Though I don't have any data or anything to back this up, I always thought that grapefruit-heavy IPAs were a midwest thing. A big, fat, white guy thing, to be specific. We don't care about balance. We want something extreme. The aroma's got to be enough to overpower the fumes of the nacho cheese sauce that's usually clinging to our neckbeards. It also must get us drunk enough so that we forget about the hideousness of our wives.

So, hey, what's the late-sipping, muslim-kissing taxlovers over in California got to say about hideously unbalanced grapefruit flavored IPAs?

This is a pretty good iteration, actually. The aroma is intentionally unbalanced, and the hops are equal parts green and tart citrus. Tastes the same, but with a little bit of crackeriness on the very back end makes it tastes like beer, as opposed to hop tea.

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.
