Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours light red with a small white head. Smells of citrus hops, not much else. Tastes of a little red wine with some citrus. Beer is light bodied and finishes clean. Overall a pretty good beer.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

This is like a sparkling wine with the body and sweetness profile of a malty beer. The color is what you'd get if you poured a couple ounces of dark red wine into a light amber beer. The aroma is more red wine than beer. It's not hoppy like the 'IPA' on the label would suggest and neither is the taste. It has some of the taste characteristics common among DFH beers and has a similar mouthfeel. It's an interesting beer for the sake of being different, but I'm not sure that crossing beer and wine works for me.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A-red amber color with a smallish off-white head and little lacing

S-earthy, red wine, hint of citrus, malt

T-red wine, light citrus, slight toasted malt, earthy, mild bitterness in the finish

F-medium body with moderate carbonation, crisp and slightly astringent

O-not sure what this beer was trying to be, red wine must too overpowering and just light beer character, interesting, but would probably not drink again
