Whistler, BC - on tap at Whistler Brewing Company. Hazy, dark orange pour, soft off-white head. Fresh citrusy aroma with heavy grapefruit accents. Flavor runs down the same path, nice and citrusy with a hint of vanilla. Crisp, clean mouthfeel. Rating #31 of my 2016 vacation.

341 ml bottle poured at home. Pours copper with no head whatsoever. Smells like grapefruit. Taste is sweet with a slightly bitter grapefruit finish. Decent beer, just not my style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Somewhat sticky and mildly sweet beach beer. Fairly high carbonation. Easy drinking.

GRAPEFRUITY. Easy drinking, is what it says it is. Beach beer. Nothing offensive, a bit sticky.

Tastes like grapefruit infused water. Weak, boring, uninspiring. No thanks, meh.

Murky amber with a thin head and visible carbonation. Aroma is grapefruit, while the taste gets more sugary and the grapefruit becomes just a citric hint. Hops gives a nice fry finish. More of a pale ale than a fruit beer as it isn’t too fruity, nothing amazing but tasty and refreshing.

Draft @ Red Racer. Amber and hazy. Really big grapefruit - not the most authentic, but bright. Bit yeasty, and a bit too much malt, but pleasant.

On tap at Nita Lake Lodge, pours a cloudy dark orangey brown with a small beige head. Nose brings out sweet grapefruit, like they added lots of citrus zest and sweetened it up. Flavour matches accordingly, with grapefruit zest and a sweet juicy quality. Not a beer of elegance but it’s easy to drink. Decent.

The aroma is strong grapefruit but the taste is only mildly fruity, with notes of sugar and grains, though the grapefruit taste grows more powerful with each sip. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
