Has a little bit of grapefruit flavor, but this beer is all bitterness. Like the bottle proclaims, the bitter flavor dominates your mouth for a long while after you drink it. I admire and respect the beer, but I also have to admit it’s a bit much for me.

Appearance: light amber with copper highlights. Fine particulate matter suspended throughout - not yeast, no idea. Two fingers of slightly off white foam, settling to an eighth inch. Nice lacing on glass, low carbonation.
Aroma: citrus hops with caramel maltiness in the background.
Taste: hoppy obviously; citrusy, mostly grapefruit. Some sweet maltiness in the background.
Mouthfeel: medium body, low carbonation, but enough to be satisfying.
Overall: not a huge Stone fan as I find the bitterness fairly harsh in many of their beers, but Ruination has just enough malt character to offset some of the grapefruit pith bitterness.
