on tap at the gingerman: slightly hazy pumpkin orange-tinted brown. big creamy off white head the stayed around the whole time. tantalizingly huge spruce hop aroma with light fruity esters and citrus in the background. this is a very appetizing beer to look at and just inhale. perfect level of carbonation...sturdy medium body that is nice and chewy yet still perfectly crisp. crystal/bready malt flavors hold up rather well to an enormous pine needle hop bite. citrus tones are there but take second fiddle to the resinous piney taste. dry hopped to perfection. finishes super clean and dry and enjoyably bitter. hop burps last for hours. this is one helluva an IPA, i think i enjoy this one even more than the ruination. seems crafted with surgical precision, a hop-head's quaffing delight. delicious.

This is my favorite IPA and a goto beer for me.
Pour - excellent voluminous, frothy pour; leaving a gorgeous three finger, frothy, sea foam head.
Appearance - Very nice, clear amber. Lacing is outstanding.
Nose - The nose is not powerful, but does bring up a nice light grapefruit/pine/resin scent.
Taste - Yummy. Not thick and or over the top; but rather a perfect balance. Ruby Red grapefruit juice, pine resin, yummy sweet malt.
Finish - perfect. Bitter, long lasting, citrus sour.
This is truly a world class beer.
