Reid (2051) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 3, 2014
22 oz bottle from "Lifesource" in Salem OR $4.29 Pours a typical burnt orange IPA colour but with a great thick,tight,creamy off white head. Fruity/piney juicy hop aromas..pine,lemon zest,pink grapefruit and papaya..delicious. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma but with a nice light caramel malt backing which holds it together somewhat. Good medium bodied palate..with medium high carbonation,very drinkable. Good IPA..liked it.

poisoneddwarf (1911) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Bomber bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, ID. Aroma is perfume, floral, light grapefruit. Pours hazy golden orange with a collapsing white head. Taste is medium bitter, light grapefruit, dry, kind of bland. One and done.

jake65 (2873) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle: Bright golden color, small off-white head. No surprises in the way it smells… citrus, grapefruit, melon. Nice. Hop flavor is also on point; citrus, subtle florals, and melon. Light malt backbone. Hits the spot.

MartinT (8396) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2015
My Bottom Line:
This brightly floral and grapefruity IPA delivers exactly what it advertises, building a highly invigorating experience.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the clear pale amber.
-The grapefruit peel fits it perfectly with the hop bill, so much that it is difficult to identify clearly.
-The mild caramel backbone doesn’t get in the way of the fruity profile at all.
-Bitter hop resins are restrained for the style.
-Mouthfeel is lean and easygoing.

rosenbergh (8285) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2015
12 oz bottle. (By the Bottle) Vancouver, WA.
Clear orange colour with a small white head. Citrus, peach, pomelo, mild bitterness, cookies and malt The flavour is strong hops with grapefruit, citrus, resin, cookie sweetness, sweetish malt and some sugary notes. Citrusy, bitter and surprisingly sweet. A bit thin too.

Zymurgeist2 (1246) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle to glass. Moderate citrus and a little herb. Deep gold and slight orange with a moderate white head that dissipates quickly to leave a collar and scattered dusting across the top. Taste is mixture of malt and citrus hop, with some resiny peel. Moderate high bitterness.

JohnGalt1 (733) - , Idaho, USA - MAY 6, 2015
12oz from Brewer’s Haven... But all the bottle shops have it too... Pours clear light orange with a flimsy white head.. In the nose, expected pithy notes are indistinguishable from citrus hops. Bitter IPA elements are pretty standard.. The grapefruit just hits the same cylinders... Don’t hate it, but it certainly isn’t breaking new ground... Very drinkable and never overbearing.

chuckstout (310) - Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Nice citrus, grapefruit aroma pours a copper color with an off white head and good lacing. Excellent mouthfeel and body throughout the pallette. Solid bitterness, with caramel and citrus, grapefruit, citrus fruit pith. Highly drinkable excellent ipa.

I love this IPA. Great aroma and the taste is incredible. When I start drinking IPA'S in the early morning I always hope to find these bad boys in my cooler. Great beer for sure.
