A- a golden orange, really nice looking beer.
S- this beer promises an assault on the senses and it delivers. This is not for the casual beer fan. My nasal passages cleared and for a second I thought I could see into the future. This beer smells exactly like an ipa should.
T- I feel like I've been hit in the face with a burlap sack full of hops and I love it. I'll warn you again, it you don't love ipa's then stay away from this beer. If you drink an entire 6 pack of this beer your first born will most likely enter this world with hop breath.
M- This beer engulfs your mouth in hop flavor. I could find nothing wrong with the mouthfeel despite the fact that I think this stuff could probably be used as paint thinner.
O- overall this beer is very close to ideal for the style. It is overhopped to the extreme and should only be handled by professionals. The ABV tends to signify an ipa while the hop profile leans heavily towards a double. This conflict brings down the score slightly based on style. Outside of that, this is another great beer from the hop geniuses at 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!
