Really awesome flavor. For whatever reason it reminded me of a pouch of those snack gummies, grape flavor of course.

12 oz bottle

Appearance is like a carbonated cranberry juice. No lacing. Very little head even on a vigorous pour.

Aroma is extremely complex. It almost smells of cotton candy. The grape must is clearly present! Definitely a fruit sweetness, with still a present hop aroma! Very unique!

This beer is not meant to be consumed cold. The flavors SUCK when overly chilled. It is perfect after sitting for a few minutes. When the beer finally warms, it is a nice balance between the hop bitterness and this cherry-ish ending sweetness. I get more cherry than grape (weird I know). It's balanced but instead of malt sweetness, it's the grape must instead.interesting....

I think this beer could stand up to a lot of different food pairings. I think it would go extremely well with salmon. It's not a beer that is absolutely amazing, nor one I would keep readily stashed. However, it's just so unique, that it's fun to try once in awhile. The beer is also a tad bit watery for my taste... Especially for an IPA.I give it an 83/100

Hands down one of the best beers. Complex yet drinkable.
