Poured from a growler into a pub glass.
Appearance - a clear gold with a thin, foamy white head. Lacing is fairly weak.
Smell - grapefruit (surprise!) and citrus juice, fantastic!
Taste - Smooth and refreshing taste,and at 4%, I could drink all day!
Feel - light and fairly carbonated. A hint of bitterness from the hops.
Overall - a really good beer that you could share with the wife and score some brownie points! Think a very sessionable IPA! Will most definitely have again!

Served cold in a pint glass.

4.0 G.P.A. (Grapefruit Pale Ale) is a hazy golden yellow color with considerable haze.

Aroma is strong in grapefruit but not totally from hops. I think this beer had some actual fruit added.

Flavor is also big on grapefruit but somehow manages to not be tart. Good balance and nice depth of flavor. A very solid pale ale.

Mouthfeel is medium-light in body and nicely carbonated.

Another excellent Bull & Bush beer. I'm just bummed the kitchen isn't open.

Smothered grapefruit and yeast on the nose and taste. Very light, pleasant grapefruit notes for a summer pale.

Clear gold pour with thick tight white head. Floral nose. Slightly clovey rose petal flavors with a little grapefruit on the finish. Lite mouthfeel with a tiny bit of hop tongue coating - still, crisp. Overall good, I liked the subdued hop/grapefruit in the linger.
