COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
People sometimes describe the aromas and flavors of hoppy IPAs as grapefruit. Hell, why not use some then? Widmers brewing team used a simple IPA recipe and added a generous amount of dried grapefruit peel to the end of the boil. The aroma is a melody of citrus, with a slight spice undertone, accentuated by the use of Citra hops. The flavor is that of nice hop forward IPA with the bitterness of grapefruit.

Poured a light orange, very similar to honey. Smelled and tasted mostly of pine. Slight citrus tastes. The bitterness is up front and lasting. Great sipping beer

From a bottle, dated August 12th, making this one almost 6 months old. I wish more breweries would specify "Best By" dates so I could go easy on an old beer. Anyway - aroma is citrus and grapefruit. Taste is definitely heavy on the grapefruit. Not an overpowering taste, but tilted a little too much towards grapefruit in the relatively bitter finish. Drinkable, not terrible, but I didnt want a second one.

On draft at the Brass Tap pours an amberish orange color with aromas of citrus, grapefruit, light pine and some spice. Flavors follow suit just a lighter version of it. Ok ipa overall.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, grapefruit as they say, and some caramel and pale malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good IPA.

pauls_parade (340) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Yellowish-orange in color, some chill haze, and nice frothy white head that lasts. Citrus, grapefuit, spice, and a touch of melon in the aroma. Light and refreshing, not overly carbonated. A hop-forward brew with citrus and a grapefruit-rind bitterness to finish. Tasty and inviting. Not too in-your-face, but with enough interest to keep coming back.

Bottle. Pours a vibrant orange with white head. Aroma is floral hops. Flavor is floral hops, grapefruit with a nice smooth mouthfeel. This rotator series is solid.
