An unusual brew for sure...

This is more red wine than IPA to me but its still different enough to be interesting...

Sort of a novelty, I guess... I wish the hops were a little more pronounced with the wine playing backup but that's not the case here...

Not sure I could drink more than a couple without this getting sort of old but... still a nice brew

Wow! I was not ready for the color of this one. It pours; what I can only describe as, a purple amber hue with one of the stark whitest heads I've seen. It leaves a very decent amount of foamy lacing. The aroma is a fruity, sweet and bitter blend of semi dry red wine, citrus hops, caramel malts, bready yeast, and a faint hint of wine alcohol. It is quite a delicious blend and the best thing about this beer. The mouth is light to medium bodied; a little thinner than I would have expected. The flavor follows the nose but slightly subtler. It really tastes like a bottle of sixty minute and semi dry red wine. I don't think that this should work but somehow it does. Nice work Dogfish Head. Keep pushing the limits.
