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.

Light haze on this amber beer. Tidy pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and smooth with a little fine carbonation. Nice hops - nettley pine and tangy sherbet ciitrus. Finishes smooth with an intense hoppy aftertaste. Really like the sherbet character here.

Poured a light orange, very similar to honey. Smelled and tasted mostly of pine. Slight citrus tastes. The bitterness is up front and lasting. Great sipping beer

From a bottle, dated August 12th, making this one almost 6 months old. I wish more breweries would specify "Best By" dates so I could go easy on an old beer. Anyway - aroma is citrus and grapefruit. Taste is definitely heavy on the grapefruit. Not an overpowering taste, but tilted a little too much towards grapefruit in the relatively bitter finish. Drinkable, not terrible, but I didn’t want a second one.

On draft at the Brass Tap pours an amberish orange color with aromas of citrus, grapefruit, light pine and some spice. Flavors follow suit just a lighter version of it. Ok ipa overall.
