Ruination vs. CIPA

Ruination: 7.7 abv

Mine's considerably richer in color

Ruination is way more gerranial/citrusy. Kind of a sourdough twinge to the nose.

I meant for this to be an important beer tasting, but Jeremiah called and I can barely type coherently. . .

The important point is that I in fact preferred my IPA to Ruination. Mainly this is because of the beauty of Chinook hops. Mine is just more resiny and richer and less grapefruity.

I said the following sentence to Jerm and he liked it so much that I typed it, before drinking too much Eagle Rare:

"Upon attaining verticality and ambulating about the house, I've discovered that those IPA's have really had an effect upon me."
