Sort of waiting for this one mainly because of the idea with Grapefruit Slam. I know that hoppy bears do have that grapefruit aroma along with other citrus noses. And I have always appreciated the level of citrus in Sauvignon Blancs, especially any from New Zealand which have the biggest grapefruit nose of any wine, plus tastes like butting into a pink grapefruit.
The nose here was big, but really not much more than I have had with other big hopped bears. The initial taste was light and crisp , like any other real good hopp'd bear.
But I missed everything about the grapefruit here.
I liked this beer, but the name to me doesn't go along with the taste.

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
