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.

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 (2550) - 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 (221) - 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 (501) - 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.

dfearnley (884) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle to pint glass Grapefruit, syrup, apricot, overripe mango. Dark amber, 2 cm head, lots of particulates. Grapefruit...sure, I taste that, some malt too, and syrup. For me, not a good beer.

bulldogops (1047) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
12 oz bottle from the Whistler sampler pack. Clear golden pour with a weak white foam. Aroma is grapefruit soda (sugar, not divulgent of hop character).Crisp mouthfeel dominated by sweetness of the grapefruit, mild malt character, no hop presence. 1-dimensional summer creature.
