Taste: Refreshing fruity, semi sweet blackberry, juicy thirst quencher, with clean finish. Wild berry and malt nose. Reddish/Purple hue, clear with a tall pinkish foam head and ringed lace. Not overly hoppy, a bit candy fruit. 35 IBUs

Pours dark red. Foamy, medium, pink head fades fast.

Smells tart blackberry, citrus and candy fruit.

Tastes sweet blackberry, light lemon and candied fruit. Finish is semi sweet with light citrus bitterness. Lighter medium body and fizzy medium carbonation

Poured from 12oz can into Spiegelau IPA glass. No date but I believe this is older than suggested for consumption.

L: Pours a really beautiful rose water color, light red hued with a touch of orange, and a very light pink head of about a finger. Head has average retention but laces very well. Really a beautiful beer and the head is somewhat lacking in retention for the style but this is also an older can.

S: Very rich blackberry note right off the bat, with some underlying ripe fruit in there as well. Not overly strong, but mouthwatering and inviting.

T: Again, rich blackberry right away, almost some ripe grape underneath with that underlying fruit. Not bitter at all, very sweet and this could be considered a fruit beer to me. Very tasty. Not complex but quaffable.

F: Light, crisp, lingering fruity sweetness.

O: Really a nice beer, definitely not complex but the unique flavor and attractive color help this beer a lot.

Pours a pretty ruby red with an appealing but quickly dissipating head. Does not really taste like beer. Sickeningly sweet and syupy. The tartness is pretty nice but there's no sense of this being an IPA really.

for all the fruited ipa out there, i havent seen any with blackberry, so this is somewhat exciting, and a cool shift away from citrus. the beer is pretty good, but not better than any of the other perrin cans, they are solid beers but they have been a step below the stuff they barrel age and bottle. this is pretty blackberry heavy, juicy and tangy without being too sweet, and more importantly not interfering too much with this being an ipa. the hops still come through clear, citrusy, and very bitter, especially in the finish. the berries and the hops are a surprising but fantastic combination, the right kind of hops and the right amount of blackberries, i didnt expect this to taste so good. honestly, its the feel that throws me a little. its thin and super carbonated, almost feels more like a soda pop than a beer as a result, a fluffier, bigger feel would help this beer, but i do like all the carbonation keeping the fruit from getting too sweet. i think its as natural a fusion as their grapefruit ipa, and something a bit different. good use of the blackberries, they dont lose their identity, and i like it being so bitter later on. cool beer, an easy can to drink a few of.
