22oz bomber into a Guinness pub glass.
A- Beautifully transparent golden--orange color with a fluffy 2-finger head. That head is just off-white in color and leaves spotty and a nice fat ring of lacing. There's some modest small bubble carbonation. It looks yummy.
S- I barely had removed the bottle cap and could pick up the grapefruit right away. In the glass, the sweetness of the malts comes through. It smells sticky sweet from the malts and alcohol coupled with citrus hop bitterness. Piney as well.
T-Lots of grapefruit. It tastes like a halved breakfast grapefruit. Bitter, like I forgot the sugar. Then the malts kick in, just as if I remembered the sugar. Not as sweet as the aroma led me to believe, thankfully.
M- Rather smooth as biter as it is. Lightly carbonated, resinous rather than syrupy. Lots of hop bitters and lasting bite.
O- For me, it's an excellent citrus IPA. At 8.2% it comes in manageably drinkable, too.

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.
