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!

4-pack for 10.99. Pours a hazy golden amber with a white head that lasts all the way through the end. The smell hits you immediately; a hoppy citrus aroma. Taste is similar but slightly piney and malty with a huge bitterness at the end. Easily drinkable though. Body is slightly above medium which is typical for this style. This is a very good IPA but a little overpriced. I can get IPAs that are similar in quality in 6-packs for less. However, by it’s own merits, it’s definitely something that is worth a shot.

355ml bottle at the Head of Steam, Durham. Cloudy yellow pour with a fine white head. Powerfully hoppy aroma balanced by wholemeal bread. Strong IPA flavour, with lingering bitterness.

Fresh from the tap at Gesundbrewing in the Castle Pub. Golden-yellow in the glass with stable white head. Genial !!! The whole spectrum, what the hopd can give. Long bitterness in the mouth (100+ IBUs!!!). A so called beer for the fame of the hops. It’s real !!!

Lore (2035) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 3, 2016
clear golden colour, huge, creamy yellowish off-white head; aroma of overripe grapefruit, tangerine, maybe mango, too, pine resin, and some herbal notes; taste is the same with biscuits, syrupy notes and some peppery spiciness; perfect balance of hops and malts! I love it!

Keg at Bitter Phew. Look, it’s good, but not worth wetting your kecks over. Kind of like the NZ Sauvignon Blanc trend, the mega hoppy IPA thing will probably fade as the hipsters grow up. Hazy orange, off white head. Big citrus hoppy aroma with slight flowery edge prepares you for..... surprise surprise.... a big hoppy hit that hangs around for ages in a long bitter bitter finish. Kecks remain thankfully bone dry
