12 oz bottle from a random Food Lion. A nice, clear, golden amber with a froth of foamy beige head and lots of lace. Light grapefruit aroma on some pale malt and light citrus hops. Hints of grass. Soft bitterness, lightly dry. Clean and enjoyable. Very easy drinking with it's soft carbonation. Pretty, pretty good.

Grapefruit is mild and not overwhelming Too many of these types are gimmicky but this is a nice session IPA.

This is like the "Real beer" cousin of Leinenkugel’s Grapefruit Shandy. As soon as I open the can, a beautiful aroma of grapefruit and hops emerges, and I can’t tell where one ends and the other begins. Light bodied, very low sweetness, only moderate bitterness. Like most Session IPA’s, this is light-bodied and easier to drink than a regular IPA. I find the more I drink, the less I can detect the grapefruit and the more it seems dominated by the hops, but the grapefruit still emerges from time to time. The only downside, this tea has a rather metallic finish. I liked it and I’d get it again. I feel odd saying this though, but I want more grapefruit...I am normally not a flavored beer person, but I just love the way grapefruit blends with hops, and I thought this one was pretty heavily understated.

MadRobin (2989) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUN 5, 2017
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Sparkling, amber-orange with a 1-finger off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of tangerine, grapefruit, honey, pale malt and a touch of pine resin. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, light pine resin and honey. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. Bright and fruity, but it has more the character of fruit juice than of hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
