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!

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 20, 2013
A - A huge moundy off-white head on top of a hazy amber brass body. Thick 3D lacing. S - Wow! Intensely grassy hops bursting with citrus grapefruit and lemon oil. Lots of pine, fresh herbal earthiness. Hints of candy sweet malt lay in the background. The best smelling DIIPA I’ve ever smelled. T - Assertive hops rush the palate. Fresh pine needles, grapefruit rind, lemon pith, fresh cut grass, fresh cut mint leaves. Caramel malt bleeds through the bouquet of hops. Aftertaste is mouth coating grapefruit. M - Moderate carbonation, medium bodied that finishes crisp and dry. This is a citrus hopfest. Although it’s not as harsh or bitter than I thought it would be. It’s actually very tasty. The nose is glorious! The hop profile is very flavorful and the malt does it’s job. Too bad it’s so expensive. Serving type: bottle 10-18-2010

Aromat mix wszystkiego czego oczekujesz od lupulin czyli sosna zywica duzo tropikow wszystko podszyte lekka slodowoscia. W smaku likierowate cos jakby wytrawne poteznie nachmielone barley wine. Mega pijalne dobre piwo!

From my backlogg: Draught at Steampunk Bar, Gothenburg. Clear amber beer with an offwhite head. Hoppy fruity grassy aroma. Similar flavour with nice dry bitterness. Really lovely refreshing beer :-)

Bottle. No detailed notes - entering from older tastings. With over 3500 ratings, what could I add anyway? Good stuff.

wiwetu (83) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUL 16, 2015
Aromaty owoców cytrusowych, smak lekko słodowo-słodkawy z potężną, chmielową goryczką w finiszu - ale przyjemną, nie zalegającą. Nieprzyzwoicie pijalne jak na swoje parametry. Do miliona powodów, żeby przenieść się do Kalifornii dołącza kolejny. Yummy!

tricksta_p (1961) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2015
Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, grapefruit, pine, floral notes, hint of caramel malt, massive hops. Flavour is light sweet with a long bitter finish. Perfect balance and quite easily drinkable. This gets dangerously close to IPA perfection, it’s certainly my kind of IPA.

DrAlexandre (22) - Niteroi, BRAZIL, BRAZIL - JUL 10, 2015
Coloração âmbar turva. Espuma bege de média formação e longa duração. Aroma explosivo e duradouro de um floral intenso, cítrico de maracujá e pinho. Sabor inicialmente frutado de maracujá com notas florais e leve resinosidade herbal. Dulçor frutado e cítrico de grapefruit também percebido ao longo dos goles. Final de um amargor suave e cítrico e permanece por bastante tempo no retrogosto. Textura aveludada. Carbonatação moderada corpo elevado. Uma DIPA perfeita.
