A: Little below average head size, beautiful retention & lacing. Very lively, carbonation looks perfect. Head size was only thing preventing a higher score.
S: Grapefruit, floral, and hops. MMM hops. This bad boy is begging me to START DRINKING! Characteristics are a little light, and that's what prevented a higher score.
T: Geez, the texture is amazing. Grapefruit and hops again dominate the front end of the taste. However the hops aren't making it bitter at all. Also taste pine on the backend. Awesome tasting brew.
M: Very smooth, perfectly carbonated, plain & simple, perfect mouthfeel.
D: Umm, based on AST&M (above), you can see I could drink this all night. Only thing preventing me would be the 7.7%, might be a short night. :)
Cheers Stone, you guys continue to impress me; keep up the good work.

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
