355ml bottle as a gift from Virginia:
Bright amber boardering on orange to red with a 0.5cm foamy, white head. Slightly cloudy with little movement throughout.

Starts like a typical IPA with citrus & pine with a nice balance & nothing too strong. Some floral notes & sweetness come through next. The grapes start to come early on with various fruits, sweetness & malts following not far behind. The hop bitterness is quite subtle & some wine -like notes round things off.

Citrus & pine but it's lighter than the nose. Some white grapes & a slightly acidic taste that is reminiscent of white wine come next before sweetness & malts come through with hints of tropical fruits as well.

Smooth with more carbonation than I was expecting, maybe just past medium with a nice tang to it with hints of spice too. Some sweetness appears with a hint of alcohol towards the end.

Quite a good effort from Dogfish Head & on its own a really nice beer but when it follows on from the previous two from the brewery that I've tried it has to be said that this one definitely wasn't their best.
