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.

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, golden coloring, with a filmy, clingy, white head. Nose of resinous hops, pine pitch, and subtle caramel in the backbone. Flavors are resinous and grapefruit forward, with a caramel backbone, and a growing bitterness as you go. Smooth and dry in mouth, with a resinous and citrus aftertaste. Smooth, clean finish. Very nice, very balanced, very drinkable beer.

This was a good beer. It was on the darker side in color, good head retention and a wonderful floral, spicy, and tropical fruit bouquet aroma. The taste was much the same. I truly enjoyed this beer, as I have most of this brewery's beers. Apparently the "sour" beers are all the rage with these guys, I need to give that one another chance. But for now the IPA's and APA's I have tried have been top notch. Happy that this brewery is in my neck of the woods so to speak.

@ Ridgewood

Mostly clear deep, coppery orange color under a big, frothy off-white head. Chunky patches of lacing. Aroma comes across as hoppy with a decent grainy sweetness beneath...nice, but not a very "deep" smelling beer. Citrus zest, spicy hops, earthy pine, toast, and just a hint of perfumy grapefruit here and there. Flavor is bitter citrus and leafy hops. A fresh, but not in-your-face grapefruit juice finish. Crisp, medium bodied, with some texture. Nothing memorable, but a decent beer overall.

Tulip at Ridgewood in Raleigh

A: A little darker than your standard IPA with sticky lacing. One-half inch white foam head on pour.

S: Musky fruit - ripe sweet citrus, grapefruit nose. Smells like candy.

T: Fruity hoppy mess with a mild malting backbone. I've seen the comparisons to Stochasticity and this is clearly better balanced than the Stone version. Lingering ripe grapefruit / rind finish.

M: Nothing to complain about here. Appropriate viscosity and and smoothness for a single IPA.

O: Not something I would seek out, but this seems to be a nice one-off sampling beer unless you are really a sucker for the grapefruit.
