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!

OmegaX (1372) - Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Aroma full of honey-like, caramel malts with loads of pine trees and grapefruit. Orange peel is in the nose as well. Sweeter than I expected for the aroma. Very pleasant. Poured a nice, murky, light amber color with creamy white head that stuck around for a bit. Wow, this is one of the more bitter IPA’s I’ve had and I’ve had quite a few "extremely bitter" IPAs. Even so, I can still pull out the maltiness of the beer behind all of the hops. If the bottle said "Made with 100% pure pine sap", I would believe it. Pretty good.

MaBeer1972 (1822) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Sweet and spicy aromas. A light copper brew with good carbonation. Flavor is intensely hoppy, but surprisingly well balances with a fair amount of sweet malts on the backside. Finish is long an bittering. Big spruce-floral notes. Not that fruity, althought the sweet malts may lead that way a little. Not as good as Double Jack, IMO.

MiP (15264) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2011
Draught, 7.7%. Sweet hoppy aroma. Cloudy grey yellow colour. The flavour starts off with a distinct teaish note. Becomes a little sweet and then slightly alcohol. Finishes with a distinct but clean bitterness.

Usually 75+IBU beer ends up tasting like grapefruit juice, but this stuff is actually fairly mild, in a good way. There’s a grainy, bready aspect to it, maybe a little citrus. It’s not as extreme as I had heard, and I think that made it more drinkable. It’s a solid beer, but not especially memorable.
