Appearance - The beer was a golden copper color with a modest white head and lacing surrounding the sides of the glass.
Smell - As a whole, it smells like a regular IPA. I detect notes of fresh grapefruit, but not enough to tell me this IPA is much different than others.
Taste - At the initial taste, there is a faint tea-like sensation. Then, the grapefruit comes through. It starts with the bitterness of the rind before becoming progressively more sweet. In the aftertaste, the bitter resin sticks to the roof of the mouth. In some aspects, I think the finish is somewhat dry.
Mouthfeel - The taste clings to the mouth and tongue, so there is some thickness. The carbonation seems to be very appropriate.
Overall - This is a quality IPA, but I do not think it is exceptional. The grapefruit does not add a great deal of depth. Try it, just to say you had it. However, I do not think most drinkers will feel the need to stock up.
