12oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Thanks Chris!

(A)- Pours a clear reddish ruby color. Some good white froth that dissipated quickly.

(S)- Very red wine grape juice centric with the ever so slight hint of some bitter pine.

(T)- Again, very red wine like with the very subtle citrus and pine.

(M)- A smooth and crisp carbonation level. Slightly sweet yet slightly bitter. Plenty of tannis that I think upped the bitterness level even higher.

(O)- An interesting take on their classic 60 minute. I appreciate the effort, but if I want an IPA, I would much rather have the regular over this. There is just not a ton going on and the wine masks everything I like about an IPA. This would be much better suited to be put under the Fruit/Vegetable beer section than IPA.

LOOK: Pours a ruby red color with a white head. Leaves some lace on the glass, but looks a bit like a wine cooler. To be expected since it is brewed with grapes.

SMELL: Pale malts, fruity wine, and some faint hops.

TASTE/FEEL: Tart wine notes are complimented by some earthy hops. Creamy maltyness lends some depth to the flavor. Earthy, winesque and somewhat dry. Medium bodied and sporting a high level of carbonation.

OVERALL: For a fruit beer, this is pretty good. By no means is this an IPA. It's more like a bittered wine cooler.

12 ounce bottle, Botled on 2-26-13

Pours ruby hued medium amber. Off white head, again with a ruby accent.

Nose is slightly floral, with hops in the rear.

Tasty IPA, 60 minutes hops in near full force, with a noticable floral/wine note adding to complexity. Interesting and different, I find the results of this experiment to be quite successful.

Worth a try, I expect this one to go along well with rustic, flavorfull BBQ in some summer warmth
