From a 650 ml bottle (bottled January 23, 2014) into a tulip.
A-The beer is nearly clear and sort-of orange-tinted golden in color. There is no visible carbonation. The head is a healthy two and one-half fingers of dense, tan foam. Retention is pretty good at about two minutes, but there is no lacing, which is a bit of a surprise.
S-The smell is heavy on the citrus and grapefruit citrus, in particular. No surprise there. Bitterness is medium and there is a decent bit of caramel malt, as well. I do not detect any alcohol. One dimensional, but flavorful nonetheless.
T-The taste is less grapefruit-centric than the smell, but this is still a juicy, citrus-bomb IIPA and should not be confused with its pine-forward cousins. There is also more caramel malt in here than I recall from other Stone IIPAs. This is a pretty big beer with nice balance.
M-The body is on the heavier side with an coating feel and lower-than-average carbonation that tickles the palate.
O-This is yet another tasty Stone IIPA, and for a beer that promotes grapefruit it delivers. There is not much to be had other than the grapefruit, but the caramel, malty flavors give a decent balance to a nice IIPA. This beer drinks well and would make for a nice early spring sipper.

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
