Poured into a snifter/wine glass/tulip hybrid
A - BEAUTIFUL copper/blood orange sunset, one finger fluffy white head and some sugar legs
S - wow, GRAPE FRUIT (slammed me in the nose, seriously!), sugar, soil, wet hops, kush, sharp bite of citrus and mostly grapefruit rind, baked/roasted malts, booze, floral perfume and a bright sunshiny mountain morning!
T - Grapefruit (with all of the wonderfully bitter sweetness), some nice booze, sugar, huge malts, HUGE citrus hops, pine, mango, slight pineapple, slight floral, fresh cut grass, mary jane and the great outdoors!
M - Medium to full body, well balanced (hops is over the top but nice), Good complexity and a long sugary hoppy goodness
D/O - Even being over the top with citrus and hops, this beast is refreshing, crisp, very clean, and all together tasty! I could rock this dude on the regular for sure! I bet with a wax cap, this dude could last years. Hops would calm down but maybe be even more gorgeous and the malt would be even more sexy!
Final thoughts - at $7 a pop and 8+ abv, this dude is a hop (specifically citrus hop) bombers dream! Tread lightly and often!

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
