It's all grapefruit all the time! Good, though. Handsome clear amber brew with fine-grained foam. It's a little bitter with citrus peel, actually it tastes exactly like grapefruit peel in the aftertaste. And smells like grapefruit with a hint of something herbal and possibly hoppy. Plenty drinkable and very fruity. Quite bitter finish goes on and on, just like... you get the idea. From the 16 oz can purchased at IGA market.

L- Pours a deep golden hue topped by a healthy two-finger white head.

S- Strong grapefruit aroma, very similar to that of a radler! Not much else going on in the nose, very grapefruit dominant.

T- Again, very grapefruit dominant but there is a mix of other bitter notes that I assume come from the hop bill, although particular flavours can't really be discerned. A little bit of sweet malt can be detected.

F- medium-full body with light carbonation.

O- A little bit *too* much grapefruit in my mind but the can doesn't lie! Lots of "pamplemousse" flavour to be found in this one. What I will say is that this brew is extremely refreshing and is a candidate for the perfect patio beer.

Look: Orange-gold color, slightly hazy. Thin head that reduces after a minute to a light skiff that almost completely covers the surface.
Smell: Grapefruit dominates. Swirling the glass makes the grapefruit fresher. Slight yeast.
Taste: Medium-light malt. Nice blend of medium-strong bitters - can't tell which are coming from hops and which from the grapefruit. The grapefruit shows up at the start and carries through to the aftertaste. Overall flavor is very strong, and the bitter grapefruit aftertaste lasts for several minutes.
Feel: Rather prickly on the tongue. Quickly forms a foam which turns into larger bubbles.
Overall: The base is an average IPA. The grapefruit blends well with the beer. The flavors are strong enough that this can be mixed with Sanpellegrino Pompelmo to make an extreme grapefruit radler.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Hazy and cloudy pale golden color with poor activity. Slightly creamy and bubbly light beige 2 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with good legs but mediocre swirl reaction. Flavors of grapefruits, pineapples, sweet barley, caramel, coriander, and herbal hops. Slick and soft creamy medium to full body with prickly carbonation. Strong strength finish, tongue coating grains, zesty fruits and leafy hops. Too much maillard effect with a powerful grainy profile similar to a pale ale, so it feels like an APA cross IPA. Looks like the grapefruits were added after the brewing, very clean cut fruity feel, so you can almost say it's a fruit beer. Passable freshness, quite intense for a single IPA and ABV. Overall good quality craft.

Golden with a strong head, strong citrus nose from hops, medium-thin body with bitter finish from dried grapefruit and hops. Little malt presence.

Bottle: Poured a clear golden color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of dry hoppy notes with some citrus undertones and light grapefruit notes. Taste is also a mix of dry hoppy notes with light citrus undertones, subtle grapefruit notes with light bitterness notes also present in the aftertaste. Body is about average with good carbonation. Enjoyable but grapefruit notes are way too subtle for my taste.
