look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass

A- pours a clear reddish purple with orange tints, looks a little like watered down red wine, a one finger pinkish foamy head appears on the pour and slowly dissipates down to a covering, solid lacing

S- slightly malty, some light grassy notes, the grape must is pretty forward on the nose, pretty much all i'm getting

T- slightly bitter and hoppy at the start, quickly moves into puckering grape notes, finishes clean with significant bready aftertaste, a little grapefruit rind mixes in with the aftertaste as well

M- medium body, slightly high carbonation but nothing distracting, finishes clean and dry

O- this was an interesting beer, there were IPA qualities but the grape must almost pushed this into a herbed/spiced beer for me, i wouldn't make a point to go buy this again but i'd drink it if it was around

Pours a garnet hue with a bubbly head which is as white as sugar. Not much head retention or lacing. There's a slight haze and light can definitely pass through the glass. No sediment. The n nose on this one is very herbal with citrus fruit esters as well. There's a light hop taste similar to that of their 60-minute IPA. The mouth feel is initially soft, however for the finish a hard bitterness comes in with a huge punch of wine grapes. Overall, this is a very interesting experiment as usual for DFH, and I would call it a success. I would order this again, and also if you like this, try their 'Noble Rot.'

Pours a hazy rosey color. Sort of a dirty purple. No, more of a golden color with a purple haze.

The aroma is of a doughy malt. Strong musty grape. Smells old but it's not. Fruity.

Big grape flavor. Quite musty and rich. Tastes like an old IPA but its not. It is a 60 minute with the grape addition. The grassy hops come thru but then then the grapes come thru. I like it but I don't like the old mustiness. I get it but it more or less comes off like old malt.

The feel is moderate with weak carbonation. Fruity sweet with a grassy offset.

Tastes like an old IPA but its not. I like the grape addition but is better served in a different beer

Had at Paradise by the slice served in the bottle.
I poured this into a glass, it has a hazy purple (red wine look) with a small white head to it. The aroma has a hint of grapes and hops to it. the taste is just like 60 minute but with grapes. the mouthfeel was very good, and overall a really good beer.
I'm not use to this beer and wine mixed yet, but i do like it and can't wait to try other ones.
