2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
This is a really pretty beer, which is the best thing I can say about it, by far. Its a nice rosey hue like one of those syrupy mess fake lambics. The nose is decent I guess, not too offensive with whiffs of grape but almost no trace of hop character. Taste is a little more off, kind of this weird vineous grapey mild sweetness with something kinda metallic. Not my jam at all.

Reddish tan with a hint of purple, light lacy head. Floral aroma with light wine aroma. Flavor: is it wine, is it beer? Who cares. I like it. Grape flavor dominates a bit but still a good balance. If I feel like a beer I would choose something else, if I feel like wine there is a good chance I'll go 61.

There’s a definite grape overtone and a hoppy undertone that lead to a wonderful flavor blend. It’s easy to drink, could be my favorite IPA, though I’m hard pressed to call it one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a four finger faint pink head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Crystal clear copper/red color. Strong carbonation and medium bodied. Light hop nose and flavor is tart grapes and some hops. $3.49 for a 12oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Marlboro, MA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Color is almost a violet copper. Thin head. Some lace. Fruity hop type aroma with berry, fresh grape like woody tannin. Kinda funky but not in a weird off way. Taste is hoppy but equally a tart grape tannin woody with some dryness. Woody tannin with the bitter. Its interesting and pretty good. I like it. Tastey and different.

Bottle: Slight haze, light red brown, medium to poor head. Sweet berry fruit,malty and a slight pine to citrus lift almost like mandarin or orange. Clean, fruity aroma. Dry, bitter palate with low or no sourness. Palate is medium weight and moderately long. Moderate carbonation with fine bead.
Interesting and funky. Loads of hops but lots of malt and obvious berry flavor.

Bottle. All I can say is wow! Not a wine fan but if wine was like this, count me in! Truly is their 60 min IPA with one added ingredient....grape must. Dogfish head has it figured out!!

The beautiful boutique of hops comes through just like it does in Sixty Minute, but this has a nice little fruity twist to it. Color is orange with a rose hue. Nice lacing. Grapes really come through in the flavor. I enjoyed the addition, makes it unique.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a rocky light pink head that lingers and leaves great lace. Aroma is hay, body is thin, taste is lightly bitter, average carbonation, with a lightly sour, lightly bitter, faintly grape tartness in the finish. Had to look-up what grape must is. Interesting beer, okay.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours light orange with a really glaring ruby tint. Sort of musky odor with a little bit of grape in the nose. Almost a sharp tartness at the beginning with some cherry notes melding into some mild lemon zest and finally ends with a sort of dry bitterness. It’s a little different, but not that unusual for a dogfish head.
