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!

Pours a light orange, rests in the glass a medium-dark amber. Slight off-white head slowly disappears. Aroma: powerful citrus, powerful pine! Tangerine, grapefruit, spruce, white pine. Taste: Medium sweetness; bitterness is on the high side of medium; a pronounced tartness to this. Lemon peel comes to mind... a hint of sour fruitiness, countered by bitterness. Palate: Lively carbonation, medium body. Smooth texture. Finish takes a while. Bitterness lingers, tartness becomes perhaps a little more apparent then than in the mouth. Powerful! Next beer I had this night seemed watery compared to this. Leaves an impression! Will buy again.

citrus and hops on the nose and a hint of caramel apple on the mid-palate. very hoppy, bitter finish. superb IIPA.

Bitter, hoppy, extremely bold taste. Good color and mouthfeel. If you like your IPA aggressive then this is your beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Unreal aroma....smell smell and good smellsssss! a ton better than it tastes. Kinda lean...but may be cuz i just had a thick Torpedo. Not much on palate but good for another macro brewery. However this would have definalty made it to India.

Poured into Dogfish IPA glass. Pours an almost opaque orangey gold with a sudsy head. Deep hop aromas with hints of grapefruit. The taste offers an expert course in delightful bitterness. Medium body with high carbonation. Perhaps not as complex as other brews but overall a spectacular Double IPA and easy to see why it is a staple for many. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
