UPDATED: OCT 30, 2007 10/25 rerate: What the heck happened to this beer. It went from one of the greatest Iíve ever tried to something barely palatable. Tasted bland, grainy, stale. I guess thatís the diversity you can get with beer brewed in small batches. Iíd give this IPA about a 2. My rating will be the avg. Original: Had this one on tap at the restaurant... WOW. I have NEVER tasted a brew with this much grapefruit flavor/aroma. I loved it. I have had so many beers with citrus hops but donít even come close to this amount of grapefruit. Iím thinking maybe they use an s-load of chinook. Iím a homebrewer and I would love to take a shot at making this IPA. Next time Iím down there Iím going to pick thethe brewmasters mind and see what heís using. Fantastic. Nicely balanced with malt. Very light body goes great with the citrus flavors. SO refreshing! I havenít been this excited about a brew in a long time. Bottoms up!

Hazy light amber with decent white head. Hop nose. Green hop flavor...didnít like it. Seems as if the used the hops when they were still too young.

Tap. Slightly hazy golden orange. Lots of hops but also smooth. Tingles in the mouth. Nice malty medium body.

Bitter, vague clove taste. Decent flavoring.
