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 loverís dream!

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.

Aroma of grapefruit, tangerine, peach, taste is grapefruit, very fruity, nice malt backbone, slightly juicy, really good stuff. Overpriced though.

Taste poured from a bomber on the bus at the BeerCraft 2nd Anniversary Party in August (based on notes): Grapefruit aroma, some grapefruit and blunt bitter flavors, bitter, oily medium bodied, finishes a bit sweet. Thanks EdHops from norcal beer geeks for sharing!

Can... Strong citrus aroma - grapefruit for sure, but thatís not all. Peels from a medley of citrus fruits. Medium-bodied with buoyant carbonation. The flavor tilts far into the bitter side of balance, but abundant medium-roast malts make their presence known. Bittersweet, rindy finish. Can shipped my way by StFun!

16oz can shared by Dan P. at JohnGonk's sons birthday party. Poured a haY dark orange color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus skins, and fresh cut grapefruit. Taste of pine right off the bat, followed by caramel malt, fresh grapefruit, and citrus zest.

Pours a somewhat hazy amber with a smaller khaki head. Nose was quite subdued and malty, some citrusy orange trying to peek through the caramel malt. Fairly sweet, fairly bitter, not especially intense. Medium bodied, oily, grainy, finishing a bit dull. Not really impressed with this. Iíve had some good hoppy brews from Sun King, but this was not one of them.

Love all the citrus that comes through during the aromas and taste of this IPA. Acquired this via a trade and was my first from this brewery.
