4.15/5 rDev +4%
BBD 9/15/14. Clear medium amber pour with a very faint ruby tint. Excellent head, lacing and retention. Very nice nose of grapefruit and tropical (mango) with a touch of spice and pine over a very light biscuit. Medium bodied with a normal carbonation level that imparts a bit of effervescence on the finish. Nice balanced flavor profile with a bit of hop complexity in a blended fashion. It begins with the flavors of the nose then flows into a mild bitterness. The finish is dry, not quite crisp, and leaves you with a light grapefruit rind bitterness and a touch of spice.

3.74/5 rDev -6.3%
Pours a beautiful dark amber with a flurry of cascading bubbles and a one inch billowy foamy head. Leaves a slight amount of lacing along the glass. The smell -- grapefruit, grapefruit, grapefruit! Also subtle hints of mango in there. Really nice. Grapefruit is also the overwhelming quality of the taste. Nice level of carbonation. Really fresh tasting beer. I had one on 8/7 that had a Best Buy date of 8/17 and it felt like I was drinking this right at a brewery. Really solid IPA. For a 6.3% ABV, very easy to drink.
