can an aroma be spongy--its thick with air holes, fine pine with light citrus, but intensely so. clear yellow amber with modest white head. mouth is happy with oily texture and hops all over the place, aerial. odd caramel; flavor before the hops assault in resin & grapefruit—a bit much. full spectrum finish. Gorgeous bottles. Ed5388 (3488) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 26, 2013
22oz bomber. Pours a clear deep copper color with a finger of tan head. Aroma of strong citrus, pine, and caramel malt. Taste is bitter citrus and pine, resin, and caramel. Rmill216 (18) - Northfield, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Aromas of grapefruit and hops. Pours a golden copper with a silky smooth head. Tastes of dank, piney, fruity hops. Bitter and dry finish. Sticky mouthfeel. Excellent DIPA, but I still like Enjoy By better. TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Pours a translucent golden amber with a medium creamy off white head. Aroma was very dank, caramel and mixed citrus. Flavor is kind of sweet up front, aggressively bitter and then dries out a bit. Flavor is also very dank. Beerathon (1681) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2013
DAMN!!! This beer is worth the hype. Huge in the hops department. Sticky, citrusy, floral, lovely. This is a fantastic Imperial IPA.

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. Hopswagger (344) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 26, 2013
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! Warped_Silver (157) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 26, 2013
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.
