4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 22oz bottle. Absolutely beautiful, deep honey/amber with a small white head. Aroma is, as expected, citrus and pine, but not as intense for such a hoppy brew. Slightly sticky, light lacing that eventually slides off. Definitely not for those who donít like bitter, but for those of us who do itís a treat as itís quite heavy on that point. Slight alcohol taste comes through, but does not detract. Full body and lively on the palate with a long, bitter finish. Stone Brewery delivered a real treat with this one.

On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. Kinda as expected - hoppy, piney, a nite bitter bite. Surprisingly easy to drink seeing how strong it is. Has a decent sweetness that I wasnít expecting, a little bit of honey-ish flavor. I donít recall Ruination having that same sweetness.

Pours an ambery orange color with an off white head. Huge hop nose and flavors. I get pine and pine needle. Maybe some pine tar! Mmmmmmm. Bit of citrusy fruits such as a grapefruit or orange. But mostly just delicious hops. I like this one.

aroma almost exactly like a freshly cut grapefruit..yes really..slightly ambered clear yellow golden liquid,foamy white head lots of retention...tastes of grapefruit,light ginger,lemon.possibly a hint of pine..there is a malty background but its way in the back..very refreshing..medium-full bodied tingly and just a little slick on the palate with a very dry/bitter finish..overall..great ipa and great summer beer

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 ounce bottle. Poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a translucent copper with a substantial orange tinged head of foam. The aroma has nice grapefruit, cotton candy, spruce tips, and mango character. Tastes a little brash. Definitely a bitter sumbitch. Sticky sweet mouthfeel about mid palate that moves to a briny warming finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear golden orange on tap with thin white head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is heavy on the hops, citrus and pine mixture of the the cís, slight pale malt back. Taste is an awesome hop bomb, nice and bitter pine, slight malty middle, then it falls to boozy hops. Solid fucking beer.

Clear, copper pour with a white head. Light citrus and florals with a caramel backbone. It has a medium body with somewhat thick, oily mouthfeel and average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet for a second or two, then grows in bitterness for the finish.

Bottle: The aroma consists of big citrus, pineapple, peach, grapefruit, and alcohol. It pours a transparent amber with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film. Thereís some sporadic thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with orange, pineapple, and light peach. The finish has moderate grapefruit and spicy hops along with light-moderate alcohol. Itís medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden with a lasting head. Aroma fills the room with sharp citrus, grass, and peach. Taste is similar but more grass and herb and spice. Nice cleansing palate.
