Bottle. Similar to the rotator in the series, Well made IPA but nothing distinguished from any other, Maybe I just can’t tell the difference between the different variety of hops

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Pours a clear amber gold with an off white pinestripe.
Aroma: Grapefruit oil, tropical fruit and light sweetness.
Taste: Pungent earthy hops, pale malt, grapefruit bitterness. Finishes earthy bitter and dry.
Mouthfeel: Astringent medium bodied with rough carbonation.
Overall: It’s hard to tell where the hops end and the grapefruit peel begins with this beer. It’s well crafted (the malt base is solid), but a bit too astringent for me to want to have a second one.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma is very grapefruity, and it has an undertone of lemongrass to it as well. Taste is less passionate than expected. Dry, with some orangey hop notes, but overall cleaner and more drinkable than flavorful. $2/12oz

Draft at South Park Tavern. Really a mild IPA overall. I really didn’t get anything from the grapefruit peels until the finish with some pithy bitterness. Fine.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottled May 9, 2012. Served at around 40-45F.
Pours mostly clear golden amber with a two finger white head that leaves some lacing and recedes to a small foamy cap.
Aroma starts dank, herbal and a bit musty, then I can pick up a little of the the grapefruit peel, floral hops, some bready malt. Good to very good strength.
Flavor is grapefruit, orange, citrus, some caramel and bready malt in the middle with a decent bit of sweetness, moderate bitterness on the finish with a touch of alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, oily, yet a bit creamy, moderate carbonation.
Nice easy-drinking IPA. Good flavor, aroma is a bit odd with the musty notes, though.

Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. Very good brew.

Lots of citrus grapeqfruit in the aroma. Very citrusy and a bit dry at the same time. Sticks on the tongue a tad too long but at the least the nose lasts.

Apricot colored pour, white head. Aroma is sweet malt, citrus peel, grassy hops. Flavor is a nice mix of strong hops and caramel malt. Not bad at all.
