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!

As advertised. Strong hops yes fresh. What stands out most is I don't taste alcohol for such high hops. Fantastic. Pure. Smooth. Great aroma like I'm in a hop garden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Florida grapefruit. No it's not. Very hoppy, nice head, good color and a nice level of carbonation. The flavor is fairly unique and very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours orange with thin white head that dissipates. Nice firm hop aroma over medium carbonation. Reasonable complexity over resin flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EBD 1/14/14 Light amber pour with a light red cast. Well formed head with lasting lacing. Nice nose of citrus and pine hops against a toast and caramel sweet background. Light body with a smooth texture. Just enough carbonation to give a light effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is pretty much one dimensional - hop flavor (grapefruit over pine) flows to a prominent hop bitterness which resembles grapefruit rind. The malt is present, but only in a slight background fashion. The finish is all bitterness, but with a focus on the pine hop aspects.

I really enjoyed this beer, it has a very bitter hoppy aroma and flavor with accents of citrus . A very solid IPA overall.

Floral hoppy aroma. Pours clear amber with a white head. Bitter flavor stays bitter through the long finish.

Another hop lovers dream. If you like DIPA’s, you’ll certainly be happy with this one.

A very familiar beer for its category. Most average beer drinkers will turn their head and cough at the SIP of this concoction. Extremely well balanced for how much hops resonates in this brew. this s*** will turn your face inside out and I love it. A hop heads nirvana. Supreme

A solid 4 for a solid beer. A nice palate wrecker that has lots of hops. Exactly what I wanted it to be, but other than hops, not much here.

Flaska från Bishops arms Sundbyberg. Ljus bärnstensfärgad vätska med ljust skum. Söt humledoft med maltigt känsla typ mörk sirap. Humlig pepprig smak. Riktigt god
