3.55/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

4-pack - 12 ounce bottles - $8.98 at Sherlock's in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Bottled on: 08/01/13.

Appearance: Pours a dark pink-purple body, clear, with a medium-sized, white head. Very meager lacing.

Smell: Displays a blend of citrus, a sliver of sweet-scented malts, mild spice, moderately vinous grape must with a lightly tart, berry vibe to it.

Taste: Slender malts, a nibble of cracker, a faint sweetness. Berryish flavor from the syrah grape must with a middling tartness about it. Growing spiciness and citrusy, faintly resiny hops with an anticipated pop of bitterness. 61 walks the line between being vinous and hoppy on the back half until the fairly dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation, lightly foamy.

Overall: Not bad, not great, but I finished the four-pack. It was a nice twist without entirely sacrificing the original's hop character.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served from a 12 oz bottle into a wine goblet.

A - Color is a light to medium amber with a definite burgundy cast. Clear but not brilliant. Head is white, creamy and smooth but not very thick. Good lacing.

S - Overall impression in the aroma is sweet and buttery. No overt malt, but there is a definite musty, red wine aroma. Hops are there, but restrained. The hops aroma seems to combine with a strong red wine aroma to become something earthy rather than sharp and citrusy. Very different but inviting.

T - Flavors are very malty, with biscuit and buttered toast coming to mind. There's a definite buttery note along with crystal malt sweetness. There is also an unmistakeable red wine flavor that blends with everything else seamlessly. Hops bitterness seems moderate.. Some low citrus and earthy hops flavor.

M - Medium to heavy body with some creaminess, almost like an oatmeal effect. Carbonation is creamy but not overly strong. Low alcohol presence.

O - The hops aspects of this IPA seem to be blunted and toned down by the unusual wine ingredients. Hopheads will be disappointed, maybe even irate, but I enjoy this beer on its own quirky merits.
