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.

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
