Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.30%

Notes / Commercial Description:
It’s dangerous to go alone…take this with you. Arcade Brewery has crafted this very sessionable IPA featuring citrus hop aroma and the addition of grapefruit; creating an awesome balance between hop bitterness and the citrus bite. A fine balancing act of biscuit malts allows a long hop finish wont fatigue taste buds; allowing the second pint to build off the first. An immensely sessionable ale, [the] Grapefruit IPA will win over all drinkers and give IPA lovers a new take on the incredibly popular style.

12 oz. bottle, no bottled on date. Acquired a single bottle from the local bottle shop, first time I have seen this available in twelve ounce bottles.

Poured into a Duvel tulip snifter.

A - Pours a dark clouded burnt sienna orange. One finger of khaki / off-white head that leaves good fluffy spotty lacing. Looks very nice.

S - Aromas of soft citrus and biscuit malt. Grapefruit not as powerful as I'd thought it would have been. Notes of blood orange and lemons

T - Taste is the same: soft citrus and brown bread, caramel malts. Again, grapefruit isn't prominent, nor is it even a flavor I'd use to describe this. Notes of citrus are apparent, however - but it tastes more like blood oranges and lemons. Bready & biscuity.

M - Feel is smooth, crisp, & easy-drinking. Good carbonation. Moderate lingering hop bitterness.

Overall, an okay offering from Arcade. I feel like this was a fresh bottle, but it was far more caramel / bready / malt forward than grapefruit.

Insanely heady and smelled infected. Smelled like homebrew and tasted the same. Rough.
