Growler poured into a pint glass.
A - One and a half-finger white head leaves behind massive lacing. Pour is a very slightly cloudy yellowish orange.
S - Spicy hops, grapefruit, and a slightly sweet pine undertone.
T - Truly palate-ruining spicy hops predominate, but upon closer inspection juniper berries, spicy citrus, and mildly sweet malts form the foundation. The finish is more gentle than I was expecting with a mild hop bitterness lingering.
M - Mild carbonation, but creamier than most IPAs. But it works to keep the hops from feeling too sharp on the tongue.
D - Perhaps the ultimate hop-lovers beer, this baby is named very appropriately. Best to save this one for sipping or for cutting through some seriously spicy salsa (my favorite way to drink it).

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!
