4.29/5  rDev +11.7%

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!

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.

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.

On tap at Bull and Bush (obviously). Yellow color, looks fine. Aroma is grapefruit and malts. The flavor is strong grapefruit and cereal. Almost reminds me of fruity pebbles cereal. Not a bad beer but the cereal flavor is sort of weird to me. I do appreciate brewers making low alcohol beers though.

loved this, you always read "grapefruit notes" in hop profiles, but no, this is actually made with grapefruit, hence GPA. pours an unassuming clear iced tea color, and had a very small head. the smell is also not too intense, some acidic or bitter fruit tones, and a decent bit of hops, but nothing overpowering in the grapefruit department. then the first sip, hoppy american pale ale at first, smooth mouth feel, nice carbonation, mmm, but wait, whats this? holy cow! its a ruby red grapefruit, tart and tickly, lightning quick finish. boom. its such a trip this beer, majorly refreshing and infinitely drinkable with its lighter mouthfeel and quenching conclusion. overall a great treat from b and b, if a little odd seasonally. a must try., and one your lady might like too.
