4.04/5 rDev +1.5%
Transparent amber color with a finger of fluffy white head that retains for days. This is a beer you can smell from a couple feet away -- the grapefruit is definitely there but I also get some tangerine, orange, lime, and sweet malt. The taste is super bitter all the way down with strong notes of grapefruit peel and lemon peel, a dry malt backbone, hop resin, and some sweeter tropical citrus to provide the only semblance of balance. This is a massively bitter beer, but I can't knock it since its main selling point is that it's brewed with grapefruit peels. It succeeds at what it set out to do.

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.
