Thanks Kathy for sharing the bottle. Thought I might have tried this but I got this confused with Port Grapefruit Puncher, kind of similar names, eh?

A- Poured to a tumbler with a clear deep golden body. Head forms to about a finger with decent retention and falls to a silky ring. Sheets of lace follow this ring at the top and beyond that is spotty.

S- Not deep and pungent hop notes, at least compared to many other modern IIPAs and even other Stone ones. The citrus focus is super strong though, it may not be deep and complex hoppy but tons of citrus oil jumps off the top. Tiny bit of malts and yeast beyond that. A bit thin in a way.

T- Whatever was missing in the aroma is made up for here. I have never quite tasted a beer that really focused on grapefruit this much. It is both a strength and weakness but the aftertaste is absolutely pure grapefruit peel, flesh and all, it lingers. Beyond the citrus is just some floral hop hints and slight cracked malts.

MF- Moderate to even light bodied for a Double IPA with a silky, fairly creamy overall texture. Carbonation at a nice high crispy level and it accentuates those citrus oils and the creaminess of the body. Finishes with a moderate bitterness on the palate.

Intense grapefruit dominates the taste buds but it is kind of a one trick pony. The hops are not as deep and complex as Ruination or Enjoy By. At the same time, the beer is named Grapefruit Slam and they did what they set out to do, higher ABV grapefruit nectar basically.
