Smells sweet with grapefruit notes and spruce needles. Pours golden, small white head moderate looking carbonation.
Very hoppy flavour, on the edge of too bitter, grapefruit peel, spruce, slightly floral, burnt caramel. Super hoppy and bitter.
Heavy body, bitter finish, slightly oily, slightly astringent, but very well balanced.
Rock solid, hoppy with body to back it up. Well balanced considering how hoppy it is.

Resinous hops, spruce and citrus are in full force. Clear golden pour great lacing. Nice head. Overall a wonderfully intense and flavorful IIPA.

Bottle, 330 ml. Pours light amber with around a half finger of white head, which leaves behind a fair bit of lacing. Aroma mostly consists of earthy, floral hops, though a malt presence is detectable with notes of honey and some minor fruity characteristics. These are somewhat more pronounced in the taste, with caramel and perhaps cereal notes arising, but still take second billing to that absolutely MASSIVE hop character, which supplies a hefty amount of bitterness on the back end.

Keg from the Sheffield tap. Amber with heavy white lacing. Strong tropical aroma, very inviting. Tastes relatively mild considering the aroma and strength. Huge bitterness after though. Good stuff.

Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Appearance is a pleasant clear golden brown. Aroma is a huge hit of tropical fruit hops, a really big hit! Taste is, wow!!! a massive storm of tropical fruits, citrus, orange, a touch of lemon and some fruit salad sweet like taste. The finish is massively bitter. I didnít think i would rate a beer perfect, but it would be a disservice not to do so. Truly incredible stuff. Ruination IPA itís been an honour to meet you and I hope we meet again. Amazing stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice hop aroma with grapes, flowers a bit parfumic some caramel, Clear orange, white head. A bit of nutty maltiness that is soon overwhelmed with hops. Nice long lasting bitterness. Medium body, average carbonation, would prefer it lighter and drier. A really nice IIPA, but I know it to be even better, I suspect mine is a tad bit to old

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sadly served to cold to release the full gamut of aromas. Appeared hazy amber with a good skim of white head. Up the nose was Golden Queen peaches, spruce cones and resinous hops, typical of the style. In the mouth a lush fruity, zesty and hoppy symphony with bitterness in spadefuls. The finish is an enduring glissade from violent chlorophyll into distant medicinal herbaceousness. Could possibly be a rock star beer but for the way it was served... something breweries ought to take ownership of.
