3.6/5 rDev -9.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
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.

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
