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.

Bright fresh resin, grapefruit but not overdone or gimmicky. floral hop aroma. Hop profile is citrus focused and it hits on all the desirable aspects of that. Head is on the thin side but with nice retention and lacing. I like this a lot.

pours a medium orange with a one finger off white head with some nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus peel (a lot of grapefruit), pine, herbal hop noes, sweet malts, and some tropical fruits. Taste is citrus peels (grapefruit mainly) resiny pine, herbal hops, tropical fruits, sweet malts, and some light bready malts. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium-long, grapefruit dominated bitter finish. Overall, a tasty, refreshing DIPA that features grapefruit nicely.

Pours deep gold into a tulip. White head with medium retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Resin and grapefruit aromas. Dry with sweet caramel and tropical fruit upfront turning to resin before the lasting grapefruit speel finish.

22 ounce bottle, bottled on 01/30/14. Served in a DFH IPA glass, the beer pours a clear golden/orange color with about an inch and a half off-white head. Head retention is good, and there’s a lot of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like citrusy (grapefruit) and pine hops, along with grapefruit peel. The taste? Good bitter grapefruity hoppiness is that this beer is all about! There’s also some spicy hops, sweet/bready malt and some earthy flavors noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s slick with a good amount of carbonation. I liked this brew a lot, it’s definitely worth trying. Hopefully this isn’t a one time brew because I’d like to try this again in the future. $6.49 a bomber.

On tap at Capones, pours very lightly hazy copper with small white head, impressive lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, mango, and bread. Taste is very bitter hops with some faint citrus notes. Smell was a lot nicer. Fuller body with light carbonation. Average double IPA.

Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus and earthy malt aroma. Medium body with a dry slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. This is a solid beer.

Danyel (1606) - Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear orange with off-white head. Aroma is faint but fresh malts. Has a very extreme grapefruitiness, resinous, long finish, crisp and clean, very bitter. Great.

4.1
jeremyh70 (1103) - Missouri, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Stochasticity Project. A very clear amber with a good sized white head and great lacing. Aroma of fresh citrusy and herbal hops with mild caramel. Taste is prominent citrus and grapefruit with some herbal components and light caramel. Big but smooth bitterness that is not overpowering and more balanced than I expected. Finishes dry with a smooth lingering bitterness. Medium bodied with medium high carbonation. Very drinkable. I was surprised how good this was.
