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: JUN 4, 2014 Look: pours a light orange color. Extremely clear. Small head that doesn't hang around long. Head is bright white Smell: extreme dank smell. Very sweet smell. Slight alcohol smell. Grapefruit. Smell cat pee. Taste: skunk smell. Slight peppery feel. Definite bitterness to it. Slight line notes to it. Cat pee in a good way. Feel: good carbonation. Leaves a film in your mouth. Definitely a dry beer. Overall: bitterness and dryness make you want to go back for another drink. Good go to beer for the summer. First drank: home June 2, 2014

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 Draft at Escondido. Pours clear bright amber with a fizzy, bubbly off white head and lots of lacing. Tastes like grapefruit, resin, smooth booze, light caramel, sweet bready malt. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like caramel, grapefruit, smooth booze, citrus hops, and bready malt.

meh... Ive had better IPAs from Stone and better IPAs from other breweries. Its a hop bomb, a good and extremely drinkable hop bomb, but a hop bomb none the less.

This beer pours a cloudy golden color with a small one-finger white head. The aroma hops, pine, juicy citrus. The taste is very hoppy, hop oil, some citrus, and some breadiness. The aftertaste is full of hops and it lingers around. The mouthfeel is on the medium side and drinkability is quite high for this high of ibu.

Pours Amber with a thin white head. The aroma is hops on top of hops. Bitter.

Hazy in color. Not a lot of lacing. The aroma smells alcoholic, but the taste is of a semi-sweet citrusy IPA.

Tap @Brewdog Sheperds Bush. Cloudy amber, frothy offwhite head. Fruity, resin aroma. Caramel malty flavour with piney bitterness and orange. Slightly creamy mouthfeel, long dry finish. Good.

Strong hoppy aroma, good hoppy flavor to start, just ok on the finish. Lighter color than expected

Sad to see this one retired after years of enjoying it. Massive hops and slight alcohol warmth. Clear golden with full white head. Moderate bitterness is nicely restrained. There may be some Stone beers I enjoy a little more, but this is always tasty.
