Was lucky enough to have this on tap earlier this year. I'm a big fan of Ruination and was excited to give this one a test run when I saw it.

Appearance: Golden, copper color with a nice head.

Smell: Super funky hop aroma. Smells like the regular version x3 with a little more of a piney smell to it.

Taste: Super bitter hop bomb that smashes the palate the second you taste it followed by a slight malt backbone that doesn't seem to balance out the hops. Pine and citrus. Definitely a palate wrecker for sure, but quite enjoyable. Very fresh tasting as well.

Mouthfeel: Not too oily but just enough to coat the tongue, doesn't matter because the hops go crazy in your mouth.

Overall: Anther solid effort from Stone. Ruination is a delicious brew so to get this stronger, fresher tasting version was a treat. Hopefully I'll catch this one on tap again at some point.
