UPDATED: JUN 9, 2013 Poured a nice pinkish amber hue with a nice white head that had good retention and no lace. Aroma had a nice mix of wine grapes, mild caramel malts and a nice grapefruit hop note. Flavor had some nice hop notes, leaning towards the grapefruit side, mild flavor from the grape musts and a nice delicate sweetness.

Candy like,winey aroma with hops. Appearance is cherry color with a white head with poor retention. Flavor is tastes like sweet candy with hops added. Mouthfeel is medium light with medium carbonation. Overall, besides the color the beer is a bust. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle served in a pilsner glass. A thin coat of sediment was lwft stuck to the bottom. Well, the "Syrah grape must" is obvious on pouring as this "India Pale Ale" has an unusual rosy amber color. The head was cent if a bit thin and weak. Spotty lacing. The grape addition is also obvious in the aroma, where the grape must about holds its own with the hops. Grapes and hops blend nicely here, as long as you don’t mind that the grapes really tame the hops. Mildly bitter/sweet. O: I quite enjoyed this off-center IPA both times I’ve had it. Be forewarned that the hop level is low: more like that of an Amer. Pale Ale, and the bitterness is low even for that style.

Aroma is quite musty, not very appealing actually. Not a fan of this. It has a smooth but funky finish presumably due to the grape must. Try it once, but that will likely be the last time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Madsen1635 (334) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle. Clear reddish pour with small offwhite head. Aroma is fresh with grapes and tropical fruit. Taste is again dominated by the grapes. It starts with some bitterness but mellows out. Odd but actually okay

glennmastrange (2343) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Bottle. Moderate grain for the malt, flowers for the hops, light dough and musty for the yeast, with damp wood and a hint of vinegar. Head is average to large, fizzy, light pink with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy reddish orange. Flavor starts faintly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly bitter. Palate is medium, creamy with a soft to lively carbonation. Nice tasting beer, everything fits in this Fruit Beer.

Sometimes I forget how good Dogfish Head can be. Aroma of fresh hops - pretty much straight-up 60 minute - but the flavor is totally changed with the addition of the syrah grapes. Delicious - hoppy and sweet. I love it.

Rödskimmring i kroppen. Rätt dov i både arom och smak. Del fruktig, sötma, malt.

A really nice pale ale with a hint of grape. Comes across dark and heavy but is quite complex and wonderful.

I'm not sure the grape musk does much for this beer. Appearance is dark brown, cloudy with a slight rose tint. Very light aroma with some musty dried fruit hints.Pleasant on the palate, with medium carbonation. Taste is okay but surprisingly little hop, but quite a pleasant grape sensation at the end. Refreshing, but nothing special ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MB really loved this but it was a bit underwhelming to me. A hazy brownish red pour. Light fruity aroma. Fruity flavor; thin body. Just a bit of grape to it.
