A lighter IIPA, hefeweizen color, slightly cloudy with a faint orange tint. White suds, decent retention.
Dense hop smell. Tough to separate out much else, maybe some biscuit. But the hops are quite a show in themselves once the beer is warm enough.
Loads of grapefruit, pine in the house. Any malt body gets buried by the hop avalanche and swept down the hop river before you can pick it up. I suppose you could safely use the word bitter.
Slightly under-carbonated and not as clingy as some but a smooth feel to it.
Drinkability is good for a beer this potent, but the fact that your taste buds get worn out is also relevant.
Ruination really had more citrus than I can remember in a beer. Lots of character. Very hoppity, hop hopper. Glad Stone makes this and is fun for the occasional hop binge.
