COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Abita Grapefruit Harvest is a brilliant golden IPA with a subtle zest of grapefruit flavor and aroma that enhances the strong hop character. This bright, snappy brew is made with real Louisiana Ruby-Red grapefruits, pale, pilsner and caramel malts and cascade hops. The strong hop profile and subtle zest of grapefruit make it a good choice with grilled chicken. This brew would also pair well with ceviche or raw Louisiana oysters.

This is not an IPA, but is much more like a fruit beer. It has a very light body, and not much in the malt or hops department. The grapefruit aroma is very nice, and the taste is not overpowering. If you enjoy grapefruit, you’ll probably like this beer. If you’re looking for an IPA with grapefruit, look elsewhere.

Sorry, but this thing was undrinkable to me. A pour in the nearest sink. A complete whiff.

Palidor19 (2881) - Brandon, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2014
This beer has an unique emphasis due to the taste of citrus hops and grapefruit that complement each other perfect. Bitter but not that potent. This a fancy session ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pineypower (2402) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle from Canal’s. Pours out an odd, cloudy orange color with a small off white head. Aroma is of watered down grapefruit juice, some citrus hops, mild grains and a little bit of sweetness. Taste is grapefruit juice, a decent blend of sweet and tart. Some notes of citrus hops come through with some grainy/bready sweetness. Body is a bit thin and after having Stone’s Grapefruit Slam a few days earlier this just doesn’t stand up.

swanmann (568) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - APR 6, 2014
Clear and brassy orange color with small, quick off-white bubbles. Nice citrus, and pine, grapefruit aroma with some caramel. Nice citrus rind bitterness, with a bit of aspirin/ metallic twang and some caramel sweetness. It finishes pretty quick. Quite lovely, sessionable seasonal IPA.

12oz Bottle To Tulip. Pours a foggy gold with thin white head. Aroma is that of hops and grapefruit. Slightly grainy finish with decent finish. Better Than Expected

I am not usually a fan of IPAs and I am also not a fan of grapefruits (why are they called "grapefruits"? They don’t look like grapes and aren’t grapes fruits anyways...) This beer a slight notes of grapefruit and a small bit of bitterness, decent summer beer, give ot a whirl.

Hazy amber color in the glass. Very pleasant grapefruit aroma which blends well with the hop aromas. Nice acidity on the palate.

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Sampled at MO Beer Fest. Golden and hazy. An almost white head. This is classic west coast. Citrus with tropical fruit. Pale malts. A bit of a lemontwist at the finish. Nice.

Pours cloudy gold with frothy head and lots of lacing. Medium bodied, big on the hops, with hints of sour in the background. Aromas are citrus, pine, and honey; tangy taste comes from the combination of hops and grapefruit; some tangerine notes as well. Not a bad seasonal from Abita, but not one of their best beers either. I like a single bottle but wouldn’t enjoy a six pack.

jbruner (1959) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange from the bottle with thin cap of white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is bready grain covered by a grapefruit sweetness. Taste is almost all citrus, very nice, definitely grapefruit flavor in there, possibly some extract too. The bitterness is light, soft carbonation, solid beer.
