Poured a great golden, hazy body, 2 finger head, nice lacing. Smelled like it says, grapefruit, big malt presence in this one, bready at times, but for the most part the smell was citrus and pine. Taste wasn't as great as the nose, very 1 dimensional in terms of the hop profile. Mouthfeel was medium body. Overall, I wouldn't have this one again. I'm under the impression that anything Stone involved will have people automatically sucking their d*icks for reviews. This was a good beer, but not worth the price or flavor. This was okay.

A small white head on top of a perfectly clear, copper colored body. The aroma is full of grapefruit and pine with notes of caramel. Lots of malt up front with spicy hops. Finishes with pithy bitterness and citrus zest. Medium thick body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish. Not bad, but the bitterness is excessive to the point of surpassing pith and reaching full on aspirin harshness. Drinkable, but they really seemed to have grabbed some of the more undesirable aspects of grapefruit.

BOD 2/7/14. Pours a slightly hazy light amber with a full head that retains the lacing quite well. Nose is of grapefruit over sweet biscuit malt. Medium bodied to the heavy side with a smooth texture. Low carbonation level with no effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is well balanced and focuses on hop flavor rather than bitterness. It begins with a biscuit sweetness overlaying a robust grapefruit which flows into a flavor reminiscent of grapefruit rind. The finish is grapefruit rind with a touch of pepper. As it warms, the alcohol content is also evident on the finish. A higher carbonation level would improve the finish by bringing the grapefruit sweetness more forward. This one gets an outstanding by the skin of its "rind".
