Pours a hazy ruby color which is quite reminiscent of a dark rose wine. The half finger of white head dissipates quickly. Sour wine notes co-exists along with hops in the nose. The flavor profile also seems like a hybrid between a beer and a wine. This offering is light and refreshing with a dry mild bitterness on the finish.

In the days of everything remotely hoppy being misclassified as an “IPA,” perhaps we should consider this a “GIPA – Gose IPA.”

12 oz bottle into pint glass

A- Purple! Like a grape G2. Never seen a purple beer before.
S- I don't get much aroma. A bit of slight sweetness from the grape skins.
T- Taste is intersting for sure. Somehow the grapes with the hops and malt make almost a white wine taste.
M- Mouth feel is just fine. Light and crisp.

O- Intersting brew. The color is the coolest part of this beer. The fact that it ends up tasting like a sweet white wine is ok, but not amazing.

12oz. bottle into Tired Hands stemware.

Pours a light pink-purple frothy head with decent retention. Beer is a stunning, clear dark purple. Lacing is stringy and spotty with good stick. Really unique given the style. I'd expect nothing less from DFH.

Nose is candied grape, gummy, cane sugar and just the slightest bit of tropical hope bite. Really sweet and sugary.

Opens slightly tart grape skin and lime. Hints of pineapple, more grape and a tropical hope bitterness in the middle. Finishes grape skin, a slight bit of booze, and the mellow, hop bitterness. Same aftertaste. Ok.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down aggressive and slightly dry. Dry finish with a filmy, resiny aftertaste. Solid.

This beer is great on the presentation but a bit shallow on substance. The grape addition doesn't work well with the tropical hop presence and it all ends up being a bit confused. Unique for sure though.
