General - Got this in a 22 oz bottle from Costco of all places, the price was pretty good, something like $4 for the bottle. Poured this into a New Belgium tulip glass. Still waiting for my new IPA glasses to get in so just getting by for now!
Appearance - The color is a deep deep copper, nearly a brown. The head is a slight off white and is light and frothy. Pours great, there is a steady stream of bubbles from the laser etching on the bottom of the glass. Really great color to this beer.
Aroma - Such a hop bomb! There is a big up front hit of pine with a follow up of some slight citrus! Love the scent of this beer.
Taste - Wow great bitterness with a pine hit to it. There is also citrus in the taste of this, really enjoyable. The bitterness is intense in this beer on the aftertaste! No one they didn't go with this recipe in the original Ruination, while this is good, it's almost too much bitterness!
Mouthfeel - Medium body with almost a creaminess to it. There's also a lot of carbonation that sets of the flavors really well.
Overall - Really nice DIPA! I hope that they keep this one in the regular rotation! Get it if you see it in the store!
