Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2012
A little hazy red/brown colored beer, with a thick foamy off white head. The aroma of lot of hop bitters with some fruits. The taste is dry bitter, moving to more bitter. A little spices. The aftertaste is bitter, bitter and bitter with some alcohol.

mrmartin (780) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Copper/amber pour with huge creamy off white head. Big piney nose. medium body with velvety mouthfeel. Solid malt backbone with bitter boozy finish. Big beer but not the hop monster you might expect but big nonetheless.

Brenhophead (681) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2012
Pours amber with a small white head and an amazing aroma of caramel/pine/citrus. A very nice flavour to this beer nice citrus/pine flavour backed by the caramel malt. Alas this beer is all about hops and wow they have made it incredibly bitter even with the massive malt backing. This is my 100th rating and i wanted to have a special beer and i have certainly achieved that goal.

jackl (6691) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Tap. Deep orange with a small eggshell head. The nose is full of horsehair, barnyard, citrus fruit, funk. The taste is quite citrusy. Then man, does the bitterness it. VERY bitter. This makes Stone Ruination taste like vanilla ice cream. You still do get the citrus and funky accents coming through, but this really is an exercise in bitterness. Body is reasonably well constructed, and suprisingly not difficult to drink given the tough assignment. Overall, I wouldn’t buy a 6-pack of the stuff, but it’s worth a look at.

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Bottle with Carla. Pours a mirkey red/orange/brown with off-white foam. Smells like a big bag of hops. Tastes sweet with a big bitter back and a strong plant matter feel. Ends with alcohol and grapefruit/pineapple.

Amazing amber brown colour, and fantastic creamy head. Nose is very earthy, as is the hop character, with an undertlying sweetness. Everything I expected it to be and more

7ris7an (80) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - DEC 17, 2011
tulip. It appears unclear with a brown body and a tan color head and a long lasting lacing. It smells very hopy, grassy and wet cardboard essence. Of course tons of hops and its incredibly yeasty, lime peel, and a lot of the white peel u get from the grape fruit and some how there is some sweetness in the middle. the mouth feel is not the greatest but it has good carbonation. Overall this beer almost hits spots perfectly. Note: a most get every time, I mean on the first sip a tear dropped.

AlbertC (276) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2011
Bottle, 16 months old Aroma is hops, grass, citrus flowers, sweet crystal malts. Taste is first fresh, some sweet malts, moving over to floral hops, spicy hops, then to bitterness and rather big body malts, then lingering bitterness for at least 30 seconds.
