for a minute and after that I realized that how could you not give this a ten for aroma. Itís freaking beer and it smells like a mild and sweet beer. It looked like beer so lets rate it accordingly. It tasted like a mild IPA because of the grapes infused in the beer. It did not leave an aftertaste. And overall it was pretty damn good. I could take this beer home to my mom but think about it my momís an alcoholic so I can take anything with alcohol home to her. I really enjoyed this beer more than i thought i would. HA HA i just said would....Donít forget dont drink and drive and dont drink and forget your piece of big red gum. I love you guys...im out.

Crystal clear amber with a rose tinge. Smells like an IPA but you can definitely detect the grape/wine scent. Same in the taste, definitely an IPA with something different added that also adds a sweet edge to it. Very interesting twist on the 60 minute IPA.

12 oz bottle pours red with a white head. Aroma of malts, pine and grapes. Taste is sweet malts, grapes and light resin.

12 oz from total wine. Pours a clear raspberry color which I was not expecting. Light and refreshing with lots of grape and a dry finish. Touch of pine and grapefruit hops. Subtle on the hops. Lightly sweet. Pretty light and refreshing.

Pours a light raspberry color with little head. Aroma is lots of grape, and some hop character behind it with a bit of breadiness. Flavor is hops with grapes, really very refreshing. Not any kind of gross fruitiness you sometimes get with this "fruit beer" style. Yeasty breadiness lingers on your palate which makes this way better than I was expecting. Itís no 60 or 90 min but itís good.

Vestergaard (269) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2014
Pours red with a hint of brown. Head is white and short lasting. Aroma is very hoppy, but has dry, vinous notes and a weak sweetness. Taste is very hoppy as well, but definately have got some wine-grapes to it. Much lighter than i recall he Syrah grape, but the beer of course doesnít have the same alcohol, or the more dense body of a red wine. I donít really think that the grape must improves the taste of the beer, but it is present for sure, and does provide some complexity.

Red with pink glows. Aroma: malty, hops, fresh an winery. Taste and palate: medium body, bitter, wine notes equal to a rosé wine, floral, red fruits and dry at the end. Very nice hybrid.

Bottle. An interesting selection for the folks at Dogfish Head brewing. Not your grandpas IPA. Pours a purplish brown with a nice full purple tinged head. Dissipates with good uniform lacing. Aroma is has a slight Chardonnay undertone to the IPA smell. Sweet grape offsets the normally dry IPA taste. Great change of pace. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very tasty beer for an IPA not too hoppy... Lots of flavor great pick up from dog fish head selection not too... I'd say a great starter to head into the more ultra hoppy IPAs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I seriously canít remember the last time I was more disappointed with a beer. Iím sure its happened but this one has to rank up there as one of the most disappointing ones ever. Iím normally somewhat forgiving of DFH in their attempts at experimentation, but sometimes you have to stop and realize youíve just produced something awful and just dump it, donít bottle it, pretend its an interesting experiment and foist it on an unexpecting public. Thatís the sort of thing that makes people stop buying your beer. You want me to stop buying DFH altogether? Cuz thatís how you get me to stop buying DFH altogether. Oh wait, you know what? The last time I was this disappointed was 7 years ago when I bought DFH Fort. Man, really. Oh and the review? Stale wine and cigarette butts. That is accurate and the beer doesnít otherwise deserve more analysis than that. Somebody deserves to get kicked in the nuts for this.
