look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Slightly hazy light copper color. head dissipates into a very thin white layer. not much lacing at all

S: Nice balance of fruity/citrusy hops and piney/dank hops. The fresher the beer is the more you get the flowery/citrusy hops. Slight malt sweetness to the smell

T: Pine and lots of citrus character, backed up nicely by a malty backbone

M: Medium, standard for an IPA of this size

O: A VERY good beer from two roads. I've had this a few times before from a bottle and I was sort of disappointed because I love what Two Roads is doing and I love their Workers Comp and No Limits Hefeweizen. But then I had a sip from one my friend got on draft at Coalhouse Pizza in Stamford and I did not believe him when he said it was road2ruin. It was an absolutely different beer, WAY better than I had remembered. Like with so many IPAs it's a sin not to drink this as fresh as you can - the one I'm having now is a week hold and it is fantastic. If you can't try this beer fresh you're missing out!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped BTLD: 10/17/13. Sampled on February 3, 2014.

It has a hazy golden-pale yellow pour with a tremendous cream-colored head that is soft, soapy and puffy and lingers all the way through.

Pine and floral hops greet the nose with a boom followed more distantly by a caramel or toffee maltiness.

Medium to full body but also on the smooth side.

Quick caramel malt flavor comes forward first. Big bitter finale that coats the back of the throat with earth, pine, and citrus. A nicely done DIPA.
