Just one sip of this Red Hopped Mama conjures up the history lesson we all learned as kids. Everyone knows the story of Captain Shaddock sailing from East India with pummel seeds in tow on his way to the Caribbean to change the face of fruit forever, but Shaddock could have never imagined that his Barbados forbidden fruit would find its way into the beer glass in front of you. From East India to the West Indies, from Texas to Comstock Park, the short legacy of this 300 year old little fruit that could, continues with you ordering up a cold one.

Can: Cloudy, yellow-orange with a white head. Sweet grapefruit, grain aroma. Taste is sweet-tart pink breakfast grapefruit. Very juicy....... Really more of a fruit beer than an IPA......still, its pretty tasty, nicely fruity.... Enjoyable.

MrBunn (2770) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2016
Can. Pour is a clean gold with a thin head and aromas of biscuit and an almost sweaty funk. Its a very yeasty smell, but not very IPA-ish. Flavor is more like a grapefruit session IPA in that it has a bit of grapefruit (but not too punchy, kind of sweetened) and then pointlessness.

pinkzambia (1928) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 10, 2016
Tap @ Four Points by Sheraton - DTW: Cloudy reddish gold. Its almost all grapefruit syrup with too many malts in it. Terrible example of a fruit themed IPA.

Pours a hazy light orange color. No head at all. Smells a bit like earth and sour. A sour flavor mixed with watery orange juice.

rosenbergh (11132) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 18, 2016
Draught at the Perrin Brewing Co, Comstock Park, MI. Hazy golden color with a small white head. Fruity aroma. The flavor is sourness, mild bitterness, mild hops and some maltiness. Quite OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

can - Hazy gold pour, very citrusy aroma. The flavor is moderately bitter and heavy on the grapefruit. Not being much of a grapefruit fan though I enjoy some notes of it in beer, this was heavy on the fruit for me. Its still a fairly good medium bodied brew.

On tap at Champps Sports Bar. Cloudy yellow, almost no aroma. Nice bite on the taste, with sour grapefruit present. Full body. Ok, not great for me.

12oz can from Anderson in Dublin: gold pour, dingy white head, loose stick. aroma of orange, biscuity. tastes are grapefruit, lemon, acidic, lightly tart wheat (cant tell if its intentional). bit muddled for an ipa. goes down easy - though cant tell if any of its on purpose.

Maakun (4630) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2016
Tap at Seva Detroit. Murky orange golden with white head. Orange juice, grapefruit juice, apricot, light sweet malts and a bit of grass but mostly just a lot of juice, and not even in a very hoppy way. Under medium sweet, lighter bitter and light sour. Medium bodied. I wouldnt even call this an IPA but its great.
