look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured into Stone IRS glass.
A 1.5 finger fuzzy off white head forms and turns quite foamy. The body is a hazy orange with excellent carbonation. Lacing is left after the head goes down and leaves rocky bubbles of foam above the body. Looks very nice.
S Big ole tropical fruits jump out at you. Grapefruit, orange, pineapple and mango take charge along with what smells to be a bitter citrus.
T Excellent citrusy and piney bitterness upfront that carries all the way to the finish. Lots of fruit the same as the nose comes out that's somewhat sweet but mainly bitter. The finish is piney, bitter and dry, this stuff is excellent. West Coast hops bring the nice fruity character along with a solid palate wrecking bitterness. Citra bomb, best of both worlds. So close to a 5
M Medium feel that's somewhat sticky and syrupy. There's a medium carbonation made up of smaller carbo bubbles that makes for an almost creamy sip. Feels good but a toned down sticky/syrup feel would definitely benefit the beer
O This is a great anniversary beer. Definitely a step up from Ruination that doesn't deviate from the original beer. Make this every year..
