look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Bottled version courtesy of AwYeh, thanks again.

Appears amber gold, with a foamy pure white head. Translucent and beautifully cloudy.

Smells clean, but kind of weak. Citrus hints are strong and a bit of sugar is evident, but it's less than expected. May have been due to drinking these outdoors on a mildly windy day.

Tastes of intense grapefruit juice and pulp - amazing. Only slightly bitter, the same way grapefruit is. Amazing balance with a bit of chalky rind at the end. Nice weedy hint as well.

Mouthfeel is clean as a whistle, and slightly carbonated without being harsh at all. 7.5% abv is accurately tasted and felt. Leaves mouth feeling fresh and only slightly sticky. Overall this is one of the easiest drinking IPAs I've had the pleasure of having. My favorite beers are arguably grapefruity IPAs, so this one will be remembered and sought after for a while.
