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!

hohops (998) - Kent, - MAY 10, 2014
Appearance- amber, hazy, pure white head which persists around the edge. Aroma- nose fills with floral hops, huge fruitiness, lots of orange and orange peel. Tangy fruit, hop resins, marmalade, bit of malt. Taste- hops galore. Full mouthfeel, coats the mouth. Massive bitterness, juicy fruit, orange, lemon, grapefruit, pine, tangerine, lingering bitterness in a very long finish, fruitcake hints and some biscuity malt. Really excellent.

Bold aroma. Light in color for a double IPA. Very smooth flavor not overpowering. Awesome beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

If this were the first beer, no others would need to be made. It always reminds me of when I first tasted the nectar of gods, sneaking a sip as a yout. I’ve stopped drinking anything else, crept on a golf outing when we shotgun Jacobs best.

vinivini (2416) - Gomel, BELARUS - APR 13, 2017
Can from Stone Berlin at 8.5. Very hoppy tropical aroma. Medium body. Tons of hoppy bitterness on tongue with additional nuts. Heavy astringent bitterness. Still drinkable. Good.

Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2017
Classic DIPA from can served in a Chouffe glass: Creamy sticky airy white head. Hazy yellow body. Nose of sticky hops and it fruits. Quite cliché but oh so nice. Flavour starts sticky hoppy with hoppy fruit tones, sticky yellow fruit, little floral and light malty. Into the afgertaste the bitterness grows very well and becomes a strong bitter pattern with some grassy/herbal tints. Low carbo, creamy oily silky mouthfeel, between medium and fuller bodied but closer to medium... very nice stuff!

john44 (3101) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2017
Keg Half Pint at White Horse American Beer Festival 2009, Parsons Green, London in July 2009 - Also Bottle - Pale Amber in colour. Mega-Hoppy; piney oily resinous spicy hops. Very Fruity; very citrus-grapefruit and lemon. Malty; solid malt base, caramel. Very bitter citrus fruity and hoppy. Bottle was less extreme than the keg version tasted at The White Horse 2009. Better balanced; malts more noticeable; hops less aggressive. Nice 2IPA! (2009-07)

Lowenbrau (4277) - Asturias, SPAIN - DEC 9, 2016
Keg @BierCab, Barcelona. 05-10-215.
In short: nice robust IPA.
Pours deep gold with frothy off white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Tropical fruit, caramel nose. Medium body, average carbonation, little crispy texture. Taste follows the nose. Solid brew.

SebBrews (183) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - NOV 25, 2016
Pours a clear-ish amber color with a foamy, persistent head. Aroma: tropical fruits, mango, pine. Taste is a bittersweet juice bomb - mango, pineapple, papaya, honey. Heavy body, thick texture, medium carbonation, long bitter finish. Great.

3.9
brewtalita (330) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 23, 2016
SPicy aroma, aggresive hop profile, bit of garlic.Palate watery, low carbonation. Taste sweetish spicy like your mommas stir-fry! Very nice.

ulrikolsen (576) - DENMARK - NOV 12, 2016
[email protected] Pours hazy orange with tight lazing offwhite head. Aroma has light malt, bread, biscuit, grain, straw, grass, pine and resin. Taste is light malty with biscuit and light bread, slightly fruity, grainy and hoppy with straw, apricot, floral notes, pina and resin. Finish is balanced malty, semi-sweet, dry and moderately bitter. Good stuff!
