A - Yellow-orange, pretty cloudy. I could care less about appearance, so unless it's really beautiful or really ugly, it will get the average of the other ratings. Who drinks a beer for appearance anyway?
S - Citrus, pine, some spice. Basically Stone IPA and a half.
T - Hops and alcohol. Citrusy, piney, spicey hops cut through, but due to the high ABV, the malt is heavier than Ruination, and while I feel the malt profile of Ruination is a little light, I get that alcohol flavor that I often detect in 10% ABV beers, and thus I think Ruination tastes a little better.
M - Alcohol and hops. I think the higher ABV makes it harder for the hops to cut through.
O - Stone Ruination is one of my favorite beers. This is similar, but I feel the high ABV slightly compromises the taste.
Serving type: on-tap
