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!

Nice light Amber color nearly clear with medium head. Aroma full of citrus and tropikalnych fruits, resin and a hinch of caramel from malt. Taste: full of citrus and orange zest, hinch of caramel and mango, resin finish. Medium carbonated, dry/Semi dry refreshing beer. Bitterness is acurate and it not last long.

mgajdaczewa (2164) - 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 również niezły balans, odpowiednio soczyste, wyraźna goryczka, ale i fajne biszkopty/ciasteczka po stronie słodowej. Nacisk bardziej na żywice niż na tropiki, brak cytrusów. Niewielkie utlenienie (ice tea, lekki miód). Nic cudów, ale smaczne piwo.

Aromat mix wszystkiego czego oczekujesz od lupulin czyli sosna zywica duzo tropikow wszystko podszyte lekka slodowoscia. W smaku likierowate cos jakby wytrawne poteznie nachmielone barley wine. Mega pijalne dobre piwo!

From my backlogg: Draught at Steampunk Bar, Gothenburg. Clear amber beer with an offwhite head. Hoppy fruity grassy aroma. Similar flavour with nice dry bitterness. Really lovely refreshing beer :-)
