The first time I tried the ruination the bottle was more than a year old and let be honest the hops faded a bit.
so now, I had a fresh bottle in my hand and I said let's drink it, even if I'm stuck with a cold.
Golden amber orangish in color, my glass the head let iself die very quickly leaving just an oily lace, while the other glass there was an indeed very nice head.
smell is bitter, hops, hops and more hops, citrus, piney, pinneapples and a tiny hint of caramel.
Taste is a nice kick in the face, the bitterness hits you right away followed by the citrus, piney aromas of the hops, not shy in mouth, no bitterness aftertaste, just a sweet like malty flavor that comes in and seems to balance everything out.
Serving type: on-tap

4.29/5 rDev -0.2%

Pours a slightly hazy deep gold with an inch thick white pillowy head that dissipates slowly to a film.
Smells of light grassy malts with some biscuit richness and floral fresh hops.
Tastes of grassy malt and fresh floral and grassy hops.
Medium to full body with lightly tingly carbonation.
A very solid strong IPA with great flavor, presentation, aroma, and feel. It's not especially unique or complex, just above average across the board. Drinks very easy if you like a punch of hops and well worth trying.
