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!

i think it smells really malty to be honest, amber gold body with some white lacing, sweet grapefruit leads into the hop bitterness, rather good but need more actual flavour!

A murky copper colour with a long lasting off white head. Getting stone fruit and pine on the nose, a bit of citrus thrown in too - pretty hefty. This is so incredibly smooth. There’s the usual pine and resin culprits to taste - the big hop flavour makes it hard to pin point any particular flavours; it’s just big. That’s not to say the balance isn’t there - plenty of malt back end to round it out and dull down the harsh a little. Velvet finish - which is really saying something, given the barrage of bitterness leading into it. Well carbonated and good thickness. Sweet.

Poured honey gold with no head into a taster. The nose shows a lot of pine & mango with some sweet malts. The palate is medium bodied with light carbonation showing flavors of lightly juicy pineapple. Simple & easy IPA.

JoTheO (208) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2015
Bottle 355ml. Pours copper hazy with a fairly dense head. Thick aroma, almost a bit salty with lots of hops and some malty caramel notes. Taste reflects the aroma with the addition of herbs and licquorice. Looong bitter finish.

Bygers (1185) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2015
On tap 0,33l at Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Pours a copper colour and leaves a nice lacing that stays. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, grapefruit, pine, floral notes, hint of caramel malt, massive hops. Taste is light sweet with a long bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

McWorta (1627) - LUXEMBOURG - SEP 2, 2015
opalescent deep golden with a fading pillowy off white head, good lacings. A bit resinous, spruce/pine light earthy and citrus zest with a faint hue of caramel. Softly carbonated with a stingy presence, rather slick yet light texture and a medium body. Very swift buiscuity malt sweetness builds up a resinous, spruce hop bitterness. This builds and builds going into a dry astringency. Bone splitting dry lasting finish. Interesting.

4.4
Hopmaestro (1653) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2015
aroma is hoppy and grassy but with a heavy malt smell underneath. The taste... groovy, heavy hops, pine, citrus leading into a sweet ending - you know the drill. The bitch slap from the bitterness when it takes over is fantastic, it takes a choke hold on you and stays there.
