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!

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2014 Bomber. Citrus and pine hops smell delicious. Very poignant. Nice copper color with just off white head. Very nice lacing. Taste is obviously mucho hoppo. And my tongue enjoys it. The hops didn’t smack me in the face like I anticipated, but they made a strong appearance nonetheless. Great IPA.

Fresh floral aroma golden color with taste of citrus and fruit. Smooth taste with hoppy bitterness coming quickly.

Undebara typisk Amerikanske Humletoner. Smakar perfekt mjukt av barr lite frukt å rejäl beska. Jövligt bra för relativt låga alkoholhalten Dipa...

Hazy orange pour frothy white head. Sweet aroma but bitter hoppy taste. Unusually tasty for being so bitter. Mild after taste. Not a big IPA guy but this ain’t bad.

Amber/ orange pour with a white head. Aroma and taste are bitter hops, flowers, caramel, peach, pine and malt. A blueprint for what an IPA should be.

This is so good, there is everything that ipa needs. Perfect aroma of hoppes and fruits, and the so nicely balanced taste. Best so far!

Narkee (10) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 7, 2014
Pours a lovely golden amber with finger width head. Aroma is an amazing mix of pine, resin caramel and bubble gum. Palate is silky smooth. Big bitter hit upfront which mellows in the background and is overtaken by caramel and toffee sweetness. Amazing IIPA.

An IPA with very hoppy flavour and nice character, but a little too malty for my taste, despite being one of the great imperial IPA:s of our time.
