Punch Bowl Grapefruit IPA – Russell Brewing

From Surrey’s Russell Brewing comes their “Punch Bowl Grapefruit IPA”.  The beer pours a cloudy orange colour with a tan head.  The aroma consists of grapefruit, lemon, honey and floral hops.  The flavour is of grapefruit juice, grapefruit rind, lemon, honey, caramel and bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 6.5% with an IBU of 65.  This beer has almost hints of a radler with grapefruit juice added to the brew.  Even with the beer being a bit juicy it is a very refreshing IPA and I would bring pick it up again soon.
