look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a growler into a pub glass.
Appearance - a clear gold with a thin, foamy white head. Lacing is fairly weak.
Smell - grapefruit (surprise!) and citrus juice, fantastic!
Taste - Smooth and refreshing taste,and at 4%, I could drink all day!
Feel - light and fairly carbonated. A hint of bitterness from the hops.
Overall - a really good beer that you could share with the wife and score some brownie points! Think a very sessionable IPA! Will most definitely have again! (480 characters)

Served cold in a pint glass.

4.0 G.P.A. (Grapefruit Pale Ale) is a hazy golden yellow color with considerable haze.

Aroma is strong in grapefruit but not totally from hops. I think this beer had some actual fruit added.

Flavor is also big on grapefruit but somehow manages to not be tart. Good balance and nice depth of flavor. A very solid pale ale.

Mouthfeel is medium-light in body and nicely carbonated.

Another excellent Bull & Bush beer. I'm just bummed the kitchen isn't open. (488 characters)

Smothered grapefruit and yeast on the nose and taste. Very light, pleasant grapefruit notes for a summer pale. (111 characters)

Clear gold pour with thick tight white head. Floral nose. Slightly clovey rose petal flavors with a little grapefruit on the finish. Lite mouthfeel with a tiny bit of hop tongue coating - still, crisp. Overall good, I liked the subdued hop/grapefruit in the linger. (265 characters)

A bit thin in appearance. Tons of orange and light yellow. Foamy/soapy head. Nothing remarkable.

Holy grapefruit nose! Very true to name. I'm not too big on grapefruit, but the aroma is very crisp, clean, and true.

Very light, wet, bright, and drinkable. Bitterness is much lighter than expected from aroma. Flavors are thin yet quite refined. Quaffable. Carbonation is too high...

I'm not a huge Sessionable IPA guy, but this is still a nice even crisp, solid brew. B&B done well, again. Perfect IPA Starter. (515 characters)

Bottle info: BTL:8/6/14 with North Eolus 14,039' underneath the bottle cap.

Light gold colored body topped with a frothy, lasting, white head; lots of slowly rising, fine carbonation bubbles. Decent, balanced aroma of malt and citrus/grapefruit scented hops; mild orange scent. Fine bread crust and biscuit malt flavors with a juicy, citrus like hop flavor with a soothing bitterness. Medium bodied; clean and dry finish.

A very satisfying, mild mannered beer. Subtlety and finesse with a light touch sum up the qualities of this beer. And the more you drink this particular beer, the more obvious its grapefruit-like qualities which don't overwhelm anything and add a nice, distinctive touch to the beer. Mix in a low ABV and you have a fine, warm weather, sessionable ale. (776 characters)
