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!

RajnCajn (11) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 12, 2016
Enjoyable DIPA, heavy on the citrus based hops and plenty aroma notes in the area as well. Nice color and finish, head hangs out for a minute. Can seem a little sweet at times especially as it warms and more of the flavors come out. Good drinkable beer though, try it if you havent.

Rask0lnikov (1194) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 10, 2016
On tap at TCBW 2016. Pale yellow colour. Medium white head. Really refreshing aroma. Mango, tangerines in my nose. Lirs of other tropical fruits. Juicy. Peachy, citrussy beginning. Slightly bitter and citrussy in the middle. Hints of black tea. Flowery and citrussy finish. Definitely on the best IPAs I ever had. Refreshing drink.
