Stone Brewing Company Grapefruit Slam IPA – American Double / Imperial IPA at 8%

Stone Brewing Company Grapefruit Slam IPA American Double / Imperial IPA at 8% ABV (US$3.88 at Specs Main Houston, 355 ml, packaged on 16-Jan-2019, best before 16-May-2019, acquired 3-Mar-2019, reviewed 31-Mar-2019)

Appearance: slightly hazy pale amber with one fat finger of loose pale ivory head, good retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: pithy and zesty grapefruit, resiny pine, grainy malt, grass. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, medium duration bitter finish. (4/5)

Slightly one-dimensional in its utter domination by grapefruit pith, peel, and flesh, almost to the point of being a Radler – but I’m a sucker for both grapefruit and Radlers, so it works for me. (16/20)
