Not a pleasant beer too look at, very cloudy but a nice white head. Very citrus grapefruit aroma, starts off with a smooth taste and has a very bitter after taste. Great for anyone looking for that beautiful grapefruit bitter taste. My only wish was the taste was as delicious up front as it is with the aftertaste.

Fruity aroma kind of like peach.Lots of settlement in bottle before pouring. Label says unfiltered and unpasterized. Initial taste bright slightly fruity but not sweet and a little earthy. Carbonation a little higher than average.Smooth hoppy flavor with slight bitter aftertaste.

Substantial sediment; pungent grapefruit aroma; resinous, malty arrival, malty and tart; hefty mouthfeel. Not so refreshing, bottle maybe past it's prime (no date) bought 8/15, reviewed 9/1/14.

This was a good beer. Super hoppy with great hop aroma. The taste was also that of a hopped up IPA. The fact it is unfiltered showed a lot of hop residue inside the floating around the glass. It is stingy and has a big bite. The bitter factor played a role for me. The alcohol is definitely detectable. It is a strong beer and has a strong taste. Good beer for an IPA lover.
