A Generous 16oz pour on tap @ WOB in Cherry Creek, CO
A – Bright, translucent orange, red hues around the edges, much more orange than I have seen in others of the style. Head is tall and off white, lacing left behind is sticky and clings nicely.
S – Fresh, tart grapefruit notes, really nice citrus tones here, not overly sweet, the citrus tones are fresh and tart. Little bit of pine comes through as well.
T – Fresh juice notes, grapefruit, clementine. Quite resinous and dry, more reminiscent of the rind and pith of the citrus rather than the flesh. Nice and complex, some balancing notes of pine as well.
M – Medium-Full body, quite dry and tart which is nice, this is no where near cloying which I feared it may be. Great bitter and drying finish.
O – Saw grapefruit slam on the menu and had to have it, this is a great IIPA, the citrus notes are out of the norm for the style, truly a great beer here. I had absolutely no clue Stone was behind this until I came on BA to look 'er up.

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.

3.55/5 rDev -10.8%
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.
