alright 12oz long neck with an awesome painted label. don't know why i havent reviewed this but anyway it pours a slightly hazed yellow orange with a bright white head that shows great retention from the one finger head that was produced. good lacing as well. the aroma is surprising more citrusy than i remember (been a few months) of course very piney, resins coming in, floral power. definitely some sweet citrus as well. this one is 60 days old so perhaps the pine and hop scents have faded and the citrus has held up but still a hop bomb to say the least. the taste is an absolute hop onslaught with pine more pine and some dankness; finishes bone dry. much less citrus than was in the nose but still present with sweet tangerine and bitter grapefruit busting through. a very pale biscuit malt is there but just overtaken by the hops. the mouthfeel is...well do you know rob gronkowski? its like taking a gronk power spike off the mother fu#@ing face in a new england winter. did rob gron just hit you in the face with a bag of hops? its stings doesn't it? prickly crisp and sharp when im in the mood for this i love it and stone does it right. overall i like this brew and what they did. if you want unbalance this is your guy! drink it rob!

Served on tap at The Euston Tap in London, a long way from Escondido!

This is a Prince among beers, i was tempted to give it a 5 for taste but i'm still in search of the perfect beer but this is close!

Ruination is big on the hops and citrus, VERY hoppy with an intense hoopy aroma and a well balanced body.

One of the best.

Hard pour results in a 1 finger, creamy white head which dissapates quicky. Lots of lacing down the glass.
Huge wiff of citrus/grapefruit and floral hops in the nose.
Taste is loads of bready malt and insanely piney and citrus fruit.
Very complex brew. Great velet mouthfeel that finshes dry.
Stone has hit this style out of the park.
