COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
So called because of the immediate ruinous effect on your palate. 100+ IBUs. Bracingly bitter. Thick, pungent hop aroma. We would say that no hops were injured in the brewing of this beer, but that would be a massive lie. In fact, the words "Stone Ruination IPA" are what older hop vines use to cause little hop vines to quiver with fright and lose sleep at night . We at Stone honor the brutal massacre of countless hops with this "Liquid poem to the glory of the hop!" Paganism at its best!

Wyśmienite piwo. IPA podwójne. Moc chmielu jest tu zaznaczona porządnie, wyższy poziom alkocholu wogóle nie wyczuwalny. Aromatyczne chmiele wprost wirują nad mocną pianą w pintowej szklanicy. Polecam szczególnie.

Love Ruination, and I do most all Stone products. The hopping here is fantastic, lots of intense flavors with citrus and to me almost a mint/piny taste. A tad to "bitter" for me, but I still buy this all the time.

Botella 33 cl tomada en el momento en alt strase Gijón 24..12..2015. Embotellada 21..09..2015 hasta 17..06..2016 (grabado en botella). (r3429). Color amarillento dorado velado con espuma blanca persistente. Aromas y sabores intensos destacando sobretodo lupulos verdes y frescos acabando con amargo no muy pronunciado. Cuerpo medio a intenso bastante líquido, fino y fácil de beber apesar de sus 8.5 vol. Bastante buena. Para repetir sin duda.

Turboninja (342) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2015
Bottle@Beer Culture, NYC, USA. Medium, rich aroma of over aged mango. Deep golden color with medium white head and slightly hazy liquid. Strong, sturdy balanced taste overaged mango, some piney bite and a hint of malts. Wide taste spectrum and long smooth hoppy aftertaste with sweet malts. Medium body with medium/low carbonation. Overall, schoolbook like American DIPA with not so much sweetness and with piney twist. Superb.

Robe ambrée et limpide. Jolie mousse qui tient bien. Arômes de fruits exotiques et biscuit. Goût biscuit, caramel, fruits confits, fruits exotiques. Les fruits exotiques restent en bouche. Longue en bouche. Une très bonne IPA.
