8/10/18...pours clear gold with heavy white foam. Earthy grapefruit pine nose. Slight lemon open, then grapefruit filled bitter takes over. Rinds. Clean mouthfeel, lighter bodied. Tasty.

Notes via stream of consciousness: 5.5% ALC./VOL.? And this is an IPA? Interesting. It's poured a just slightly hazy yellow gold body beneath a creamy head of bright white. I Don't see a lot of bubbles rising but it's certainly a good looking glass of beer. In the nose it's bright with sweetened grapefruit. It's sweetish, that's for sure, and although they've used real grapefruit they've also used natural flavors and that's probably where that's coming from. Not that that's bad, I'm just pointing it out, and for all I know that sweetness could just be from malt. On to the flavor... very much the same. The grapefruit flavor is there along with a very slight bit of acidity and some bitterness, but it lacks authenticity. That's OK as well, again, just pointing it out - I would most likely not want to drink a beer that had an actual fresh, acidic and bitter grapefruit taste. There's some pleasant grainy and sweetish malt supporting it, balanced by a firm bitterness, and it finishes dry with a little bit of earthiness and lots of fruitiness lingering. This would probably make a great summer beer for when you're out in the heat at a backyard BBQ. The hops come through with orange, some light pineapple, some grapefruit, and a hint of pine and herb. It's pretty nice. I'd love to see more of those hops in the aroma but at the same time I can see why they wouldn't want to disturb what they've already got going. So let's finish up, in the mouth it's medium bodied and gently crisp-then-smooth. Looking back the head held up fairly well, and then left some very nice streaky and patchy broken lace about the glass. Overall it's a pretty decent fruit beer, and I can see where they're going with calling it an IPA even if it is at the low end of the spectrum at 5.5% ABV. Probably worth trying, and definitely so if you're a fruit beer fan, or just really like grapefruit.

The tongue tastes the hops first and the citrus second. Surprisingly not at all acidic, given the flavor. Nantucket brewing at its finest.
