Leave it to Stone to take it over the top and do is successfully. What a fabulous Imperial IPA. Aroma is hops of course, but there are hop aromas of pine, citrus, flowers, and fruit. I can hold the glass about 8" from my nose and still detect the aroma, it makes the hair on my arm stand up. Pours a great gold hue with lots of thick white head that creates a decent amount of lacing. Great mouthfeel, surprisingly full and creamy. Flavor is jam packed with hops which wasn't a surprise. Fortunately you can also enjoy a good amount of malts. What is truly spectacular is that although it bites you right away the incredible amount of hops actually blend well and fade into a nice smoooth finish. I'm sure that I shouldn't be talking very close to anybody right now but this one works well. 100+ IBU's is crazy and for this beer to mesh and work out as great as it does deserves a round of applause.

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!
