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!

Golden yellow, cloudy beer with some white head. Aroma of pines and fruits. Flavour is bitter with pines and grapefruit. Plenty of grapefruit alltogether.

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.

On draft at Stone Brewery. Pours golden with an off white head and sweet hoppy aroma. Taste is of fresh hops, grapefruit, and citrus notes with a bittersweet finish. Very drinkable, good IPA

Bluebane (5) - - FEB 25, 2013 does not count
Very good if not remarkable IPA - aggressively hopped and very bitter, but a nice taste. It does indeed ruin your palate. Gorgeous presentation and bottling.

maekchu (3460) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 27, 2013
Bomber (notes from tasting session). 2008 vintage. Grassy, citrusy, and musty. A very mixed aroma. Initial flavors has mandarin orange and zesty orange peel. Mid palate goes sweet with maltiness. Final tends to dryness. Overall, a good balance, but a somewhat cloying aftertaste.
