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.

On tap at Hay Merchant Houston. No head when it arived. Golden color. The grapefruit dominated the taste spectrum. Ok IPA.

Pous a nice medium amber color with white head. Grapefruit pretty much dominates the nose, just a hint of pine; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a small hop bite.

I found this to be a step up from all the shandy type grapefruit stuff that’s been coming around lately. It has a little more beer taste than what’s out there and the 6% is strongest of those I’ve tried. Definitely a summer bbq type drink to be served ice cold. Get it above 7% and put it in a can, and I’ll up the rating.

Drjohnrock (540) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2015
Twelve ounce bottle from Abita variety 12 pack purchased at Jeff’s Marathon, tasted on March 22, 2015. Hazy medium gold hue, nice aroma of grapefruit/resin/hops, somewhat creamy texture, well balanced bittersweet flavor with prominent grapefruit notes. Fine brew.

trapped (1102) - New York City, TURKEY - MAR 19, 2015
Bottle @ NYC Craft Beer festival. Hazy pale yellow with very small whgite foamy head, little citrus aroma, low carbonation, strong grapefruit taste, bitter long finish. Interesting fruity beer.

chinchill (2621) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 5, 2015
12 oz bottle. Excellent fruity aroma. Suggests a taste that is sweeter than reality. Lightly hazy amber body with a large white head. Some sweetness up front, then moderatly tart and midly bitter. Plenty of grapefruit and more vaguely citrus fruit.

BVery (7438) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle. This totally hits a sweet spot for me - absolutely loving this. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Huge aroma and taste of red grapefruit, but not really tart/sour. Just a bit, but more sweet and juicy. Yummy.

S_Side_Smitty (545) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Pours yellow yellow yellow with a thick white head. Aroma is citrusy hops and a very distinct grapefruit rind aroma. Taste is white grapefruit that immediately goes to some muted malts and a mellow bitter finish. All of the flavors are kinda rounded off and watery. Nothing sharp about this one.

csaso (1571) - Missouri, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle - good size foamy head, hazy medium straw color, definite grapefruit aroma and flavor, but a little more on the sweet side of grapefruit as opposed to bitter, fair malt backbone, pretty good overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

deaconmike (415) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Light golden yellow with white head and some lacing. Refreshing grapefruit aroma with some biscuity malts. A bit of a lager taste to this beer. Fizzy and crisp. Decent citrusy ipa.

Great summer drinking beer. Would buy in bottles to drink out on the patio. Much more palatable than Ruby Redbird. Not too happy for me.
