crazyvin (1967) - New York, USA - JUN 8, 2013
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.

Bottled@SBWF2014. Deep red colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, some mild toffee and nutty notes. Flavour is fruity, floral, mild berries as well as some rosy and floral notes. Nothing that special.

Block (1461) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Kind of an average Dogfish Head beer. Good hops in the aroma which caries to the body. A bit of a grape flavor, not much, hard to detect.

Aroma of hops, grapes, taste is sweet but also bitter from the hops, nice balance but not overly complex. Its good and I could drink a few

downender (6391) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle from Bo Brooks’ Lighthouse Liquors, Baltimore. Deep copper in colour, with next to no head. Unpleasant, sweet, caramel and butter aroma. Flavour, by contrast, was a lot better - an enjoyable vinous edge, still sweetish, crisp malts and a moderately bitter finish. A mixed bag.

355ml bottle as a gift from Virginia:
Bright amber boardering on orange to red with a 0.5cm foamy, white head. Slightly cloudy with little movement throughout. Starts like a typical IPA with citrus & pine with a nice balance & nothing too strong. Some floral notes & sweetness come through next. The grapes start to come early on with various fruits, sweetness & malts following not far behind. The hop bitterness is quite subtle & some wine -like notes round things off. Citrus & pine but it’s lighter than the nose. Some white grapes & a slightly acidic taste that is reminiscent of white wine come next before sweetness & malts come through with hints of tropical fruits as well. Smooth with more carbonation than I was expecting, maybe just past medium with a nice tang to it with hints of spice too. Some sweetness appears with a hint of alcohol towards the end. Quite a good effort from Dogfish Head & on its own a really nice beer but when it follows on from the previous two from the brewery that I’ve tried it has to be said that this one definitely wasn’t their best.

This is a cool, funky beer. Leans more wine than beer (though some IPA comes through). Don't know if I'd buy a six-pack, but I'm glad I had it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Arayaga2 (1799) - portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Rosey amber with a slightly pinkinsh head. This is some sort of red grapefruit shandy, perhaps? Whatever it is, it’s not very good.

BuckeyeBoy (2837) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 12, 2014
12oz bottle thanks to Eric. Pours out a pinkish amber color topped with a pink head. Nose is berries tart and a nice hop touch. Taste is as the nose with a nice sweet fruit and a tropical fruit.

Pours a deep copper with a violet tint. Minimal off-white head with some lacing. Earthy aroma with some grape notes. The flavor is musty and wine like. Low hop character for an IPA. Light body with a smooth mouthfeel. Sweet fruity finish with a lingering aftertaste.
