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!

Bygers (1169) - 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 (1560) - 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.

Hopmaestro (1440) - rebro, 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.

mgajdaczewa (1858) - Katowice, POLAND - AUG 4, 2015
W aromacie lekki tropik, lekkie żywice, nieco utlenienia i, co u nas ciągle zbyt rzadkie, wyraźna ciasteczkowa słodowość, zbalansowany. W smaku rwnież niezły balans, odpowiednio soczyste, wyraźna goryczka, ale i fajne biszkopty/ciasteczka po stronie słodowej. Nacisk bardziej na żywice niż na tropiki, brak cytrusw. Niewielkie utlenienie (ice tea, lekki mid). Nic cudw, ale smaczne piwo.

Golden colour; great, white head and beautiful lacing. Sweet, malty aroma, some herbs and citrus fruits. Taste is also malty and herbal with nice medium bitterness. Also fruits in taste
