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.

Clear orange amber pour with aroma of biscuit, grapefruit, and pine. Lots of grapefruit flavor with biscuit, caramel, and pine. Very nice beer!

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. Whatís 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

Iím a big fan of grapefruity IPAs, so this one didnít disappoint. Favors bitter fruitiness to the sweet character youíd expect.

Murky orange pour with a white head that is huge initially but recedes quickly. Aroma is citrus and malty sweetness. Thick, oily body with lots of hop resins. Definitely a nice grapefruit character. Lots of citrusy hop flavor but not really bitter at all. Sweet finish

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Super rich copper and orange coloured body with a bright glow and a thin, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of yes, grapefruit, rich malt, earth, alcohol, apricots and a rather perfumey and floral hop note. Medium to Full-bodied; Very rich bitterness definitely derived from the grapefruit instead of the hops, but a decent malt backbone and a strong yet regulated earthy flavour, but the bitterness is strong and some hops show through, but this is all about grapefruit. Aftertaste is quite pungent and is bitterness and alcohol - not much left in between and no real complexity. Overall, just like the name of the beer implies - grapefruit, hops and a pungent and powerful beer, thatís it on the label and thatís it in the bottle. Good, but nothing to rave about or wish for seconds of. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Washington (Foggy Bottom), DC on 19-February-2014 for US$9.99 sampled at home in Washington on 12-June-2014.
