3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Grapefruit-flavored IPA. Grapefruit strong on front and hits hard. Tastes better as it goes. Grapefruit overpowers the hops but slight malts can be detected. Interesting take on IPA but ultimately unnecessary.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Clear golden body. Big, frothy white head. Aroma of grapefruit rind, toasted grain, raw hops, resin. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Grapefruit with artificial sweetener taste, but clean. A little too much of the grapefruit juice going on here and some husky grain creeps into the background. As it warms, the huskiness becomes more prominent.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a thin white head that lasts. Taste is of pine, resin, citrus, hops and some grapefruit. Similar aroma. The body is decent, with a bit of bitterness and dryness. An okay beer, that falls short when compared to other IPAs.

tap at Dash In - Pours gold-orange with an off-white lingering head. It has a citrus and flower hop aroma. The flavor is bitter and full of rich citrus with a solid malt background. Citrusy bitterness lingers on the palate along with a hint of pine and resin. Very good IPA.

In bottle at Craig’s. Pours a golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit, pine, pineapple and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Mildly bitter. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from BevMo. Golden in color with some orange. Nice nose of hoppy grapefruit. Dry and a little spiced at first. Trails off into a bit of fruitiness, maybe something tropical. A bit of sweetness, finishing with a dry, sharp grapefruit peel taste. My bottles were 6.2% ABV.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light in color for American IPA; small light frothy white head: syrupy grapefruit aromas; like biting into a grapefruit. Interesting and unique.

Widmer Brothers Rotator Series Shaddock IPA - Orange-gold with small-ish head and very little lacing. Unmistakable fresh grapefruit aroma - great citrus smell that’s thankfully not also overloaded with pine as some grapefruity IPAs tend to be. Taste is also big grapefruit with some mellow malt coming through in the finish. While pretty one-dimensional, it does nail the grapefruit dimension well.
