COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
People sometimes describe the aromas and flavors of hoppy IPAs as “grapefruit.” Hell, why not use some then? Widmer’s brewing team used a simple IPA recipe and added a generous amount of dried grapefruit peel to the end of the boil. The aroma is a melody of citrus, with a slight spice undertone, accentuated by the use of Citra hops. The flavor is that of nice hop forward IPA with the bitterness of grapefruit.

Bottle. Orange with medium white head. Aroma is grapefruit and a bit of herb. Restrained flavour, not a hop bomb, and a good warm weather beer. The finish sort of sneaks up on you and takes residence in your mouth

Great bready, citrus aroma. Nice bitter hops and you think the citrus will give some sweetness, but it is obviously the grapefruit that makes it end dry and clean. Very well made, but I won’t be seeking it out.

Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours very light amber with a sturdy bubbly/foamy off-white head. Aroma of resin and light cat pee. Med body or better. Flavor is amazing. Citrus/pine followed by ? which quickly becomes very firm grapefruit rind. So we’re talking grapefruit zest here? And pink grapefruit or "normal"? It’s damn bitter. This has almost as much grapefruit as Pink Killer, but it’s so much more "normal". If you want your mouth twisted, try this one.

Hazy amber w thin head. Aroma is kind if stale hop, but lots of it w piney notes. Fruity, w lots of pithy bitterness and it is quite a robust, fresh ipa, despite what I smelled at first.

nick76 (4144) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2012
The aroma is very hop forward with the expected citrus (grapefruit) as well as pine and grass. The appearance is golden with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall a great beer.

Sampled on 6/21/2012. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, with some grapefruity and citrusy hops. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. There is a whole lot of grapefruit and grapefruit rind flavors in this one. The hops are grapefruity, piney and citrusy. Nice carbonation. A medium bitter IPA. Interesting combination of Citra hops and grapefruit and grapefruit rinds in this beer. Very drinkable. There is a lot of linger grapefruit flavors in this beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
