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!

Hoppy for sure! Aroma is citrus, agrum, passionfruit, hint of vanilla, dough, a bit resinous (bottle was 2,5months old) Taste is hops, hops, hops, caramel, long bitter finish. Very tasty double IPA, not too resinous, not too sweet, nice bitter dry finish. Love it.

Bouteille bue en avril 2014. 8.2% bien caché! Bel équilibre, longue amertume. Pamplemousse. Zeste d’orange. Ne réinvente pas le genre mais c’est efficace.

Deep gold pour, medium frothy light tan head, fair bit of sticky lacing. Mango and pine aroma, quite strong. Taste is a hop blast as expected, though there’s some caramel malt that comes through in the heavier body. Medium body and just enough carbonation to keep it smooth.

Une belle amertume malheureusement pas Assez révélée par un nez plutôt faible.

Love Ruination, and I do most all Stone products. The hopping here is fantastic, lots of intense flavors with citrus and to me almost a mint/piny taste. A tad to "bitter" for me, but I still buy this all the time.
