4.46/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

22 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Some lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Insanely hop bomber beer. I wouldn't expect anything less from these guys. Pine, resin, grassy, earthy, and citrus hops. Caramel and bready malts in there with some dried orange too.

Taste: As for the 100 IBU's, I love it because of the malt balance with the hops even though the hops are front stage. Taste brings out tropical flavors along with everything else mentioned above. Tingly bitterness in the end too.

Mouthfeel: Tingly bitterness, chewy, dry, a bit crisp, medium carbonation, medium to full bodied, and a bit smooth.

Overall: Wicked solid DIPA. Enjoyed alot over the years and many more in the future. Cheers.

This pours a clear golden color. I get a big aroma that’s both piney and bitter, with a bale of grass and straw thrown in for kicks. Intensely hoppy and with a drying finish that doesn’t keep me from sipping. Ruination doesn’t disappoint in the least.
