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!

AgentAle (944) - 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.

Rodriguez (313) - Quito, ECUADOR - JAN 5, 2015
It is a great beer. Orange, pine aroma and flavor. It has a more deep piney than citric character. Well attenuated, dry.

Claves77 (161) - 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.

mikedevilsfan (223) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 4, 2015
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.

DarkSong (327) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - DEC 28, 2014
12 oz bottle. It pours a hazy pale golden color with a small white head. It has the aroma of pine and grapefruit from hops. It is bitter and dry and tastes like lemon zest, grapefruit, resin and pine. Good beer.

mybrainhurts (370) - North Dakota, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Aroma of citrus hops. Apricots, and grapefruits. Flavors of grapefruits, orange zest, apricots, and slight burnt biscuits. Bitter, muddled finish. Not as outstanding as I remembered. Although it could just be this bottle. Still, a beer by a fantastic brewery.

Trappist1 (628) - Diest, BELGIUM - DEC 24, 2014
bottle @The room (NYC). misty, golden with a White head. nose: fruity but very hoppy nose, very nice. taste: fruity, some malts hidden, but definitely a lot of hops. still well balanced. MF: dry bitter, but some nice fruit sweetiness in the back. This is all you want from an american IPA!

Aroma is all hops, resinous and dank with a slight sweetness. Very little malt in the flavour, too. Massive, tongue coating hopping masks virtually all malt. The bitterness isn’t as prominent as expected initially, after a few sips it takes over your taste buds.

Sware217 (3) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2014 does not count
This is one of my favorite beers, and quite easily my favorite IPA. It has a huge hop smell with notes of sweet, fresh tropical fruits. The taste is tropical fruit up front, followed by the bracingly bitter hops that linger and coat your tongue. The amount of balance to this beer is fantastic. I would highly recommend it.
