yourefragile (140) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Sampled on draft a few times during the Harvest Festival weekend, and a few glasses from a growler watching football on Sunday. Pours a pale, hazed golden amber with a dense, soapy white head that fades fairly quickly to a thin collar and some clumpy lacing. Aroma and flavor are like biting into a fresh grapefruit with a surprising lack of bitterness in the finish. Aroma is ruby red grapefruit, citrus rind and skin, not particularly sweet, artificial or juicy. Flavor has a little more sugary sweetness, but continues with fresh grapefruit notes. Pulpy in the finish with long lasting lingering acidity and no bitterness. Dry, crisp and balanced, body is exceptional for this series. I realize describing this as a grapefruit IPA makes this sound like 1 of N other beers, but this was remarkably unique and exceptional.

Draught. Pours a cloudy straw-orange color - reminiscent of grapefruit juice - with a large foamy white head. Aroma is floral hops, grapefruit, mango, and pineapple. Big grapefruit taste with caramel malt, bread, and some pine. Strong bitter finish. Full body. Medium carbonation. Heavy, bready, creamy mouth feel.

aleigator (831) - GERMANY - NOV 6, 2016
Pours an orange, hazed color with a decent, bubbly white head. Smells of a pleasant tropical crispness, defined by orange pulp, tangerine and lemon zest, topped off by a chunk of juicy blood orange and pineapple. Cakey malts, white bread crust and wet grass, together with a note of blueberry bush build up the subtle malt balance in this, creating a nose which comes very well together. Drinks silk, incredibly soft with a nice, juice accompanied hop bite, which gets wrapped up by toffee malts with a prevailing, long lasting dryness on the tongue. Drinks very gentle with no indication of the higher abv apart from the noteable malt backbone during the finish. Tastes of a nice lemon crispness, which gets a fruity quality due to fresh peeled oranges and wet grass with an immediate dry bite. The hop bite gets tamed by the fluffy, soft mouthfeel and bready malts, which turn cakey sweet during the mid palate. Develops a prickly kiwi sourness during the finish, soothed by blood orange and juicy, dry lemon with an ongoing, supportive malt foundation. Not overly complex but well brewed with an awesomly soft mouthfeel and a pungent, well nuanced hop punch.

Thus far a top 3 IPA I’ve ever had. Thanks a ton Adamchandler. Pours a solid peach colour. Light foamy head with lacing. Big citrus all over the place. Aromas of grapefruit, grapefruit rind, tropical fruit. Similar flavours. Great citrus bitterness and sweetness. I literally feel like I’m drinking liquified citrus rind. Stunning.

Tap at Bridgview Tavern, Tarrytown, NY. Pours hazy golden, with fluffy white head. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruit, grapefruit rind. Taste is light tropical fruit, citrus forward, faint bitter grapefruit rind. Slight malty cracker and a slightly sweet honey finish. Above average bitterness, clean, smooth mouthfeel. Solid beer.

Draft sample at the source. The beer is a cleqr gold with a white head of foam. Great head retention. The aroma has citrusy and earthy pine notes. Some vanilla peaks through. Finishes dry and juicy. Medium and soft carbonation. Really nice.

750ml growler fill on site consumed 2 days later. Pours a dark orange almost burnt, very hazy, with a nice off white thinly foamed head with proper lacing. Smells of hops, a bit of malts and citrusy grapefruit. Great bitter taste of grapefruit immediately and then other citrus, floral and earthy hoppy backbone. Drinks super easy and smooth with a nice full mouthfeel. Another hit by Hill Farmstead. Way to go.

From the growler filled on August 20, 2016. The pour is a milky looking pale yellow-orange under a white moderate head. Spice, herbs, and grapefruit round out the aromas along with a white bread malt base. Medium to full body. This has the tartness of grapefruit but the flavor tends to bring out the herbal characters more with the same malt sweetness underneath. Bitter finish. No booze.

rejtable (2343) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2016
So good! Growler from brewery. Pours hazy light orange with lots of foamy head and tons of lacing. Nose is grapefruit. Flavours of grapefruit, some light pine, some mango. Light bready notes. Taste is medium bitter, light juicy sweet. Full sticky body with lively carbonation. Incredibly drinkable for the abv, no hint of the hidden power.

Bouteille 750 ml. Couleur jaune pailel voilée, mousse blanche crémeuse et abondante. Arôme de fruits exotiques, agrumes et spécifiquement pamplemousse. En bouche, soyeuse, fruitée, houblonnée, amertume moyenne qui s’étend. Le malt qui fait sa job de mettre le houblon en valeur. Belle texture en bouche, elle est douce mais puissante en même temps. Des notes de pamplemousse certes, mais aussi des mangues, fruits jaunes et ananas. Finale en fruits tropicaux, amertume douce et houblon frais. Excellente. wow.

On tap at Pony Bar. Hazy golden, white head. Huge grapefruit, grass, citrus mango, pissy hop. Flavor is juicy grapefruit, citrus, grass, biscuit. So stupidly good.
