Weyerbacher Crimson at Kite & Key

In the fifth installment of Weyerbacher's IPA project, we have Crimson. I unfortunately don't have any real information about this version other than it's in the west coast style of IPAs.
Big grapefruit nose, pretty appealing and clean. Flavor starts with the same pleasant grapefruit flavor, but was followed by a large amount of bitterness and a very dry finish. The bitterness lingered on and on after each sip. This was a decent enough IPA, but I found the bitterness just a bit too much compared to some others. The grapefruit was spot on though. It was better than the Indian Brown Ale version but I think I liked the first better. There's one more in their project and then they'll decide which they are making their new year-round IPA. It'll be interesting to see which one comes out on top for sure.
