3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear, vibrant, orange-golden color with a white head. As much tangerine as there is grapefruit in the bouquet. Smooth, full mouthfeel. Gigantic tangerine. So much so, I’m surprised stone would call this a grapefruit slam. There is more grapefruit in the bouquet than in the flavor. Fun beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Breakfast anyone? Grapefruit is the predominant theme here. The aroma is citrus hops with an extra zing. Copper color that was lighter than expected with a white head. Medium weight palate with a good amount of carbonation and somewhat dry finish. Not as strong on the IBU’s as the original Ruination but still pronounced. The grapefruit juice flavor kicks in at the end but doesn’t linger. Still somewhat of a palate killer but great nonetheless.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2013 Draft. WOB.
Pale, light golden.
Fruity pebbles. Peaches, cream sickle.
Tangerine rind, intensely bitter. Artificial flavoring.
Way too bitter. LC Tangerine meets Lagunitas Lil Sumpin. Not for me.

At Gainesville HOB. Golden pour with creamy white head and lots of lacing. Smells like Ruination with some extra fruit sweetness. Flavor is big hoppy bitter as with regular Ruination, but lots of extra puckering grapefruit juice and acidity. Slick mouthfeel. Good stuff.

Pint at WOB Easton on 8/22/13. Clear amber pour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, lemon, pine and malt. Big grapefruit juice flavor with some maltiness and orange accents before a piney hop finish. Very tasty.
