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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Serving: bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. Pours a hazy, almost muddy gold with a thin white ring for a head. Floral, soapy nose. Odd grapefruit pith and rotting citrus flavor. Very dry. Iíve had worse but thatís not saying much. Pass on this one.

Draft at the source. Hazy straw color, medium white head. Aroma of light citrus. Taste has grapefruit but not much acidity. OK.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange pour. Metallic smell asking with fruitiness. Taste is grapefruit, metal and Crystal malt and tea. Kind of Amber like flavor with some grapefruit. Drinkable but tastes cheap and like a mix of tea hops and Amber ale malt.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home in Salisbury - picked up at Stateline. Pours mostly clear orange-gold with a large, frothy white head. Whoa, yeah, lots of grapefruit juice in the aroma, perhaps some grapefruit gummy candies. Medium sweet flavor with some bready pale malts, a bit of pine, citrus rind, more grapefruit essence, faint lemon. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Moderately sweet to finish with refreshing, juicy grapefruit character, some bitter pine notes, understated pale bread, lemon, tangerine. Actually pretty decent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Bottle] Pours a nice orange color with a small white head on top. Aroma of grapefruit zest and lighter malts. More of a juicy compared to a hoppy nose. Taste is of grapefruit, blood orange, mild pine, residual sugars and floral notes. Overall not particularly hoppy, or the hops are at least overshadowed by the grapefruit juice. Effervescent and dry. Iím sure the masses will love this beer this summer. Not terrible if you like beer as well.

Fruit or ipa? The grapefruit dominates the aroma. The pour is light amber w/ a nice white head that leaves some lacing. The taste is an interesting blend of grapefruit & hops. Iíll give it props for originality!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy light pink tinted bronzed and copper coloured body with a nice two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of very resinous hops, grass, herbs, grapefruit of course, but the dankest of hops noticeable. Medium-bodied; Assertive aggressive hop bitterness coupled with a definite grapefruit juice bitterness shows well up front but is fairly one-sided, there isnít much after all the bitterness and mouth puckering. Aftertaste is nice with a definite fruity kick coupled with the pungent and relatively earthy, herbal notes coming from the hops. Overall, a nice and one-dimensional beer with the hops joining well for a bitterness attack alongside the grapefruit. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle (stubby, Abita style, no twist off though) purchased from World Market in Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia on 22-February-2014 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 18-May-2014.

12oz bottle, a decent ipa overall, the grapefruit flavors do nothing to enhance the flavors. Mild, thin, decent for the summer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   A pithy beer with definite pink grapefruit like flavors.   Hops are minor.   Feels like a Grapefruit Harvest Pale Ale.   Light, pale, pithy with soft grapefruit flavor.   Pretty clean, just a light example for an IPA.   Not a lot of hop flavor, well bitterness at least.   Mild, but decent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a thin head on a cloudy straw colored body.
The aroma is faint grapefruit.
The taste has a strong grapefruit bitter start which mellows out to sweet and malt balance in the middle to finish.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
The lack of smell was a letdown but the grapefruit (from real grapefruit) flavor was nice.
