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!

radio_nowhere (905) - Maryland, USA - JAN 13, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2013 12oz bottle into snifter glass. Hazy orange-amber color with thin off-white head. Aroma of grapefruity/floral hops and candy malt sweetness. Taste is intense, upfront pine citrus hop bitterness followed by orangy/fruity tasting malt. Medium body, lasting bitterness. Very good stuff.

Lightly hazed with an apricot-gold color. Great, thick lacing. Super smooth and creamy with a medium body and a snappy finish. Biscuity malts, grapefruit, spearmint, lots of pine quality and some floral notes as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrunkSanta410 (311) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2014
12oz bottle to glass. Pours copper, hazy, lacy thin head. Aroma: citrus, pine, honey, thin sweetness. Taste: citrus, grapefruit, pine, a bit of resin. Solid malt backbone levels this out and adds a bit of honey sweetness. Solidly bitter. Floral. Mmm. Palate is medium body, high carbonation. Very good beer!

Ipaluvr082 (63) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
Bomber poured opaque orange amber with little head that dissipated quickly. Grapefruit citrus hoppiness aroma. This beer is packed with a massive citrus hop blast which grows and settles over time on the palate, not much maltiness noticeable. Itís as you would expect a 100 IBU beer to drink.

liquidhedonism (169) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - DEC 4, 2014
22 oz bottle. Aroma: malty and piney, with hints of barnyard and resin. Taste/Palate: sweet; finishes with a long bitterness. Textbook perfect DIPA.

julesjis (141) - Oregon, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Poured from a 22. This is just a great easy drinking IPA. Has a slightly sweet maltiness to it and a great hop profile. The slightly bitter finish is great too. I could drink this all night!

Lagerboy (1322) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2014
Bomber. Unclear orange, small off-white foam mostly fades. Pungent aroma of juicy tropical grapefruity hops. Massive amounts of bitter tropical citrus grapefruity hops all but smother the toasted c-malt beneath, yet after the initial shock itís surprisingly quaffable. Average carbonation, medium bodied, aggressively hopped. Excellent. DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

stldicedealer (10) - Missouri, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Very fruit / citrus smelling. Bought this in a Stone mixed 12 pack. Do pay attention to what it says on the bottle as it can and probably will ruin your taste buds for the other fine beers in the mixed 12. This is a great tasting beer and easily drinkable for the higher abv. A real winner

chribban (204) - SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2014
Golden color, a little bit hazy. White, creamy, fluffy head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass.

Nose: Tropical fruit, a lot of hops, grass, caramel malt, orange, pine, resin and citrus.
Taste: Resin, grapefruit, honey, pinaple and syrup.
Body: Medium body and medium carbonation. Full, thick taste and warmth from the alcohol.

What a beatiful beer!
