2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: sweet citrus and notes of pine
Appearance: very clear yellow small fast devolving head
Taste: Less like beer and more like what i would almost call a citrus cider, grapefruit and spice with lemon grass very little hops or malt
Palate: Fizzy, a touch to carbonated perhaps along with the sweetness it almost come off like pop rocks
Overall: not bad, not good, none the less refreshing and different.

Catching up on some old ratings from Untappd -- First rated on 26 May 2011. Had this a few times and my recalling evokes nothing but pleasant memories. I always drank this beer in sunny and hot Florida, and that is really what this beer is suited for. It is very effervescent and refreshing. Great beach beer.

12oz can. Poured a golden color with a larger sized head. Yuck ... lots of ginger and spiciness that just didn’t agree with my tastes. A few sips and down the drain.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This was more like a soda than anything. Strong ginger ale aroma with some citrus. It had a pretty clear copper color with a regular head. Highly carbonated and light palate. More of the same in the way of taste. Ginger soda with some grapefruit notes. A little sweet but not very beer centric. I think I’ll leave this one alone.

Bottle on 07/02/2011 courtesy of MaltDawg. Clear golden body with a small frothy white head. Sweet ginger aroma with some light fruit. Ginger and fruit flavor with some dry graininess in the background. Medium body with high carbonation.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Orange with copper highlights under a fizzy seltzer-esque head that fades into nothing. No foam, no lace, no collar – nothing. Swirls with nothing.
Sweet rolls and Hawaiian rolls. Sweet ruby red grapefruit juice followed by generic citric esters in the back. Candied lemon and grapefruit cheweable candies. More sweet than tart.
Prickly spritzy mouthfeel makes the top of my tongue tingle. Watery pink lemonade and watery ruby red grapefruit juice. Very quick and miniscule finish of generic citric rind bitterness. Generic white crackers underneath.
Nothing special. It’s supposed to be brewed with some kind of Texas Rio Red Grapefruit Juice and ginger but unfortunately the grapefruit is watery and the ginger is non-existent. Moving on.

Bottle. Dull umber hue, ginger ale soda aroma, taste, sweetness. No evidence of grapefruit, let alone the reputed Cascade hops. Drain pour.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Got real excited for this, I love grapefruit raddlers, maybe this can be my summer 2013 beer?!
Pours a copper ale with brilliant clarity and no foam. Smells like sugar, some grapefruit (way too sweet), some pear and a little english malt. Pretty unimpressed so far. Tastes like a hot dog with some artificial sweetener and a little grapefruit - horrible. Thin with moderate carb and an off dry finish. That is a shitty beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pour of a light amber with I head but a ton of champaign bubbles. Aroma of a grapefruit soda with all the carbonation still bubbling up that dissipates quickly. Taste of that same light grapefruit with a light sweet malt but no real citrus hops to speak of. Feels like a sparkling water, which is kind of fun, but there is no finish taste to speak of. A beer that disappears from my mind as quickly as it's taste did

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a light amber with pink undertones. Very little head. The smells are of grains and grapefruit, but not like the grapefruit you sometimes get in an IPA. The taste starts with a citric grapefruit flavor backed by a strong grain flavor. No hops to speak of. Mouth feel is thin/light with a medium amount of carbonation. Definitely not a beer I will buy again and honestly something I might pass on so I can drink one of those "Macro American Lagers". That said I do know people that like this beer. Thank goodness for different tastes.
