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!

Fairly clear burnt yellow color. Not too much carbonation. Aroma is lots of citrus earthyness. Wow, very bitter. I’m getting a note grassy earthy bitterness for a flavor. Pretty good. Would like more fruity flavors,

Bottle from Cotteridge wines. Amber beer with medium head. Aroma of hops, tropical fruits and pine. Taste is pine resin, hops, peach and a dry bitter finish. A little oily on the palate. Very nice.

Keg @ Euston Tap. A suitable name for the ruination it caused my wallet - £8.10 a pint! This is a great IPA though, resinous citrus and hoppy grapefruit and tropical flavours but smooth enough to make it pleasantly drinkable. Bitter finish. Great stuff.

I finally had one of these yesterday, I had been wanting to try it for absolutely ages but it’s not easy to get here. Well, the wait was certainly worth it! Poerfully hopped making it rather bitter but perfectly balanced with a pine resin sweetness. Nectar of the gods!

Sevenlee (1264) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2014
Pours a hazy orange colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, citrus, pine with hints of spices and plenty of hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a huge hoppy finish. Awesome!

gripweed57 (600) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Slightly hazy amber orange color. Medium-sized rocky beige head. Big pine needle aroma. Rich caramel maltiness is overtaken quickly by the huge hop crescendo that awaits. Notes of pine, grapefruit and apricot. Finishes bitter and tasty, with an amazing long clinging mouthfeel.

Poured from a mix pack of Stone beers into a pint glass golden orange with a white head. Aroma is floral resin with some sweetness. Flavor is bitter hops but so smooth. Sweet yet not too much. Truly a lovely balance of flavor. Top notch all day.

Bomber. Pours a cloudy orange with a medium frothy head. Aroma is typical west coast IPA with classical citrus and pine hops, a bit of earthiness. Taste is fairly bitter, but great for the style. Bitter, dry finish. Not sure why it took so long to pick one of these up!

UPDATED: APR 26, 2014 A wonderful beer that warns of mountains of hops and fills the valleys with malt to match. A brilliantly balanced brew.
