12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, cloudy, deep, dark amber color with reddish highlights and a quarter of a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Nice aromas of malt, piney hops, and earthy, musty, slightly sweet, slightly vinegary (in a good way) fruit. Interesting aromas.

Taste: Wow! Delicious! Strong flavors in equal amounts of toasted malt and piney, slightly bitter hops up front, followed by caramel-like sweetness, grape-like fruity sweetness and sourness. I really like it!

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and very effervescent as there is quite a bit of carbonation. With an ABV of 6.5%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a great, no, fantastic beer! I don’t like IPAs, as I find them too hoppy, too bitter for my taste. However, this IPA I really, really like. No, I love it! The addition of the Syrah grape must, which adds some very nice, fruity, sweet/lightly sour flavors really balances out the piney, bitter hops. Delicious!

A - 4. A nice auburn
S - 3.25
T - 3.25 - the grape zest gives it an aftertaste that is more bitter wine than bitter hops
MF - 3.75
O - 3.5
