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.

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.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, grapefruit as they say, and some caramel and pale malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good IPA.

pauls_parade (340) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Yellowish-orange in color, some chill haze, and nice frothy white head that lasts. Citrus, grapefuit, spice, and a touch of melon in the aroma. Light and refreshing, not overly carbonated. A hop-forward brew with citrus and a grapefruit-rind bitterness to finish. Tasty and inviting. Not too in-your-face, but with enough interest to keep coming back.

TheHOFF43 (1756) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours a vibrant orange with white head. Aroma is floral hops. Flavor is floral hops, grapefruit with a nice smooth mouthfeel. This rotator series is solid.

Braudog (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle. Bright golden color with a sudsy head. Nice inviting citrus-blossom aroma. Drinks with a nice floral flourish up front. There’s a hint of grassy spice in the background, but this is a citric IPA all the way. (#4858, 12/16/2012)

Hazy light orange with a small, white head. Scent is grapefruit, citrus...very faint. Taste is mild, sweet grapefruit with a spiced tingle...malt.. Very soft, easy. Bitter is quite subdued throughout. A rather quiet IPA. Enjoyable..nice balance.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped 08:37NH-JUN2012. It pours a light copper orange color with a fizzy head. The aroma is nicely hopped with the floral variety. A little breaded malts too. The body is creamy and medium. The taste is bitter from start to finish with a vibrant floral and lightly lingering finish.
