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!

12 ounce bottle pours a medium yellow color slightly cloudy with a white head the dissipates quickly. Moderate pine aroma. Huge hit of hop bitterness upfront. large mouth feel. Medium level of carbonation. A bit harsh in the end.... just Ok.

Pours light yellow with medium head. Aroma: a lot of grass, herbs and some citrus. Taste: very grassy and refreshing, nice hops strike in the palate. ABV very well hidden, especially because the beer seems super refreshing and drinkable. Good one.

Aroma is very floral hops and some sweet caramel malts. Taste is red grapefruit and sweet caramel malts in the middle of the tongue. There is some peppery, crackery bread notes that finish.

Andrus86 (143) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2015
TAP. Slight hazy golden pour, fluffy white head disappears quickly. Not a huge nose, but subtle sweet biscuit malts... Taste is a mix of sweet hops & resin, orange in the middle, with a good sticky bitter back end. Source Pourhouse

Wow. What a great (d)ipa! It is incredibly bitter, but that doesn't mean that it loses taste. First sip already gives you hints of this grower: more and more the floral hops and malts come forward in an exquisite dance. Highly recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)
