There is nothing "Grapefruit" about this beer. I have given dewclaw too many chances... after this beer, I am convinced that i do not enjoy their brews. Leave this one in the case.

Bought a 6 pack, stamped as bottled on 5/9 then drank on 5/24.
Great example of a blonde ale. Fruity, hoppy and fresh, very refreshing. Easy to drink a few, perfect for the recent hot weather.
Highly recommended as a flavorful lighter summer beer. Will be seeking out more in the future.

Pours gold with minimal head and low carbonation. Taste is caramel malt, with light grapefruit middle and slightly more grapefruit juice at the end. Light lemon and a bit of nuttiness is also present. This is a well balanced beer with light bitterness that could use a bit more grapefruit. Still I could see myself drinking a bunch of this during the warmer months.

12 oz bottle poured into a Creature Comforts glass.

A: clear amber with a huge, fluffy white head that quickly went over the top of my 16 oz glass with only about 1/3 of the bottle poured. The head settled slowly and left nice lacing on the glass.

Aroma: a hoppy, earthy smell featuring hay and grapefruit. Too dank.

Flavor: More hops than malt, for sure, yet decent balance. Mildly bitter but high bitterness for style. Mildly dank and funky.

M: high carbonation; medium-light body. A bit of dryness in the finish.

Overall: Disappointing.

12oz bottle bottles 5/27/15, poured into a pint

A- pours a clear bright golden color with a one-finger foamy & sudsy head that retains nicely after the pour

S- moderate lemon & grapefruit zest up front, underlying pale malts adds some toasted notes and a bit of sweetness

T- clean and malty up front with some toasted grain followed by a bitter hit of sharp grapefruit zest and some lemony/grassy hop before finishing bone dry with a citrus linger

M- medium-light body with moderate spritz carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that quickly drops off to a clean dry finish

O- this beer has just enough grapefruit/lemon bitterness so that it doesn't overpower the subtle base beer. It's quick & dry finish raises the drinkability through the roof, this would be easy to tackle a 6pack on a summer day.
