4.19/5 rDev -2.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25
On tap at Thirsty Monk, Asheville
A- pours a hazy golden orange color with a small white creamy head that reduces, leaving a layer of lace around the entire glass
S- bright citrusy hops, danky with some fresh grass, big backbone of sweet doughy malt
T- enough hops to wreck the palate for sure, lots of citrus with some herbal and earthy notes, sweet caramel malt transitions into sweet and doughy flavors to stand up to the hops, long and bitter after-taste stays on the palate on the finish
M- heavy and viscous body with moderate carbonation, creamy mouthfeel with a viscous yet smooth finish, a loco is noticeable but not overpowering. The viscosity makes it a bit of a chore to drink an entire glass
O- as specter, an enormous hop bomb that destroys the palate. 10oz was more than enough for me because of the syrupy mouthfeel, that was the only downside for me
Serving type: on-tap

4.48/5 rDev +3.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
A- Clear red/orange in color with a 2 finger white head. Fades quickly leaving some decent lacing.
S- Big, dank tropical fruits (mango, grapefruit, pineapple). Sweet malts and pine also present.
T- Much like the smell. Very resinous and dank. Quite sweet and bitter to go with the huge hops. Alcohol there but well hidden. A great beer here.
M- Medium body and surprisingly smooth. Just enough bitterness to leave you wanting another sip. Low to average carbonation.
O- A palette wrecker, for sure, but so good. If you haven't tried it, do so.

4.44/5 rDev +3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Clear pale gold glass holds a halo of white foam, no lacing. Tiny champagne bubbles slowly rise.
Smell: Mild grapefruit rind, floral whiffs of citric hops with a little sugar base.
Taste: Full hop green flavor but held in check with a cracker dry base malt. I've always felt Ruination was less hoppy than Stone IPA, this follows suit. Still, a hoppy beer by any standard, just not a bitter one sided monster. The light floral elements come out a bit, and the lighter flavor profile makes every sip enjoyable.
Mouthfeel: Dry, medium body, low carbonation, oily texture.
Overall: A wonderful beer. Showcases my favorite hop flavors (citric) with enough support to soak up the bitterness and let the fruity notes shine. I'll be looking for more; great stuff.
