Hazy and golden pour, with heavy carbonation that produces generous, fluffy, two-finger-deep head.

Intense, buttery and bitter hops hit contour the aroma. I detected notes of citrus and pine, but you can tell it's going to be super sharp and bitter.

Flavor follows the nose, and just as I thought it would, Ruination proceeds to wreck the palate at first sip. It's very bright, and makes it hard to pick out the flavors and components once you've begun. Some would say it grabs your attention, I prefer to say it kills any possibility of enjoying other beers after this one (at least in the same evening).

Overall, I enjoyed Ruination, but not as much as other offerings from Stone... Like Enjoy By.
