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.

    Pours a clear amber with a thick, fine-bubbled and rather persistent pale buff head. Hoppy, evergreen aroma has a firm tone of grapefruit and a hint of Mandarin orange. Flavor assaults the palate with hoppy bitterness and sour citrus - this is NOT for the faint of heart, or taste buds! If your mouth survives the opening salvo, it will savor the gentler citrus and resiny tones, and perhaps catch a hint of honey or a subtle note of malt. Texture is smooth and firm, yet lively and fizzy, leaving a grapefruit and slightly resiny finish. Can you tackle this project?

    As advertised, lots of grapefruit. Golden amber orange pour, two finger white head, some lacing. Tropical and grapefruit aromas and flavors initially then more citrus and bitter, some floralness and honeysuckle, nice malt offset, great bitter linger. Grapefruity even more as it warmed a bit.

    I picked up this beer from the Wine Gourmet in Roanoke, VA. I had high expectations for this beer. If you are going to call a beer a "Grapefruit Slam" it better taste like that. I'm even more strict about it when the brewery is Stone - a brewery that knows what it is doing. So here's the verdict - not a grapefuit slam. It was more of a hop blend with some hints of grapefruit. It was a well-rounded beer and a very good DIPA - just not what the billing advertised.

    Sampled on 3/17/2014. This Imperial IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, citrusy and grapefruity. A medium bodied Imperial IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and grapefruity. Decent carbonation. An IPA with a whole lot of grapefruit and grapefruit rind flavors. A touch of malt sweetness escapes only to be pummeled back into submission by the grapefruit again. As much grapefruit flavor in this one its not overly bitter. I mean, come on, it’s a Stone beer, its gotta be overly hoppy. It does not disappoint, very nice and did I mention the grapefruit? Hop bitterness hangs around a whole long time. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and grapefruity.

    An clear orange amber beer with a big frothy textured white head rising above. There's some hang time on that head. It settles into a thick ringlet and splotches of film. Nose is bready, citric. The tasting more of the same. Tart citric hops and sweet grapefruit dance well. Medium bodied, crisp and effervescent.

    This ine 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.

    22 oz bottle. Pours clear golden orange with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

    The aroma is sugary bready malts and tropical fruit / grapefruit.

    The flavor is a little sweet fruity bready malt followed by a pretty big resiny bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with light carbonation.

    Overall, a nice IPA, but not as good as I thought it sounded.
