3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Filtered orange-tan. Massive frothy off-white head. aggressively rising CO2 bubbles. The Rotator series has been fun and this is another cool beer. Not hyper grapefruit forward...I have had a few (St. Peters, Blue Heron) that were really big with the grapefruit. This is more centered in IPA. Iím not really a fan of the filtering with this one, it seems to thin it out too much, I guess they wanted to get the grapefruit taste clear for the consumer...which it still isnít. Bonus points for not putting this out in a six dollar bomber. A quality beer, just a little streamlined, a la Sam Adams.

Draft at Sugarmoms. Clear light copper with a fizzy foamy head. Juicy but dry. Big grapefruit pith and zest. Burned sugar cane. Bit peppery. Black tea. Lots of dry citrus notes. Well balanced but not overly complex.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Clear deep golden with a foamy off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, toasty British malt and honey. Flavor is rich toasty malt with a medium hop bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation and a clean, bitter finish. Great beer, the grapefruit peel comes across almost as Citra hops.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into a large Duvel tulip glass. Pours a clear golden hued color with a quarter finger head with no lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and pine. The taste was less muted than what I was expecting. I did get the grapefruit but no real hop flavor to speak of. Mouthfeel is dry and clean at the finish. Despite not being a hop bomb itís still a good choice for summer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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
