On tap at Cole’s in Buffalo. Pours light and clear with almost no head at all. Aroma is strong and delicious with citrus and very hoppy. Taste has a very mild bitter to it with the big citrus notes coming through.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours orange with tall white head. All sorts of citrus and melon wafting from the glass. Not very malty which is the way I like ’em. Mango, peaches, pineapple, absolutely delicious, almost perfection in a glass for this IPA lover. Rather expensive (like Ruination) but you bet I’ll be buying it now that it’s available in Texas. If you like the Southern California style of citrusy IPA, you will LOVE this one.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light red-orange with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is very hoppy; grassy, pine, citrus, pineapple, some grapefruit, and a bit of caramel. Taste is pine, grapefruit, bittersweet lemon and orange peel, some bready malt flavor and a bitter hops finish. Clean mouth feel; not the smoothest ever but still quite decent.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2015 Pretty much the perfect IPA, plus it’s always readily available. Sturdy enough malt backbone that lets bright apricot and citrus shine.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark golden color with large, bubbly, bleach white head. There is a ton of lacing on each sip. The aroma is full of resiny hops with all the complexities of a big blend (grapefruit and pine). The flavors are mildly sweet with lots of bitterness and spciiness from the hops. There isn’t any one character of the beer that really makes it pop, but the balance of the very strong flavors makes it extremely enjoyable.

Klart mahogni med lavt hvitt skum. Frisk duft av sitrus og noe gran. Sitrus skall og karamell i smaken. Skuffende tynn munnfølelse med en tørr avslutning.
