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!

Copied from my BA review. Hops: Magnum, Chinook, Centennial. 100+ IBUs. 10.13.14 Enjoy by date. Poured from a bomber into a tulip on 09.11.14. A: 3 finger head. See through orange. Great lacing. Head retains well. S: Grapefruit over anything else. I could smell it from an armís length away while pouring. Fantastic! T: Grapefruit and melon dominate. It also has pineapple, flower, and hop resin. M: Creamy and crisp with perfect carbonation. O: This one is a perfect West Coast IIPA. I finally got around to trying this one and it blew me away. Itís very citrusy, the alcohol is completely hidden, and itís very easy to drink. It has a nice candied tropical fruit flavor too, but this isnít overwhelmingly strong as it is in others. I donít like a heavy malt presence in IPAs, and this doesnít have that thankfully. Iím putting the empty bottle on my beer shrine! Thank you Beer Jesus (aka Greg Koch)!

Tap at Brewdog Manchester (4-1-2015). Clear golden colour with aroma of citrus and grapefruit from the hops. Bitter taste, with grapefruit and citrus again. You donít taste the IBUís anymore after some sips.

Bottle in Brewdog Nottingham. A favourite of mine! On the nose, Lemon, grapefruit, orange, clove? Sweet malts on the taste with serious hoppiness, flavours much the same as the aroma.

AgentAle (833) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 5, 2015
Aroma is clove, lemon grass, grapefruit, passionfruit and light crystal malts. Taste is a nice sweet malt body with light roastiness. Taste transitions to a full hop body with flavors similar to the aroma. For over 100 ibus, finishes surprisingly smooth. Appearance is a clear orange/gold with a medium pearl head that retains very well.

It is a great beer. Orange, pine aroma and flavor. It has a more deep piney than citric character. Well attenuated, dry.

Claves77 (160) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Great golden clear color with thin white lace head. hop smell, but mild by DIPA standards. Strong acidic taste that hits right away and lingers. Not one of my favorite flavors.

Color is orangeish golden with nice white head. Aroma is slightly dank, citrus and some pine. Taste is smooth with pine and grapefruit. This beer is much mellower than it used to be. Or beers have just gotten more ballsier. Stiil very good. Solid.
