A: Amber, golden, clean white pillow-cloud head.
S: Dankety Dank. The Dankest bag of dank you ever stuck your nose into. Hands down the best part about the beer. The earthy DANK gives way to lime and grapefruit around the edges of the glass. No idea what kind of hops were used in this, but I'd guess there is some Columbus in there. THere is a back note of soap, like Dawn soap, but I guess they use a lot of citrus scents, so maybe thats just what I equate it with.
T: Pretty damn good. In 2012, not that revelatory. Big bitterness around the sides of the tongue. Kind of an numbing effect, as well as a spiciness. The aromatic component to this beer just lifts it up and separates it from the rest of the super IPA's out there. Some sweetness, but very light, not heavy or fruity at all. Fairly dry, but balanced. Not bone dry.
M: Medium bodied. Very well carbonated. Smooth.

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!
