Grapefruit Deuce Coupe DIPA by Garage Brewing Co. was judged as a Double IPA (BJCP Style 22A).

Moderate aroma of grapefruit and piney hops. Pretty standard in what you would expect based on the description. The malt profile is lightly sweet in aroma with bready with a low toasty quality. I do get a hint of caramel as well. The hop aroma is dominant as it should be and very classic. Low alcohol presence in the aroma as well. The color is bright gold with excellent clarity. It pours an off-white head with good head retention and lacing. Upon tasting, I got a high level bitterness and hint of sweetness to balance. The beer does finish dry and bitter which is good. It does have a low alcoholic warmth. The flavors are well balanced and classical for the style. The grapefruit plays a nice supporting role, and does not overtake the beer. I get a medium body, no hop astringency, and smooth creamy texture the beer. This is a very good fruited double IPA. The grapefruit is present and not overwhelming, still I could use a little bit more. The beer as a whole is refreshing and quite nice for such a bigger beer. I recommend this one.
