One of our favorite breweries, Stone is based in Escondido, California. This beer comes in at 8.7% ABV. This was our first foray into Black IPA territory and it was worth the trip! Pours a cola color with a thick, frothy mocha head. Now's where it gets strange. Expecting something along the lines of a stout with chocolate or coffee notes, instead our noses are greeted with pure citrusy grapefruit nirvana! The taste is even better--100% grapefruit juice, with not much carbonation and a surprisingly thin mouthfeel when compared to the way it looks.
We give this black (!) grapefruit bomb 4 out of 5 stars.
