Served chilled from a 22 oz bomber and poured into a pint glass. Pours an orange amber color with a frothy white foam head. Smell is sweet and citrusy, with hints of pine, resin, orange, mango and pineapple. Carbonation is moderate to high with a medium body. Taste is piney and citrusy, and is extremely well balanced for a DIPA. The malt is sweet and crisp, and the hops taste of grapefruits and other bitter flavors.
Compared with the original Ruination recipe, I like this way more. The massive IBU bomb is still there, but in a concoction that is much more balanced, flavorful, and memorable. Definitely check this out-price isn't bad too.
