06/05/13 At Rattle N Hum, NYC, on tap. Grapefruit? Really? First impression tends in another direction. Lack of astringency for one. Taste is nice & refreshing & since I think grapefruit is way far away from the usual 'citrus' profile, I have to say this was a pleasant surprise. If it's hot outside, give this a try...you have a friend. Ilinois??...really?
