This is nothing other than stone's ruination ipa with grapefruit. A very highly hopped, high quality ipa with an added dose of flavoring which many west coast ipa styles should have plenty of. Color is straw and akin to any double ipa. Smell is where the grapefruit shines as it gives way to some booziness. Bitter orange is also in the along with spice and pine from the centennial hops. Taste is pretty good....just as you'd expect; ruination with bitter grapefruit. Some heat from the alcohol. This beer is very bitter and not sweet at all. It's a great take on the classic ruination and definately trying at least once.

Couldnt tell this was a Stone beer. The clerk had to tell me.

Poured into my usual glass and got very clear dark gold beer with meringue like head and great lacing.

NOse is tropical, spicy and of course grapefruit.

Taste is intense. Grapefruit, malt, hops. The finish, in some ways, is stronger than the initial taste. Grapefruit peel is really there!

Mouth feel is about as good as it gets. Just right carbonation and not dry. Alcohol is not overwhelming. A unique and well done beer.

Pours a medium orange with a one finger off white head with some nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus peel (a lot of grapefruit), pine, herbal hop noes, sweet malts, and some tropical fruits. Taste is citrus peels (grapefruit mainly) resiny pine, herbal hops, tropical fruits, sweet malts, and some light bready malts. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium-long, grapefruit dominated bitter finish.
