Pretty good beer. Not picking up much more than grapefruit tho.

Bottle says best by 05/03/15

Look: Terrible, when I finished pouring, it looked like a snow globe because of all the sediment floating in it. The other bottles have a 1/4 inch of crap at the bottom, and I don't see anything about this being bottle conditioned. This must have been a bad batch. The lacing is spot on though.
Smell: So much grapefruit, and I love grapefruit. A little hop smell, but nothing else distinguishable.
Flavor: Not that exciting. I can taste the grapefruit, but the IPA flavor is distant.

A hint of pink grapefruit in the aroma but nothing in the taste. It tastes like a normal IPA minus the extra hops. I guess they didn't want this to taste like a fruit beer. Personally I would have liked the extra grapefruit taste.

nice golden color. Head is average and lacing ok. Aroma is of fresh grapefruit, I like it !!!. Taste is also nice, with fresh grapefruit with a back of semi-bitter hops. Nicely balanced, a simple beer, and I think it is very good.....

Poured forma bottle into a pint

A. A golden color quite hazy and a bit of sediment. Small white head the disappears quickly.

S. Slight aroma or grapefruit and pine. Oddly I get a little yeast smell like a belgian.

T. More grapefruit coming through here. But would still like a lil more. Not much hop character. Slight pine. Grassy aftertatste. Light.

M. Light body. Light carbonation. Finishes mostly clean.

O. Was hoping for more. Not a very exciting beer. Not terrible. Prob be good for seafood cooking. Or even drinking with a white fish. Nothing special though. Wouldn't go out of my way to buy. Wouldn't turn it down if offered to me.

Golden to amber in color with some haziness. You can see some minuscule sediment within the body. There's a fingernail of bright white around the rim and covering the majority of the top. Light Brussels lacing. Muted citrus hop aroma is rather acidic. The flavor is very strong with grapefruit and perhaps some copper like malt towards the back of the palate. The mouth is heavily carbonated and acidic.

I really expected so much more. While it was still good, it did not live up to the expectations I had. Not much grapefruit flavor, or a ton of hops for that matter. It was very drinkable, but I really wanted more grapefruit punch.

Probably would not seek out but would possibly purchase again.

I don't even like grapefruit that much, but the flavor works excellently in an IPA. Refreshing, and not too heavy.
