Appearance - Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a finger width white head. The lace is fairly thin, but sticky.
Smell - Bitter citrus on the nose, but the aroma is faint. Hard to distinguish anything else. A faint hint of malt.
Taste - A lot of bitter grapefruit and orange peel in the hop profile. There's a sweet, bready malt that eats away at the bitter hop dominance, resulting in a 2IPA that's more balanced than most... but maybe that's not such a fantastic thing.
Mouthfeel - Smooth and drinkable. The carbonation hits as expected for the style.
Overall - A solid 2IPA. Not quite as interesting as Lagunitas Hop Stoopid or Pliny the Elder, or even it's 10th anniversary or double dry-hopped counterparts, but it holds it's own nonetheless.

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
