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. Citric, dank, and grassy, with light malty sweetness and a medium bitter hoppy finish. Pretty good.

12 oz Bottle at Memphis Meis in Ossining NY. Nice deep golden pour with a fluffy head. Hops, Grapfruit and pine with just a hint of Cinnimon keep this beer highly refreshing while eating NY BBQ. Enjoy!

Bottled June 05 so not old but not quite off the bottling line fresh either. Bright orange yellow, so-so head, scant lace. Smells like grapefruit (surprise) and hops, citrus. Taste is grapefruit, hops, a hint of malt to hold it together. Very, very easy drinking IPA and I thought it would be good since I liked the X-114 IPA. Overall, I’d buy this again. Not the hoppiest IPA but hoppy enough. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-18-2012 03:41:03

gpekar (463) - Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Poured a crystal clear golden amber with a tall foamy off-white head. Ther were lots of carbonation bubbles rising up in the glass that lasted for the entire glass. The was a nice fruity aroma with apricot, tangerine and orange, but not much grapefruit. However there was a nice mild grapefruit flavor in the beer with a slightly bitterness like the rind of a grapefruit. The head dropped to about 1 finger and left some light clingy lacing. The finish mellowed away from the bitterness and was morerefreshing citrus one.

Clear pale color. White frothy head. I don't detect any abnormal amount of grapefruit. It goes well. A very enjoyable IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - NOV 8, 2012
This draft brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light orange colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was malt hop. The smooth mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of green hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

You know, the grapefruit isn’t such a bad idea. It makes a dry beer a little more juicy, and it makes a spicy beer like this one a little more lively on the other end of the spectrum. Bright and well-hopped. The malts are a bit mushy and plain. Damp palate.

Poured orange with fluffy head from the bottle. Sweet and citrus smell. Bitter and flat taste, but a good fruity taste. Would have again and better than I thought it would be

Aroma is pine/grapefruit and a grassy/bitter/resinous element. The flavor is grapefruit skin/a hint of pulp, a mild undercurrent of sweetness/juiciness, malts and a bitter and tangy finish.
