look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Very pale colored, typical 2 row based IPA look.

Smell: INTENSELY CITRUSY!!! Seriously this beer smells amazing, classic grapefruity citrusy reek but beefed up on steroids. I smell a strong presence of Columbus hops, possibly even a little centennial but definitely very very columbus hop forward.

Taste: Super citrusy super bitter yet surprisingly smooth...the sheer floral explosion in your mouth almost cuts the bitter down to size. I taste a slightly detectable sweetness from a mellow 2 row malt combined with victory malts or something of the sort, but nothing distracting you from this hop masterpiece. I love this beer. Definitely way hop forward thats for sure.

Mouthfeel: Most definitely a drier beer but not champagne dry. Perfect for the style if you ask me.

Overall, ruination is my go to beer. I love its flavor. Its rare i find an ipa i consider on its calibur.
