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!

Orange beer with thin white head and nice lacing. Apricots and hops in the aroma. More hops, along with malt in the palate, has nice body to it. Finish is not all that bitter. A good beer, I didnít think it was overdone on the hops.

I really enjoyed the first half of this large bottle but after that the hops were overpowering for me. Iíd buy it again though just so I can train my taste buds to appreciate good beer. It was as well balanced a beer as it could be. Buy this if you like hops.

pours a gorgeous gold/copper hue, with a nice off white head that dissipated quickly with nice lacing. incredibly strong hop aromas with an equally strong pine tip aroma. bitter is an understatement for this IPA. overwhelmingly bitter with a very strong pine tip taste with a nice smooth bittersweet ending. very memorable finish. overall, probably a little intimidating for the average beer drinker; but for an IPA enthusiest.... RAVISHING!

Crystal clear brassy color with a thin, but almost constantoff white head. Hoppy ans sweet like an IPA should be. A bit bitter, but if youíre into that youíll love it.

This has to be the best beer ever made. I am a huge fan of hops and I canít imagine a beer having more than this one. Wonderfully bitter too. If you like to "torture" yourself with powerfully hoppy/bitter beers like I do than this is the beer for you.

Dark golden with a white head. Very strong hop aroma. Taste is very hoppy and very bitter. Iím not a huge bitter fan, but this grew on me. I prefer the balance of the DFH 90-minute IPA, though.

Bottle. Pours a honey color with fluffy white head. The aroma is strong, zesty hops and a touch of malty sweetness. The flavor is powerful floral hops, and lots of íem, almost to the point of being overwhelming, with a bit of malt in the background. But, of course, this is Stone, so they manage to make a tasty beverage out of something that would be otherwise undrinkable because of its intensity.

66 cl bottle. Golden to amber colour with a nice white head. Big aroma of citrus and tropical fruit. Very hoppy flavour with a very bitter finish. Very tasteful...
