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 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.

dambor (172) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2015
Pours light yellow with medium head. Aroma: a lot of grass, herbs and some citrus. Taste: very grassy and refreshing, nice hops strike in the palate. ABV very well hidden, especially because the beer seems super refreshing and drinkable. Good one.

Bottle to glass. Name says it all. Huge citrusy, piney hoppy aroma. The bitterness is a bit overpowering in the flavor. Not really balanced at all. I really dig the RuinTen though.

Bottle, 75cl. Murky golden with a frothy offwhite head. Subtle but deep floral hippy aroma with hints of grapefruit, caramel, pine resin. Thick but smooth and creamy. Heavily bitter, with low sweetness in comparison. A lot of character and complexity in this brew. A magnificent IPA.
