12 oz bottle.
Clear amber body with a very good head. Plenty of grapefruit in the nose. The juice blend nicely with the hops upon tasting.
Very smooth for style.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly cloudy yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is very nice with a big grapefruit smell. The taste is light hops with grapefruit. A very good beer.

Color is spot on, with a semi-deep grapefruit color and minimal head. Aroma has grapefruit but is a little too light. Taste is refreshing, nicely carbonated but somewhat subdued. Overall, a good flavored IPA but could have used a bit more as far as the flavor profile. Finishes fairly clean and crisp

-spiegelau ipa glass. slice one open. 1.29.17 consumed 1.29.17.

A: Hazy, dull orange in the vessel, has a big display of effervesce. One inch standing spongey textured head is seashell white in color and well standing thereafter.

S: Fresh pink grapefruit first on the nose, wet and juicy, some sugary notes, with a decent level of execution. Soft fresh lemon peel is slighly dry and soft, bittering adding balance along with some citrus and a light flowery hop leave. Some lightly dried and sweet toasted grains finish things off here.

T: Flavor was toasted grain and grapefruit, flowery citrus hops with some light lemon peel. Increasing flowery citrus hops move in upon the swallow, soft and dry adding some balance to initial malt and sugary grapefruit sweetness with a light toasted malt touch.

M: Light to medium mouthful by weight, average carbonation factor, more of a light summer time feel.

O: A nice splash of grapefruit, against a soft, toasty backing good for poolside refreshment when you want something tart, light, and thirst quenching without being weighed down. Not as much a hopbomb, as a grapefruit complimented alcohol beverage, light and refreshing when the time calls for.

A: The beer is somewhat hazy amber yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation along with some fine particulates floating in suspension. It poured with a short white head that quickly settled down, leaving a patch of bright white bubbles on the surface, a narrow collar around the edge of the glass, and bits of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of grapefruit rind are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of grapefruit (but without much of the associated acidity) and a light to moderate amount of carbonation.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA definitely tastes like grapefruit was added to it, unlike the typical type of grapefruit taste that you get from citrusy hops.
