Ruination, mango'd and peppered out...sounds neat.

A-Pours pretty clear. The body is a glowy orange color. Nice puffed out head. Good lacing as well.

S-The tickle from the peppers is lurking. Then, I get mostly all of what Ruination always offers. Tropical, bitter and delectable..

T-There is some legitimate heat here. I had a small sample of it and it got a bit too spicy for me by the end of the sample. However, I do enjoy the mixture of spiciness and tropical hoppiness.

M-The heat makes this a slow ride for sure. Its painfully enjoyable it some odd way. Heated bitterness doesn't sound very drinkable and at some points it isn't.

O/D-Interesting and well worth a try but any more than a small glass of this and I'm sweating.

Serving type: on-tap
