this beer is everything I wanted in a Grapefruit IPA, it’s not sweet, nor should a grapefruit IPA be. bitter and citrusy, almost like the rind of a grapefruit this beer is a cold refreshing gulp of summer. please can and distribute soon.

Pours dark golden with a thick beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with balancing citrus bitterness. Refreshing.

Draft @ DTW. Nice hoppy aroma. Dark golden color, with not much head or lacing. Slightly earthy bitterness, but pleasant. Med bodied. Overall, a pretty drinkable IPA.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2015
Tap: Deep amber-copper body with a huge yeasty haze throughout. Large, big-bubbled, foamy eggshell cap. Aroma hits with spicy hops up front. Peppery, floral, a bit ashy, undertones of grapefruit rind & citrus peel. Strong toasted bread & caramel malts linger in the background. Somewhat monotone. Flavor has a big white pepper & herbaceous bitterness that stings with each sip. Toned down citrus notes with a heavier accent on the leafy, grassiness. Still a touch of grapefruit pith in there, though. More caramel malt sweetness & a bit of residual sugar in the finish. Kind of has that "old" feel to it. Thick bodied, at least given the style & ABV. Decent at best.
