UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 On draft at The Top in Gainesville. Tapped today! Pours copper golden and clear with a small white head. Massive grapefruit aroma with huge floral aromatics. Big slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation (on the low side for an IPA). Flavor of pine hops, very fresh. Some grapefruit and definite floral hop flavor. A bit of malt backbone here, but highlights the bitter as a Ruin(beer) should. Missed out on this last year and glad they brought it back. More flavor than regular ruination, but playing second fiddle to Enjoy By. Good stuff.

P: Crystal clear body with a silky white top.
S: Juicy tropical fruit bouquet that is encased in lime leaves. Pineapple, melon, grapefruit, and floral hops.
T/M: Succulent juicy tropical fruits, toasted sesame seeds, oak funk, old leather, spiced rum and herbs. Spicy medium mouthfeel that bites back.
O: Huge tropical hops and toasty malts. What’s not to love. This is by far one of the best impy’s I’ve had. Succulent and smooth. Great way to celebrate a anniversary. Cheers!

Pours dark copper with yellow head that lingers. Amazing floral notes mixed with citrus. Mouthfeel is moderate with a complex malty backbone holding together an in-your-face burst of hops. Not cloying. Very drinkable for an 11% off-the-charts IBU beer. Well done

Appearance, golden copper and hazy with tints of hay straw. One finger thick head. Aroma, deep floral pine and citrus such as lemon, orange, grapefruit. Palate is thick, smooth, with after tastes of pine and extreme bitterness. Very fresh and crisp.

22 oz bomber from Campus West. Orange amber appearance with a lasting off-white head and light lacing. The aroma is fresh citrus fruits, resinous hops, piney, floral and bitter with light alcohol. Similar flavor, bitter and resinous hops, quite piney with light solvent. Medium body with a dry feel. Slightly disappointing.

Bottle 750ml at the Sybarite Pig. Snifter. Pours an amber-golden with haze and thick white head. Aroma is HOPS...pine, resin, fresh grass and weeds. The taste is liquid sex. Mann I loved it. Fresh hops, pine, pine resin, grass, weeds and well balanced with the malts. VERY bitter finish. Dry. Oh so good.

Every hop heads dream. First sniff and you think you might be in over your head. Extremely bitter! Love it love it love it! If you like high IBU's then this is a must have on stock for your fridge.

Draft and bottles at 16 Tons Taphouse. Pours foamy, clear medium golden orange. Aroma huge resinous yet fresh, some malty biscuity notes, maybe a bit of grapefruit as well. Body very lively but kind of dank, warming super well-hidden, well-balanced. Bitterness lingers. Not a personal favorite, but I get its appeal.
