4/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This beer pours a deep straw with a moderate head. The aroma is intense, with big caramel, pine, juniper, and bittered grains. The flavor starts with strong contrast between sweet caramel and bitter pine, with notes of cannabis, orange pith, lime peel, mango, and a very oily, resinous flavor. The mouthfeel is full and tricky, with moderate carbonation. Overall this is a beer drinks as if out of another time - a bigm sweet, and very bitter west coast style IPA, but still, rather illuring - no sickly sweet.

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high white head that only died down a bit and consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of grapefruit pith are present in the nose
T: The taste follows the smell and has lots of flavors of grapefruit pith along with a moderate to high amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA is quite hoppy and bitter. If you like grapefruit pith, then you will probably like this beer.

Really nice “single malt” with bright golden color and fading head. Juicy fruity bites with tropical character including pineapple, mango and floral tones overlaid with spicey pine notes. Body has light malty caramel base to soften the 95 IBU rating. Hops to the max!!

Pours hazy, orange-brown in color with 1/3 head. Taste is pine, orange, and pale malt. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation and slightly bitter. Makes for an excellent introduction to the brewery.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served in a pint glass from the bottle.

Appearance: Semi hazy gold color with medium to heavy bubbles creating a white head rising about half a finger's length. Settles quick with almost no lacing.

Smell: malt scent which dissipates pretty quickly.

Taste: Bitter hops lacking a bit complexity. Malty as it can get and super floral.

Mouth: Dry hops, with a bitter finish with not the most everlasting aftertaste.

Overall: Descent beer but the beer does have some characteristics which could use some improvement. Good one just for a review, Salud.

Super hoppy IPA. At 7% ABV and 95 IBUs this is a memorable beer. Grassy and citrusy on the nose. Taste is well balanced with malts.

Bottled from Total in MKE.

Pours a slightly unclear dark yellow. Thick head.

Smell is heavy with piney resin, and a hint of grapefruit. Smells a bit like the original Ruination.

Taste is a bit more subdued than I thought, I was expecting a fistful of bitterness. It is very bitter, but less than I thought. Slightly unbalanced, as there isn't a whole lot of base to support it.

Mouthfeel is thinner than I thought, less ticky. Well carbonated.

Overall, a good IPA, even though the taste and feel didn't quite live up to the nose.
