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!

Nice #hoppy #aroma with about an inch head. Bitter hoppy taste in your mouth. Going down it gets more bitter and it ends with a strong hop taste. Great #beer.

phikus (80) - syracuse, New York, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Aroma of pine citrus and a whiff of biscuit malt. The taste follows with a swelling dank pine bitterness that uses up the entire malt backbone to stay balanced on a dime. Not sure if this is more ingredients of what makes their IPA or something different. This is a solid double IPA.

Pours a moderately hazy golden amber with a big white head that slowly shrinks and leaves tons of lace. Aroma is tropical fruits, sweet oranges, and grapefruit peel. Flavour is grapefruit, tropical fruits, resin, mild sweet orange, medium lingering bitterness and a good dry finish.

Bork (335) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Massively bitter brew with loads of pine and resin. Good, sturdy body to lean on but it still gets just a bit too much. No alcohol on nose or palate.

Pours clear light orange with white head.
Aroma citrus, grapefruit, pine, resin, caramel, orange, some tropical fruits.
Taste caramel sweet, piney citrus bitter.
Mouthfeel oily, sticky, dry.
What an amazing beer! So so nicely bitter with a sweet touch, great nose. Simply amazing.

AbbeyRoade (401) - Missouri, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Way too bitter to be enjoyable. It’s like a bad version of the Stone Go To IPA, which is pretty close to ideal in every way. This brew is just overwhelmingly hard to swallow.

650ml brown bottle. Pours golden with haze. Small but clingy white cap. The nose has peels of orange and grapefruit with a little sweetness, nice and bright. Taste has orange peels, grapefruit, lesser pine notes - a zippy hop profile. Medium bitterness, soem grapefruit in the aftertaste and mild malt notes. Medium bodied. Not as aggressive as the name would suggest, but a very well done double IPA, actually fairly balanced and easy to drink.

hangunder (275) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014
Smells great, super citrus mixed well with a nice sweet malt. Hazy golden with streaming effervescence and long lasting foamy white head. Tastes very nice and balanced, upfront tangerine melon and caramel malt finish with a lasting bitterness. Bitterness not overwhelming or unpleasant. Medium bodied, average carbonation. A great, if not overly complex, IPA.
