How have I not reviewed Ruination yet!? Poured from a bottle to a pint glass the beer arrives a hazy yellow orange with a 1 finger white head. Good retention and lacing, looks good. The nose is terrific with huge hoppy citrus and pine character, more fruity than earthy. Smells like heaven. The flavor is very bitter with the same citrus, earhty hop flavor as detected in the nose. "Ruinous effect on the palette" according to the bottle is right. Dominates. Sweet caramel malt base but not even close to the hop bitterness and flavor. A hint of the alcohol warmth. Full bodied and well carbonated. Overall, this is dominates your face so no use drinking anything of quality after as the bitterness destroys your palette. Very enjoyable.

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
