A- Great IPA look. Its a hazy orange with a nice creamy white head. very small bubbles comming from the bottom of my tumbler.
S- Smells kind of like the regular IPA, lots of citus fresh ops and some pine. Love Stone IPAs and i am excited about this one.
T- Wow okay very nice. Takes a while to dissect these flavors.. The hops come in strong and up front. The flavors just lay back and chill on your tongue as your whole mouth drys out. The orange citrus flavors are in the background along with some pine. Main this in this beer is opviously hops, and more hops. Not to shabby. Its a good flavor but i was expecting it a little better, but i wont complain because at 100 IBUS this is still a great drinking IPA.
M- Dry, very powerful hop flavor, pine lingers a little.. Not the best mouth feel.
I was very excited about this beer, and i still like it. I dont know if i over hyped this one but it wasnt as good as i was expecting.
However, its still a great brew by Stone and bold of them to put a 100 IBU beer on the market.. Good job 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

Mouth-numbingly hoppy and at times almost to powerful, almost. Certainly one of those beers you must taste in your beer drinking lifetime. Must be the last beer of the day, anything else will not taste the way it should after this brew. This is at the pinnacle of hoppiness!
