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!

Beautiful citrus hop aroma that’s full of grapefruit and florals. Bright golden color with a solid inch thick head that laces distinct rings down the glass. Taste is all bitter, nothing balanced about it. Fairly oily texture but full and pleasant. Difficult to drink more than one without a malty palate checker in between but truly a treat nonetheless.

Pours clear orange/gold with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is mostly hoppy with fresh grassy tones. The flavor is caramel with nearly overwhelming hops and huge bitterness... almost too much for me! Alcohol is perceptible but not overwhelming. A very good double IPA.

Pours golden orange with off white head. Aroma is pine and floral. Taste is big malt followed with piney floral hop bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells sweet with grapefruit notes and spruce needles. Pours golden, small white head moderate looking carbonation. Very hoppy flavour, on the edge of too bitter, grapefruit peel, spruce, slightly floral, burnt caramel. Super hoppy and bitter. Heavy body, bitter finish, slightly oily, slightly astringent, but very well balanced. Rock solid, hoppy with body to back it up. Well balanced considering how hoppy it is.

Great head retention, very pleasing to the eye. Dank melons and peaches. Hops taste reminds me of a cinnamon red hot. It's floral, spicy and intriguing to drink. Very aggressive hops. A bomb ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Medium translucent orange with a cream colored head. Very clear beer. The predominate scent that I can pick up is orange rinds. Very hoppy. Good lacing. Nice and bitter. Not overwhelming though. Very yummy but I like IPA’s quite a bit... Thanks Blake (1FastSIi).

Touche (57) - New York, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Great beer! Very very hoppy! Very smooth. Nice aftertaste. Slightly fruity but not as much as their regular ipa. Overall one of the great doubles i’ve had the honor of trying. At 7.7% a 22 to yourself will kick your ass!

PsionSaint (57) - Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Strong beer with loads of hops without being overpowering (as long as you like IPA’s). Warm copper color with fruity aroma and smooth head. Has some other underlying flavors once you get through the hops.

Pours a nice orange amber with very light white head that disperses almost instantly. Aroma and Flavor are nothing but a constant barrage of hops. every hop flavor you ever had come through at some point in the bottle.
