Serving: 22 oz. bottle. Slightly hazy dark gold pour with a very small white head. Huge citrus nose with lots of grapefruit. West coast bitter and dry on the tongue. Plenty of grapefruit to go around with a long finish. Nice twist on things for Stone, but truly Stone aggressive with the hops.

The Grapefruit Slam IPA pours a mostly clear light orange with a thick frothy ivory head that lasts good while. The aroma is grapefruit, pine with a bit of caramel and bread. The flavor is predominantly grapefruit and pine but caramel and bread is also noticeable. Overall this is a pretty solid beer.

Draft at Madrones in Frederick, MD served in a snifter glass, light orangy-amber color with off-white head. Aroma of heavy grapefruity/piney hops. Taste adds some citrus zest and sweet malt balance. Medium-heavy body, moderate carbonation, sticky with bitter grapefruity finish. Lives up to its name.

Aroma is grapefruit, other citrus hops that are not overwhelming and sweet malt. Very nice golden color with lots of bone colored foam and tiny bubbles rising to the top. Taste is what you would expect - grapefruit and hops. Has a good malt backbone and it needs it as the hops are quite strong. If you prefer citrus hops over pine, this one is for you. Alcohol is well hidden. It’s hard to make a unique IPA anymore, but Stone has done just that.

Pours cloudy golden yellow with low white head. Aroma of grapefruit (duh!), citrus, pine, light peach and mango. Taste is fruity bitter up front, followed by lingering bitter finish, slightly astringent and medicinal. Not much balancing sweetness here. Body is light and crisp with soft carbonation. Oh, and the bitter finish lasts forever.

22oz bottle. Pale orange color, hearty appearance. Smells like a West Coast IPA. Loads of citrus in the nose. Flavor of bitter hops, loads of citrus rind. Lingering bitterness. Lots of bitter flavor, harsh taste. (4127)

Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat Pours a clear copper with orange tinge. Big white head. Good lacing. The nose is very very hoppy with lots of grapefruit. Resinous body. Flavor is rich malts with a ton of hops. The grapefruit is dominate but there is tropical fruit. Long dry bitter finish. Simply fantastic.

Meh...this is okay. The name is stupid first off. The beer is extremely average at best. It’s just okay. Some grapefruit juice but not much going on. Taste is okay. Bitter with a little grapefruit, nothing else. Over priced for the taste. Quality isn’t a question but the taste isn’t there.

Pours a warm hazy orange, white head. Aroma is massive grapefruit, bitters, sweet caramel, old citrus rind. Super sweet and very much overly bitter at the same time, semi refreshing.. Like chewing grapefruit rind on back end. Med mouthfeel and highly carbonated.
