I should not bring any expectations to the table. Even reading the label threw me off.

Pours a cloudy redish purple with no head and no lacing.

Smells of bready malt. Not what I was expecting. No hops. Some red wine in there.

Taste is the same but more pronounced. I would never call this and IPA if I hadn't read the label. Definitely some red wine and berry flavors from the must but they are not intense enough. Again, the hop signature is no where to be found for me.

Overall this beer was light and drinkable. %6.5 is masked well. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. However, what I would want in a beer with this description is more flavor from both the hops and the wine.

Served from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Ruby, almost fuscia appearance. Modest carbonation bubbles. Very light pink 1/2 finger head that dissipated fairly quick. Nice lacing on the glass.

Typical IPA aromas of citrus, pine, some floral notes as well.

The taste followed its aroma for the most part with the exception that I detected a grapefruit taste. Also there was a very subtle tangy aftertaste that I attributed to the grape must.

The mouth feel was smooth. Didn't really notice the carbonation in the mouth.

Overall, it was a nice beer. Flavorful with a slight hop bite. Refreshing on a summer day. I would recommend this beer to folks that like flavored IPA's.

One of the more odd-sounding mixtures I have encountered. The grape must pairs pretty nicely with the hops to create a brew that tastes quite a bit like sparkling grape juice, although certainly not as sweet. I certainly wouldn't say that it tastes like wine, although a rose might be a good approximation to the color of the beer. Nose is sweet grape (duh) with citrus notes from the hops. Not my favorite DFH by any means, but still worth a try.
