Electric Peel Grapefruit IPA

Magic Hat recently sent me a kit highlighting their newest year round beer - Electric Peel Grapefruit IPA. The kit included a glass, bottle opener and of course a sample of the beer. The artwork on both the label and the glass are very fun, a "living" plug with hop cones for ears that is eating a grapefruit. 6.0% alcohol, 65 IBU. "Power of the peel!"

The aroma is bursting with grapefruit and citrus, a little grassy as well. Sharp grapefruit flavors show up first, very zesty, very juicy. That refreshing citrus bite really cleanses the palate. Bitterness is good but there is definitely enough malty sweet balance in the background. Spicy, a little grassy. Dry at the finish, lightly astringent, with just a hint of alcohol. Refreshing, pretty solid beer. Check it out!

Almost picked up a bottle of this today in a mix a six. I'll have to grab it next time. I dig the glass.
