Bomber to snifter, bottled 1/23/14
Pours a nice vibrant golden orange with a finger of foam and great clarity. Retention is okay, as is the lacing. Mild/moderate carbonation stemming from the sides, not bad looking
Smell is a citrus hop bomb, as expected. Grapefruit, lemon and lime, orange and tangerine, along with a big dose of pine. Sweet bready malts come through in the back with a touch of alcohol
Taste is with the nose, strong grapefruit and pine followed by a lot of other citrus- lemon, orange, a bit of tropical fruit. Malt profile translates well, sweet and bready with a splash of alcohol on the finish
Feel is really bitter with a moderate body and dry finish. Alcohol concealed pretty well, highly drinkable
Overall a really great beer. First time ever hearing about Stone's Koochen Vagner project. Hope they keep releasing things as good as this

As would be appropriate, this has a pink grapefruit color with a cloudy fresh squeezed hue. The head was fizzy and white but held its shape well.
The nose has tremendous grapefruit qualities but it's a combination of juice, pith and hop.
The flavor starts with a nice grapefruit juice and grapefruit hop flavor but the finish is a deeply herbal hop flavor. The hop flavors near the end remind me of so many Stone products with an earthy, grassy, chivey and dank quality.
The feel is quite tangy and light but does have a strong astringency.
This tastes like an IPA made by Stone with grapefruit juice, which is exactly what it is.
Serving type: on-tap
