3.64/5  rDev +4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Best By: 05/05/14.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, deep yellow body with an inch of dissipating, white foam. Only a few, lone dots of lace.

Smell: Citrus-scented hops combined with the Ruby Red additions, atop pilsener malts, a little pale, and thin, crustless breadiness.

Taste: Slimly bready blend of pale, pils malts with already from the get-go a strong kick of grapefruit flavoring. Citrusy hops accented by the Ruby Red additive. Juicy and fruity as the sweetness slowly recedes as you head into the crispish finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: A restrained India Pale Ale dosed with some rousing grapefruit fruitiness. I liked it more than I had anticipated.

The Abita Grapefruit Harvest is a nice beer. The appearance was docked because its lack of lacing. It poured clear (I made sure no sediment made it to my glass) with thin white head....not lace. The scent carried a fresh hop with bitter citrus flare. The taste carries grapefruit but it is very well balanced with sweet malt. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a good beer and I would drink it again.

After disliking Abita's Purple Haze with raspberries and absolutely hating their Strawberry Harvest Lager, I was hesitant to try another fruit beer from the brewery, especially at my neighborhood bar where it was going for $7/tulip glass.

I was pleasantly surprised by this IPA. If you enjoy citrus-y IPAs and Mosaic and Citra hops, you'll probably like this. The flavour and aroma reminded me more of hops than of fruit additives, which in my opinion is a good thing. Excellent aroma, excellent flavour, lovely mouthfeel, nice and dry with the right amount of carbonation.

I'm looking forward to finding this in 6-packs or on tap for less than seven bucks. I could get through a lot of this during the summer.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a fresh bottle into a shaker. White foamy head, dissipated quickly. Some light lacking throughout drink. Cloudy yellow orange sunshine in a glass.

The nose? Surprise...grapefruit! Add a hint of bread and a little green pine.

Above average carbonation, slightly watery on the mouth. Prominently bitter grapefruit, some orange and lemon peel with a touch of sweet honey. The finish is quick and clean, slightly bitter with a dash of pepper.

Not bad...not great...good. My wife loves this stuff...I figure it's a great way to get her into IPAs? It has all the basics, citrus, pine, hoppy, bready, bitter...so many good IPAs out there, I probably wouldn't buy for myself but I wouldn't turn one down at a party. Cheers!
