Stone Brewing Co. ‘Stochasticity Project Grapefruit Slam IPA’ Craft Beer Review

Stochasticity-Project-Grapefruit-Slam-IPA-Label

Brewed by Stone Brewing Co.

$7.99/Bomber

Style: American Double/Imperial IPA

8.20% ABV

Serve at 45-48°

Availability: Rotating

Enjoyed from a tulip glass

A: Pours a hazy amber with two fingers of frothy white head. Dense lacing that coats the glass to the end.

S: Dominating, but still not overpowering grapefruit notes, more like the rind than the meat. Grassy, floral, peach/apricot with a mellow caramel presence.

T: Lots of grapefruit and hops on the front end, but the lighter caramel malts are commanding as well. Piney, herbal, extremely acidic in the middle.

M: Medium to light-bodied. Resinous and very acidic.

O: Stone has far too many impressive IPA/DIPAs too stick with this one. If not for the crippling acidity and bitterness, this would still be “just okay”. Interesting effort, but I’ll stick to Stone’s high points.
