Hopes dashed. This beer had an aggressive hop profile, piney and in your face. Exactly what I had recently realized is what turns me off to some IPAs and Pale Ales. I wish I knew how the aroma was... but stuffed nose.
There was nothing positive that stood out about it. The grain seems like it would be the standard 2-row with a dash of c20 thrown in for color. It was a light IPA, even with the slight haze. Maybe very slightly darker than a Ruination 1.0. Very hazy though, which I believe may have affected my perception negatively.
All told, I had about 6 oz and then dumped it. Wasn't worth finishing.
