4.1/5 rDev +13.3%
A relief from the common IPA.
Mouthfeel is perfect. Does not have the malt stickiness of most IPAs.
Appearance is dark brown, with a hint of purple from the grapes.
Hops are present, but subdued by the addition of the grapes.
While this is sort of a fusion style, to say the least, I think it's my new go-to when I want an IPA. I'm exhausted by the sticky malts and the boring additions to the style lately.
This is great.

3.53/5 rDev -2.5%
Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a deep bronze color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of mild hops, a bit of grapes. Taste is a bit different, the hops are kind of muted a bit, some grape flavor, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, while a bit different for this style, is a pretty good beer.

4.28/5 rDev +18.2%
A) Pours with a big two finger head - tight, creamy and settles slowly. Mostly clear bronze colored body with some ruby hues.
S) Fragrant citrus and floral notes. Hints of rose, peach and caramel.
T) Well balanced IPA - strong malt backbone, good hop bite and the touch of grapes. Nice slightly tart finish.
M) Crisp, yet creamy. Medium body. Subtle wine-like finish - tannins.
O) Delicious! I would definitely drink another one.

(Served in a teku)
A- This beer pours a ruby-red hue to a copper brown body that is slightly dense and a head of big bubbles which fades to a thick ring of off-white.
S- The hint of mellow red wine tannin and green woody hops blends softly.
T- the nice woody green hops leads to a mellow red wine flavor with some dry jammy characters coming through as the beer opens. The finish is pretty dry itself.
M- The light mouthfeel has a crisp little fizz in the finish and no alcohol heat.
O- The nice balance of of hops and grapes make this unique beer very drinkable. This could be a good session beer.
