look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Burnished gold body with a very abundant head of white foam. The beer is slightly hazy and has lots of visible carbonation. Lacing is great, leaving rings on the glass.

S: It has a rather light nose. I pick up some grapefruit rind and pine.

T: I get a good deal of raw bitterness without a lot of flavor. It's like eating the rind of a citrus fruit without the fresh taste of the fruit itself. It's just bitterness without any complementary flavors.

M: The mouthfeel is nice and dry, but the palate is overwhelmed with an unpleasant astringency and nothing but bitterness to hopelessly cope with.

O: Overall the beer lacked in flavor and originality. It had plenty of bitterness without any malt or hop flavor to reinforce it. Unfortunately I can not recommend this beer.

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.
