argo0 (11317) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2002
Carbonated orange body with big-bubbled tan head. Aroma is fairly intense grapefruit hoppy. Taste is basically the same, with good bitterness and not much else. This is the sort of beer that I find really hard to rate -- it’s not a great beer, but I love a grapefruit-hoppy beer.

Bottle from Kingdom Liquors. Poured hazy copper color with a large frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus hop and earthy malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft citrus. Moderate bitter flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. Very good brew.

Lubiere (9747) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2006
A dirty hazy amber to brown IPA with a thin off white head. In aroma, a sweet malt aroma with with citrus hops, and signs of oxidation. In mouth, a nutty malt with stroong grapfruits notes, veering on astringent and bilous, lingering in mouth, overpowering the malt... a bit too much for my taste. Medium bodied.

Draft...GBOA ’06... Clear deep golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Grapefruit and pine nose. The flavor is medium sweet, but heavily bitter. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with medium carbonation. Lengthy, violently bitter finish.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2005
Bottle acquired in trade with SpringsLicker (thanks!). Poured a dark amber and cloudy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of flowers with some citrus. Tastes of grapefruit with some oranges and a little fruity. Starts out lightly sweet and ends with a nice hoppy bitterness.

Sammy (8358) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2007
Grapefruit colour with large creamy head. Very smooth to drink, bitter with a bit of vinegar, hop noticeable and resin as well as grapefruit, all toned down by malt. Medium mouthfeel, although creaminess arising through the malt.
