4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
"This beer succeeds in 2012 like the original did in the last decade. When ruination came out it was the biggest baddest iPa on the block. Then bigger hoppier brews sprang up, though ruination remained a favorite of mine. This is thicker, sweeter, hoppier, bitterier :) fruitier. Awesome huge iiPa that blends pine, citrus and a ton of tropical fruit goodness into one helluva package. Hoping for more of this bad ass beer!"

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz Bomber. Tasted on 9/19/14. Bottle from Total Wine Lewisville, TX. This beer has a similar aroma to Ruination but not quite as sweet on the nose. The taste was great with a ton of hop bitterness followed by a piney taste. The finsish was great & very dry for the ABV. Overall very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz. bottle. Supremely hoppy aroma, bursting with citrus fruit, pine, floral and peppery spice tones, along with some faint peppery alcohol and mildly toasty, sweet maltiness in the background. Gently hazy light-medium amber in color with a lasting, fine head and detailed lacing. Flavor profile is intensely hop-focused, with plenty of bitter, piney, citric hop, grapefruit, alcohol, some faint countering malt sweetness in the background here as well. Finish is as hoppy as any beer I’ve had to date. Resinous, warming and moderately effervescent on the palate, absolutely huge in body and feel. This should be way overboard, but manages to remain satisfying and tasty due to its hefty balance and intense hop flavor.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clean copper color with a very dense, 1-inch, creamy, off-white head with tremendous staying power. Aroma hits your nose as soon as you pour it. Strong notes of orange citrus and pineapple with other light tropical fruit notes and a light grainy finish. Flavor has a punch of pineapple at the start and moves into a modest citrus and malty sweetness finish. Body is heavy with some fine carbonation that adds a slight creamy feeling. The alcohol is very well hidden behind the sweet hoppy flavors. Overall a good hoppy beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours copper with a 2 cm off white head. Hint of citrus hops, pine hops that vary in intensity with time. The hops linger on the tongue for many many minutes after swallowing. Not overpowering until after finishing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Slightly hazy deep golden with an off-white head. Aroma of hops - piney, resinous, with a light weedy note and some malt in background. Flavor starts malty and sweet, biscuity and a bit caramelly, continues with piney and resinous hops and a bitter finish. Rounded mouthfeel, a bit oily. Good.

Pours very hazy orange with lots of foamy white head. Aroma is heavy on the citrus and pine, very nice. Nice heavy malty backbone of caramel and toffee. On the hop side it is pretty bitter with alot of pine and citrus and also a little tropical fruit / melon. Yum.
