Grapefruit Hop Nosh IPA by Uinta Brewing was evaluated under style BJCP style 29A, Fruit Beer.

Aromas jumped out of the beer, like unpeeling a clementine tangerine in the middle of winter. Notes of pineapple and mango were also present. With the addition of white grapefruit juice to this IPA, this Fruit Beer poured a hazy light orange into my glass. 

Head was medium to firm, off white with nice tiny bubbles. Flavorings included a lemon zest component, supported by a pithy, resinous bitterness. Bitterness seemed a little rough and somewhat one-dimensional. It finished dry and slightly tart. 

A very interesting beer, hard to identify with certainty the grapefruit impact, but quite drinkable and satisfying.
