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!

Très jolie bière orangée présentant un fin col de mousse blanche en surface. Beaucoup de fines bulles émanent du fond du verre alors que d’autres demeurent agrippées aux parois. Comme cette bière semble rafraîchissante et désaltérante! Le nez est caractérisé par un bouquet de fleurs digne d’un souper de Saint-Valentin! Aux fleurs s’ajoutent un très agréable zeste de citron et un malt bien charpenté qui prennent de plus en plus de place au fur et à mesure que le liquide se tempère. Nez évolutif très intéressant! Le palais est principalement résineux des fleurs fraîches et de la mousse des sous-bois. Les saveurs sont quand à elles bien complexes: houblons fruités, malts grillés, sucre résiduel bien balancé, le tout dans une longue finale amère. Très jolie IPA que je recommande avec une salade jardinière, été comme hiver!

On tap at watering hole. Golden Amber with a modest head. Big pine needle and resin aromas with grapefruit as well. Tastes sweet and bitter. Big caramel malts balance out the bitterness of the hops. Creamy and sticky mouthfeel. Nice carbonation. Long bitter finish that lingers and tingles.

Hazy orange body with ample white foam. The head leaves sticky patches as it slowly subsides. Big grapefruit aroma up front with some fresh pine and hay scents creeping through. Sharp citrusy hop flavor balanced by malt/rye backbone. Nice crisp finish, not overpowering considering the imperial status.

Awesome. Huge hop aroma mango pine and some plum. Big beer malty for IPA, a little sweet on palate, other than that pure hop goodness!

Clear golden pour with thick, clinging head. Heavy pine, with some nice malt comes through to the nose. The hop bitterness is perfect in flavor, and again well-balanced by a bready taste. The lingering aftertaste is a bit much, and really my only complaint. Very well done overall.
