4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Most excellent brew! I had a pint of this! Hoppy. Laces the glass with a foam. Hints of barley and floral. Bitter wash down. Each glass is a revelation. One of the best by Stone.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft pour at Pinthouse Pizza. Pours amber with a tiny white head that fades into a ring with no lacing. Smells of citrus, hops, caramel, and maybe a hint of honey. Taste is piney and bitter with a syrupy sweetness that flows into a long, consistent hoppy bitter finish. Great beer.

Great strong aroma. Orange-yellow nice look. Hoppy taste, attacks the palate with a tom of hops!

clear, orange/copper color, head is thin and beige. pine dominates the aroma, with plenty of citrus in support. caramel malts with plenty of fresh fruitiness as well. mouthfeel is quite thick, with a lot of buttery caramel, and pine/grapefruit to match. surprisingly well-balanced for an IIPA. very nice, but I’ll still stick to the original ruination.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
clear amber, moderate white head with good retention and lacing. a lot like ruination but amped up tropical fruits. caramel, citrus, floral, mango, stone fruit, slight solvent. very bitter, medium sweet. medium-full body, oily feel, bit warm. honestly comes off as maltier ruination than it does a hoppier ruination. a ruination that’s actually balanced.

This beer was not good at all. I had such high hopes, but was let down by a super sweet crappy IPA.

after taking a few weeks off from IPA’s i returned with this, an incredible palate busting beer! This one’s hard to find, but a must drink if you see it!
