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!

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 :-)

Bottle. Really nice hoppy Nose, with a very clear note og citrus. Crisp taste, fresh and hoppy. Abrupt bitter finish. Slick texture. Full body, soft carbonation, good!

Bottle. No detailed notes - entering from older tastings. With over 3500 ratings, what could I add anyway? Good stuff.

Poured from bottle cloudy orange with a one finger head. Aromas of fruit, citrus, and sweet hops. Taste is similar with a long piney grapefruit finish.

wiwetu (83) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUL 16, 2015
Aromaty owocw cytrusowych, smak lekko słodowo-słodkawy z potężną, chmielową goryczką w finiszu - ale przyjemną, nie zalegającą. Nieprzyzwoicie pijalne jak na swoje parametry. Do miliona powodw, żeby przenieść się do Kalifornii dołącza kolejny. Yummy!

tricksta_p (3936) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2015
Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, grapefruit, pine, floral notes, hint of caramel malt, massive hops. Flavour is light sweet with a long bitter finish. Perfect balance and quite easily drinkable. This gets dangerously close to IPA perfection, its certainly my kind of IPA.

DrAlexandre (22) - Niteroi, BRAZIL, BRAZIL - JUL 10, 2015
Colorao mbar turva. Espuma bege de mdia formao e longa durao. Aroma explosivo e duradouro de um floral intenso, ctrico de maracuj e pinho. Sabor inicialmente frutado de maracuj com notas florais e leve resinosidade herbal. Dulor frutado e ctrico de grapefruit tambm percebido ao longo dos goles. Final de um amargor suave e ctrico e permanece por bastante tempo no retrogosto. Textura aveludada. Carbonatao moderada corpo elevado. Uma DIPA perfeita.

tightslice (1115) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 9, 2015
On tap at Martins West. Perhaps Ive said this before, but this might be the quintessential Big Boy West Coast IPA. Massive, thick, pine-y, stewy hops. This isnt beer...its bouillon. Although barely enough for Santa Rosas own Jason Jones.
