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!

Pour is smooth with low to medium head. Color is golden orange. Smell is very hoppy lots of grain. Taste is first fruity then amazingly bitter and that lingers.

Perfect double IPA, scores a 10/10 every time when fresh ( as with all IPAs).

Smelled lots of green! I expected this to be a little more rough than it was bitter wise. Tasted some citrus! Good beer

had the pleasure of enjoying this masterpiece while witnessing the ny giants own the patriots....while the pour, nose, and head are wonderful to behold, it is the flavor that makes this IPA stand out from the crowd. it begins smooth and full on the palate, quite malty and warm. as the drink progresses, the hops slowly blossom until you are left with the incredible bitter finish. buy this. drink it. enjoy.

CLoudy golden appearance sith a frothed white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is a flowery malt with sweet undertones. Flavor is fruit like with a sharp bitterness from the overwhelmingly hopped brew. Very good. Palate bitterness holds tight and finishes with a crisp hint of sweet clover. Unique. One of my favorite IPAs. Will buy again.

This is a true hop heads beer! Extremely delicious. Slightly floral and citrusy sweet. Not as bitter as you would think. Very drinkable.. 100 IBUs?!?!?! Awesome brew..
