Hands down one of the best beers. Complex yet drinkable.

Top of the my list of beers, from the Tap, in a glass is best. Never drink it out of the bottle.

Poured into my trusty pint glass. Nice color and some head. Not bad Looks and tastes like a red seedless grape. And red seedless grapes are a great seller so this beer is your cross between a beer and a nice fine red wine. Love this beer to death and the price isnt bad for its quality. Cheers to Dogfish Head

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.

A unique beer. I don't have much to compare it to, but I think it's a fantastic blend of beer and wine flavors.

A: Pours a amber to purple with a frost white head that lingers well and leaves some lacing on the glass. Definitely unique for an IPA.

S: Grape must dominates with hint of hops hidden behind. Almost like a grape sparkling cider but more depth.

T: Sometimes I taste a sparkling wine, sometimes an IPA - all in the same glass. I really like the play on each other. Crisp, fresh and a great for summer time.

M: Relatively light, but not too much so.

O: Unique brew and appreciate the different spin. Look forward to more availability on this year round brew.

This is a wonderful beer that doesn't fit into a particular standardized category... Dogfish Head did an excellent job pioneering something enjoyable, different, and unique when their competitors haven't

My favourite IPA in the wee months of summer. Reminiscent of a warm sunset on a Tuesday.

Great beer. Takes a truly fantastic beer -- 60 minute IPA and elevates it to a whole new level. A must try.

It looks like grape juice, or wine. You can smell the grape, and some berry notes. The finish tastes just like a wine, it's dry. Taste- Starts off with a mixture of Syrah, some light cherry and strawberry. You can taste some hops like you normally do from an IPA, but the marriage between wine and beer is great with this beer. There isn't much of a piney taste with this beer, and that's great with this style of IPA, and wine.

From a bottle into a snifter.

Color is ruby red. Beer has little carbonation, no head, and no lace.

Smell carries hints of grape and pine. Not a combination I've come across yet.

Taste is bitter hops and citrus with grape juice undertones. Lasts longer on the toung than I expected.

Overall good drinkability and enjoyable flavors!

L - Fantastic pinkish dark color

S - Heavy flavor from the grape must blends to make a somewhat wine smell

T - HInts of grape juice, a deep dry red, and a light amber beer offer together another unique dogfish experience

F - Excellent mouthfeel, a high carbonation, dry while strangely moist

O - Not a typical IPA, but this is expected of Dogfishhead. An excellent beer for those seeking a wine-beer crossover. I unique experience for a good fall beverage.

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!

I'm generally not a huge fan of IPAs, but I very much enjoyed this. It is unique.

The beer has a unique color with a ever so slight burgundy tint. While it's subtle, you can detect the scent from the grape must.

It tastes like a beer/wine hybrid, but certainly not in a bad way. There's a hint of wine with distinct hoppiness.

Good stuff.
