A - Yellow-orange, pretty cloudy. I could care less about appearance, so unless it's really beautiful or really ugly, it will get the average of the other ratings. Who drinks a beer for appearance anyway?
S - Citrus, pine, some spice. Basically Stone IPA and a half.
T - HOPS! I'm serious, aside from Hoptimum by Sierra Nevada, this is the only beer I would say that about. Some would consider it grassy, but those citrusy, piney, spicey hops cut through like nothing else. The malt is light, but not too light, and while I usually like a light malt profile, with all those hops it probably wouldn't hurt if it was a little heavier.
M - HOPS! They don't call it Ruination for nothing. While it's very dry, the hops seem to even it out.
O - Stone is the standard by which I measure all IPAs, and Ruination is Stone on steroids. In fact, I'm drinking one right now.

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!
