I love the Ruination, so I finally got around to giving this a try too.
Pours a dark blonde or very light amber color with a nice, white head. Good retention and lacing.
Hoppy, spicy, pine aroma. Not as citrus/tropical fruit as some IPA/DIPA's I've had recently. I liked that it had more of these other hop qualities in addition to the citrus. Much like smelling fresh American hops.
Taste is sweet, then quickly bitter with a piney hop flavor. This is followed by some bready malt and finishes dry and balanced.
Mouthfeel is nice and medium-light bodied. A very drinkable IPA that goes down easier than 6.9% might suggest.

Poured from a bottle with a hazy golden yellow color and a decently foamy white head. Has a very nice hoppy floral aroma. Taste is kind of sweet up front, dominated by floral notes with touches of citrus. The finish is a surprising amount of bitterness that lingers a while. The beer has a nice full body feel with some carbonation. This is very refreshing and enjoyable.

Light amber to brown in color. A minuscule bit of white head partially covers the top of the beer. A bit hazy with Brussels lacing. Incredibly enticing aroma of pine like hops reminiscent of pineapple greets me. The mouth is a little sticky and the bitterness prickles my tongue. When I take a sip I get a short but sharp burst of pine like hops and then some light malt to back it up. I get a nice gentle bitter fade.
