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.

Intrigued by the label and pitch from a coworker made this my Friday after work beer of choice (which on principal should be stellar on principle alone.) Poured in a plum like color which initially caught me off guard but the aroma was bright and floral my initial comparison was that of my girls White Zin. That proved to be very much the case, crisp and flavorful with a very subtle hop. Honestly, not what I was looking for but a nice summer ale nonetheless. If your into White Zin than definitely try this beer.

Pours a clear orange tinted pink with one finger thick white head... spotty lacing though a decent layer of foam sticks around. Smell: caramel, diactyl, berry, vinous of course..no discernible hop aromas, whee! Taste: the base beer at least makes some appearance here, but it's muddled and... it could be anything buried beneath the buttered toast and watery, sweet, fruity wine...what a mess. Should have been a drainpour. Bottled late Feb.

12oz single, a rare DFH impulse buy.

Seemed like a cool concept, but of course not. DFH being abstract with seemingly no attention to creating a fine product. Seems like a real stark contrast to what i remember from 8-9 years ago. The syrah must imparts a pinkish hue to this IPA - the hop profile is weird, the wine isn't showcased the weigh it should be. It was fine, but just not what i was hoping for.
