COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our favorite double IPA’s are all about citrus flavors, so with our Westbrook collaboration we wanted to pack as much grapefruity. hoppy goodness in there as possible to further bolster the hop profile. The addition of fresh grapefruit zest took the labor intensiveness of this beer another level but we think it was worth it and hope you do too! Cheers! Scott, Rich, and the Westbrook Crew

Bottle thanks to icehawk ! Pours a hazy orange brown with two fingers of sticky eggshell foam. The nose has a nice dose of citrus, obviously grapefruit, big sweet malt backbone. The palate follows with a nice dose of grapefruit but a heavy malt profile makes this a full round beer with lots of sticky bitterness. Pretty tasty but heavier than I expected.... guess I was expecting a little more grapefruit juiciness and less malt.

Sweet Grass Dairy’s Westbrook beer tasting. Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with thin lacy off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, and other citrus, all leading to resinous hops. Taste follows, bittersweet finish. Awesome, hop bomb.

On tap at the Brick Store Pub. Pours slightly hazy gold, with a medium, frothy, off-white head. The aroma is intense grapefruit, orange rinds, caramel, and vanilla. The flavor is very balanced sweet and bitter. Heavy body, sticky, and a little chalky. Overall, this is a nice citrus bomb of a IIPA. Nicely balanced flavor.

Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some orange and coriander notes. The flavor is full of oranges, biscuit malt, wheat and grapefruit. Great expression of different citrus flavors. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bomber to snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks Dogbones). Looks good; a semi-transparent deep orange with foamy off-white head. Smells solid; hoppy with notes of sweet pale malt and grapefruit. Tastes like it smells with a nice, refreshing mouthfeel. Good stuff.
