Ruination by Stone Brewing Company pours a cloudy, orange color with a thin cream colored head. Citrus, piney, and floral hop notes create a wonderful bouquet for the senses. Slighty toasted bread flavors quickly yield on the palate for some serious hop bitterness. The onslaught of grapefruit and pineapple citrus, gooey pine resin, and grassy earthiness are quite welcomed as they are delicately balanced with the sweetness of the malt. Medium in both body and carbonation, Ruination comes out incredibly well-balanced.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a 8 oz snifter.

A- pours a light caramel with a 2 finger white head. Blotches of lacing remain on the glass.

S- caramel, grapefruit, oranges, and pine

T- caramel, pale malts, citrus rind, bitter pine finish

M- medium body and carbonation. Sticky, syrupy and a slight dry finish

O- good dipa. More citrus aromas then in the taste.
