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 fairly clear gold orange with red accents with a large white head that lingers. The lacing is all encompassing. Aroma is powerful hops with flowers and citrus. This is a HUGE beer. Hops upon hops. After what is a pillage of bitterness, the sky clears to reveal an incredible complexity of floral, citrus and maybe even candy flavors. Oh thereís malt alright Ė for those that find their way through the hops. Believe it or not, itís really well balanced. More flavors. Grapefruit. Pine. The alcohol lets you know itís there, but pleasantly so. This isnít a thick beer at all, but it really wants to be chewed. Great for sipping. Again, this is a powerful one, and will be the only beer youíll taste for the rest of the day, so make it your last. Even for someone whoís not a huge IPA fan, this is a great beer.

This is a true hop heads beer! Extremely delicious. Slightly floral and citrusy sweet. Not as bitter as you would think. Very drinkable.. 100 IBUís?!?!?! Awesome brew..

had the pleasure of enjoying this masterpiece while witnessing the ny giants own the patriots....while the pour, nose, and head are wonderful to behold, it is the flavor that makes this IPA stand out from the crowd. it begins smooth and full on the palate, quite malty and warm. as the drink progresses, the hops slowly blossom until you are left with the incredible bitter finish. buy this. drink it. enjoy.

CLoudy golden appearance sith a frothed white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is a flowery malt with sweet undertones. Flavor is fruit like with a sharp bitterness from the overwhelmingly hopped brew. Very good. Palate bitterness holds tight and finishes with a crisp hint of sweet clover. Unique. One of my favorite IPAs. Will buy again.

Great appearance. Very hoppy beer that is smooth and leaves a bitter flavor with each drink.

12oz bottle. Comes as advertised. It will ruin your palate and any beer you have after that. Very tasty and easy to drink though, just donít expect to have anything else that night. Pours a very golden yellow clear colour. Pretty solid over all.
