Been working my way through the best of the best of DIPA's. Stone Ruination was next on the list.
A - Pours a nice golden yellow. A good two finger head recedes to leave a nice lacing around the top of the glass.
S - Strong hop scent, not as piney or flowery as one might like.
T - A very good DIPA. Maybe a little more bitter than I typically like but otherwise very well done. Definitely deserves to be in the top tier of IIPA's.
D - Goes down easy, a little aftertaste from the bitterness, but otherwise an all around tasty beer.
M - Good body and carbonation, no complaints here.
I've definitely rank a couple of IPA's higher on my list than this one. Pliny and Green Flash to name two West Coast and Captain Lawrence and Flower Power on the East Coast. This one is easily in the top 10, just not at the very top of the list. Will drink this again.

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!
