Appearance: Golden and cloudy with a white head.

Smell: Very hoppy, citrus notes

Taste: A little metallic at first? Then bitter, with a distinctive grapefruit finish. The it lingers the stronger the grapefruit.

Mouthfeel: Very light and pleasant.

Overall: Grapefruit squeezed into a good IPA. Very good drinking and pleasant taste.

Appearance: Gold, good head.

Smell: Mild citrus, maybe slightly oxidized.

Taste: Citrusy, very dry. Some mild sweetness comes through. Definitely west coast style IPA. No more "grapefruity" than your standard DIPA.

Overall: Picked this up in Omaha during a work trip. Might be just a little old as the smell was pretty weak, but the taste was fine. Actually less grapefruity than I thought it would be. Pretty good.

A - Straw colored with white head and chuncky lacing.
S- Citrus smell comes through well with grapefruit being the primary. Piney hops also prevelant.
T - Solid, well balanced IPA with nice sharp hops and the tart/sweet grapefruit tucking into your cheeks.
M - Standard single IPA feel. Nice and smooth.
O - Very enjoyable. I wish I had it a bit fresher...6 months since bottling.

The beer does not remind me much of grapefruit peel, but instead mostly of a Stone hoppy brew, and I believe this is Ruination with citrus peel.

The beer has a punch of hops of pine and grapefruit and citrus peel, onto a medium malt quality. The beer drinks quite easily, but does not separate itself with the grapefruit that is hidden.

Poured out of a 22 oz bottle into a Boulevard Smokestack tulip.

This is not my style, not even a little bit. But, this is pretty neat, for a style that lately seems to be about how much hops you can put in the batch...so its all pined out, this is a nice twist.

Pours out a dark golden hue, with a thin head, and nice lace. A seriously hopped up aroma, with a distinct citrusy grapefruit aroma...faint malt note. Not heavy malt, but malty nonetheless. Very hopped up flavor to open, slightly malty in the middle, and finishes out with more hop and the grapefruit mixed in for good measure. Heavy mouthfeel, medium prickly carbonation. Overall not too bad, not my preferred style, but I'd recommend this for something different...word of warning, this is a beer that is highly nuanced, it could; easily be lost...it took me a while to figure this one out.

Pours tawny golden hue .. Bright orange. Reminds me of the look of blue moon with a frothier head and more cloudiness.. A good sign. Head diminishes quickly into mild white bubbles clinging to the surface of the brew. Aromas of light fruity breadiness of malt..reminds me of an aged beer or barleywine scent. Must be from the abv. Some fruit but not as much grapefruit as I would expect in the nose. Taste does not follow the nose in this instance as the bitter tang of grapefruit is prevalent here.. Piney and bitter..almost too much so, but opens slowly as it warms. Boozy indeed but well balanced. Mouthfeel is foamy and refreshing.. Digging it for sure. Overall a refreshing take on an IPA.. Stone gets this style right every time for a reason..they know IPAs.
