I got this in a trade with joe1510. Thanks Joe!
This pours a cloudy orange with a 2 finger head of foam with some good lacing. Head retention is average.
The smell is certainly big on the grapefruit. Behind the citrus, I can just detect some light maltines.
The taste surprised me a bit. The grapefruit is really strong here but there's more malt than I would have guessed from the smell. It still doesn't balance the hops but it's there along with a fruity flavour. The mouthfeel borders on medium, the carbonation is medium light, and it finishes with a sharp bitter bite.
This is an interesting IPA and pretty drinkable...I like the bitterness here; it kind of reminds me of Bridgeport IPA, which I'm very fond of. Good stuff. Aggiebob (1298) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 17, 2017

Aroma sweet and hoppy with bready malt.. It has a frothy head with a hazy, orange-gold appearance. Flavors of citrus and substantial hops. Light bodied and thick textured, this beer is very drinkable and kinda delish. vinivini (3009) - Gomel, BELARUS - JUL 25, 2017

Bottle. Overall is very strong on the floral notes, a bit much so for my taste. Medium finish, fairly smooth. Okay all around but not super impressed. rejtable (2839) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2017
