Bottled sample from happy Harry's. Pours cloudy pinkish orange with minimal head that dissipates quickly. Expected crisper taste. Was drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Part of a BC Breweries Discovery Pack at the LCBO. The beer pours a hazed gold colour, with a very thin white soapy head, despite a vigourous pour. Aroma is caramel, weak grapefruit, and grass. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavour is caramel, weak citrus, weak molasses, and grass. If I was blindfolded while tasting this....I would have sworn it was a very thin Scotch Ale....that’s how much I notice the molasses taste.

brokensail (11529) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 31, 2014
On tap @ Tap & Barrel - Olympic Village. Sort of turbid amber color with a white head. Smells like sugar and citrus peel. A bit of caramel and bready malts. Kind of simplistic. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side. Sort of a mix of grapefruit soda and candies. Half decent bready malt...some caramel and sugar. Meh.

Bottle. Cloudy orange colour. Grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit and sweet malt flavour. Medium bodied. Better than expected. Subtle, nicely balanced. Decent fruit beer.

I thought this was quite good. Pours a nice murky orange with champagne effervescence. Nice grapefruit aromas.. Not fake either.. Like sticking your nose in a fresh grapefruit. Flavors are bitter and refreshing grapefruit. A fantastic summer sipper on a hot day.

northropfrye (2302) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
A craft beer for people who don’t like craft beer and instead like lots of fruit thrown in on a whim. Not a bad beer really just nothing interesting or subtle, Grapefruit as advertised.

pintbypint (2696) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle pour at Edmonton Craft Beer Fest ’14. Dark gold with almost no head. Some sweetness in the nose, honeyish, but not much grapefruit. Taste has honeyish sweetness and a little grapefruit midway. Some peels in the finish. A little heavier and sweeter than I would have liked.

cmacklin (304) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 29, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a hazy, light amber colour with a short lived, medium white head. Sweet flavour of grapefruit with some caramel, malt and hops. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation.

Masterkush7 (566) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
Hazy amber body with a fair off-white bubbly head. Fresh, well balanced, but rather thin malty/hoppy aroma with grapefruit and bready hints. Taste is dominated by malty flavors. It carries flowery, bready, and fruity notes. Ends with a short bittersweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy, deep amber or copper rather and waiting for the cigarraette poop stink to dissipate you can vaguely smell some fruit。 the f在avour is decidedly grapefruit though and oh so very nice. A very nice grapefruity tasting beer if you can get through the grapefruit poop smoke smell of the other patrons... because after all we all know, that’s what cigarettes smell like is poop.
