Pours a nice golden color with a foamy white head. Huge aroma of orange, lemon, grapefruit, melon, and pine, Also a bit of hay. Huge notes of grapefruit in the taste. Lots of citrus and small amount of pine. Very bitter, nice hop selection leaves your mouth nice and bitter. Slight maltiness forms the backbone of this beer. Really nice mouth feel. Very refreshing. Awesome IPA.

Gold, orange, nice white head and retention. Sweet aroma like candy and grapefruit. Taste: honey like, grapefruit slam! Nice and firm bitterness in the end.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with firm white head. Nose is grapefruit as you'd expect, citrus and a honey sweetness. Taste is really bitter! Grapefruit up front and citrus. Bitterness lingers.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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)
