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.

An odd duck of an IPA. Pours purple kool aid with a limp scattering of bubbles on the surface. Theres 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.

Not good. This is a sour ale, which I am not fond of. I love Dogfish Head, and appreciate their experimentation, but I won't ever buy this again! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a distinct purple color with a purple-hued head. A nice hoppy IPA with notes of grape. Not bad.

Not bad on everything except for the flavor which kind of reminds me of refrigerator taste.

Light brown, clear, highly carbonated with frothy PINK head. Taste is musty dry, winey with floral hops at the finish. OK. Did I mention it has a PINK head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ExpendableHero (901) - Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2016
Drank this one at a winery in Vero Beach FL. They had lots of wine and a few beers. No pint glasses though so... straight from the bottle rating. Aromas of floral hops and something musty. Tastes of bitter floral hops, some weak citrus, and bitter grape juice. Bitter, almost sour, finish. Easy to drink but not a favorite. Think of an IPA with hints of dark wine.

mansquito (6069) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 2, 2016
At the brewery: pours reddish with a pinkish frothy head. Aroma is citrus, malt, and hints of grape. Taste is not very bitter, somewhat sweet, kind of confused but not off balanced. I guess that is the DFH way.
