Grapefruit, grapefruit EVERYWHERE! As you should probably expect, if you don't like grapefruit, and especially if you don't like grapefruit juice, this is probably not your beer. This beer is at its core a terrific IPA. It looks crisp and pure and clean like an IPA should and has huge, resiny hops on the nose and pallate. It's not overly sweet, and not overly sticky, making it drinkable and refreshing. Now add to that foundation a grapefruit bonanza. The nose smells like a fresh cut fruit served for breakfast. Bitter and sour citrus dominate the flavor, and lingers long after.
Overall, as someone who loves grapefruit, this is terrific. Bitter and sour, subtly sweet, hoppy and refreshing. I love it, and I hope to see it around for a long time.

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.
