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!

Diabobale (448) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - AUG 8, 2016
Dal colore dorato brillante quasi limpido, con un bel cappello di schiuma bianco abbondante e discretamente persistente, questa double ipa offre note tropicali al naso (mango e frutto della passione), lievi note citriche e una buona base di crosta di pane. Al palato entra ben decisa in amaro, con un corpo medio e dalla buona carbonazione, seppur dolciastro. Sul finire l’amaro vira verso il terroso-resinoso con una peristenza lunga e un’ottima secchezza. La bevibilità è eccezionale.
