Very delicious beer, went well with lobster tail. Great value for a great beer. I enjoyed the citrus And dose not have an overbearing hoppy flavor some of the higher priced IPA beers have.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber purchased at the brewery in Escondido ($7.25). Pours a clear orange-amber hue with two fingers of white foam. AROMA of fresh-cut ruby red grapefruit, wet pine forest, salty wind at the beach, sweet-ish tangerine, and more resinous hops. FLAVOR also full of bursting juicy grapefruit juice and grapefruit peel, light pine, with some caramel malts emerging nearer the end. Bitter but not overly so for such the hop monster that it is. Alcohol very well concealed as with all Stone beers. What’s not to like here...the lovely grapefruit elements of American hops amplified with some straight-up grapefruit peel? Well done, Stone.

Took it out of the fridge and popped the top. Instant gusher. Poured a hazy sunshine gold with a big foamy head.. Aroma of hops and citrus. Tasted of citrus hops a bit of pine. Caught the grapefruit in the finish which became more dominant as it warmed. Hoppy citrusjuicy bitter finish with a sticky mouth feel.
Pretty decent overall. $8 a bomber.

A golden IPA with a thin white head. In aroma, a fragrant IPA with biscuit malt with floral and resinous, light catnip and funk, very nice. In mouth, a nice balanced IPA with biscuit malt, citrus and floral hops, grapefruit pulp, very nice. Bottle at OttBottleShare July 2014.

Hazy gold with a fleeting white head.
Fresh citrus hops and citrus fruit nose.
Tastes like an IPA with a half shot of grapefruit juice added to it.
Bitter and crisp. Not a big syrupy Imperial IPA mess.

Big pine aroma, some grapefruit. A bit like other Stone dipas but with a more hop bite. Excellent

I’m a big fan of grapefruity IPAs, so this one didn’t disappoint. Favors bitter fruitiness to the sweet character you’d expect.
