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!

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

Close tot being the perfect IPA. Aroma is very strong and hoppy, almost skunky, like really dank bud. Appearance is golden and clear in color, with a long lasting, fluffy, white head. Taste is wonderfully, very fruity, citrus, and spiciness. Palate is dry and crisp, very drinkable beer. Overall this is a world class beer, a must try for any lover of the IPA.

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 IPA’s

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.

gogaterz (20) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2009
22 oz. bottle. Beautiful gold color with a lasting creamy white head. Aroma is very hoppy and "earthy" with an almost evergreen hint. Flavor is a very nice strong hop flavor with a slight bitterness that finishes very clean with a mild "hop bite" onthe back of the tongue. A great beer.

Nearly red in dark golden color, lovely thick lasting head. You know this is a big IPA even 5 inches from your nose- intense hop scent makes the mouth water instantly. Tastes like bathing your tongue in hops soup & if you’re into hops, it’s orgasmic. Dry crisp, resiny, slight sweetness from the high ABV makes this strong full-bodied beer surprisingly balanced. Rich, substantial, demands a sipping approach (& your full respect)

keokani (20) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 5, 2010
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.
