A- Pours a clear yellow/amber color with a hefty white head that leaves giant splotches of lacing down the glass.
S- An obnoxiously hoppy, but yet extremely complex aroma floats up from the rocky head of the beer. A bitter, piney aroma hits the nose first, but a plethora tropical notes follows close behind. Hints of pineapple, grapefruit, honey, and peach comes through, balanced by a hint of tobacco. A caramelly backbone compliments the honey aroma.
T- Intense pine and tobacco with subtle tropical fruit notes. The hops definately dominate the flavor and although notes of honey and caramelized sugar come through, no sweetness comes through at all. Hints of tobacco come through in the aftertaste and linger as it dries the mouth.
M- Medium body with a dry, nutty, lingering finish.
D- This is intense

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
