Had on tap at Sticks and Stones last night.Came to the table in a stemmed glass a clear copper color with a tight half finger head,sharp grapefruit rind and a little grassiness in the nose with a tinge of sweet alcohol.The sharp grapefruit comes thru bigtime on the palate as well with underlying grass and lightly sweet caramel malts,the grapefruit flavors are large and in charge.Not bad but it gets a little bitter by the end of a 12 oz. pour,it packs a hoppy punch. (469 characters)

Served at the brewpub in Asheville.

Pour was amber with excellent clarity and a good head.

Lots of hop aroma and flavor, with just mild bitterness. Addition of grapefruit zest seems to affect the aroma but has minimal affect on the flavor.
Exceptional fruity/hoppy aroma. (275 characters)

The nose is a nice burst of citrus fruits like oranges, tangerines, nectarines, grapefruit and lemon. There is a touch of herbal darkness in the aroma.

The flavor lends heavily on hops but strikes a great balance with the malt. The citrus is noticeable at first with grapefruit and oranges, maybe a touch of tangerines. Through the middle this gets a bit mote dank with a musty, musky swampy herbal tone. It finishes with a touch of lemon and a ill received chive. All the while the caramel malt simply holds up the back and feel. (531 characters)

On tap Common Market, Southend.

Great hoppy, citrusy smell. Taste is of grapefruit peel, but unlike Stone Grapefruit Slam, there is an awesome balance with the hops where you can actually taste something other than pithiness. Very solid brew, as usual from Wicked Weed. Love their stuff. (288 characters)
