22 oz bomber from CM. Poured into a tulip glass.
A - clear golden orange with ruby red highlights. A one finger head with good lace retention.
S - hops, crisp and clear, with....as you might guess, grapefruit
T - much of the same, with hints of pine and grains. The malt bill, while restrained, is present mid-swig. Remember the word swig? Say it with me....swig.
The heat is masked, and the grapefruit is all present.
M - Solid. Starts out a tad sharp, but as it warms, it trends toward creamy.
O - Hats off to "beer guy" at CM. I mistakenly did not get his name, but he offered a hand with getting my numerous selections to the register and pointed this gem out on the way.

22 oz bottle. Pours clear golden orange with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is sugary bready malts and tropical fruit / grapefruit.
The flavor is a little sweet fruity bready malt followed by a pretty big resiny bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with light carbonation.
Overall, a nice IPA, but not as good as I thought it sounded.

Bottle share at Proof done side-by-side with Proof's Guru IPA blended with Apollo aged on grapefruit. Pale straw in color with very little head. Big grapefruit and orange citrus with some tropical fruit in the aroma. Taste is spicy/citrus combo with a fair malt backbone. High carbonation (despite little head) and medium body. I enjoyed the Proof considerably more.

22oz brown bomber with a freshness date.
Stunningly tight and sticky lacing on top of this hazed out pale amber brew. Big bag of smashed grapefruits rush the nostrils, hints of alcohol and hops within. My palate is simply being abused by the onslaught of grapefruit and hops, the alcohol is clean and quite warming. Some light bready tones underneath but the finish is just more lingering grapefruit and hops.
Slam? This is a Smackdown, thanks Stone for this one and keeping things fun.
