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

Appearance: reddish orange with pinkish hues in the light, somewhat like a rose wine, white diminishing head, good clarity

Aroma: caramel, floral hop bouquet, sweet and tart red grape aroma,

Taste: very subtle grape flavor during the drink but coming in strong on the finish to curb much of the bitterness of the 60 minute IPA hopping regime. The floral hops and grape must combine with the pale malt to create a caramely like flavor that makes the drink seem more beerish, but the grape must on the finish steers it more towards a wine taste. An interesting beer overall.

Mouthfeel: much like the 60 minute IPA, smooth, crisp, moderate carbonation

Overall: An interesting a delicious drink that was designed with wine drinkers in mind. Sliding gracefully between a beer and a wine in terms of flavor, aroma, and mouthfeel, the 61 is a must try, especially if you or someone you know doesn't like beer or prefers wine. I gave it to my mom, who hasn't drank beer in 25 years but loves wine, and she loves it!
