4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance- amber, hazy, pure white head which persists around the edge. Aroma- nose fills with floral hops, huge fruitiness, lots of orange and orange peel. Tangy fruit, hop resins, marmalade, bit of malt. Taste- hops galore. Full mouthfeel, coats the mouth. Massive bitterness, juicy fruit, orange, lemon, grapefruit, pine, tangerine, lingering bitterness in a very long finish, fruitcake hints and some biscuity malt. Really excellent.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Billco, Napa. Pours light yellow honey white head and lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits, mango, and caramel malt as well as a slight dankness. Flavor is your typical Stone IPA; tropical fruits, big west coast hops, and a caramel sweetness. Not overly hoppy at all. Pretty well balanced. Like a better Stone IPA. Would def. drink it again.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle from Oak Barrel, Sydney. Brewed 90 days before BB date of 27/5/15. Pours translucent deep orange with a stable medium white head. Certainly a hop monster with substantial pine resin, citrus orange/grapefruit, soft peppery spices and a subdued caramel malt bill on the nose and tongue. Palate is amazingly easy drinking and light for an ABV of 8.2% with a huge lingering dry resinous hop finish. The archetypal US West Coast IPA.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
66cl bottle.Very attractive intensely bitter nose, hardly funky at all, not fruity, not resinous, more like wormwood. Palate is ultra bitter but also very drinkable, with a caramel note and some malt. The high ABV is well integrated. Eminently balanced and drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear with thin white head. Nice hop and malt aroma. Woody aroma. Bitter but not too unbalanced for my tastes. Fairly extreme aftertaste on my palate.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to glass. Name says it all. Huge citrusy, piney hoppy aroma. The bitterness is a bit overpowering in the flavor. Not really balanced at all. I really dig the RuinTen though.
