Poured into a perfect pint.
3.25 A: Clear light amber color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average with just a few wisps of lacing left behind.
3.75 S: This is definitely an interesting take on the normal brew. Earthy and citrusy hops. Caramel maltiness. Awesome extra layer of goodness with the grape in there. It works very well.
3.75 T: Grape is the feature of the nose. It leads the way with every sip. Earthy and citrusy hops with caramel malts.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Could be a bit creamier, but good enough.
3.5 D: Interesting take on a solidly drinkable brew.

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.
