Pours a clear, classic golden color with a thin white top. Mild nose. A little flat with some grapefruit. The mouthfeel is smooth and wet. There’s a flatness to the flavor. Not much going on. Definitely a session. Light grapefruit and lemon.

Draft. Pours a thin, poorly retained off white head, with minimal lacing, over a very slightly hazy yellow (SRM 3) body.....nose is grapefruit, light cereal malts, herbal hops, no esters, nicely balanced.....taste is mild toasted malts with biscuit, toast notes, mild herbal hops, light grapefruit notes throughout.....mouth feel, light body, moderate acid, carbonation adds tingle. This is a pleasantly malty, lightly fruity, nicely balanced beer. It is not particularly complex, but is a refreshing summer beer. The grapefruit was used with a light hand and the result is a good session type beer. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

Steve_0 (2651) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pour is clear golden yellow with a small white head and decent lacing. Aroma is very faint - with hints of bread, lightly citrusy, orange peel, and grapefruit. Taste is heavy malty, with sweet fruit notes, citrus, oranges, and floral hops - there is this odd heavy wheaty aftertaste. Light body with high carbonation. Starts out somewhat sweet and fruity but ends with this weird homebrew twang. Drinkable, but nothing special.

adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Tap @ brewery. Clear, golden appearance with a slightly off white head. Citrusy, grapefruit, lemon, a touch spicy, herbal aroma. Somewhat too bitter, citrusy, grapefruit, lightly piney hoppy flavor. Ok.

arminjewell (6173) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Pour on tap at the brewery, slightly hazy orange with white head, aroma has notes of sweet grapefruit, pineapple, hints of orange, slight biscuit and spicy hops come through, touch of sweet cracker as well. Taste is nice and refreshing, some sweet grapefruit going right into bitter orange peel, some slight cracker malts balanced by spice, finishing fairly dry. Nice.

onceblind (4043) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Clearish golden with a thin white head. Lovely citric rind aroma with notes of fresh sweet grapefruit, a touch of lemon zest, with a sweet caramel backbone with a touch of citrusy leafy hops. Taste is crisp and clean but with a nice medium-full body, full of citrus hoppiness (with medium-low bitterness) and a heaping tone of sweet grapefruit peel and grapefruit zest. Pure delight with a sweet citrusy mild finish.
