Pours plum red. Aroma of hops. From the first sip I could tell this was a big beer. Hops hit you up front..very similar to the cascade hops in Sierra Nevada pale ale, but there is the slight sweetness of grapes in the aroma and flavor that make this beer interesting. By no means a fruity beer. With such big hops and full body, this brew has just enough syrah essence. Dogfish nailed it again!

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.

Pours a light purple color ale with aroma of bitter hops with grape notes. Fruity complexity with hoppiness

Bottled on 02/26/2013. 12 oz bottle into a DFH signature glass. A - Pours a ridiculous bright clear purple red/color that very much so looks like a fruity wine ala boones farm. Two fingers of white foam form initially but after ten minutes itís still holding onto a solid fingers worth. Rock on 61 Minute! Silky lacing and some serious retention. Like the kind where after you give it a swirl a layer of foam will form on the top of the glass and the foam will trickle down leaving a cool design, and then it just stays there frozen in time. This looks great. S - Huh, this is pretty wild. A massive fruity red grape presence blended perfectly with light piney hops, a touch of citrus, and bready malts. The base beer is still present while the grapes have a whole lot of action going on. Somehow, this just works. T - Red grape juice, kiwi, pine, and some caramel malts on the end. The bitterness goes head to head with the fruitiness and they wind up shaking hands and building a tree fort together. God dammit this is unique and tasty. Finishes with hardly any bitterness, just some malts and residual sweetness. Its pretty juicy compared to the dryness that Noble Rot had. Mouth feel is medium and creamy with really lively carbonation. O - I can see a lot of people either loving or hating this beer. I for one am a huge fan of this beer. When its not fresh I can see this being a total mess, but in its month old state it is really nice. Its a fruity take on the standard 60 minute that winds up not being a total gimmick or novelty.

Has a nice, sweet aroma. The beer has an attractive appearance: a red hue and a nice foam cap on top. The taste is a slight mix of the bitter IPA and the fruity taste of the wine. Very nice overall.

It looks like grape juice, or wine. You can smell the grape, and some berry notes. The finish tastes just like a wine, it's dry. Taste- Starts off with a mixture of Syrah, some light cherry and strawberry. You can taste some hops like you normally do from an IPA, but the marriage between wine and beer is great with this beer. There isn't much of a piney taste with this beer, and that's great with this style of IPA, and wine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear amber rose with super small bubbly head. Very light and sweet aroma. Sweet start. Very palletable bitterness. Earthy. Champagne mouthfeel. Great beer. Extremely unique

Bottle. This enters with a unique reddish amber color and a thin but reluctant head of pale white foam. The aroma is earthy, but reminds me of a musty yet clean wooden barn. This drinks, IMHO, with the same characteristic base as Dogfishís ApriHop, one of my favorite beers. The base is subtle and somewhat woodsy, with the fruitiness of the Syrah adding a unique aspect that somewhat reminds of what itís like to eat a fruit with the rind or without ... with the rind you get that bit of fiber-rich, extra flavor. Same here. I hope to see more of this. (#5009, 5/7/2013)

Pours ROSE with a small white head. Aroma is sweet and earthy with some citrus. Flavor is very smooth, sweet musty grape skins, slightly tart, with malt and citrus hops, amazing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
