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

a: This was an odd light pink tinted gold color. It poured with a small fizzy cap.

s: Mostly straight up 60 minute; piny hops with some citrus and plenty of caramel. But I think someone used my glass for grape juice and didn't wash it.

t: Odd but good. But odd. This is basically 60 minute, but with a fairly subdued grape flavor that works pretty well with the base IPA. Sort of.

m: Sticky and slick.

o: I like it. Yeah I'm pretty sure I do. I don't think I'd buy it again though.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is an amber-tinted copper coloring with a thin, sparse, filmy white surface coating. Literally looks like 60 Minute with a drop of red coloring in it. Aromas of subtle grape sweetness and tang, with a solid biscuit backbone and hints of hops at the end. Flavors of tangy sweet, wine-like characters initially. Almost like a muscato or even wine spritzer, where it has hints of dryness and terroir, but the sweetness is amplified. Solid, balanced backbone of hops bitterness and biscuit, both toasty and bready. Very balanced and dynamic brew. The beer has a dry sweetness in the aftertaste, with a slick, dry finish. Light, smooth bodied in mouth. If you didn't know from the packaging, you wouldn't relate this to the 60 Minute IPA at all. It is a stand alone brew, and deservingly so. Very unique, tasty brew.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours out a clear reddish pink color. Sort of like a red ale with a pinkish hue. There was a thin layer off white head. Again, with a pinkish hue.

S: Dank pine, grape and some spicy scents.

T: Similar to the smell.

M: Medium body that is a little creamy. Carbonation is microbubbles, sort of like champagne but not so harsh.

O: I feel like it was a good idea but could've been executed way better. The hop flavor, whether it be lacking the correct hops, or getting outshined by grapes was not what I was looking for. A nice citrus and fruity hop profile would've made this one much better.

3.53/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a clear reddish hue with a finger of pink-tinted white head that fades into a frothy ring with little lacing.

S: Sweet citrus notes up front with pineapple and tangerines. Grape aromas follow with a bit of muskiness. There are also notes of fermented fruits.

T: Some citrus notes here as well along with a little tartness. Musky grape and wine-like flavors make up most of the profile with a slightly bitter finish.

M: Medium-light body with medium carbonation, this beer is light and sudsy feeling.

O: An interesting beer overall. Very unique, and while some aspects of it are a little odd, none of them is offensive and the result is an interesting, drinkable IPA.
