look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: The beer is very hazy yellowish amber in color and has some clumps of yeast visible floating near the bottom of the glass. It poured with an eighth of a finger high beige head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of bitter grapefruit are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is very bitter and has strong notes of grapefruit flavors. It reminds me a lot like drinking grapefruit juice.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: If you don't like the taste or bitterness of grapefruit juice, this is a beer that you probably won't enjoy. Otherwise it is nice and bitter and citrusy.
