12 oz bottle poured from a pint glass.

A: Poured a dark golden color with a good fingers worth of head that settles to a ring with spotty lacing from start to finish.

S: I'm getting some light floral hop, a burst of grapefruit and a little sweet malt at the end.

T: Pretty normal IPA, hops are the biggest thing you taste...with a little sweet malt.... Then the wonderful sweet/bitter grapefruit kicks in.. Great balance with a lightly bitter aftertaste.

M: Light to mid bodied with a nice crisp carbonation. Little lighter than most IPA's I'm had.

O: OK... I'm not a big IPA guy but I have to say I really like this one... Good ABV makes this on a good session beer. Worth looking for.

A: poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, golden colored with a nice white head that lingers leaving some lacing, slight haze

S: very much grapefruit with a little fruity hops, slightly sweet

T: taste is of ruby red grapefruit up front, noticeable but not powerful, fades to a bitter hop flavor of grapefruit peel, hop flavor is one dimensional, finish has more red grapefruit flavor

M: lighter to medium body, good carbonation

O: I really like the flavor of this beer. The grapefruit is there but not overpowering. It would have been better though with more layers of hop flavors.

12 oz bottle pours a hazed gold color with an ample cap of white head. Retention is ok, but lacing is awesome.

Nose is straight up grapefruit rinds. Wow, smells just like a fresh cut grapefruit with a little sugar drizzled on top.

Taste is citric, medium bitterness and light biscuity malt. All the flavors come together quite nicely here, I am digging this Abita Harvest release. Smooth and easy to drink. It is not overly bitter or hop flavored for that matter, but the grapefruit really shines. Unique and thirst-quenching. I will buy more of this for sure.

Appearance: Expected some haze given this is a fruit beer, but it has good clarity, holds a bright white head of foam.

Smell: Grapefruit. Nice, just as it should be. Overpowers most other beer flavors, but it smells great!

Taste: Again, grapefruit, juicy, bit of peel, the base beer is pretty bland, not a lot of hop punch but a lot of bitterness from the grapefruit makes it a good package.

Mouthfeel: Light body, good carbonation level didn't go fizzy. A little more heft here would have helped, again, a light base beer.

Overall: Very happy I got the 6 pack, will be enjoying.
