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

GTAEgeek (1202) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 9, 2013
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.

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle... Pours mostly clear and deeply golden with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. There are loads of grapefruit resin and spicy hops in the bouquet. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor is rindy and bittersweet. Lengthy, bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

fiulijn (14381) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2014
Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Hazy deep blond color with creamy head, nice lace. The most prominent aroma is cereals; but that is also a sign of unfresh IPA. The malt flavor is nice, with moderate fruitiness and sweetness; it also has a decent hop character, fruity; light cereals.
It doesn’t appear to be at its prime.

Ragnampiza (386) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAR 31, 2014
650 ml bottle from Portale Birra, served in a pint glass. Bottled on 02-09-2013. Dark sunrise orange, pretty hazy, with a nice, fluffy, persistent and forever lasting yellow-ish head. Great lacing. Dank and tropical aroma, citric and pungent, not exactly fresh but that’s expected. Some light notes of caramel malts, brown sugar and pine needles. Slightly herbal and resiny taste, sticky and still quite hoppy. Pretty well balanced between a slightly astringent bitterness, and a caramel / mou candy sweetness. Some mild alchool presence, but almost imperceptible. Average carbonation, on the higher side of medium body, creamy texture. For a 6 months old bottle, it’s pretty much glorious.
