I'm always excited about a special release from Stone and this one's no exception. This offering begins by pouring a handsome but unremarkable golden straw color with an almost greenish hue. It poured with a generous thick foamy white head that gave way to a offwhite film and substantial lacing. The aroma is very citrusy (obviously) with hoppy pine and resin notes and a little malt to offset the bitterness. The flavor follows suit. Super bitter tons of citrus and very very refreshing. It is a simple ipa and rather one note but that one note is damn good. Keep it up Stone!!!

Golden Honey color, light wheat, slight carbonation and a slight head. Very, in-your-face grapefruit/citrus smell. I small hint of dark corn syrup bordering on molasses on the nose as well. Very hoppy/grapefruit juice on the palate. Definitely some bitterness but nothing crazy. Minimal maltiness but this doesn't take away from the beer, especially considering the 90+ IBU. Overall very crisp, refreshing and pretty easy drinking but the grapefruit presence and hops are there throughout.

This one was such a huge surprise for me! So fresh and delicious! The aroma was very nice with the scent of a freshly squeezed grapefruit. But, the flavor was sensational! Fresh grapefruit juice meets a perfect fresh hop balance! The mouthfeel was fantastic as well and everything you could hope for from a big IPA. What a combination this was! I've tried Pliny, Alpha King, Zombie Dust, Permanent Funeral, Nugget Nectar, Hopslam and a bunch others. I'd honestly have to say this is a t top 5 IPA for me hands down! Wonderful!

This is a great beer, hope they make it more often. I happen to like grapefruit, and my IPA's, so when I have described other IPA's in the past has having a "grapefruit" taste or aroma I take it all back about them. THIS baby does have GRAPEFRUIT. Really is a nice refreshing beer, light, hoppy and they used the kind of hops that really have a potent scent to them and as others have commented before now; it is very light on the malts. This is a bitter, but refreshing beer, not a lot of sweet available. Am I describing a "fruit" beer? NO. It has got that grapefruit rind (maybe a little of the oil too), contribution rather than juice. More like a good double IPA swallowed while someone shoved grapefruit peels up my nose.

All in all a very interesting experiment that I like very much, and I am drinking it on a sunny 75 degree day!

On draught into a goblet, thin lingering head and lots of sticky lacing. Golden honey color.

Slight smell of citrus hops and grapefruit, not overpowering but it's there.

Lots of hop and grapefruit Flavors here, a real citrus bomb with not much malt to balance it out but good. Lingering bitterness.

Not real heavy, moderate carbonation.

Overall, great IPA, heavy on the grapefruit. I appreciate what it is, and it is good but not one of my faves.

Pours a very nice golden amber with slight carbonation.

moderate head with moderate amount of lacing.

Definatley smells of grapefruit and citrus but also get hints of brown sugar or maple

The beer has an almost perfect bitterness. It is there but comes and goes and hits the palate in a perfect balance.

This beer is a super drinkable dipa. Slight bitterness well balanced with Grapefruit and citrus notes. Only wish it was 75 and sunny. this would make a super summer day beer.

This has been the best new beer I've had this year. The grapefruit is intense, and it's a bitter paradise with this IPA. The grapefruit could have killed this beer, but it didn't. It made it more intense to the pallet in the best way possible.

Wish this was a yearly offering.

Grapefruit, grapefruit EVERYWHERE! As you should probably expect, if you don't like grapefruit, and especially if you don't like grapefruit juice, this is probably not your beer. This beer is at its core a terrific IPA. It looks crisp and pure and clean like an IPA should and has huge, resiny hops on the nose and pallate. It's not overly sweet, and not overly sticky, making it drinkable and refreshing. Now add to that foundation a grapefruit bonanza. The nose smells like a fresh cut fruit served for breakfast. Bitter and sour citrus dominate the flavor, and lingers long after.

Overall, as someone who loves grapefruit, this is terrific. Bitter and sour, subtly sweet, hoppy and refreshing. I love it, and I hope to see it around for a long time.
