What can you say about Stone that's not already been said?
This DIPA is a great example of the breed. It opens up with a beautiful floral hop aroma that is sweet and begs you to take a sip.
It's in typical Stone fashion to really overload..well put quite a bit of hops in there. I wouldn't say that it's overdone, especially for an DIPA.
The brew is smooth going down and leaves a warm feeling in the gullet. There is a sort of vegetative flavor in there. Reminds me of Gin? Don't know why, but it does. I suppose there's some sort of fruit flavor in there that's I'm missing.
Either way, this bottle if quite a good one. I'm a big fan of the regular IPA but I would have to say that I prefer this excellent brew from Stone.

Excellent! Great body for a Double IPA, forward hop, and aftertaste that wins! Thank you Stone Brewery for always living up to your expectation. Ruination is an excellent IPA for those who enjoy the sensation of superior hops!
Cheers to you Stone! Thank you for the excellent brew
