I think I like this better than plain old 60-minutes...

The beer pours a reddish color akin to something like a strawberry or cherry soda, but there is nothing truly sweet about this beer. The head has some staying power and there is good lacing down the glass. The odor had a twinge of raspberry that didn't quite blend well in my nose with the strong hoppy character. Mouthfeel was surprisingly medium-bodied, had a slight creamy texture to it even though it was heavily carbonated. I did enjoy the taste - raspberries, strong hops, it worked better as a fluid. This is definitely a good, solid beer.

Had on-tap at the Main Street Pub in Bally. Poured into a goblet

L: Clear rose colored pour. 1 finger of white head. Solid lacing.

S: Muted hops... mild citrus... red wine/grape must.

T/F: Not a lot here. Smelled solid... but the hops were quite muted. Light citrus and a bit of pine. Not overly bitter... more tart. Some oak character, grape must, and some red wine notes. Light in body. Tasted almost watered down.

O: Dogfish Head does some great beers. This wasn't one of them. An interesting idea but just didn't work for me. Sort of a tart dull IPA. Looks/smells interesting. Not much to drink and wouldn't be interested in revisiting.

12oz bottled 9/29/17 poured into a DFH branded teku glass at fridge temp 6.5% ABV. The beer pours bright red tinted amber with rose tinted head. The head recedes to a thin ring and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is part grape, part citrus hops. It's pleasant, but not very strong. The taste is very wine-like with a barely tart grape note up front, transitioning to a hopped dry red wine finish. Mouthfeel is medium to thin bodied, sharply carbonated, and dry with the exclusion of some hop oil. There is a lasting IPA bitterness after swallowing. Overall, unique and enjoyable.

Poured deep clear dark cherry, mild head with plenty of lacing.

Scents are musty, apple, grape juice. Smells very artificial.

Some malt upfront which quickly gives way to a tart juice bomb with a short dry finish. A bit of a mess, and loses much beer identity. medicinal, spicy.

Beautiful to look at, less so to taste.
