COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Grapefruit Jungle is a west coast-style I.P.A. Aptly named for the rich grapefruit characteristics of the three hops used to create it, Grapefruit Jungle is bursting with hop flavor and aroma. With the equivalent of one pound of hops in every keg, Grapefruit Jungle is a hop lover’s dream!

This draft brew from a beer bar poured a head of foamy off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent weak red brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The weak aroma was malt hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of fruity and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

Draft - Grapefruit peel and caramel. Clear gold with a light beige head. Bitter peel with some sweetness and a long finish. Lots of grapefruit peel, but not very juicy.

onceblind (6909) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Clear deep copper with a thin foamy white cap. Nice nose of leafy hop resins, a wee bit of lemon peel, and nice grapefruit zest. Crisp and bright flavor with grapefruit peel and zest right up front, but not terribly bitter, just balancing and crisp. Big sticky grapefruity hoppiness with a cara-biscuit bready sweet background with some leafy resins.

Can thanks to Andrew Rohne. This beer is great. Tropical fruit is all over the place. Of course, grapefruit, but some mango, pineapple, lemmon, and lime too. Great shit!

Nice pine needle and grapefruit aroma. Taste is resinous pine needle and bitter grapefruit, mild sliced malt to carry it through.

Orange-yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some big tropical fruit and pine notes. The flavor is the same with a lot of mango, pineapple and pine notes really standing out. Medium bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium mouthfeel.
