3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice grapefruit flavor and sharp citrus hops up front. Aroma is similar. A bit thin in the palate, not very bitter, and the flavor fades pretty quickly. A thirst quencher which would make for a good summer seasonal.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Beer Authority. Murky yellowish color. Grapefruit pith dominates here. Basically just grapefruit pith and some hops. Not particularly bitter, just very grapefruit heavy in general. Not bad, but pretty one dimensional.

Poured a semi hazy orange with a white head. Aroma was earthy hops and grapefruit rind. Flavor similar, overly bitter and rind more than juice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: cloud medium gold with a short, short-lived off-white head, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: grapefruit, bready malt, stone and tropical fruit. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, mild tart. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate-low carbonation, off-dry lightly tart finish. (3/5)
I might be a touch generous with my rating here, but Iím a sucker for a grapefruit IPA. That said, Iíd like this more if there were more of it. I can see the argument for subtlety, but I donít tend to be a subtle kind of guy. More is always better, right? Good fun, if not great. (13/20)

The grapefruit is there but not a lot. I was pretty disappointed with this one. The flavor is just not that good and has a weird mouthfeel, a hint of dirty water maybe ( which could be the fault of the yard house)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Hazy gold pour with a puffy white head. Juicy grapefruit and zesty hop aroma. Flavor has much of the same. Peppery and zesty hops with a good citrus backbone and a lightly bitter finish.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Grapefruit and tangerine nose more of the latter actually. Juicy! Hazy amber, medium head. Grapefruit and lilly initially. A surge of lillies and honeysuckle at midpalate. Honeysuckle finish. Medium body, easy carbonation. Itís becoming cliche in my Abita ratings, but this brewery has been killing it lately.

Nice and light! Definitely get the grapefruit off the jump but finish is kind of weak and a little sour. Golden color with practically no head at all.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden with a nice creamy head. Aroma is a strong presence of grapefruit and citrus hops. First taste is hops driven with grapefruit and citrus, mildly sweet. Finishes with a mildly bitter taste that is dominated by grapefruit and citrus. Good pairing for grilled seafood dishes or as an after dinner choice. Not the greatest IPA around but one of the best Abita has to offer.
