Scipio's rating

Scipio (1269) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2013
Pours a deep amber with a big and frothy white head. The aroma consists of a good amount of grape, along with caramel, pine, and some light citrus hops. It smells like a mild wine. The taste is odd, considering the heavy grape impressions. Outside of the grape, there is a lot of citrus notes. Grapefruit and lemon are strong, gathering in strength after sipping. Light pine in here. Its bitter and slightly sour. More light in body, with an oily texture. The oiliness lingers in your mouth. Easy bubbly carbonation, leaning towards flatness. The more you drink of this, the more you realize how different this one is. It gains a bit of a feeling of a wild ale actually. It takes a bit getting used to. It probably helps if you might enjoy wine. I’m enjoying this the more I drink.

Almost feels like it wants to go to a sour but not really close. Can taste some hops and a nice grape finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

edheady (1) - Kentucky, USA - DEC 28, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2017 12 oz bottle grape flavor with no hint of hops at all. It is a beer that is for the drinker who likes a fruity beer with no hop flavor.

Bottle pours clear crimson with a small whitish head. Aroma is musty, vinous, earthy. Flavor is mildly sweet grape, slight hop bitterness. A little watery for what I'd like. Medium bodied and crisp. Above average.

12floz bottle, BOD: 09.29.2017, $1.75 unit cost, tulip glass. Appears a very dark amber color with pinkish tinged head. Caramel aroma deceives my taste buds as it tastes like a bitter plum. Body - medium. Carbonation - low. Bitterness - medium. Sweetness - low. Sourness - low. Saltiness - low. Drinkability - medium. Overall - medium.

Docavey (96) - Lehigh Acres, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2017
Interesting brew with grape must in the mix. Light hoppy nose. Pours out red but tastes like IPA without really any fruit flavor. Head is short-lived. Crisp mouthfeel. Balanced hops and malt that is not too heavy despite the 6.5% ABV. Enjoyed this from a bottle. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nearbeer (5662) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 24, 2017
12 oz. bottled 09/28/2017. Crimson-copper brew with nice legs and a lasting creamy film of foam. Aroma of grape, autumn leaves, blackberry, caramel and maybe a touch of orange zest. Tastes of earthy leaf, non-sweet grape wine, wood, blackberry and a touch of caramel. Medium body has medium-plus mostly smooth carbonation and a dry winy slant.

330ml bottle. Strong grape notes dominate over any hops, but it’s a nice grape. Blackcurrant, sweet syrup, a little tart cranberry. Not a bad drop.

Probablemente, una de las mejores IPAs que probé. Alucinante, en botella y con 6 meses

thepatrickman (1503) - Lewes, East Sussex, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2016
Bottle. An interesting combination of IPA and wine. The hop presence is really subdued, and it’s the Syrah grapes that dominate the taste. It’s moderately sweet and fruity, with an interesting wine character. Bonus points for the experimentation that went into making this.
