I calculate this to be the 4th addition to Widmer Brother’s Rotator IPA Series – Shaddock IPA. The Rotator series features a rotating lineup of hoppy IPAs. Preceeding Shaddock, is Falconer’s IPA, and O’Ryely IPA, X-144 IPA. This new is actually X-114 IPA brewed with with grapefruit peels.
People sometimes describe the aromas and flavors of hoppy IPAs as “grapefruit.” Hell, why not use some then? Widmer’s brewing team used a simple IPA recipe and added a generous amount of dried grapefruit peel to the end of the boil. The aroma is a melody of citrus, with a slight spice undertone, accentuated by the use of Citra hops. The flavor is that of nice hop forward IPA with the bitterness of grapefruit.
