Enter, if you will, all the glorious aromatic complexity of the hop. This big, bold IPA’s intense multi-hop kick gets a subtle dose of restraint from select Crystal and Carastan malts. For discriminating hop heads.

egajdzis (5697) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Poured a hazy copper color with a medium sized, off white head that left moderate lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus fruits, and and some caramel malts as well. Taste of more pine and caramel, with toffee, light toastiness, and grapefruit finish.

weeare138 (936) - Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2006
Thanks to zrrbrrt for this... Appears a medium toned, hazy amber with a small off-white head that sLowly fades out. Streaks of lacing was left around the glass. Smell is creamy, citrusy, with caramel, grass, and biscuits. Taste is of the mentioned aromas highlighted with earthy, grassy, and citrusy flavors. Mouthfeel is bitter without much of a sugary, ballsy malt balance that I was craving in this one.

1FastSTi (3357) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Bottle via Chuck. The beer pours to a nice orange copper caramel colored body with a creamy white head. Nice lacing. The aroma is nicely grapefruity, piney, and creamy caramel. The flavor is quite bitter. The palate is extremely bitter. Lingering oily resin feel. Dry. A good beer but seems more bitter than Ruination.
