COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Big, robust, hearty nose. A jab of lemongrass and floral aromatics. The flavor is like a bull rush of hops, unbridled bitterness, unwieldy pine accents. This is Stone IPA on steroids. The fact that this epicurean brew is also crisp and refreshing is an ode to this brewery’s artisan craftsmanship. Cheers!

mgajdaczewa (920) - Katowice, POLAND - AUG 4, 2015
W aromacie lekki tropik, lekkie żywice, nieco utlenienia i, co u nas ciągle zbyt rzadkie, wyraźna ciasteczkowa słodowość, zbalansowany. W smaku również niezły balans, odpowiednio soczyste, wyraźna goryczka, ale i fajne biszkopty/ciasteczka po stronie słodowej. Nacisk bardziej na żywice niż na tropiki, brak cytrusów. Niewielkie utlenienie (ice tea, lekki miód). Nic cudów, ale smaczne piwo.

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. 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 owoców cytrusowych, smak lekko słodowo-słodkawy z potężną, chmielową goryczką w finiszu - ale przyjemną, nie zalegającą. Nieprzyzwoicie pijalne jak na swoje parametry. Do miliona powodów, żeby przenieść się do Kalifornii dołącza kolejny. Yummy!

tricksta_p (1963) - 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, it’s certainly my kind of IPA.
