12oz. bottle into Tired Hands stemware.

Pours a light pink-purple frothy head with decent retention. Beer is a stunning, clear dark purple. Lacing is stringy and spotty with good stick. Really unique given the style. I'd expect nothing less from DFH.

Nose is candied grape, gummy, cane sugar and just the slightest bit of tropical hope bite. Really sweet and sugary.

Opens slightly tart grape skin and lime. Hints of pineapple, more grape and a tropical hope bitterness in the middle. Finishes grape skin, a slight bit of booze, and the mellow, hop bitterness. Same aftertaste. Ok.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down aggressive and slightly dry. Dry finish with a filmy, resiny aftertaste. Solid.

This beer is great on the presentation but a bit shallow on substance. The grape addition doesn't work well with the tropical hop presence and it all ends up being a bit confused. Unique for sure though.

A - one inch creamy purple head, color is reddish-purple

S - hops, grain, grape, some wheat, some type of mixed berries

T - bitter from the hops, but sweet from the fruitiness from the grape, can taste berries, almost like a red wine taste, there is taste of malt as well

M - medium bodied, crisp, slightly tart

O - I find this beer to be very good for an IPA that has a good amount of hops but also some sweet from the fruit beer in it. Really excellent balance of grape and hops. Not a session beer, but something that I would enjoy on summer day. Great aroma of hops and citrus/grape fruits that really carry all the way through to the taste.

Poured into my trusty pint glass. Nice color and some head. Not bad Looks and tastes like a red seedless grape. And red seedless grapes are a great seller so this beer is your cross between a beer and a nice fine red wine. Love this beer to death and the price isnt bad for its quality. Cheers to Dogfish Head
