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!

BlazerT (1197) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - NOV 4, 2016
Bottle. Sensoric. Golden, clear with medium, semi-thick, white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma are mostly piney with medium tropical fruits notes (mango, pineapple), also some citrus character (grapefruit, mandarin). All this is nicely balanced with bread malty profile. Nice combination of hops. Taste is medium bitter, broken by semi-sweet malty profile. Medium body, creamy and smooth texture, average carbonation, finish is big hoppy, fresh, malty. In general very clear and hoppy IPA, a little bit overrated here, but go for it.

The most prevelant feature of this beer to me is pine sap, the aroma, flavor, aftertaste and even the color bear a strong resimbalence to pine sap (in a good way of course). Like the bottle warns watch out for the bitterness, however it goes down rather smooth considering the IBU’s. Overall it was a pretty good IIPA not sure if its my favorite but its up there. Originally rated on 10/28/08.

Michael27 (2211) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2016
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. It’s real !!!

Lore (2820) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 3, 2016
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!
