Very Good
Grapefruit SupremeGrapefruit Supreme
Notes: Braced by bright grapefruit flavor and gentle tartness, this beer reigns supreme. Finishing crisp and citrusy, it sets a new standard for crushable.

4/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

From a 12oz can:

Appearance: slighty hazy yellow, not much head.

Smell: Tart, citric, grapefruit. Reminds me of the old soft drink called Teem.

Taste: Mild tartness, plenty of grapefruit flavor. Dry and easy drinking.

Overall: I'm not a big tart/sour beer fan, but this one really hit the mark with me. I suppose because it was on the mild side for tartness and the grapefruit reminded me of hoppy beer.

3.67/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a stange.

Pours a pale straw with a two finger head that recedes to a cap and eventually a ring. Quite cloudy and the cap leaves sticky rings.

Aroma is grapefruit up front, very powerful aroma with a slight crackery, dry malt backing.

Flavor is of light cracker malt and grapefruit. Citrus stringency leaves a drying affect on the mouth. Grapefruit flavors dominate and the dryness dominates everything. Very refreshing.

Mouthfeel is crisp and well attenuated.

Good summer quencher.

Aroma is grapefruit/soda, similar to a shandy. The flavor is grapefruit/lemon, malts, slightly oily texture and and a tart/dryish/mildly sweet finish.
