Clear light amber with heavy hop aroma and flavor. But itís unbalanced with strong floral hops and little to back it up. Good overall, but not great.

New Belgiumís play on the Stone Ruination as the name suggests. A bold ale and enjoyable if you like the idea of a Ranger IPA with bolstered nuts. It is just that in my opinion. A very good brew not in the class of Stone Ruination.

Pours a clear bud heavy color with a pretty good sized white head. I could smell the dish soap as soon as I took the cap off. Aromas of soap, grass and citrus fruit. Tastes like grapefruit mixed with gasoline. Pretty fucken average.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Brownish colored pour with a white head. Smell is hoppy, citrus, grass, pine, etc. Smells pretty good. Taste is basically a let down with it being kind of sweet and not as bitter as I hoped. Alcohol is pretty ruthless as well. Not really my kind of double IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. Amber with small head. Pretty standard double IPA. Mild malt base with big hops. Seems more piney than citrus. Certainly not bad, but I have pretty high expectations for New Belgium.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crystal clear copper gold with a bright white fluffy head, nice retention and lace. Big cutrus and grassy hop notes on the nose - orange peel, peach and a touch of candy sugar. Bitter hops up front, with a gentle caramel malt sweetness to keep it in check. Medium body, lively carbonation, creamy smooth on the palate, and a crisp bitter finish.

I had a bomber of this and am glad that I didnít get more of it. It is good but the hops are muddled and dont go together that well. I want this to be a great beer but I wonít be buying any more.
