12 oz can from Hinda65 into a Yakima Valley wide mouthed glass.

Really deep juicy orange color with a tall creamy head of 3 fingers, receding gradually to 1/2 finger.

Aromas of juicy general citrus, some sulfur, a little burnt tire rubber, and a bit of grapefruit seltzer.

Flavor brings grapefruit flesh and orange peel both, followed by some cracker/breadiness, lemon icing, and finally a finish of lemon wafer cookie.

Feel is acidic and juicy with some heaviness and hardness to it, almost like hard water, with a moderate to heavy alcohol presence and some acidity and lingering resins on the finish.

Overall not a bad IPA. A good one to jam on for a half an hour while watching YouTube videos.

12 oz bottle from Harmons. Yellow, hazy body with small frothy head. Aroma is citrusy, grapefruits, hint of lemon. Taste is more citrus, very light, but the body is nice. A bit of lingering tang.

I love this. It is thin in some respect...but creamy and satisfying. A nice orange julius-esque look: hazy, orange, creamy head. A citrus, grapefruit smell and a medium mouthfeel (perhaps on the lighter side of medium-bodied). Tastes like a grapefruit bomb with a herbal and malt backbone. Very juicy. A great brunch beer.

A very solid New England-style session IPA. Definitely lives up to its name - the grapefruit is quite prominent here. It has a creamy mouthfeel and a smooth aftertaste almost entirely lacking in bitterness. It's a little bit on the thin side, but overall very impressive for the ABV - lots of flavor and it nailed the creamy mouthfeel and juicy/fruity flavor.
