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.

A bit thin in appearance. Tons of orange and light yellow. Foamy/soapy head. Nothing remarkable.

Holy grapefruit nose! Very true to name. I'm not too big on grapefruit, but the aroma is very crisp, clean, and true.

Very light, wet, bright, and drinkable. Bitterness is much lighter than expected from aroma. Flavors are thin yet quite refined. Quaffable. Carbonation is too high...

I'm not a huge Sessionable IPA guy, but this is still a nice even crisp, solid brew. B&B done well, again. Perfect IPA Starter.
