On tap at Max's.

I'm not the hugest fan of Stone, but this beer is pure hop goodness! The appearance of this is sunset orange with nice soapy white head. The aroma is out of this world! It's a cyclone of Tangerine Citrus and Dank Resinous hops! I get a lupulin high just smelling it! The taste is just as great. Resinous and citric hops flourish with some hop spice. Nice sweet malt backbone with a Dry-Bitter finish with a lingering bitterness. The feel is medium-light smooth body with active carbonation.

Overall: This brew is a hop heads daily drinker...if you like 8% as a daily drinker. The brew is balanced, smooth and popping with in yo face hops! It's sweeter than I remember regular Ruination being, I'm not complaining though. Stone really knows how to nail a hop bomb. This brew is Recommended.

Pours into a nonic a clear medium golden with a frothy whitehead atop.Alot of hop complexity in the nose with some fresh cut grass,herb,and tropical fruits,a bit of toasted grain and mild sweet alcohol as well.Flavors start out herbal and grassy and then kind of a drunken fruitiness comes into play with a bit of toastiness in the finish.Not big and sharp and/or bitter just great hop complexty and I like the little toasted grain element.
