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.

A- Light purple. Big pillowy head that dies to a nice rim around the glass. Lots of lacing clings to the glass.

S- Lots of red grape and oily hops. Earthy and tart. Sweet. But it's clean smelling at the same time.

T- Again, it's like the nose. Very tart from the syrah grapes. Big upfront hop bitterness. Its citrusy and piney in nature. Theres also a slight salty quality as well and a faint sour note towards the finish.

M- The mouthfeel is medium to full on the mediun side. Its very crisp tasting. Again, the finish is somewhat sour and salty until the sweetness changes over to a drying quality.

Overall this is a very unique IPA. I'd be careful with this one if you've never had an IPA before. It's much different than the 60 or 90 Minute IPA.
