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.

This would be much more appropriately categorized at a Pale Ale...I'd give it more consideration. As an IPA, it is a miss for me. It's not terrible, but it underwhelms with its lack of hop character. And the grapefruit is nearly undetectable.

Pours nice and clean with a little head. Distinct grapefruit, hoppy nose and taste. The name says it all; pretty much what you would think with a good balance of flavors. Drinks easy and would be a great IPA on a summer day.
