COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India pale ales harness the inherent flavor characteristics of hops to bring forward familiar flavors of pine, resin, spice and citrus. In some cases, those botanicals are so potent, they exactly mirror specific edibles. Such is the case with Centennial hops, which hail from the Great Northwest and come across on the palate like a mouthful of citrus fruit. The sensation is amplified with this, the first beer introduced via the Stochasticity Project, a double IPA brewed with Centennial, Chinook and Magnum hops as well as an immense dosing of fresh grapefruit peel. The result is over-the-top bittersweet grapefuit intensity that is at once refreshing and bracing in its citrusy bitterness.

Bomber bottle of Stochasticity Project. Pours gold-orange, white head. Slight grapefruit aroma, taste is bitter - more peel than grapefruit. Finish is bitter. It’s a bitter one, if you like that.

Bottle. Pours a clear, copper color with a nice off white head. Very strong grapefruit aroma. Some light citrus notes and some hops, but very much grapefruit. Dry taste with a lot of citrus and grapefruit flavors. Almost masks the hops. Dry, tart finish. But very, very good.

Draft at Caliente in Pittsburgh where it’s listed as Stone Stochasticity Project Grapefruit Slam IPA. I guess this is the same thing. Overt tastes of citrus followed by the hops. This combination seems to blend well. Might be a bit over the threshold for bitterness.

Bomber listed as the Sotchasticity Project. Bought at Belmont. Pours a clear darkish copper color with a medium white head. A fruity nose, clear grapefruit, some caramel. Rich, very drinkable, robust oranges, grapefruit bitterness, light toffee and caramel. Very good. Like the base beer this has tons of flavor and is super smooth and drinkable. Lovely.

Bomber from Trader Joe’s. Crystal clear light copper in color. Nose is somewhat sweet with some nice grapefruit notes. Good hoppiness up front. Some sweetness for balance. Not as over the top as I would have guessed. Quite tasty though.

On tap at Capone’s. A nice balance, the grapefruit works to give a long bitter finish.

Pours clear golden copper with a very soapy beige head. The aroma certainly has a lot of grapefruit with lots of zest presence. The hoppiness comes through as well along with cream, sweet maltiness and caramel. It has a medium body that is pretty crisp and has lots of fairly soft carbonation. The taste starts of with pine, grapefruit, spice and crackery malt. Then the grapefruit flavor comes into play; however, it is quickly taken over by harsh resiny hops that shows citrus, pine, spice, earthiness and is quite harsh and resiny. The grapefruit and tongue coating resin stay in the mouth for a while. Quite enjoyable.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Deep golden color with a medium sized white head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is pithy grapefruit with some pine resin. High grapefruit notes immediately in the flavor, giving way to pine and medicinal hop bitterness. Grapefruit peel dominates the finish, though one-dimensional in that it lacks any semblance of sweetness to balance the other flavors. Mouthfeel is medium, with an astringent dryness that speaks to the grapefruit inclusion.

On at Capone’s. Poured a golden color with a small sized head. Citrus, grapefruit, pine, and lighter caramel. Definite grapefruit / rinds.
