Compared to the other Hop Valley offerings this one has to be the worst. I love the IPA's with the grapefruit taste (see Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin) but this does not taste like grapefruit....it's just kind of nasty and acrid tasting . This is from multiple tastings the latest of which is extremely fresh (2 weeks from bottling) and purchased in a variety 12 pack including 3 other excellent beers, Alphadelic, Alpha Centauri and Cryo Stash. I've been through 3 of these 12 packs recently and this is the one I leave until the last and then just drink it because it's there :^ /

Didn’t get a tremendous amount of citrus off this one - maybe some red grapefruit, but otherwise it is a pretty alpha-forward PNW style IPA. Not bad but lacks stand-out notes

Clean, crisp, very citrus, very hoppy. Third favorite after Space Dust and Fresh Squeezed.

Clear deep gold with three fingers of off white head. Rings of lace.
Smell is citrus grapefruit with some biscuit malt.
Taste is citrus grapefruit hops with some resinous qualities. The malts lend good support without covering the hop flavors.
Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. The finish is dry and bitter.
Overall a tasty fruity West Coast IPA. Well done Hop Valley!

Tasted in a pint glass from draft at Katie Downs Tavern & Eatery on July 31, 2018. Munich malt, four different hops and grapefruit peel combine to create this IPA. Features a classic burnt orange color with a bouquet of citrus, peach and tropical fruits.
