Poured into a snifter/wine glass/tulip hybrid

A - BEAUTIFUL copper/blood orange sunset, one finger fluffy white head and some sugar legs

S - wow, GRAPE FRUIT (slammed me in the nose, seriously!), sugar, soil, wet hops, kush, sharp bite of citrus and mostly grapefruit rind, baked/roasted malts, booze, floral perfume and a bright sunshiny mountain morning!

T - Grapefruit (with all of the wonderfully bitter sweetness), some nice booze, sugar, huge malts, HUGE citrus hops, pine, mango, slight pineapple, slight floral, fresh cut grass, mary jane and the great outdoors!

M - Medium to full body, well balanced (hops is over the top but nice), Good complexity and a long sugary hoppy goodness

D/O - Even being over the top with citrus and hops, this beast is refreshing, crisp, very clean, and all together tasty! I could rock this dude on the regular for sure! I bet with a wax cap, this dude could last years. Hops would calm down but maybe be even more gorgeous and the malt would be even more sexy!

Final thoughts - at $7 a pop and 8+ abv, this dude is a hop (specifically citrus hop) bombers dream! Tread lightly and often!

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.
