Abita Grapefruit Harvest has a thick, soapy, off-white head, a somewhat hazy, yellow-golden appearance, some bubble streams, and good lacing left behind. The aroma is very fruiting, which becomes even more pronounced as the beer warms. White bread is also picked up. The taste is pretty much grapefruit, bitterness, tap water, and white bread. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Abita Grapefruit Harvest finishes mostly dry, drinkable, and mellow. I like it, even though it's not a style for me.

Had this with a flight of beers. Pours golden with off-white head that lingers well in taster glass.

Smell is malts and grapefruit.

Taste is malty with lots of almost artificial grapefruit that lingers well. Bitterness is subdued.

Mouthfeel is light bodied. Good carbonation.

Overall this just seemed like a fake IPA to me. Lots of citrus but not hoppy citrus. My wife kept describing this as a gateway beer to IPAs
