A highly hopped IPA with the citrus varieties of hops. Along with the addition of 65 lbs of fresh grapefruit make this a very interesting ale.

On tap at GTMW 2012, my first beer from them. Murky amber with a medium tan head. Aroma is of heavy grapefruit with caramel, toffee and citrus. Taste is of heavy grapefruit as well with caramel, citrus and a moderate bitter finish. Solid offering.

madvike (3191) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2012
On tap at GTMW - Pours rosy amber with a thin white head. Nose is sweet caramel and light citrus. Not all that pungent. Taste is onion, caramel, real sweet and bready without much in the way of hops. Thin and fluffy--big disappointment.

nuplastikk (5709) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2012
On tap at Blue Heron. Amber-tan, frothy head. Pronounced white grapefruit flavor. Really well done, smooth toasty malt body and a steady fresh bitter grapefruit balance. Excellent.

Skyview (5477) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 29, 2012
Sampled on draught at the GTMW 2011 in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a semi hazy orangish-amber colored IPA with an average sized off-white head that has some nice retention. Aroma of citrus zest, grapefruit, and more citrusy hops to shake a stick at. Taste is medium to full bodied, intense grapefruit and grapefruit zest that over-powers the multi-grain malt flavors. Finish is both tart and citrusy, leaded with grapefruit presence that made we wonder if this could be the next breakfast drink to replace my morning grapefruit juice. Would love to try this one again.
