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.

Clear golden with a thin white cap head. Nose has a ton of bittersweet grapefruit zest with a dank grassy bitterness. Flavor is just as dank but with a zesty sweetness of grapefruit zest fruitiness. Very flavorful and fruity but also hoppy dank and bitter. Wonderful.

Dr_MedievAle (153) - Alabama, USA - OCT 14, 2013
On tap at Freshcraft in Denver during GABF. Beautiful golden body with ivory head. Nose is a very, very punchy grapefruit: like zesting the rind of a fresh grapefruit. THAT strong. Taste starts out with loud grapefruit, mellows a bit into a citrus sweetness, and finishes bitter, salty. EXCELLENT IPA.

On tap @ GABF. Golden pour with a white head. Really nice grapefruit nose. Pine, candied orange, some caramel, and a very dank, resinous hop character. Flavor is somewhat sweet with some caramel malt. Tons of bitter pine, big grapefruit zest, and some candied orange peel.

DocJitsu (836) - Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Pours clear, vibrant, orange-golden color with a white head. As much tangerine as there is grapefruit in the bouquet. Smooth, full mouthfeel. Gigantic tangerine. So much so, I’m surprised stone would call this a grapefruit slam. There is more grapefruit in the bouquet than in the flavor. Fun beer.

Grapefruit all day on the nose coupled with a fantastic tropical hop flavor. Deep amber with a low diminishing head.
