Ya know...the name says it all. The text on the bottle about the name really says it all. Between this and Hop Stoopid I dont think any other beer will ever appeal to me. I am truly "Ruined".

Poured from 12 oz. bottle to tulip glass.

A: Nice, clear, burnt orange. Slightly hazy as it warms up. 1/2 in white head.
S: Deep piney dank hops. Candy-like sweetness. Lot of pineapple. Peach and mandarin orange peek out as the fruit flavors. Hint of caramel malt.
T: A strong bitterness up front. Assertively hopped, with the hop oils giving a very piney taste. Fruit flavors peek through, with orange being the most dominant. Decent amount of sweetness coming from the malt. Slightly earthy. Alcohol is hidden well. Strong hoppy aftertaste.
M: Medium. Slick. Prickly carbonation.
O: My palate has been "ruined". I wonder if you can drink this as a mouthwash?

This is a stellar DIPA. Cloudy amber color. Perfect citrus and pine combination in the nose and mouth. Sticky sweet but just the right amount of carbonation to make you want the next mouthful. Great beer!
