Bottle, enjoy by 12.13.13. Poured amber with a creamy off-white head. Aromas of pine and grapefruit rind. The flavor found grapefruit rind with a caramel backing. Medium body, mild bitterness, and a grapefruit aftertaste.

Enjoy By 12/13/13. I did not enjoy this as much as i wanted to; as a big fan of (fresh) Ruination, I never expected the intense onion aromas that carried over into the flavors. It’s definitely intense, but just did not agree with me; though I can be fickle with West Coast IPAs. All I could think of is bitter onion, and while I can see hardcore WC IPA fans maybe digging this, it was not for me.

On tap at Hackney’s Printers’ Row. "Enjoy by 12.13.13", enjoyed one day before the "enjoy by" date. Clear light amber with a thin foamy head. Aroma is nothing short of perfect; tropical and citrus fruits. Taste is nearly IPA perfection as well; resin, grassy and fruity hops, bitter finish. Medium-full body. Just awesome.

12/11/13. 22oz bottle from Grassroots. Turd from shelf aroma. Barely made the date cutoff on this one. Almost waited a few days because fuck Stone. You heard me. Also, ScottPurchase is obviously an alias and plagiarizes texts in his rates. Okay, down to business, I guess. Super clear orange pour, slightly darker than orange, I guess, under a nice off-white head that sticks and laces well. Looks good, I suppose. Rich hop aroma, sweet and floral, very floral, with touches of dankness, resin, pine, and grapefruit zest. Surprisingly sweet flavor, malt definitely coming through, some sweet caramel and doughiness, mild balancing hop bitterness definitely shows up, but could use more in my book to help cut the sweet. The hop character accentuates the sweetness in many ways. Some juicy fruit aspects (literally, not the chewing gum), with orange and grapefruit popping out as well as earthy, green hops, pine, more floral and sweet aspects. The bitterness lingers on the tongue slightly and grapefruit pith sits on my tongue. Not bad.
