A - Pours a clear amber with a two-finger white foamy head. Heavy amount of lacing.

S - Aroma is not as pronounced as most Stone beers. Citrus with some sweet malts. Faint amount of piney hops.

T - Starts with a nice amount of sweet malts. Once the sweetness fades it's a big blast of bitter grapefruit and piney hops. Finish is all grapefruit peel with a nice lingering bitterness in the finish.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice creamy mouthfeel.

O - This is a rather enjoyable big bitter beer. Recommended for Stone fans and IPA fans.

3.35/5  rDev -15.8%

22 oz. bottle purchased at Cleveland Park Wine and Liquors in NW D.C., unknown bottling date but definitely recent, poured into my FFF Teku glass and drank while reviewing over an hour.

A - 3/3 - typical Stone DIPA here - amber- brown coloration, crystal clear on pouring from the bottle with a frothy white one finger head that settles into a subtle glass lacing after several minutes; moderate alcohol legs; carbonation reagutates on the swirl

S: 8/12 - lots of classic PW hop aromas - grapefruit, tangerine, piney, floral - but overall more muted than other Stone DIPAs like 'Enjoy By;" more detectable malt character on the nose than other Stone IPAs

T: 11/20 - on the anterior tongue, there's a huge slap bitterness that took me aback at first likely provided by the grapefruit peel and not the hops - to my taste buds. it was an astringency that I found unpleasant; in the middle of the mouth, the bitterness continues to oppress but there is a citrus and piney (but not dank) qualities that becomes more inviting; finishes super dry with little malt and alcohol detectable on my palate, which invites subsequent sips; unfortunately, the bitterness lingers well beyond the sip

M: 2/5 - moderate body, little hop oils coating the tongue but not a big mouth presence from either the hops or the alcohol

O: 6/10 - I'll go out on a limb here and offer this as maybe the worst Stone DIPA for me; it reminds me of IPA recipes of old in the pre-tropical hop days - that huge slap of bitterness is one of the major reasons that I didn't like IPAs at first, and still don't like grapefruit to this day; if you like bitter IPAs like Victory's Hop Wallop or Lagunitas' Hop Stoopid; you'll enjoy this but I'm close to drain pouring it and drinking my own all-Citra APA as a palate restorer

TOTAL - 28/50

nice looking typical ipa color, dark lemon-y fluorescent. decent resin-y head with an oily side.
aromas of lemon and grapefruit and some grass.
first sip is of some malty toffee sweetness, with the grapefruit following after. some good bitterness but not as grippingly bitter as I was expecting. getting a lot more lemon than I was expecting, and much more malt than I was expecting. certainly an enjoyable brew but almost feeling like it's almost a novelty. maybe all the great combinations have been tried? this is okay, but not spectacular. maybe because I started my evening with a westvleteren? It HAD to go south after that? but seriously, not terribly bad. decent brew. nice idea to throw the grapefruit in there....
