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!

Medium translucent orange with a cream colored head. Very clear beer. The predominate scent that I can pick up is orange rinds. Very hoppy. Good lacing. Nice and bitter. Not overwhelming though. Very yummy but I like IPA’s quite a bit... Thanks Blake (1FastSIi).

Great beer! Very very hoppy! Very smooth. Nice aftertaste. Slightly fruity but not as much as their regular ipa. Overall one of the great doubles i’ve had the honor of trying. At 7.7% a 22 to yourself will kick your ass!

Strong beer with loads of hops without being overpowering (as long as you like IPA’s). Warm copper color with fruity aroma and smooth head. Has some other underlying flavors once you get through the hops.

Pours golden orange with off white head. Aroma is pine and floral. Taste is big malt followed with piney floral hop bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strange to be challenged with a taste that first impression I did not like only to be won over by its intensity and uniqueness. Pungent. Complex. Surprising. Pushing my envelope from bitterness standpoint but still judge as a buy again favorite ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Berserkir (56) - New York, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Pours a nice orange amber with very light white head that disperses almost instantly. Aroma and Flavor are nothing but a constant barrage of hops. every hop flavor you ever had come through at some point in the bottle.

cgort (56) - San Clemente, California, USA - JAN 2, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2008 Bottle. Golden amber color with a white head that quickly dissipates. Smells of intense citrus, hint of alcohol. Hoppy flavor that dances on your tongue along with a light alcohol flavor. Although very bitter I found a sweet taste somewhere in there that I can’t put into words. Good for someone who loves bitter. Also, has a slight warming in the throat.

ucfknightscott (56) - Casselberry, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2009
Pours a deep orange with a medium white head. Aroma is strong with hops, stings the nostrels. Big sticky, ctirusy hops dominate the palate, very bitter but fairly balanced. This is a man’s beer, a true hop head’s dream. Very intense but very delicious.

3.7
AndreaDel (56) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 26, 2011
Bottle. Golden and medium head. Strong hops and malt aroma. Massive resin and bitter in the mouth and subtle aroma of hops. The heavy bitterness covers and mess up all the rest.
