Thanks to raider for bringing this treat back from cali and sharing it on our IPA session night a couple of months back. Was good stuff.
Amber hued ale poured with an offwhite head. Lightly carbonated, once the head settled down it left fine yet intricate lacings inside the pint glass.
Floral, earthy, and big bitter hops with the aroma of grapefruit and pine overtop of biscuity malts with just a hint of caramel sweetness.
This is a very good, classic example of the american DIPA. Dry biscuity malts with just a hint of caramel sweetness, but the emphasis is on the bitter yet fruity hops that blast the palate with citrus, tropical fruit, and some pine.
Good malt backbone in this medium bodied brew, but balancde definately tilted to the hops with their awesome, lingering, resinous bitterness.
Definately drinkable/sessionable brew for the hop heads out there. Highly recommended for someone looking for a tasty hop treat. Definately not recommended for someone who doesnt like a lingering, resinous, hop blast. Will gladly drink again, hurry up and get distributed in northwest wisconsin!

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
