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!

Serve at proper temperature. Nice copper color with rich foaminess and excellent lacing. Aroma is grapefruit with slight floral. Grapefruit explosion with a bitter middle yet creamy finish. If you don’t like bitter, you may not like this. Very nice on the palate. Desrving of its high rating. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed this beer, it has a very bitter hoppy aroma and flavor with accents of citrus . A very solid IPA overall.

12.oz bottle...After description on label, was expecting taste buds to be assaulted... didn’t happen. Pours golden amber with mild head and good lacing. Aromas of citrus and pine hidden behind the hops. Finishes with a lingering bitterness that keeps you waiting for the next sip. Cheers

Bottle, really aggressive hop aroma from the glass, citrus, pine, orange peel. Surprisingly balances out with the body to give a great dipa.

Hops to the max. While this is an excellent strong IPA to drink on occasion, I much prefer the Stone India Pale Ale for daily overconsumption..........

Bottle. Pours amber, smells citrus and piney. Intense hoppiness does ruin the palate just as promised once consumed. The sort of beer that must be consumed with no other beers. Not my favorite but still a solid brew.

whatalesya (21) - , North Carolina, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Pours a dark golden orange, fairly clear, with a solid 2 finger head. Strong flowery hop in the nose and a bit piney. Taste has a pronounced hop edge to it, with some citrus notes, but not overly bitter as the malt tempers the hop twang enough to smooth things out a bit. Medium body with good carbonation. Lingering bittersweet finish. Hopheads may think they’ve found Nirvana.

Effervescently hoppy. Bitter but nice floral aroma. Beautiful color and lacing.
