22oz, did not see a date other than the cap that reads Ten Years & Brewing Strong! 1996-2006
Pours a somewhat hazy orange color with a modest head of off white bubbles. Almost instantly upon pouring, the aroma of pineapples was detected. Sweet pineapple and a bit of sticky pine resin in the aroma. Taste is as expected. Massive pine and citrus hop flavors. Long, intense bitterness in the aftertaste. My mouth is watering after every sip. Hops overwhelm what malt may have been there to bring this up to 7.7%abv. Body on the light-medium side. Some alcohol in the aftertaste, especially as it warms. I loved this unbalanced, but still delicious, IIPA.

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
