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!

Pours a hazy orange with a thin white head. Lots of caramel malts in the nose with distinct sweet tropical fruit aromas. A pungent resinous hop bitterness in the mouth accompanied by heavy malt sweetness and grapefruit and citrus notes. A heavy, intense IIPA with a huge load of hops!

Bottle. Hazy pale amber pour with offwhite head. Aroma has grass and tropical fruits. Quite sweet and somewhat complex nose. Taste has instant bitterness that does not fade away. Balanced with warmth and sweetness.

Clear light amber pour with white head. Aromas of sweet grapefruit and other citrus fruits, marmalade and light toffee notes. Big citrus bitterness throughout with a nice sweet ish malt backing. Lingering bitter finish, some alcohol sweetness and heat but we’ll integrated. Also some herbal hop qualities.

Tap sampler at Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. I’m subtracting a few points for being overdone. There’s a point where hop excess goes over the top and this one suffers accordingly. It takes a while for your mouth to recover from this uber hopped monster and it might ruin your palate for anything that follows.

Poured from a bomber with a enjoy by date of 12/4/14. Aroma - Some tropical notes - pretty faint but there. Appearance - slightly clear golden pour with nice bubbles coming up. Taste - Fantastic. Tropical fruit heaven. Right up in my wheelhouse. Palate - Great lingering taste. Light body with a thin oily texture. Plenty of carbonation. Overall - Another gem from Stone. Not sure why I waited so long to try this. Top notch.

Pours a hazy gold color with nice lacing and fair head retention. Smells of honeysuckle and is slightly floral. Tastes about the same. A solid ipa and kind of tastes like a DIPA.

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.
