Pours a clear deep golden color with a white foam. Aroma of grapefruit and green tea. In the taste, grapefruit hops, pine and pineapple also are present. Soothing herb, tropical fruit, pale malts. Medium bodied brew with medium to low carbonation. Overall this is a clean, east does west coast IPA.

Pours a hazy orange-ish to yellow color with an off white head. In the aroma, mellow pine hops. In the taste, grapefruit rind hops and a lighter malt presence. A hop bite, with a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry grapefruity citrus rind hop like aftertaste. Mellow nose, but big hops in the flavor, I can dig it.

Served on tap at House of 1000 Beers, poured into a Piraat tulip.

Pours a pale yellow/gold, clear color with a thin white head. Little retention, but decent cling.

Smell is fairly complex. It's swee and hoppy while at the same time a organic/grain smelling. It's citric and grassy. There's even a bit of sweet flower aroma in there as well.

Taste is somewhat similar, with an emphasis on the citric hops. Less noticeable is te grass or vegetable and fruit aspect.

Mouthfeel is good, quite pulpy in aftertaste. It has a grapefruit rind character to it. Medium drinkability.

Overall, a very decent IPA. Glad I tried it. Cheers.

On Tap at House of 1000 Beers

A - Pours a slightly hazed gold color, about a finger of sudsy head, little lacing going on.
S - Really great aroma. Fresh lime juice, orange zest, fresh cut grass, and a nice hop dankness at the end.
T - Some lime rind, a little rye, nice light crystal malt, pungent grassy flavor.
M - Finishes with some intense bight, but still is palatable by all means.
O - This my first beer from Bullfrog, and a great introduction. I love the awesome lime smell and taste in this. I hope I start to see this in bottles out this way.

On-tap at the outstanding "West Reading Tavern", served in a Pint glass

A - clean with a very light hue - appeared like a highly-filtered Pilsner in the glass - three finger head that retained through the final quaff.

S - this is the highlight of this beer - I likely appeared to be huffing this as the super-clean pine and citrus notes burst from the glass before every sip

T - back-of-the-mouth bitterness. This leaves no doubt it's an IPA with a grapefruit-forwardness that slaps the tastebuds from start to finish

M - my least favorite aspect of this beer; the mouthfeel is very thin. It contradicts the intense hop flavor as it pulls away from the balance of what would otherwise be an exceptional beer.

O - the atmosphere for drinking this craft offering was perfect - sipping a cool brew at the West Reading Tavern gives way to a definite opportunity to fully "experience" each beer. That said, I wanted more body on this one - I appreciate what's happening with the hops, but somehow felt like I was drinking a standard american light lager that had been sent for a "hop" makeover.
