Poured from the 12oz bottle into a tulip.

A: Poured a light red, almost pomegranate color. A light, white head of spritzy carbonation.

S: Very strong aroma of grape must. A little candy sweetness in the background, but it is dominated by the sour grape.

T: Grape must is upfront. Not sure where the IPA is supposed to come in. This tastes like someone just brewed a beer that they wanted to taste like white wine. A very tart aftertaste.

M: Light like a wine spritzer, the carbonation isn't as high as I expected by the appearance.

O: Not the best I've had. Not the best brewed with grape must. Just not my thing.

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.
