4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz Bomber. Definitely a Hop Bomb. Hoppy grapefruit pine aroma up front. Moderate lacing. Citrusy hop attack to the palate. Lingering bitterness. Alcohol is slightly detected, very well masked for 10.8%. Overall a great revamped version of Ruination. Perfect to mark the Tenth Anniversary of Ruination, which is one of my favorite DIPA’s of all time. What a treat!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 65cl. Clear orange with a frothy/creamy tan head. Sticky aromas of floral hops, caramel, pine, alcohol. Medium to robust bodied with moderate carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet with heavy bitterness. Deep roasted flavors into a stupidly bitter hoppy finish. Extravagant and exquisite.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber, bottled on 06/22/15. Clear medium copper, mostly lasting firmer off-white foam. Strong dank oily hoppy aroma and taste, bitter piney citric and resinous, alcohol is prominent, leaner sweet caramel malt. Average carbonation, full bodied, aggressively hopped. Over the top with hop, still be bice to try a fresh one. Much preferred the Ruination. DNFL (Definitely Not for Lagerboys)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
ours a deep dark orangish amber color. Aromas of big hop action, sweet malts, and more hops. Flavor has some bready maltsy tastes with nice grapefruit and floral hop taste. This is one hoppy sumbitch. Stone sure knows what they are doing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Absolute hop bomb. A destructive force to the pallette. That’s about all. It’s pretty balanced in that it’s insanely alcoholic but outside of that it’s what you would expect from one of the ruiners from stone. Very good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Golden coloured with a thick head of white foam. It has a very rich, spicy, zesty, warming peppery hop and orange marmalade flavour followed by a smooth bitter-sweet juicy finish. Excellent!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at tasting. Golden orange pour. Aroma of pine, caramel and peach. Sweet bitter taste of dry pine, raisinous hops, caramel and a dry finish. Very close to a barley wine this one.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bouteille bue en août 2014. Explosion de houblon et d’amertume. Un petit goût d’alcool trop présent mais dans l’ensemble c’est une excellente ipa de Stone (encore)

I twirl on the twine and revel in the heat. I have a thirst at times and climb to the sun. I am hop. And i endorse this beer. Paid by my kidneys and liver. Feed the soil and you shall reap the bounty for years if you take less than you give. This ends the lesson. I need another of these.
