3.6/5 rDev -9.5%
Appearance: Light orange color. Head of about a finger on the pour and settled in to be very lightly present while drinking. Scattered random lacing on the sides of the glass. Light active carbonation.
Smell: citrus with a moderate amount of alcohol burn on the front. Pine hop presence picks up quite a bit on the body. Some grapefruit mixed in but nothing over the top. Light caramel malt toward the back end as well.
Taste: Lots of grapefruit right away. Surprisinged how clearly the grapefruit comes out on the front and leaves no doubt. As the grapefruit fades the pine picks up quite a bit with some moderate fruity hop tones. A lingering acidity sticks around thoughout drinking.
Mouthfeel: Bitter, acidity, and very sweet. Not in an unpleasant fashion but hold on to your seat.
Overall: The grapefruit really dominates this brew. Not as much in the aroma but it takes over on the taste and mouthfeel. Do not get a lot of the ipa underneath but some piney bitterness shines through. I'll try anything Stone and this was an interesting idea, glad I got to try it.

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.

4.13/5 rDev +3.8%
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.
