after the sculpin grapefruit this held no comparison. sampler from a bomber it poured a light brown orange color. you could get a grapefruit aroma but it was mild..medium malt backbone and some citrus hops. this was the bomb of the night no offense just didn’t hold up to the best of the rest.

Type: 16-oz. draft Glass: Large snifter From: Tap n Handle in Fort Collins, Colo. Price: $5.00 Purchased: April 18, 2015 Consumed: April 18, 2015 Misc.: N/A Poured a caramel, semi-clear color with two fingers of frothy, white head when I got it. Nice circular spotty lacing on the sides of the glass. Above average retention. (Sight - 4.13) Smelled Citra, caramel, light grapefruit and buttery malts. (Smell - 3.75) Tasted similar to the nose, getting those buttery malts, veggies, Citra, sharp grapefruit, some floral hops with a bitter finish. (Taste - 3.50) Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.38) Just not that good overall and I regret even getting it when there were so many good beers there. Bitterness just dominated the palate. Not close to balanced at all. (Overall - 3.50) 3.57 81 B

The blurb said there was a "citrus hop bomb" in this IPA. More like a damp firecracker. New Belgium has recently come out with their Slow Ride IPA. Now THERE is some grapefruit. Disappointing.

Beaver (1443) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2015
22 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a big creamy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is huge grapefruit and piney, resiny hops.

The flavor is some sweet bready malt and fruit with grapefuit, pine and resiny hops with decent bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a nicely balanced IPA with lots of fruit and grapefruit and big piney resiny hops.

Golden and effervescent. Very grapefruity in the aroma and the flavor. Pungent with a light grassy finish.

Hazy gold, white head. Great flavor of the grapefruit bursts through with grassy and lightly herbal hops. Tasty!

I enjoyed this beer a lot. IPAs are often over done so it was nice to try something that was a bit more unique.

Tap at Strange. Citrus and pine. Smooth and extreme citrusy. Very drinkable and puckering with grapefruit.

On tap at Colorado Plus. Orange and pretty clear appearance with a lasting white head. Aroma and flavor of grapefruit, citrus zest, tropical fruits and medium hop bitterness. Tasty.

Mep3222 (839) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Very nice grapefruit hop aroma. Flavor is well balanced and malty. Has a piney hop finish and mostly bitter. Not overly sweet. Really a nice brew. Maybe slightly malty and bready but otherwise very balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
