Lots of particlutae that gently floated to bottom. Almost looks like seeds or remnants. Nose is full of citrus overtones. Taste is a bit citrusy, but more than anything is the malty backbone as the can suggests. Decent beer.

Poured from 12oz can into Spiegelau IPA glass. Canned on March 22nd, 2017. Old but oh well.

L: Hazy orange, half a finger of white head, has average retention.

S: Rich grapefruit, some sweet fruit as well.

T: Tons of grapefruit to the point of some sourness. Not a lot of hoppy bitterness.

F: Light, crisp, lingering sour grapefruit.

O: Not great. Not good. Sub-par.

Pours a hazed amber with a sliver of cream colored head. Dissapointing head retention & lacing

Some grainyness

T: Grapefruit, a little bready dryness up front. Plenty of grapefruit & a little breadyness, plus dryness as this warms. Finishes dry & grapefruitty

MF: Light body, medium carbonation, pretty good balance

Good take on the style, but was hoping for more

Hazy amberish color with plenty of white foam in the tumbler. This tastes distinctly like watery grapefruit juice. Spritzy, aromatic with citrus peel.

This can't be compared in any way to Grapefruit Sculpin, this is just a completely different kind of beer, though it has the same name. I actually don't taste any hops, though there is a pleasant bitter finish. What it is, is a very lightweight but easy to drink fruit-flavored brew. From the 12 oz can purchased at Wilbur's Beverage in Fort Collins, Colo.

Quick review. Definitely don't get the hate. $1.79 for a single and it was well worth it. Super pithy, Lives up to its name and then some. One of the best session strength ipa brews.

I even gave this a second try thinking it was a bad pour. No, no it wasn't. The grapefruit has taken on a prune and vinegar taste complexion. Not my favorite. Smell hints at the ruby red grapefruit juice but gets to vinegar in a hurry. The base isn't bad with the hops and malts giving the beer a decent feel, but the burning booze, vinegar and pruney grapefruit is too powerful
