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.
