Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber.

Pours a slighty hazy medium orange with a billowy two finger white head. Amazing head retention and even better lacing with a near solid ring all the way around the glass most of the way down.

The grapefruit sure makes its presence known in the aroma. Awesome hop notes with the Centennial especially evident. Some nice earthy notes in there too adding a bit of balance.

The flavor closely follows the aroma with tons of grapefruit along with orange peel and a bit of earthiness. A fairly nice malt balance although it remains well in the background. Bitterness is very high but it works quite well in this beer. The alcohol is completely hidden and a fairly dry mouthfeel gives this incredible drinkability.

Overall, as usual Stone does an amazing job with this IIPA. Everything is in balance and the flavor are outstanding. An amazing IIPA that everyone who loves hops should experience. (942 characters)

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. (388 characters)

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. (366 characters)

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. (489 characters)
