Served in a snifter at Bigby's Pour House.

Always pleased to see some limited-seeming kegs make their way through the area without having to delve in the City. This stuff pours a clear sunset amber topped by a finger of lightly off-cream foam. The nose comprises pine resin, dank greens, rye biscuit, and a pinch of pineapple juice in the background. The taste brings in more of the same, with a potent strain of pepper-borne heat bubbling up from beneath. Not much in the way of mango, but those peppers sure as hell make their presence known. The body is a stolid medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a solid DIPA, something to be expected considering the base, but the additions don't really elevate the beer all that much, if at all.

On tap at the 2013 Firestone Walker Invitational held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Billed as Ruination IPA brewed with mango and habanero peppers.

Pours a clear honey orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, garlic, onion, and slight mango and chile aromas. Taste is much the same with vegetal hop flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness and a mild chile heat on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some interesting aromas and flavors.

I usually dislike beets with peppers in them. This was a perfect balance of bitter hops and spice.the heat lasted just long enough and complemented my dinner wonderfully. Amazing nose as well.

Served on tap at Miller's ale house watertown Massachusetts.
