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!

Ungstrup (29335) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2004
A clear orange beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is very grass and hoppy on a sweet background. The flavor is sweet caramelic with loads of grass and hops, besides hints of alcohol. A lovely 2IPA. Thanks to Dave (Rodolita) for trading this one.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2005
(Bottle 65 cl) Nice, clear amber colour with a small, white head. Lovely spicy nose - ginger? Spicy flavors with lots of sweet caramel and hops - loads of them. Pronounced alcohol - almost grappa-like. Very unusual, but very delicate. Oh, did I forget to mention, that this is quite a bitter beer also?

Bottled, thanks hopsrus!!
Amber coloured, little head. Huge flowery grapefruit aroma. Completely dominated by hops, despite it's full body. The maltiness however is less soft and attractive than in Three Floyds Dreadnaught. To call the finish "bitter" would be a gross understatement...

Hazy amber beer. Thin white head. Light hoppy nose. Softish and slightly silky palate, semi dry. Palate is perfect for delivering the full on hops. There is grass and pine and good bitterness. Just light fruity grapefruit. Finishes with a carbonated sting and lingering bitterness. Refreshing and unapologetic in-your-face IPA.

Craft Islington. Keg. Fresh! Skunky hops well balanced with pine and citrus. Bitterish marmalade. Nice creamy malt base. Delicious!

Golden color. It has a nice hop aroma, very perfumy, almost with a touch of vanilla. Good mouthfeel, with a strong toffee flavor, dry, with an extreme hopping.

2006-05-08, bottle, 8-4-8-5-16=41
Light amber color; nice perlage. Resiny hops aroma; some malt; light hop fruitness (oranges); dry hop flowers; light orange flowers honey. Medium malty taste and structure, and of course an extreme bitterness. Very long final, extremely bitter, resiny. Very good.
