COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale brewed with grapefruit.
Grapefruit Solis kicks it up a notch by taking our awesome San Diego style IPA and pumping it full of citrusy grapefruit goodness. No artificial flavors either – we’re talking real fruit. The hops are carefully selected to play off the zestiness and the malt is subtle in the background. The result is dry, crisp and deliciously refreshing.

Man they dialed this one into the click. Aroma is Citrus hops perfume and very volatile. Flavor is similar to Noah's butt hugely more expensive. The grapefruit is exactly perfectly matched for The Malt hops yeast the exact right amount of carbonation everything is just being on perfect really great beer perfect body and finish.

Aroma sure carries some grapefruit. Together with citrusy hops and crisp bready malts. Taste is sweet orange, grapefruit with light toffee creaminess. It's actually really sweet at first, but the peely bitterness that comes in at the end is pretty high, kicking that sweetness out the backdoor. That makes it a bit unbalanced actually, but was surely needed to kill that juicy sweetness.

2 finger fluffy, white head. Clear, dark golden coloured beer.

Aroma is pink sugared grapefruit and vanilla & lemon sorbet.

Taste is grapefruit, slight pine, lemon sorbet, hint of vanilla ice cream and then alcohol and wheat at the back.

Mouthfeel is juicy and creamy with a medium-dense body. Dry. Medium-low bitterness. Low carbonation.

Overall: What a weird beer. Was ready to bash it at first since I only got taste of alcohol and grapefruit, but as it warmed up, it began to show really creamy, vanilla-like notes along with the juicy citrus notes. I strangely enjoyed this a lot more after a while but it definitely has its flaws too. Very torn about this but certainly better than the regular Solis.

[email protected] Malmo - orange pour with white head. Sweet fruity with lots of grapefruit prominence, seems rather overt sweet/artificial, sweet malty backing, hoppy finish.

Extremely satisfying combination of a hoppy IPA with a light grapefruit taste. Leaves no sweet aftertaste but instead a very rich balanced IPA taste ---Rated by Belgiandean

Pours a hazy gold on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of big grapefruit notes, I know the description says real fruit, but still pretty potent and extract like to me. Taste follows, grapefruit on top of an old west coast IPA. Pretty tasty.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2017 Closest to Grapefruit Sculpin that I had. Might be better. I will have to taste them side by side.
