3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint at the brewery. Looks very IPA like: orange, tall head. Grapefruit is apparent in the nose, but not out of hand. It could almost pass for hops, but had that fresh fruit quality to it. The palate is medium and works well. Hops don’t full develop, but add plenty of bite. They meld very well with the grapefruit flavor. The finish is drying, but also a little sugary in natural way. Definitely solid.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster. Pours a medium, well retained, white head, over a hazy, dark gold (SRM 6) body......nose is grapefruit, lime, light malt cereal, balance to the hops.....taste is slightly sweet with light cereal, heavy grapefruit notes, light lime, leading to a strong citrus bitter finish.....mouth feel, medium body, slightly sticky, minimal alcohol, light tingle from carbonation. The goal of the brewer was a heavy citrus toned IPA. This goal has been achieved, at the low cost of a slightly unbalanced IPA with the hops in absolute ascendancy. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

pours bright orange with a small soapy white head and sparse lacing. This has a huge grapefruit presence. Very nice hoppy g rapefruity flavors not much balance but thisbis a beer for that. Long hoppy bitter rind grapefruit finish. Very nice!

Hazy orange with a thin and sticky white head. Aroma of grapefruit zest and grassy hop tones. The flavor has a nice sweet juiciness with grapefruit zest and rind bitterness, and a dry citric hop resin and mild bitterness. Semi-dry overall.

From a shared growler at trivia. Thanks Beert. It was fairly dark at the backyard event so I couldn’t really see it. My concern was an overpowering grapefruit bomb but this was far from that. It was quite modest in that regard and served to enhance the citrus hops nicely. This had a fairly big yeast profile with rich malts and bread.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap - lightly hazy straw color - flavor and aroma are actually solid, with the citra hops and lean malt sweetness working well together, but the grapefruit, rather than adding to this, kind of gets in the way - would like to try this without the fruit.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Strange poured a hazy orange amber with a small lasting ivory head. Aromas of bread, grapefruit, orange zest and light earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, grapefruit, light orange zest and a hint of pine with a smooth dry bitter lingering grapefruit finish.
