3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
pint at willibrew, Finally get to try the VEG IPA. It does have a strong grapefruit flavor. Much more on the flavor than the aroma. Bitter finish, good mouthfeel and body, the right amount for a seriously hop forward IPA

Nice IPA from willibrew. A lot of citrus rind as well as a dank resiny pine hop as well. The malts are very mild with some white bread and biscuits. The finish is mildly bitter and pleasant. I like this.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap in a pint glass: Pours amber with a thin white head. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, resin, and malt. Medium body, dry finish, easy to quaff. Taste is not what it was last year, they didn’t add enough hops or something. Lacking the serious citrus punch, mostly a mild pine hop taste. Still good, but not great like it was last year. Oh well. Still a solid IPA

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Light caramel for the malt, heavy grapefruit and flowers for the hops, moderate soap for the yeast, with hints of date and pepper. Head is small, frothy, white with good but thin lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy light amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic, then finishes moderately acidic and heavily bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a lively carbonation and avery drying finish. Not a big malt presence in this IPA, but the way the flavor amplifies for each sip and the citrus-y hops really does it for me.

Growler shared by Miketd. Thanks Mike! Pours copper color with off white head. Aroma is a nice grapefruit, bitter, and flowery. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor follows the nose and has a perfect balance of bitterness, grapefruit appeal, some rind, and finishes semi dry. A touch of caramel and maybe some oxidation, but does not distract from the drinkability and enjoyment of this beverage. Thanks again Mike!

(growler) Small beige head atop cloudy dark amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, orange, some grapefruit, light bread/caramel. Taste is medium sweet, orange/grapefruit, light caramel. Very flavorful, and solid bitterness, but doesn’t seem on the high end in IBUs. Medium body, some resin.

This beer was very drinkable but also snuck up on me and knocked me out. Pours from the growler a hazy orange, amber color with a soapy white head. Aroma is all citrus, orange and grapefruit mostly. Flavor was more of the same, flowers, citrus but also some nice malt anchoring the back. Finish is lasting bitterness and slightly thick on the tongue. I enjoyed drinking this.

On tap at the brewpub. Hazy yellow/amber with a white head. Wow, that’s a big nose - very citrusy, grapefruit and orange, some peach and sweet caramel. Some parfumey floral notes come out as it warms a bit. Big grapefruit zest bitter flavor, floral behind that. a bit of pine. All that, and the caramel malt behind it still will not go quietly - it’s sweetness backs the hop assault with aplomb. Mildly dry grapefruit and pine finish. Nice lace, medium bodied. Seems far bigger than it is. Amazing beer!
