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!

This beer is very enjoyable very hoppy can be a bit to much for other very Strong has a good hang seriously the taste stays in your mouth quite a bit but can be addicting to drink after the first sip its not a beer I would recommend for someone trying an IPA for the first time but over all to its a great beer to have especially with some food ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Muito aromática. Pinho, cítrico. Amargor forte e persistente. Bem encorpada no malte. Final seco. Pouco se percebe o álcool, mesmo sendo 7,7% ABV. Predomina na boca o gosto do óleo de lúpulo, resinoso, de madeira e fruta citrica azeda. Lembra sumo da casca de limão. Cerveja única

Bottle pour into pint glass. Great citrus aroma you know the hops are coming. Very orange in color with a small off white head. This beer is not for the uninitiated! Delicious hops flavor tons of piney, resin, hit you in the face and it is actually balanced for what it is. Medium body. It will for certain wreck your palate can’t imagine pairing this with any food, but you will continue to go back for another sip. Very very bitter aftertaste but you want to go back for more. Recommend for Hop Heads. Definitely lives up to it’s name.

22 oz. Orange, pale color with a light head. I got a bit of a floral aroma under the hops. When they say this ruins your palete, they were right. Too much for my inexperience, I can't say I liked the finish. Other than that, a good beer. Hoppy and strong. The destruction of the palete is really all I didn't like.

Bottle poured an amber hue with a nice thick 2 inch lace. Nose is intense floral citrus with a hint of alcohol. I really enjoyed the flavor profile of this one it still had a somewhat dry hop finish even at 7.7% a.b.v. The only thing missing was a nice malt balance. The palate of this one is drinkable if you like Double I.P.A.’s Overall I think I would have another.

Very generously hopped brew. 22oz bomber from Mad Mex. It literally does what the bottle says it will do, ruin your palate from any other flavors. Not too sweet. Great blend of grapefruit and pine flavors. Excellent beer.

Extremely disappointing... no flavor, some bitterness, no body, akin to a light beer... in a word awful. I enjoyed the pale ale from Stone.

Hazy orange/golden color, not totally clear, big creamy white head. Not getting a huge smell out of it, but what i can pick up is citrusy hops, some grass notes, a bit floral. Overall fresh. Awesome taste. The malt flavors really shine through the big hop curtain, which are still fresh tasting, citrusy and floral. High bitterness. Very good
