4.15/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottled 1/23/14 (about 3 weeks old).

A: Pours a clear gold. Tall, frothy and fizzy white head (maybe off-white). Good head retention but moderate sticky streaks of lacing.

S: Welp, grapefruit. Duh. Lots of of bitter, pungent grapefruit. Some spicy, resinous pine as well backs it up. No sign of malt. Duh.

T: Surprise, surprise, grapefruit. Followed by more grapefruit. Bitter, sharp, pungent grapefruit through and through. Grapefruit bombs everywhere. There is that spicy, resinous, dank pine that backs it up quite well. This spicy resin continues once the grapefruit has faded out, well into the finish and aftertaste. The aftertaste is spicy and bitter at the same time. Lots of super dry and bitter grapefruit peel but the spicy resinous dankness holds its own. No real noticeable malt anywhere but I'm sure it's hiding somewhere to help balance.

M: Medium-heavy, bitter and dry.

O: "Grapefruit slam" indeed. A nice highlight of grapefruit-y hops and actual grapefruit. Big, bold and bitter. Just enough accompanying hops to give it some backup and some complexity. Regardless, this is still a showcase of grapefruit and it executes it well.

3.86/5  rDev -3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

As would be appropriate, this has a pink grapefruit color with a cloudy fresh squeezed hue. The head was fizzy and white but held its shape well.

The nose has tremendous grapefruit qualities but it's a combination of juice, pith and hop.

The flavor starts with a nice grapefruit juice and grapefruit hop flavor but the finish is a deeply herbal hop flavor. The hop flavors near the end remind me of so many Stone products with an earthy, grassy, chivey and dank quality.

The feel is quite tangy and light but does have a strong astringency.

This tastes like an IPA made by Stone with grapefruit juice, which is exactly what it is.

Serving type: on-tap
