Beer has a golden color with a nice head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Taste mostly hops with some tartness. No malt at all. Grapefruit and spice come through on the taste. Average beer. shigadeyo (3730) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2014
10/10/2014: Stone Grapefruit Slam IPA... Golden-copper color with an off-white crown. There is some suspended sediment. Grapefruit peel, honeycomb malt, slightly soapy. The flavor is soapy grapefruit, slightly floral, toffee malt; ample bitterness (although it’s very earthy, something just isn’t sitting right with me and it’s not going down well right now), but maybe not sitting well with me for the style. White grapefruit flavor and bitterness definitely dominates. Medium-bodied, slick and oily. This beer is MUCH better fresh. I enjoyed it the; now, not so much. I’m actually fairly disappointed and this beer is not making me feel well. I don’t think I can finish my share (bottle split 3 ways)... 22 fl. oz. bottle.

Poured from bomber a bright copper orange with thin lacey white head. Aromas of big grapefruit peel, orange zest, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, light caramel and floral/grassy earthiness. The grapefruit flavour 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. An ok double, but I had higher expectations. Shame on me. Jur (468) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle @ home.
Hazy with full head. Grapefruit makes a late appearance, more caramel with booze and liberal dry-hopping. italianjohn (3108) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2014

Golden pour. Grapefruit hop aroma. Fruit sweet May up front, bitter grapefruit finish. Very nice, I had this one once before and I like it better this time. slowrunner77 (11912) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 30, 2014
"This one just screams have me for breakfast! Grapefruit candy sweetness and some fairly aggressive bitterness in there as well. They play off each other well. A delicious one dimensional IIPA." sitzds (318) - - AUG 30, 2014
22oz bottle shared and poured into shaker pints. Clear amber body with a 2-finger white head. Patchy lacing and good retention. Very strong grapefruit peel aroma, with citrus juice, caramel, cracker, and herbal undertones. Taste follows the nose: grapefruit juice and peel play sweet and bitter, other citrus peel, caramel malt sweetness, and some hoppy herb bite compliment the intended thrust. Medium body, resinous texture, moderate carbonation, strongly bitter, dry finish. Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Poured from the bottle into a La Fin Du Mode stemmed glass.
The color is a clear yellow/gold with two fingers of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.
The smell is filled with grapefruit aroma and has a real juicy fruit flavor. The hops seem to be right down the center and pops several times. There is a nice lemongrass aroma that makes the mouth water for a taste.
The taste of this beer is giving the grapefruit flavor that was promised by the name. The bitterness hangs over this beer like a canopy with some touches of earthy grass flavor mixed in a grainy center. The bitterness comes back towards the end to slow down things like a speed bump.
The feel of this beer is medium bodied with a nice drinkable, refreshing feel. A great I PA that brings the flavor and is quite enjoyable.

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.
