Another great IPA from willibrew. Tons of grapefruit and heavy citrus bring out a brightness and drinkability. The base malts are light and doughy and provide a light sweetness that helps not make it astringent. YUMMY boto (2294) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Draught @ Brewpub: This one pours a cloudy, orangish amber color. There was about no head on it at all. It has a nice nose. Grapefruit, tropicl fruits and a hint of pine. The taste is good. Some bitterness, grapefruit hops with a lot of the malts and sweetness coming through. A really decent brew. Drunkdietitian (23) - - NOV 16, 2012
Pretty light in flavor, had a hint of grapefruit. However, I just had a grapefruit sour candy and that tasted slightly better. I would not be able to finish a pint of this. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - NOV 16, 2012
On tap at the brewery, heavy grapefruit flavors the booze comes through a little bit auerbrau (3206) - Ithaca, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Big raging aroma of tropical fruits, papaya, lime, pineapple sauce, and lychee. Strong and incredible that it came from hops. Pours a super dingy dark amber, with no head. Flavors are just as spot on as the aroma, with a proper amount of malt sugar, not too much, not too little, to back up the big swath of hops. This really made up for the lack luster Flower Infusion and really drove home the talk that Willi’s specialty is hopwork. It shows here.

Growler. Aroma lightly resinous with lots of pollen-like floral notes as well as tropical fruits. Flavor continues to exhibit nice hop character with full caramel malt as well. A bit sweet, detracting from the hops, but still a nice one. LilBeerDoctor (4277) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Growler from the brewpub. Pours a clear dark amber with a small white head. Aroma of garlicky hops, grassy hops, tropical fruits, sweet caramel malt. Flavor of citrusy hops, hop oils, sweet caramel malt. Sweet and malty. A little heavy for an IPA, but enjoyable.

Sweet and full aroma of citrus and hops. This is a good swisher brew, with complex palate. At times, the hops are citrus-like and at others, spicy w/ a kick. A good IPA that gets better as it warms to room temp. elihapa (1554) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAY 17, 2008
on tap at brewpub. Color is a beautiful dark orange with small head. Aroma of sour grapefruit, citrus and flowers. Very nice. Flavor was nice blend of citrus and slight sweetness. Finishes a bit muted, but overall very pleasant. This is my favorite Willimantic IPA so far!) 3.7. Cletus (6351) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Pours amber with a thin off white head. Smells of perfume, pronounces resin, some grapefruit, dry malt. Tastes of dry malt with a nice resiny character and a hint of bitter citrus and perfume on the finish. Another masterful IPA from these guys.
