3.25/5 rDev -16.5%
Appearance: Golden, clear; medium frothy head, long lasting
Aroma: Slight malt and bread; overwhelmingly grapefruit; candy sugar
Taste: Malty, hoppy bite on start; quickly moves to grapefruit notes in the mid; finishes hoppy and bitter on the end; lingering hops finish it out; pretty refreshing overall, but quickly tiring
Remarks: Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

Served in a pint glass - 12oz bottle
I came to the party a little late on this one, I've enjoyed Widmer Bros Rotator series, but somehow missed this release. I got my first 6-pack in November and found another on the shelves in late december....oh well
A - Golden color, with 1 finger head and decent lacing
S - It hits you with the citrusy smell of grapefruit right off the pour. My mouth started to water before I could get the glass to my mouth.
T - Nice upfront grapefruit, a little malt in the middle and some hop bite at the end. I loved reading about the brewing and the use of the grapefruit peels in the process. I was already a fan of the X-114, so throwing a little grapefruit in the mix only upped the level of enjoyment for me.
M - Good mouthfeel, I like the carbonation as well.
O - This is a favorite IPA for me. I hope it comes back again, not sure where the company is going with this rotator series, if they will continue to experiment, or keep putting out the same. I really hope Shaddock makes a return, one of my favorite IPA's I've had in awhile.
