imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, - 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

Well presented beer. Smells like grapefruit. I can taste and smell the grapefruit flavour. Seems a bit on the non-bitter side for an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Slowbeer (Feb 2014). Slightly hazy golden, massive billowing head, highly (overly?) carbonated, name says it all, tart grapefruit aroma and flavour, but well balanced by some sweet caramel malt, ripe pineapple character too. Really good.

I expected to hate this beer. But it seriously surprised me by actually being subtle, slick and very drinkable, if a bit odd. It’s beautiful to look at - golden, with rich dense fine bubbled head. Malt quality is lovely in mouth and finish as well (cool to see german malts in ipa). Cleanly fermented. hops not overpowering at all - delicately citric even - kind of weird pithy grapefruit juice flavour sticks out on its own. Ditch the grapefruit and this could be an outstanding APA. look forward to trying more from this brewery.

Niksko (375) - 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 (19930) - 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.

marom92 (47) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2014
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
