I actually think this stuff is under-rated on here. I got a growler fill with it. Great look, reddish pink notes with completely white head. Nice drinkablility and body, the grape must flavor provides a nice tartness.

(12oz bottle) a strangely decent beer but not an IPA (kinda musty). Probably wont try again though.

Others:
60 minute IPA (favorable)
90 minute IPA (favorable)

My favourite IPA in the wee months of summer. Reminiscent of a warm sunset on a Tuesday.

Appearance - 3.75/5
A nice lighter red orange, a typical level of head, fairly clear, but some haziness. Carbonation seems about average.

Smell - 3.75/5
Grapes (beer brewed with Syrah grape must), light pine hoppiness. Slight sweetness to the aroma.

Taste - 4/5
Taste pretty similar to the smell. A good light pine hoppiness with a subtle yet very present grape flavor. The grape aspect reminds me of DFH's Midas Touch, though the grape flavor is different, and Midas Touch is much more grapey. I do really like the taste. It's not super bitter nor extremely hoppy, and the grape twist makes things interesting. Personally, I wish the grape was a little more pronounced, but besides that I have no big complaints about the taste. Very light level of sweetness.

Mouthfeel - 4.25/5
Very crisp, a medium-high amount of medium intensity carbonation. In between light and medium bodied.

Overall - 4/5
Overall this was a great IPA, especially for someone that isn't a super hop-head. If you like beers with grape flavors this is definitely a good one to try.

Pinkish amber with barely any head. Berries, piney hops, and cereal grain. I like the mixture of the grape with the grassy and piney hops. Not too crazy about the malt and yeast. Almost a vegetal quality. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with some prickly carbonation. Overall an interesting beer, but there's something about DFHs house taste that I can't get into.

Interesting how the wine and hop flavors play together. I'd agree with most of the reviews on here. Worth a try but not my favorite.

A: Clear ruby red color with large 1.5 inch white head with large bubbles that dissipate slowly, good lacing

S: Mostly red wine, Im thinking cabernet sauvignon, with some hops in the background

T: The red wine taste is the dominant player, I get a little malty sweetness and some hops but they are background flavors

M: Very interesting, your mind is thinking wine and you get the dryness but the carbonation of beer.

O: Good beer. This is a very nice pairing of two classic drinks. I am eager to explore the food pairings with this one.
