As a huge fan of Syrah, this one piqued my interest. When colder, at a "proper" IPA temperature, the dryness supplied by the Syrah grapes is a bit overpowering. Allow to warm to near room temperature and this one becomes quite nice. Pours a beautiful light ruby with light, white head that retains a ring around the glass even while warming and sitting for quite a long time. Overall a nice, crisp - finishing surprise.

Pours a dark amber with a small foam head that recedes almost immediately, leaving a thin, uneven white head with lacing around the edges.

Not much going on in the aroma. Grape is most noticeable. Raspberry.

Taste follows the nose. Grape comes on rather strong. Really has more of a grape juice/red wine taste to it. A little bit of cherry, possibly some fig. Some light malty notes. A little bit of sourness. Honestly there's just very little going on in the taste here.

Medium bodied. Good carbonation. Goes down a bit sticky, but easily downable.

An interesting brew by DFH, but not one of their better ones. Worth a try, but not worth revisiting.
