This beer is very enjoyable very hoppy can be a bit to much for other very Strong has a good hang seriously the taste stays in your mouth quite a bit but can be addicting to drink after the first sip its not a beer I would recommend for someone trying an IPA for the first time but over all to its a great beer to have especially with some food

Stone Ruination IPA is Perfect!!! and IS the best IPA I've enjoyed.
The bitterness is the best I've experienced in the Pale Ale beer quest. The mouth feel is nirvana and my taste-buds sing with thanks to this excellent entry. Well done and Bravo Stone Brewing!!
Had this beer on the Pacific Surf-liner on a day trip from San Clemente, Ca. to Old Town San Diego. Ask Jeff to make you Bloody Mary.. It was AWESOME as well!!!
