22 oz bomber pours a slightly cloudy medium amber with huge head and lacing. Aroma is bready malt with citrus mangos, grapefruit and pine. Taste is wonderful citrus and pepper resinous hops - very nice blend of flavor and bittering hops. Mouthfeel is creamy smooth with a kick and dry finish. Drinkability on this one is fantastic - I need frequent reminders to slow down! A great example of a west coast IPA.

A clear orange-ish copper color. A robust head forms and remains for a couple minutes.

Smells of orange rind, powerful hops, with a bouquet of mixed herbyness as well.

The hops lead the Vanguard in this attack. But it isn't painful; the floral flavors follow up immediately. Maltiness is around to make sure the hops don't trample your taste buds.

This is an incredibly well balanced IPA. Carbonation is appropriate, and the alcohol is not ashamed to show make an appearance. Warming presence of the alcohol is welcomed but not excessive.

This is the first time I've had Ruination for a quite a while. Almost forgot why it's a benchmark for great IPAs! A fine product.
