Tried this several times before paying the extra for Stone Ruination Ipa. Now trying again.

Pours a lovely golden, copper with a good 1.5 fingers of foam, with excellent retintion and a nice sticky lacing on all sides of my trusty tulip.

Very inviting hoppy smell of lemon, pine and spice and everything nice! Very fresh and inviting!

A lovely assault on the tongue, very upfront with a nice easy washover that keeps me wanting more.

Sits very well in the mouth, a great lingering bitterness very close if not better than my other 2 favs. Two Hearted from Bells and Furious from Surly, Hops RULE!!!!

Overall one of the best west coast IPAs out there, Ruination is exceptional but this is a very close relative that can hold its own without a doubt. Still waiting for Pliny the Elder, hopefully this Christmas.
