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!

Golden colour with a sparkling white head with some lacing. Agressive hoppy cascade nose with some nutty hints. Hoppy, flowery almost perfume like flavour. Extreme bitter palate. Medium bodied. Aftertaste is present for at least an hour.

Pours clear gold. Greatly reduced head. However it doesn’t stop the aroma. BIG AROMA!! Fresh hops, abrasive citrus, acidic, dank, weed, flowers and big pine. Taste is the same with caramel and slightly roasty malts. BIG FLAVOR! This is a beast.

Rating #1294 - 21.10.2014. Stone launch @craftbeeryeg Pours a darker amber, with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is citrusy, grapefruit hops predominant. Taste is extremely hoppy, lots of cool citrus notes - mild tropical, mild pine, mild orange zest. Extraordinarily balanced - the sweet, cookie dough malt met with doses of bitterness, and they all linger into the finish. Beautiful.

TheFoamhead (223) - Vught, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2015
Wonderful aroma mix of pine, resin and tropic fruits based on a subtle malt body. The licory bodu makes you think of an barley wine topped by a mighty hop kick. Finally this beer stays surprisingly drinkable but is mostly overrated in my eyes.

Poured from a bottle. I could smell it an arms length away as it was being served. Very fresh citrus notes. Caramel with light brown color, breaking amber and golden on the edges of the glass. This taste incredible of danky grapefruit with nice citrus flavors. Love it when we get fresh Stone in Iowa, so good. Last time I had this beer was on tap was at Big Grove on a Skype with Mitch Steele. Pretty cool.

Classic IIPA. Bold hop flavours of citrus and ripe mango. Some find it bitter but for me the bitterness is good.

A classic, though a bit dated and I see why they replaced it. Very bitter and lean with not the same kind of aroma you get from current DIPAs.

LesArgen (276) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 23, 2015
A good old fashioned IPA with loads of bitter hops, hold those new fangled floral aromas, thanks. It’s all about the pine and the grapefruit which are just ALL OVER your tongue. It holds its alcohol well for a double IPA.

nazbion (163) - Tübingen, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2015
Pours clear light amber with big frothy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, pine, some melon. Taste is bitter, not excessive, with some residual sweetness. Somewhat dry, medium body, soft carbonation, alcohol well inserted. Really balanced imperial ipa.

trapped (1658) - New York, TURKEY - OCT 13, 2015
Draught @ Albion. Hazy bright orange with small foamy off-white head, light floral hops aroma, medium carbonation, bitter hoppy taste that starts sweetish, full body, long bitter finish. Great IPA.
