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

Scopey (6871) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2013
Keg at Craft Beer Co Clapham. It pours hazy golden with a small white head. The nose is pine, sherbet, orange, mango and tangerine. The taste is bitter-sweet, orange, grapefruit, sherbet, tangy citrus, marmalade and light alcohol with a dry, citric finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Juicy, fruity and damn tasty.

mverity (265) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop thanks to a tip from thatoneguymike. Poured into a tapered rocks glass. Slight haze, orangey amber color with off-white head that held for 30 seconds. Collar holds for a few minutes. Aroma is extremely grapefruit forward, with what I assume is citra/simcoe/cascade. Some spice aromas, a decent amount of tropical type sweetness as well. Taste is also extremely grapefruit forward throughout. Some hop bite in the middle, the spice comes at the end. Grapefruit tart tang holds until the mid-palate. Reminds me of when I was young and used to raid my neighbors’ grapefruit trees and split on open to eat. Enjoyable mouthfeel with high carbonation and filled bodied for an IPA.

Garbageman (443) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2013
From 22oz bomber. Pours a hazy orange color with thin head. Aroma was all citrus. Taste followed with a mouthful of grapefruit. Balanced for a double IPA and the high amounts of hops.

Vestergaard (375) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2013
Pours golden, cloudy amber with an off white head. Aroma is very fruity with peach, a little lemon. Exotic - reminds me a little of mojito. Taste is pretty bitter up front. Slight pine or grass, but most of all this massive fruityness. Grape/lime, peach, pineapple, followed by a late bitter end. Quite a mouthful, but still pretty fresh for it’s high ABV.
