A: cranberry in color. Thin, foamy, light pink head.
T: light beer and Cabernet flavors. Weird. I am lost for a description. Literally carbonated Cab.
M: medium high carbonation. Crisp. Dry.
I: good "beer". Strange, but good. Hard to describe. Tasty. The only beer in 155 ratings I can't describe. But, I like it.

Had on tap at Newt's in Shippensburg PA. Served at around 6deg C

A- 3.75- Dark red color. No head at all.

S- 3.5- No much here. Can't smell the Shiraz at all. The hops overpower all.

T- 3.25- A bit bland. Sour a bit yes but not a well blended mix. Don't think this is young or anything, just not mixed well

M- 3.0- Not much carbonation at all. Not the fault of anything but exceptionally flat.

O- 3.61- This is what I wish I could give this beer.

Food Pairing

I had this beer with..... Hoagie burger. Pretty good burger.

Pours a clear, copper/purple color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong hops, citrus, sweet malt, slight yeast, hint of wheat, and a hint of pine. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pine, hint of citrus, sweet malt, slight caramel malt, hint of yeast, and hint of alcohol. Overall, decent appearance, good aroma, decent feel, and good body.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Nice amber reddish color with a thin head.
Aroma of red fruits, sweet cranberries, peaches and pineapples.
Flavor of cranberries, green tea, cinnamon, apples, spicy yeast, musty taste and red wine. Very dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with good carbonation.
Original IPA fruity flavored, though a bit cloying. Nevertheless, worth trying.

Poured into a glass.

A - Light clear pink grapefruit. Two finger white head. Excellent retention. Nice lacing.

S - Grapefruit, grapes, a little pine

T - Starts with a burst of grapefruit, malt, and pine. Ends with light grape notes.

M - Light. Leaves an enjoyable coating on the mouth, reminiscent of grapes.

O - Drank this for 20 minutes. I don't think this smacks of a beer/wine combo like others have posted. However. The longer it sat, the more the grapes shone through. An exceptional beer experience.

I bought a couple of bottles of Sixty-One in a bottle shop. Poured in to a pub glass.

Pours a predictable grape red color I guess, with a thin bubbly head.

Smell is a sweet fruity aroma, grape I guess, with a hint of a hop scent.

Taste is OK. It's a grape flavored fruit beer. I think it tastes a little like the old High C fruit punch.

Mouthfeel is a bit flat. Not the zip you would expect from an IPA.

Overall just an average novelty beer. I wouldn't have it again.
