Snow White frosting over vodka-cran colored beer with cirrus drifts. Cartoon stubble lacing. Raspberry, blackberry, grape-y with blood orange, dried orange, red grapefruit, hibiscus and citrus crowd. Lovely entry, reminiscent of bandol rose, with a suggestion of pink lemonade, bay, orange pith, lemongrass, and cardamom. Dry and satisfying in all respects. Carrots and cran-mint come to mind. Festive and bright!! #dogfishhead #dogfishheadbrewing #dogfishheadsixtyone #beer #bier #biere #birra #ale #ipa #syrahipa #continuallyhopped #hops

I can see this being an IPA for people who don't like IPA. Very unlike the 60 minute in taste. Less astringent/piney. Must be the Syrah?

Not a Hop head, but this was balanced and interesting.

It's (sorta) got wine in it. That counts, right? Anyway, my hands down favorite from Dogfish. Bitter with a sour finish.

It was a perfect pairing for BBQ chicken and pasta salad.

More enjoyable to me than viniferous, this is Syrah based rather than Riesling
