Davros (1806) - Melbourne, - FEB 1, 2013
Pours amber with a small head. Nose shows big pine and grapefruit along with some pure hoppy notes and soft malt. Very aggressive with lots of pine and a big whack of grapefruit along with some light grainy malt. Carbonation could be higher.

imaragingbull (565) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2014
Pours clear lightly hazed gold straw with well retained off white head. Aromas of citrus, pine, resin, grass and light sweet malts. Medium body, generous bitterness, ever present grapefruit flavour and sourness, lingering bitter sour grapefruit juice through the finish. Overall the juice makes this disappointing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Niksko (268) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2014
Pours a darkish yellow with a sudsy off white head.
Nose is grapefruit for days, some pine, pineapple, and a hint of caramel.
Flavour is lots of zesty grapefruit, caramel, pineapple, quite fruity from the juice, and a very biscuity and slightly tart finish, with a good dose of bitterness.
Mouthfeel is light to medium, with a fairly fizzy body. Perhaps a little overcarbonated.
A solid IPA, with an interesting sourness and flavour from the grapefruit.

omhper (18963) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2014
Bottled at Mrs Parmas, Melbourne, Victoria. Hazy golden, mid sized head. Grapefruit aroma. Fairly sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Some sugar and vegetables, rip fruits and grapefruit. Mid bitter finish with some resin. Like an odd mix of IPA and grape tonic.

Chris from Masterchef really has come a long way. He’s making cracking beers, this little beauty included. You can smell the zythos hops coming through the otherwise strong grapefruit aromas. There’s also candied lemon, grapefruit and some and some great earthy aromas to boot. The taste is refreshing and hides its 6% alcohol dangerously well. Nice one, Chris.

330ml Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden colour with an orange tint. Well laced, medium white head. Strong aromas of citrus, pine, pale malts and lots of grapefruit, Floral with hints of honey. Initial flavour is a malty sweetness with notes of pine. This quickly moves into a large citrus taste with notes of straw. Finish is all grapefruit, a very zesty flavour, which is dry and bitter. A very refreshing beer.

Awesome head atop a golden colour. Grapefruit flavours up front with well balanced hoppiness and grapefruit bitterness aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yes I was embarrassed ordering this cunt. Gay label, gay idea. Pretty fucking good beer. Nice pungent nose, cunts didn’t get too carried away with the grapefruit. Feel like I just came out of the closet. Good shit.

Riding on the back of their first beer I don’t think Bone yard could put a step wrong at the moment. Chilled and into a snifter. Needed a lot of rousing on the pour just to lift a film of white atop. The body a hazy, dull amber with very carbonation. Definite, well pronounced, ripe grapefruit comes out on the nose as does sour lime, pineapple and candied lemon. Perfectly executed, all encompassing bitter grapefruit pulp and peel on the palate, so fresh it was like biting right into one. Lingering bitter herbs, sour citrus and lightly peppery notes add a refreshing zing to it. Body is much lighter than expected with moderate to low carbonation. A lot of pine, sawdust and husky grain in there ensuring a dry overall mouthfeel. The star of the show though is the grapefruit which just dominates and quenches so well making it deadly sessionable; the glass finished before the rating. I must say I favoured the Golden ale over this one but saying that this is still an outstanding ale. Lovely stuff!! (33cL, no date stamp, Cellarbrations Carlisle)
