Good One!!! Kind of like an "Avery Maharajah Lite". Less bitterness, lower abv.,more grapefruit flavor.

Pours a hazy golden amber color into a pint glass. Average white head with a little better than average retention. Some lacing.

Aroma is a big grapefruit presence with some additional hoppiness.

Taste is good and bitter ( not a total head shrinker but a good IPA bitterness) with more grapefruit flavor than most IPAs I have tried. The addition of extra grapefruit, in addition to all the citrus hops, makes the flavor really stand out.

Interesting mouthfeel. Good bitterness, including that from the actual grapefruit flavoring. Crisp and refreshing.

I would easily drink this one again. A well crafted brew.

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.
