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!

Strong aroma has citrus hoppiness. Under this caramel malting. Hazy honey yellow. Short head leaves thin lacing. Taste is strongly aromatic, full feel. Bit sticky sweetness ends in dry finish. Nick ipa has also high bitterness but is to my liking. Recommended.

Pours a hazy light orange, substantial white head with lots of lacing. Pine hops dominate the nose, not much else sneaks through. solid double ipa. Resiny pine dominates taste too. wonderful and hoppy, with a sweet middle. Smooth mouthfeel. Pleasant beer.

Big white foamy head over a clear golden body. Aroma of zesty citrus, grass, apricot. Taste of upfront bitterness, and then some more bitterness. Lemon, grass, some oxidation, and some more bitterness. Finish is long, zesty, and...Bitter. (get the picture yet?)

GIJOE (1078) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - APR 17, 2013
Pours amber with a frothy white head. Aroma is a hop overdose with huge floral notes. Flavor is overwhelmingly bitter but I love it in spite of myself. Medium body, frenetic carbonation. Very nice brew, even though I'm not a big IPA fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
