12oz. bottle, one of the better labels that I’ve seen. Pours a light clear orange with white head. Fantastic hoppy grapefruit aroma. Taste is super grape-fruity with some citrus, quite bitter finish. Good brew.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2014 Tap: Pure, goldenrod body with some amber towards the center; cloudy, foamy white head takes its time settling as it leaves some nice, webbed lacing on the glass. Aroma is a Citra hop explosion with heavy grapefruit rind, pineapple, orange peel, dripping wet hop oils, pine sap, resin. Hint of dankness... but dat grapefruit. Flavor is the same way - blast of bitter grapefruit. Dry & bitter. But not overly done. Lupulin gold with pine, resin, grapefruit, citrus rind, & unripe pineapple. Hint of peppery & herbal hops towards the finish, reaching back towards that pine profile. Clean, dry finish. No malt to be found. A delicious IPA, probably my favorite from Short’s.

12oz bottle, thanks to umich03jm. Hazy orange golden color. Thin ring of head. Some loose bits of lace. Medium body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Good bready malt. Citrus hop, light pine, good grapefruit zest. Very balanced flavor profile. Very easy drinking and refreshing. Good moderate bitter, lighter sweet taste. Awesome stuff. Like so many Shorts beers, very easy to drink. So poundable. I love that. Great stuff. Big thanks to Jason for this one. The type of beer you could drink all day. I’d write and contemplate more on this but my beer disappeared. Would be worth getting a sixer of this.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is grapefruit, sweet, somewhat piny, a touch light. Appearance is straw gold, white head. Taste is smooth, somewhat light, balanced between hops and grapefruit. Pretty bitter and dry finish. Mouthfeel is nice, sweet, not too carbonated, nice easy drinker. Overall, it’s pretty good stuff but I expected the grapefruit to come out more. Anyway, worth a shot for sure.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, thanks mrebeks. Pours a very cloudy pale orange with a small foamy head that fades to a ring and leave nice soapy lacing. Aroma grapefruit juice and grapefruit rinds. Also has some flowers and crackers. Taste like juicy grapefruit juice without the tartness. Peppery and spicy in the finish. Some cracker/bread malt is present too. Delcious stuff if you like grapefruit.

Grapefruit really comes through in this one. Blends well with flavors of citrus hops, moderate caramel and hints of wheat and pepper. Very refreshing beer. Shorts knows their IPAs.
