Another concept beer from DFH, love what they do. This one might have started off as an IPA, but it certainly no longer tastes like one. The smell is almost entirely grapes, definitely a wine like character. Musty, not wine must. The first thing I taste is grape - definitely like a sparkling red wine when it opens. There is some hops through the middle and malt on the back, the usual progression I get with IPAs. More hoppy as it warms up. Hops are piney and a bit citrusy, it goes well with the grape. It leaves a sort of candy sweetness in the mouth that is excellent. Mouthfeel is medium - oily. The hops and especially the malt remain in the background, this one absorbed the grapes through and through. Good and a fun experience, but it won't become part of my regular rotation.
