COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Please note that the Ruination produced in Europe is the Ruination Double IPA 2.0
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!

hopscotch (10614) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2003 This beer really, really rocks. It is the color of liquid Gold with an albino white head. The aroma is very floral. Smells like a hop blossom... ok, an entire acre of the little green bastards. The flavor? HOPS, malt, HOPS, slightly pungent... did I mention HOPS? This beer has a very dry, crisp, fizzy finish. Unbelievably smooth for a 100+ IBUer. HOPHEADS REJOICE. Wait! I think I just burped up a little green flower. Nope, false alarm.

650 ml bottle. From the US. HHOK blind tasting. Thanks Brandman.
Hazy amber colour with small to average white head. Strong hoppiness in aroma with pine/birch/wood, resin, grapefruit and some American hoppy sweetness. Flavour is dry hoppy with resin and sweaty birch (vihta). Long lasting hoppy aftertaste.

faroeviking (10295) - FAROE ISLANDS - NOV 26, 2007
Bottle. Pours a deep bit hazy golden colour with a very nice medium creamy head. Sweet, very fruity, hoppy, flowery aroma. Very good dry mouthfeel. The flavour is very dry with some sweetness, lots of flowers and ripe fruits and stuffed with hops. Very, very dry hoppy finish. Great dryness!

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2007
This nice beer has a wonderful warm amber color and a huge, white head. The aroma is wonderfully hoppy with notes of citrus, resin, grass and something that reminds me of a nice cheese (not old/smelly). The flavour has notes of citrus, fruits like tangerine and melon, caramel, a light sweetness, nice resin and bitterness. The body is very full and very harmonic - Iím in love!!! Thank you Tom/Afeter4ever for this very nice beer!
