a big 2 fingers of white head rises up, beautiful clear orange tone with a wink toward amber, lots of carbonation keeps this girl peppy, lacing grips like a crack starved crack whore - very nice
grapefruit ? er... yeah. under that is some really nice fresh cone hops type smell, hop oil covered in citrus jizz, really nice bright hop aroma to be found here, me like
really hoppy - damn! the grapefruit edges a touch off the massive fresh hop bitterness but not much, you kind of get more of it in the aftertaste actually, I feel like I am breathing out grapefruit fumes, the carbonation is a little less active than it would seem but the
mouthfeel does not suffer much, you are looking at a pretty good medium feel that has some weight to it, this is pretty brash stuff, the grapefruit does come through and in a way takes the place of the malts in terms of balancing this thing out
super hop flavor, on the border of being astringent but it just holds off, long linger on the aftertaste as well, the ABV seems to have more of a kick than the percentage listed on the bottle, or maybe I'm just a pansy
check this stuff out if you love the hop

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
