Hard to find a flavor. Hard to find a beer in here. Lacking taste. Would not revisit.

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Best by April 13th 2015.

A golden and slightly hazy and cloudy body, with a matching amount of very nice fine rising carbonation. A good bleach white and big four finger head caps it all off with good staying power, big swiss cheese bubbles and retention in the mix. A pretty solid looking IPA.

Aroma is as advertised. Lots of fleshy and fruit grapefruit notes, but more of a fruit sense than hop sense. Smells like grapefruit juice, but not much else to say going on, hard to even think there is a beer behind this somewhere, but real enjoyable, not overly sweet, zesty, oily, even juicy. Very solid.

Palate sort of turns the table. Juiced fruit grapefruit but without any hop character. Malt character is also non existent and I am struggling to say anything else here besides fruit juice. Slightly watery but not too much in feel, but manages to coat some of those oily characters on the finish, perhaps hinting at a taste or sense of hop presence.

Overall this comes off as a fruit flavored pale ale more than anything, but as an IPA it really seems to lack or hide it's character. Decent fruit beer though.

Picked this up at Vintage Estate in Ohio.

A - Head is just a 1/4 inch that settles rather quick. Beer has a ton of sediment telling me this beer is old well beyond fall status.
S - Really strong grapefruit and citrus notes. Slight malts and sweet smelling.
T - Very light hops, malt and grapefruit if anything it's past its prime. Still kind of refreshing.
M - Light to medium easy to drink despite the yeast chunks.

Overall I would have this again it's a very good take on an IPA but they could use different fruit if they wanted to.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is strong of grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit, light hops, a bit of malts, smooth and tasty. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

A surprisingly good fruity ipa. Close to the strawberry which I prefer in summer, this was good

I can see why reviews are mixed. Quite bitter but bc it's very grapefruity with some hop on top. Love it. Was great with salty oysters; brought out the sweetness of the grapefruit.
