    This is one of my favourite beers. It's Stone, through and through. Ruination taken to the extreme.

    I wonder how this batch will differ to previous years now that Ruination has been changed to Ruination 2.0 (which I've yet to try).

      Never tried it, I don't think its available in my area either. Can you describe the flavor of the previous batch?

        Last year's RuinTen was everything Stone is about. The nose is very strong on tropical fruit notes. The overwhelming flavour for me was pineapple. I felt like I was chewing on dried pineapple which was fantastic. The bitterness to me didn't seem as strong as the Ruination. I think the bigger malt bill and more booze helps in masking that bitterness up.

          What's the alcohol content? If its anything above 8% then it's not for me as it just tastes like flavored malt liquor at that stage :D

            ABV: 10.8% IBUs: 110

            Not a session beer then!

    I might try to find this again, last year I think I was late to the party and when I finally got a pint the hops seemed to have turned and it was not the pleasant hopfest I was looking for.

      A friend of mine had a similar problem.

    Just ordered this from Tavour - can't wait till I can pick it up. The supposed flavors that all of the hops generate is what really drew me to it, I'm hoping it's not just a bitter explosion.
