jazz88 (2665) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Bottle. A dark murky orange brown color with a lush tan head. A big fruity and hoppy aroma with intense bitterness. A sweet, syrupy and hop filled flavor.

dinkle50 (1364) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Cloudy amber pour. Single finger head with a ton of lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit. Sweet tropical fruit dominates the first taste, but the bitter after taste is what really shows up and holds up to the "1000 IBU" claim. Pretty boozy taste. Not bad. I’m glad I tried this.

musinj6 (500) - Dedham, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 27, 2012
Pours a murky yellow with small head that leaves sparing amounts of lacing. Heavy malt aromas with heavy grapefruit hops. Boozy. Hints of plum. Medium bodied with soft carbonation with average, bitter finish. Moderately sweet up front that is overtaken by bitterness for the rest of the tasting. Very good.

Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Dark hazy amber/orange color. Grape, citrus and hops aroma. First flavor thought is back of the tongue hops. Fresh tasting, not a ton of body going on.

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 (695) - 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 (7063) - 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.
