4.45/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Poured carefully into a room temperature, 10 oz. fluted glass, the white head is small, but fluffy, and diminishes quickly with little lacing. The color is a murky deep orange, not quite amber. The cloudiness is intriguing in an IPA.

S - even the scent on this brew is muti-tiered, with a heavy hops prescense, but a deep tone of grapefruit and walnut cask aging.

T - it starts sweet on the front of the tongue, and converts the entire landscape to bitterness. The long, long finish is slightly acidic, but by no means in a bad way.

M - a light, dry body with a soft carbonation. It has some great drinkability level, but you have o be a hop head first, as the label states.

D - oh, boy, I can't really expand too much on that. Yes, you can drink of this. This brew takes alot of levels of flavor, and amplifies them beyonf nuances, and ,makes them major playres.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

22 oz.

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.

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.
