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!

22 ouncer. Darker color with a thin white head. Was a lot smoother than I expected it to be after reading some reviews. A good balance between bitter and malt.

Aroma: resin, floral. Appearance: golden, orange, cloudy, frothy, white foam. Taste: light sweetness, very bitter. Palate: medium body, creamy, average carbonation, astringent, bitter, long finish. Overall: This is one of the most over-the-top beers made. It is a very bitter beer, which is also nearly 8% alcohol by volume. The malt character is significant, but overpowered by the hop bitterness. You really have to love bitterness a lot to enjoy this beer. The bitterness is a bit much for my preferences, but this is definitely one of the better IPAs out there.

Very fruit / citrus smelling. Bought this in a Stone mixed 12 pack. Do pay attention to what it says on the bottle as it can and probably will ruin your taste buds for the other fine beers in the mixed 12. This is a great tasting beer and easily drinkable for the higher abv. A real winner

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2005 Pours a nice amber color... smells of sulfur and hops... the flavor is malty hops and orange rinds... very tastey... lingering after taste a lil dry... this is going to be a favorite!

A good one from Stone. Obviously hoppy but not overly bitter by any means. Taste of floral and pine. Pours an orange color with little lacing. Stone never puts out anything mediocre and that certainly echos with this brew. One of the better IPAs out there for sure; if you can find it!

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

Bottle into Sniffer. Pours Golden with a nice white head. Smells of floral hops are most prominent with some yeast. All hops taste. Goes down super smooth, leaving a bitter after taste. Very nice beer, but not as good as a 90 min.

the only thing that throws me off of this beer is the alcohol. it is only 8% but it is very apparent and unbalaced other than that this IPA (double) is killer. great citrus and floral hops with a malty back bone that is not overly assertive.

Purchased this at $10 a six pack as a misorder by a store. I was intrigued from the pour as it was a bright transparent liquid gold. As usual I drank the first one at room tempature which added to the appeal of the pour. At entranced IPA has a smooth flat feel but a little swoosh releases the hoppy bitter bite. Flavor like taste is piney and stongly reminicent of grapefruit. Although hoppy IPA maintains it a smooth taste and feel for a 7.7% beverage. All in all it is bold, hoppy and bitter. Did I say bitter? A good IPA; especially at 7.7% but not as complex in flavor as I had hoped for. I never thought I would say it but I miss the malty sweet touch. Nevertheless a great beer.
