4.18/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Hazy orangy-yellow color with a solid 2-finger white head. Lacing clings to the glass from start to finish.

S: Grassy, piney, skunky hops fill the nose. Not much balance from the malts in the aroma.

T: Pale ale all the way. Bright, citrusy hops with a ton of malt to back it up. But the malts never take over, as the bitter hops dominate from start to finish. Not a one-trick pony, however, as the flavor never really gets boring.

M: Low- to medium carbonation keeps it all together. Crisp and dry, not much creaminess here.

O: A solid DIPA. I don't get the sense that this is 100+ IBUs. Bitter, for sure, but not puckering. The malts, as minor a player as they are, maintain a decent balance but don't really affect the flavor that much. A good DIPA, but not sure it's worth the price tag. A solid B+/A- in my book.

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

Serving type: on-tap
