I had this beer right on the expiration date.

It pours a nice dark yellow. Smell has been diminished because of shelf life. A faint hop smell lingers, but not very strong. Carbonation is average. Taste is good, typically bitter like any IPA, although the lack of freshness is noticeable, there is no sweetness like in a fresh beer.

I truly would have like to have a fresh one. Nothing out of this world.

Stone Ruination IPA 4pk bottles $11.99(OH)

12 oz brown bottle poured into a stemless white wine glass. freshness date painted just below bottle neck.

Pours a nice golden color with a slight haze to it. A two and a half finger head last for a while. Gives way to nice thick lacing all over the bulb of the glass.

The aroma is strong. Grapefruits, oranges, powerful citrus notes. A nice piney after tone.

The taste follows the nose. A strong blast of hops, full of citrus and pines. A nice lemon after taste lingers with some bitterness. 100+ IBU's indeed.

Mouth feel is excellent. No complaints at all. great carbonation. A hoppy zest lingers with a dry bitterness.

Overall. My third brew from stone and they keep getting better. This brew is amazing. The high ABV is super hidden. An excellent DIPA. It may just be my new go to DIPA.
