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!

Really enjoyed this double. Everything an IIPA should be; crisp flavor and finish, nice and hoppy, some tones of fruit and flora. Nice color, too, but thatís not why I buy it... Itís delicious.

Iím somewhat new to IPAís but this was definitely the most unique iíve tried. it had a golden orangish color in the glass, and had a very fruity/citrus aroma. went down very smooth. highly recommended!

This is such an excellent beer. Itís hoppy tongue slap is quite enjoyable. The flowery aroma is refreshing and finishes strong.

By far one of the best beers ever created, ruined my pallete good. Has a nice golden color to it a lot like the IPA but slightly darker. A smack in the face with the hops, which is always a good thing.

For a double IPA it is one of the best. Not so bitter that it ruins the taste of food. Nice to look at and has a clean aroma that prepares you for a clean crisp taste. I like that there isnít the strong aftertaste that alot of double IPA have.

A beautiful beer. All that is right with a DIPA. Hops and malt blended to perfection.
