Looks like a perfect IPA, in my opinion. Opaque and golden orange with a finger of head.

Smells like dry west coast IPA hops with a slight malt undertone. Really good so far.

Tastes ultra west coast IPA hoppy. Definitely can taste every one of the IBU's. Pine up front with grapefruit lingering for a while. Excellent.

Coats the mouth with the dryness. Good mouthfeel for an IPA.

Overall this is one of the better IPA's out there. Stone is usually always good in my eyes, and Ruination is a fine example.

A - Lovely clear orange pour with a cream colored head. Not particularly persistent, the head did not leave much lacing.

S - Pine is king here, with floral and grass notes. Not much fruit to be found.

T - Explosion of pine and floral hops. As with the smell, not much in the way of citrus. Bitter finish is not a surprise, but the bitterness, though strong, is not unpleasant.

M - Clean, crisp, with moderate carbonation, and drying on the end.

O - A fine example of the IPA that glories in the clean pines and floral notes of the hop over its citrus qualities. A brew that embraces the bitterness of the IPA. I found it a very satisfying drinking experience.
