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.

You know, the grapefruit isnt such a bad idea. It makes a dry beer a little more juicy, and it makes a spicy beer like this one a little more lively on the other end of the spectrum. Bright and well-hopped. The malts are a bit mushy and plain. Damp palate.

Poured orange with fluffy head from the bottle. Sweet and citrus smell. Bitter and flat taste, but a good fruity taste. Would have again and better than I thought it would be

Aroma is pine/grapefruit and a grassy/bitter/resinous element. The flavor is grapefruit skin/a hint of pulp, a mild undercurrent of sweetness/juiciness, malts and a bitter and tangy finish.

Grapefruit-flavored IPA. Grapefruit strong on front and hits hard. Tastes better as it goes. Grapefruit overpowers the hops but slight malts can be detected. Interesting take on IPA but ultimately unnecessary.

Draft. Clear golden body. Big, frothy white head. Aroma of grapefruit rind, toasted grain, raw hops, resin. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Grapefruit with artificial sweetener taste, but clean. A little too much of the grapefruit juice going on here and some husky grain creeps into the background. As it warms, the huskiness becomes more prominent.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a thin white head that lasts. Taste is of pine, resin, citrus, hops and some grapefruit. Similar aroma. The body is decent, with a bit of bitterness and dryness. An okay beer, that falls short when compared to other IPAs.

tap at Dash In - Pours gold-orange with an off-white lingering head. It has a citrus and flower hop aroma. The flavor is bitter and full of rich citrus with a solid malt background. Citrusy bitterness lingers on the palate along with a hint of pine and resin. Very good IPA.

In bottle at Craigs. Pours a golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit, pine, pineapple and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Mildly bitter. Nice.
