UPDATED: SEP 16, 2012 12oz bottle. Golden amber colored brew with some white sticky head. Aromas of grapefruit and candy sweetness. Flavor is quite balanced - nice malt backbone with some spicy hops. Pleasantly surprised by this one.

Bottle. Pours a bright gold with a light head. Nose is almost candied; reminds me of lime Life-Savers or candied cherry. Lots of hop flavor; a definite green or vegetal overtone has just enough malt to balance it out. Finishes a little murky.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAR 3, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper with very nice beige head. Aroma is strong, over ripe grapefruit, spicy, malty, various fruity esters. Flavor is some what sweet malt, aggressive spicy hop, ripe grapefruit with a tangy bitter in the finish. Very enjoyable brew!

madvike (3072) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 2, 2011
Bottle - Pours clear golden amber with a fine-bubbled off-white head. Smells of sharp, sour grapefruit hops, pine, and grass. Light malt, but the hops are the star here. Not as bold and citrusy as I’d like, but not a profile I’ve smelled much before. This is fairly unique for me. Taste is pretty sweet up front, with malt that isn’t present on the nose. The finish is pretty much the same as the smell--real bitter grapefruit, pine, and grass--but with a bit of a sharp alcohol bite. Real slick, oily, and resiny. Light, soft carbonation lets the flavor come through. Interesting, but a little hot and not the hop profile for me.

Not what I was expecting. It isn’t all that bitter. Much more emphasis on the malts. It has a nice body, caramel tones, with just a touch of pine and citrus bitterness.

malrubius (2043) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - FEB 27, 2011
12 ounce bottle from AJs Scottsdale. Copper with lasting dense head and lace. Mild grapefruit orange cinnamon aroma. Grapefruit orange cinnamon biscuit with assertive bitter grapefruit finish. Pretty nice.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2014 Bottle: Copper pour with just the slightest haze. Small, creamy sand-colored head. Smooth citrus and slightly malty scent. Light florals too. Immediate I2PA impact at first sip; sweet citrus, tropical fruit, maltiness, and a little heavier floral presence. Lightly bitter, but lingeringly sweet finish. Pretty good stuff.
