Growler. Clear golden with a creamy white head and champagne carbonation. Beautiful floral caramel, red wine, oak, vanilla, citrus, and apple aroma and taste with a sweet wine barrel finish and a light touch of tartness. Nice soft lively palate.

Cloudy glowing orange color. Very clean, light fragrant, soap like aroma. Surprisingly hop sourness. The wine pulls put and the grapes tartness, but still an underlying hop bitterness. Slight wood aftertaste.

Man is this a big improvement over the original. The use of red wine barrels lends a tartness that overcomes the originals cloying sweetness. Aroma is currants raspberries and a hint of blackberry with belgian esters, clove. taste is tart and sip-able. palate is tart and drying. By the time I was about to order my second the keg was tapped. REALLY good.

Ports a translucent orange with a slight amber hint thathas a very thin foam but creamy had very good lacing. Aromas of orange lemon hops and a little bit of red wine. Taste is very full with orange juice hops slightly bitter dry red wine. Awesome blend of a IPA and red wine

Pours a cloudy orange, with a reddish tint. Big red wine barrel on the nose, with a hint of Belgian yeast and hops. Flavor is very similar, nice red wine, and oak character. Hops are present, so is the yeast note, but the red wine is the star here.

Tap @ Stone O’Side. Golden, slightly hazy pour with a slick of white foam. Aroma is pleasant, vinuous grapes with light , dry malt and hop bitterness. Taste is lingering red wine with light grape tart, minimal yeast/clove, pepper, and a nice balance of sweet malt and piney hop bitterness into the finish. Clean, smooth mouthfeel. The red wine influence is much stronger in this beer than other red wine treatments I’ve had from Stone and it is very well done.

A fantastically strong citrus aroma; cloudy golden appearance; strong citrus to hop flavor; moderately fizzy with a finish that lingers; overall, a good IPA made great by it's powerful aroma and uniquely strong citrus flavor
