look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Popped the top off this growler, eagerly anticipating that loud, intense "pop" but it seemed far more toned down than usual. The pour yielded a fat pillowy head nonetheless.
Smell is heavily of grapefruit - it's very very hoppy. This brew smells like a double ipa, I can't help but think that. A lot of hoppy goodness on the nose...
Taste follows suit - there's a big hop presence here, and a good deal of it presents itself as the mildly bitter taste of grapefruit.
There's also a strong malty backbone to this beer though.
The beer is medium bodied but still it's an easy drinking beer. Always has been a favorite of mine. I wish I'd opened this growler a bit sooner (waited a good month....) but still, it's perfect. I love Stone, and I love Ruination.

Serving type: growler
