One of my favorite beer. So hoppy but yet so smooth. Not for beginners this beer packs a punch you gotta like ipa's.

Overall a solid example of a west coast IPA. Nothing that stands out but it’s still very good. Good standby hoppy light summer beer.

Golden clear, frothy foam. Perishing to a small crown, decent lacing-High level of hoppy aroma, citrus, tropical fruits. Very high hoppy flavor. High bitterness with some medium, chewy maltiness. Some spiciness Medium body, oily. Bitter finish

Very delcious.

This brew is strong and it's reasonable to expect anything named Ruination to be as strong as it is. It feels heavy and the flavor is about right for one positioned as a heavy brew. I rate it very good because even though I probably won't have any more of it, I'm sure there are many who have sophisticated taste as I have will have more of it and it will be satisfying.

Got a bomber of 2.0 from my favorite Beer World - that likes to jack up the prices on over-aged beer. The date on this bomber was enjoy by 08/17/17...purchased 11/04/17 (I know my fault - but I wanted to try it).
They have some Stone Tangerine Express that was over a year old!
Anyway - another meh...not good - not bad...reminds me of a boozy Ballast Point Sculpin....

So it’s a good beer but it doesn’t finish its hoppy and bitter but boozy. I think that if it was a little be smother than it would be a winner. But overall it’s still a beer that should be a part of any IPA tour
