330ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 3 finger white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is big on citrus with some earthy notes. Taste is a grapefruit hop bitterness with some earthy bitterness as well and an underlying malty sweetness. Medium bodied with nice carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. A nice representation of the style and quite tasty and deserves a sampling or two. thornecb (5907) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Pours deep hazy gold into a tulip. Tan head tophats and recedes leaving gloppy lacing to form a meringue center. Tropical fruit and resin aromas. Pretty one-dimensional with sharp bitter earth grapefruit front to back and into the lasting pith finish. rumproasts (5356) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 26, 2015

Bottled. Almost clear, golden, fluffy white head. Hoppy, light malty aroma - flowery, piney, grassy, caramel. Taste is sweet malty and heavy bitter and very dry finish. Tight. Too tight, perhaps. Chudwick (3205) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - MAY 18, 2014

Amber pour, abundant off-white head. Aroma of candied grapefruit peel and whole wheat bread and just a faint whiff of dust. Grapefruit rind forward on the flavor, malts coming on a bit too sweet and caramelly. A bit thick on the tongue. Pretty close to being something really special, but not quite there. I’d have thought a truly hipster ale would be drier -- maybe the sweetness is ironic, and I just wouldn’t get it.
Bottle - big foamy head, medium copper color, nice size grapefruit hop aroma and flavor, decent dry malt backbone, good balance, very good pale ale
