4.21/5  rDev +13.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

APPEARANCE: Hazy and orange-ish-yellow in color. The white head is about three quarters of an inch thick at its height and eventually drops into a few wisps on the surface. The lacing from the head dropping looks promising at first, but trails off towards the middle of the glass.

SMELL: Fresh grapefruit is pretty much the only aroma I am getting. True to its name, no need for much else.

TASTE: Of course, plenty of grapefruit on the palate, but unlike the nose, the grapefruit on the palate gets a little more help from some friends…mainly, tropical fruit, orange and a touch of pine. This is very well balanced and quite tasty.

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body, slightly sweet to start with a mildly bitter finish. Excellent.

OVERALL: Very solid beer. In fact, good enough to text one of my beer drinking buddies in California. I want to pick up a 6-pack for him, but after searching for a date code on this can, how do I know that it’ll be this good and worthy of limited shipping space for him? That’s my only issue, stepping off the soap box now. Otherwise, honestly, a great beer. There is a solid, grapefruity bitterness that I miss in IPAs these days, but it is rounded out nicely by some of the more juicy, modern hop characteristics.

12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy burnt golden with a small off-white head that falls leaving nice retention and nice lacing. The aromas are pretty mild. I'm not picking up much citrus or grapefruit at all. Lots of malts. Caramel, cocoa and toffee is there. The flavors are malt forward. More caramel, cocoa and toffee. It's not as bitter as I was expecting. Slightly sweet and spicy. Subtle hints of grapefruit in the finish. Mild warmth in the finish, but the alcohol is ultimately well hidden. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with moderate to low carbonation. It's slick and smooth. Dangerously drinkable.

This is an interesting brew. I guess I was expecting some "artificial" grapefruit aromas and flavors, but the grapefruit is subtle and almost goes unnoticed. I actually like it and enjoy it despite it being a little rough around the edges. I do like their original Endpoint much more, for what it's worth.

12oz can. Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of grapefruit, pine and toasted caramel. Very bitter with strong grapefruit. Some sweet toasted caramel.

I remember E3 without grapefruit, so this is an easy, "Yeah, I want one of those." Good choice.

It may be flatter than the original. There is little in the way of carbonation. The aroma is boozy and hoppy, but there is a tiny bit of grapefruit in there. It works well. If only it were more pronounced. I wish I had a dog's sense of smell.

The taste is a cut very of the E3- cut with grapefruit makes it a tiny bit sour and fruity. It is an improvement that should just be left in the E3.

Highly recommended.

It's good, very bittersweet, but very little grapefruit character in either aroma or flavor. Thick body. Hides the alcohol well. If there was more grapefruit, might be better.
