I had this beer on tap at the Stone Brewery. This wonderful beer was brought to me in a nice goblet. This beer looks great, a nice caramel color, with a great off white head about two fingers. This beer laces all the way to the last drop. The aroma was nice and hoppy, floral and citrus with a tad bit of bread coming out toward the end. The taste was very bitter and delicious, this beer has a great layered hop character and a nice malty background that work great together. The bitterness was a good clean one and the hops come out as citrus and flowers. The great part of this beer is to taste all the different characteristics as the beer slowly warms up as you drink it. Once, the beer starts to get a little higher up in the temperature range this beer really opens up. Many of the hop oils and resins to come out, which adds another great dimension to this beer. The mouthfeel is great, a nice full body, with a slightly sticky feel from all the hops. Has mild carbonation, which works great with this beer. This beer has great drinkability, it is decent in alcohol but can still drink a couple of them. Wouldn't call this a session beer. I never get bored of this beer, this beer has so much to offer, from the first to last drop. The Stone Ruination is a great representation of a double IPA my and is my favorite beer.

Poured from bottle to glass. Nice head, maybe 1/4" thick. Wonderful bubbly foamy head with good lacing. Golden-yellow pour that looks delicious. Smell is citrusy and leaves you wanting to taste the beer as the smell isn't to strong. Taste is also citrus with a strong mouthful of hops. Presence is great not to bitter or much bite on the back of the tounge from the hops. Wonderful beer not only to recommend but to drink again and again.

My favorite all-time beer to date. Hoppy deliousness. Great taste. Great finish. Doesn't get much better this. If you enjoy DIPAs and hoppy IPAs. then you will enjoy this. Very hopforward with the perfect amount of bitterness with a piney, citrusy finish.
