Very good floral scent. Good bitterness well balanced with sweet malt. One of my favorite DIPAs.

22. Pours a hazy rubied medium amber with burnished overtones. Dense creamy off-white surging head--looks huge at first, but settles back to a solid film of mousse with lots of webby lace. Huge mango, pineapple, apricot, and grapefruit nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, mango, pineapple and grapefruit mid palate with a big fat grapefruit wash at the end.

Alcohol was too noticeable in both aroma and taste. Clear amber color with average head. Excellent hop recipe was unusual.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden amber with a nice sustained white head that lingers forever... Huge grapefruit aroma a hint of orange a light sweetness, a touch of alcohol, perhaps some peach, light tropical notes, ... Lightly creamy initially, pretty full bodied, dries out nicely in the finish, a little warming... Piney resinous, lightly tropical slight sweetness, finishes just a touch bitter, almost has a lightly toasty quality to it... Almost too big, too much going on, seems just a touch muddled flavor wise...as it warms, the grapefruit and tropical notes tend to pop more...

Balanced despite its ’rate stats.’ Poured nicely from tap and held its head. Hops are certainly everywhere, but in this case they seem a bit subdued. Huge beer? Not necessarily. Ruination packs a tighter punch.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bottle. Aroma, big surprise, heavy with hops, notes of citrus, grapefruit, mango, grass, and pine are there. Little to no Malts. Pretty much the same appearace as the normal Ruination. However, the lacing is much nicer. The palate is under carbonated making it go down way to easy for the higher ABV. Taste is super bitter, finishing really dry. An American masterpiece, but I am a hophead.
