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!

This is what Iím talking about! Aroma is one of the most inviting Iíve ever experienced. The centennial hops just murder your taste buds. Fantastic bitter finish. Well done!

Bottle - golden amber colour with thick white head. Citrus hoppy aroma, orange peel, pine, malts. Same in the taste, but with nice sweet maltiness. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Very good.

I had it on tap at Avenue Pub in New Orleans. This is a great beer, it has a sweet hop aroma, clear amber hue, a light head, and a phenomenal hop citrus pine taste!!!

downender (5924) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle from Total Wines, Sterling VA. Hazy gold with a slight, off-white head. Massive hopping, grapefruit and pine and not much by way of balancing malt, before a rapsing dry finish. A bit too extreme for me.

Pizd (429) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a clear golden amber with a white head, loads of lacing. Big tropical fruit aroma with hints of lemon, caramel, bread, malt, oranges, peaches, grass. Flavour is an instant whack of citrussy hop bitterness, lemon zest in particular. Orange pith and grapefruit peak through then it mellows into a sweet malty/caramel finish. Sticks around on the palate for an ungodly amount of time. Quality.

On tap at Westow House. A welcome surprise to find this on tap. Pours a hazy gold colour with a white head. Light trop fruit aroma with some lemon. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Tangerine, funky fruit, big grapefruit bitterness. Yep, tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2014 Bomber. Citrus and pine hops smell delicious. Very poignant. Nice copper color with just off white head. Very nice lacing. Taste is obviously mucho hoppo. And my tongue enjoys it. The hops didnít smack me in the face like I anticipated, but they made a strong appearance nonetheless. Great IPA.

Bottle. Very strong citrus & tropical fruit aroma. Strong grapefruit and hop bitterness hits hard, followed by orange peel and sweet malt to take just enough edge off the bitterness. Good solid body. Fantastic double IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
