4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pretty much lives up to the hype. Has the aroma and taste of Ruination but without the over the top mouth feel. Really the standard for a single IPA hands down. In the end taste is everything and this one has it in spades.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden with big foamy head. Big piney aroma. Grapefruit, resin, long bitterness that covers the palate. Quite strong and heavy. Classic huge Cali style ipa. I like ipas that are a bit fruitier, but this one still tanks quite high.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Laranja de leve turbidez, espuma de otima formação e persistência, cremosa. Aroma misto de mel/caramelo, lúpulo, resina, fruta amarela madura. Paladar de médio dulçor e amargor um pouco mais intenso. Corpo médio e carbonatação leve/média. Final de média persistência, mantém as ótimas impressões iniciais do paladar e aroma. Praticamente sem palavras do que poderia melhorar.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden copper with a decent soapy white head and nice lacing. Smells a nice bouquet of citrus berry; very impressive. Has a good flavor (not great), a bit more alcohol in the taste than I like, with a much better aftertaste than the initial flavor suggests. Has a good amount of bitterness on the finish but is extremely well balanced. Really enjoyable!
