4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Multiple pours at GABF. Easily one of my favorite beers this year and the guys at Stone know how to give you a good pour. Appearance is clear golden orange with a big frothy white head and great lacing. The smell is huge grapefruit juice, candied oranges, cedar, a touch of grass, and clean malt - really just amazing grapefruit juice. Taste is again big juicy grapefruit, oranges, candied fruits, lime, citrus notes, and biscuit with a huge bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Literally tastes like fresh squeezed grapefruit juice. Awesome!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
