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.

Poured from the bottle into a La Fin Du Mode stemmed glass.

The color is a clear yellow/gold with two fingers of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.

The smell is filled with grapefruit aroma and has a real juicy fruit flavor. The hops seem to be right down the center and pops several times. There is a nice lemongrass aroma that makes the mouth water for a taste.

The taste of this beer is giving the grapefruit flavor that was promised by the name. The bitterness hangs over this beer like a canopy with some touches of earthy grass flavor mixed in a grainy center. The bitterness comes back towards the end to slow down things like a speed bump.

The feel of this beer is medium bodied with a nice drinkable, refreshing feel. A great I PA that brings the flavor and is quite enjoyable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pale light fuzzy orange/yellow, not much head, not much lace.

S - Sweet malt and bright citrus.

T - Malt and BAM huge grapefruit and bitter. More peely grapefruit than hopish.

M - Medium body, ok carbonation, good balance.

D - Nice beer. A little strange as the grapefruit doesn't taste like your normal grapefruit hops.

I am in love with grapefruit and this hits the spot, just like biting right into a bitter grapefruit in the morning! Great smell as soon as you open the bottle and the great bitterness of a real grapefruit on your first sip and the aftertaste doesn't stop!
