For a "single" IPA, Port Brewing's Wipeout did a really good job of frying my taste buds.

Why not buy a syringe of hot shot hop extract and inject it into your mouth?

I'm down with RuinTen for most bitter...at least in my experience. I like it, but feel like Enjoy By is a better beer.

Can anyone that has had both comment on RuinTen vs Ruination?

Also, who lives in California and wants to hook a brother up?

In my experience RuinTen has a harsher bitterness than Ruination. I like both a lot but RuinTen is a bit much for me for regular drinking, especially at 10.8% our whatever it is. IMO Ruination provides the perfect amount of abuse to the palate.

Agreed on all points. Ruination is at the edge. Ruin ten goes over it. I love both but have made better.

That is what I love about it. I've had Pliny, HT, Gandhi-bot, Resin and a lot of other great IPAs but if I had easy access to Ruination and all of the above I think Ruination would be in the fridge all the time. I never get tired of that bitterness.
