For the past few years I haven't been able to get myself to like Stone Brewing Co. I'd tried Levitation, Vertical Epic, and the ever popular Arrogant Bastard (and Double Bastard) and just haven't gotten what the fuss was about. None of those beers were particularly bad, but they didn't strike me as being as good as I could have got for the price. However, after putting down a six pack of Ruination this week I'm a believer. Hell, I'm even convinced now that some of the other Stone beers I had could have been past their prime or infected in some way.
Ruination is an excellent example of a west coast style IPA every step of the way. It pours an orange amber with ample foamy head. Smells of evergreen, bitter hops and citrus. Feels great in your mouth, complimentary carbonation, and well masked alcohol. I also highly appreciate the fact that you can get a six pack of ruination fairly readily.
