Pours a mostly clear orange, with a slight chill haze, and a one finger white head with good retention and lacing. The aroma has a huge blast of grapefruit, with some orange juice, citrus zest, and some sweet malt.

Taste much like it smells with grapefruit, orange juice, citrus zest, white pith, and a sweet malt backbone. The grapefruit flavor is front and center, and the name Grapefruit Slam is appropriate, I can taste the grapefruit peelings listed on the label.

Medium bodied, crisp, with moderate carbonation. Has a grapefruit aftertaste which is no problem for me, since I like grapefruit. I recommend trying this beer, especially if you like grapefruit as much as I do.

Appearance: Golden straw in color, average head retention. Nice voluminous head with thick, patchy lacing. Clear and filtered. Excellent lacing.

Nose: 7-up, lemon and lime, lots of citrus, juicy grapefruit, mild carmel sweetness in the end. A very nice clean nose.

Taste: Citrus and grapefruit right up front. Clean and citrusy, lots of dry hopped flavor and bitterness. Very well balanced. Frothy and slightly malty in the middle.

Notes: This is an excellent concept for a "brewery within a brewery". Great job!

22oz bomber split with buddy. Poured into a tulip

A- light orange color, decent 2 finger head with fairly good lacing

S- piney and floral with a slight citrus smell as well, did not really pick up much grapefruit on the nose at all

T- fairly decent amount of grapefruit as it warms up, but the first taste i didnt really pick up that much. Not too sweet as I expected it would be given the name, fairly drinkable for the ABV too.

M- sticky and smooth, lightly carbonated.

O- Ok I tried it, but for $10 bomber I will never buy it again. Stone has to stop with these crazy priced bombers for stuff that isnt that special.

22 picked up tonight at the COOP for a seemingly pricey $7... Pours with a short lived white head... little to no lacing... cap is spotty at best... the brew however is a polished golden... pretty, but needs work.

Nose seems spot on for a massively hopped So-Cal DIPA... grapefruit zest is certainly present, but honestly, IMO this leans toward a well done DIPA with the citrus just adding some background character.

Flavor is MUCH more grapefruit centric... pithy and a little oily.. moves into the hops easily but the pithy (almost English marmalade) notes seem a little too much and overpowering.

Very interesting.... would have been fine without the citrus zest and it works IMO but gets pretty unbalanced on the palate.

Glad I got a chance to sit and enjoy it by myself... but I doubt I will buy it again.

on tap at greyhound in la, but sadly served in the puny 8 oz format. olden amber in color, the beer left white lacing. subtle down the sides of the glass. aroma is less enticing on the initial sniff as i would have hoped. some subtle citrus with grainy notes and grapefruit skin in the background. on the palate i get the grapefruit slam; more white than red grapefruit on this brew, plus bracing bitterness on the finish. cant taste the 8.2%, which is good and bad. pleasing and dry overall.
