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!

Pale yellow orange. Not much head to this one at all. Mild hop aroma and some sweet malt. Less than impressive. It comes with a monster bitterness that surges every time the malt backbone tries to surface. Felt their regular IPA was much more balanced.

Gurthnar (4480) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 29, 2016
Tap at Craft Bier Fest Wien. Lived up to its reputation, lots of everything here. Lots of bitterness, lots of hops flavour, well attenuated, juicy, citrusy, resiny, orange, great, blood of unicorns. Great beer.

Pour deep light amber with a decent off-white head. A very strong tripical fruit aroma with hints of mango a pinapple. Full-bodied with a medium bitter finish.

RajnCajn (11) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 12, 2016
Enjoyable DIPA, heavy on the citrus based hops and plenty aroma notes in the area as well. Nice color and finish, head hangs out for a minute. Can seem a little sweet at times especially as it warms and more of the flavors come out. Good drinkable beer though, try it if you haven’t.

Rask0lnikov (434) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 10, 2016
On tap at TCBW 2016. Pale yellow colour. Medium white head. Really refreshing aroma. Mango, tangerines in my nose. Lirs of other tropical fruits. Juicy. Peachy, citrussy beginning. Slightly bitter and citrussy in the middle. Hints of black tea. Flowery and citrussy finish. Definitely on the best IPAs I ever had. Refreshing drink.

thirstyrabbit (1657) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 8, 2016
Tap, TCBW ’16. Golden body, tall head. Really hoppy aroma with sweet citrus and floral notes. Sweet malty taste with loads of fresh American hops, citric and piney. Later some peach or yellow plums. Long oily finish. Great DIPA, would really like to have it again.

Melnis (370) - LATVIA - APR 8, 2016
First beer after week of work. Aroma quite refresing and hoppy. Taste is what I expected, but nothing more. Pallate could be more advance. But overall is high sue to classic expectation achievement

Marduk (5332) - Reval, ESTONIA - APR 7, 2016
Tap @TCBW 2016. Clear amber color. Medium size, white head, stays. Looks nice. Floral, citrus, malty, sweet in aroma. Alcohol, fruity, citrus, sweet in taste. Nice hoppy beer. Tad too sweet for me, but you have to cover alcohol somehow. Nice one.
