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!

Fresh from the tap at Gesundbrewing in the Castle Pub. Golden-yellow in the glass with stable white head. Genial !!! The whole spectrum, what the hopd can give. Long bitterness in the mouth (100+ IBUs!!!). A so called beer for the fame of the hops. Its real !!!

clear golden colour, huge, creamy yellowish off-white head; aroma of overripe grapefruit, tangerine, maybe mango, too, pine resin, and some herbal notes; taste is the same with biscuits, syrupy notes and some peppery spiciness; perfect balance of hops and malts! I love it!

Keg at Bitter Phew. Look, its good, but not worth wetting your kecks over. Kind of like the NZ Sauvignon Blanc trend, the mega hoppy IPA thing will probably fade as the hipsters grow up. Hazy orange, off white head. Big citrus hoppy aroma with slight flowery edge prepares you for..... surprise surprise.... a big hoppy hit that hangs around for ages in a long bitter bitter finish. Kecks remain thankfully bone dry
