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!

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.

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

Simply put, this is a great beer. It really needs to be served at cellar temperature to get the most of this one. A nice orange color with a strong citrus and pine scent. The flavor is all hops from start to finish. Yummy.

From a 22oz. The initial scent is amazing - very piney with a little citrus - and it just gets better from there. So very clear and crisp flavors. So very hoppy without an overpowering finish. Exactly how I like my IPAís

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.
