Poured from a bomber into a mug.
A - Pours a very hazy dark orange, with a touch off white head. Big lacing.
S - Grapefruit and citrus hops, a touch of pine, and a decent malt backbone round out the aroma. Maybe even a bit astringent.
T - The bitter hop flavors more or less follow the nose, but the malt backbone comes on stronger in the flavor. Finishes with a blast of piney hops.
M - Medium bodied, smooth and a bit sudsy feeling. The carbonation level is perfect.
O - Overall, a fantastic beer - I actually enjoyed it much more than the Ruination IPA. I will have to try to get some of this back to Nebraska.
