Poured from a bottle into a duvel tulip
A-Gorgeous bottle, gorgeous pour, gorgeous beer, a vibrant bubbly tangerine orange with flakes of copper and amber when held up to the light. An excellent fluffy 1.5" stark white head sat for a couple minutes and dissipated into beautiful lacing.
S-Floral and citrusy hops, slight yeasty smell as well
T-Similar to the smell but expanded upon immensely. The initial taste is of course grapefruit and hops, slight yeast and honey-esque sweetness come next with a great malty/alcohol finish. All of these blend together flawlessly to create an amazing taste.
M-Medium body, excellent carbonation, slight silky aftertaste.
D-Soooo drinkable, this just may be the best DIPA I've ever had, I don't know how they do it but this is just another exceptional beer 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

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!
