4.15/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

I was anxiously awaiting the pleasure of double dry hopped ruination, and now that i’m sipping it down I fully appreciate the extreme bitterness of the brew. Golden in color with a centimeter of persistent head and considerable residue clinging to the side of the pint. Lemony aromas mingle with hints of herbs and grassy notes. I get more of the malt body in this inception of ruination (maybe I need to try them side by side), but the delicious bittering hops come in on the back end to dry the palate. Solid west coast ipa to be sure, but the price tag at this bar ($7) doesn’t warrant a second round when I can purchase a bomber of standard ruination for $3.99 at select markets.

Serving type: on-tap
