4.11/5  rDev +13.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A-Poured into a snifter. It pours a ruby/amber/rose with a semi-thick white head that dissipates rather quickly. Not much lacing.

S-Somewhat musty, grapes/wine, and some malt

T-hop bitterness, light red wine/red grape flavors, the slightest hint of sourness, that ends with a graham cracker finish. Its crisp, clean, and refreshing. The hop bitterness is rather mild compared to other ipas. It is very different and I expected a stronger IPA presence. To me it tastes like a white zinfandel (minus the sweetness) blended with a hoppy beer, which is similar to what they are going for. Also, the hint of sourness made me think this would be a nice introduction into sour beers.

M-somewhat thin, but it does have a nice amount of carbonation

D-easy to drink, but it doesn't seem like a beer one would really session. It seems more of a sipper and that it might be good to pair with food.

Overall, this is an interesting beer that I would drink again. I'm not sure it should be compared with other IPAs because its completely different from the typical IPA experience. However, its a solid beer.

Aw, that's cute. It's pink! Minimal head. The smell is some piney hops and a definite hit of grapes. Not wine-like, but actually grapey. The taste starts with some sweet grapey malt that it cut fairly quickly by some nicely balanced grassy hops. The mouthfeel is slightly thick with some moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty good idea that translates into a tasty beer.

I really appreciate the concept Dogfish Head went for with this one. Syrah grapes add a wonderful aroma and body to this IPA and give it a slight fruity tone. It all combines together wonderfully giving crisp notes of pine and citrus with a mellow finish of booze soaked raisons. I would buy this again for sure! In my opinion its a perfect autumn IPA. Quite the skillful blend!
