Wow am I glad I only bought a single bottle. Nice looking pour with fast fizzy head. Sort of purple amber look. Smell is round and not much hops. Taste is dominantly red win ish with round malt profile being dominant. Not much else going on.

Hoppy in the nose with clear elements of tart berry. Pours a clear reddish with white, thick foam. Medium to light body with moderate fizz. Hoppy taste, bitter / piney. The fruit comes out with some sour / bitterness that gives the beer some depth. A touch of saline and a tannic finish. Wurst Party Ever 7 November 2015.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. The appearance is a clear mild copper color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is fruit and hops. The taste matches the aroma. An average beer.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Bulk_Carrier (3539) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - MAY 3, 2016
This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a burnt red color with a moderate transparency about it. One finger white foamy head quickly dissipates. Messy foamy head all around. The smell was pretty awful - malted cherries, burnt sugars, sticky burnt bread, grape must. It didnít combine at all. The taste was just cherry to grape sweet. The aftertaste was way too sticky with the malts. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium. Definitely cloying in the feel. And then a semi-dry finish. Overall, yeah, not sure what happened here, but this is probably one of the worst Dogfish Head beers Iíve ever had. No chance in hell, Iíll come back to this.

Pours light purple - aroma is wine, hops and baked bread. Basically wine with hops. Not what I expected by it works

oldrtybastrd (4951) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2016
Pours a golden reddish with fizzy head. Aromas of fruit, grass, and yeast. Flavors of grass, wine notes, damn tasty...probably one of my top ten Dogfish brews.

MrMeadMan (73) - Amesbury, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Not much aroma on this one. Pours an odd color something between a light orange and a magenta. The hops character is masked or lacking giving the brew a watery taste. Overall not that enjoyable.

Freaky_tiki (1013) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2016
An odd duck of an IPA. Pours purple kool aid with a limp scattering of bubbles on the surface. Thereís probably a pretty descent ipa buried underneath this but the grape must just smothers it. The reviewer below -- with the badass mutton chops -- nails it when it says that it tastes like a refrigerator. More of a beer fest sampler than a take home bottle.

This beer was the one that got me into craft beers. One of my favorite beers from dogfish. It is a carbonated beer with a grape flavor really easy to drink and great for when you are trying to have a relaxing evening at home

Smells ok grape koolaid and like. Lovely rose like color. Taste of sour grape for a bit the finishes off with a butterscott flavor quite unique flavor profile. Medium body with nice sweet crisp carbonation. Way to think outside the box.
