Pours golden orange with a nice fluffy white head. A large floral bouquet leads to a very bitter first sip. Finishes with notes of grapefruit and citrus. The hops linger and stick to your tongue well after you finish a drink.

Very tasty IPA with a strong 10.8 Ach I really enjoyed this beer and the buzz I got, for home drinking only. podey (638) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Draft at Gingerman. Pours clear amber with thick off-white head. Terrific lacing. Aroma is full of grapefruit, pine resin and grassy hops. Taste is slightly boozy in the forefront, but moves to grassy, floral hops with a touch of sweeter caramel malts. Bitterness and alcohol warmth linger in the finish. tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle. Bright gold pour, white head. Little retention/some lace. Aroma of grass, citrus, pine hop, cracker/caramel malt. Taste is bitter, aggressive citrus/pine, caramel malt. Palate is soft, oily, a bit sticky, bitter finish.

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 don’t like bitter, but for those of us who do it’s a treat as it’s 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. pete4999 (1445) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2013
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 wasn’t expecting, a little bit of honey-ish flavor. I don’t recall Ruination having that same sweetness. arone12 (929) - Maryland, USA - JUN 28, 2013
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. coolfunnj (374) - Margate City, New Jersey, USA - JUN 28, 2013
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 DedicatedToFun (4000) - Santa Monica, California, USA - JUN 28, 2013
