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.

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 cloudy orange. Nice aroma of fruity citrusy hops. Initial sweetness and hoppyness give way to a bitterness finish that lingers. Don't feel like 100 IBUs though - perhaps I've broken my tastebuds...a tasty beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Väldigt humlig doft med inslag av karamell, blommor, gräs. Jäkligt god. En rejäl besk som sitter i länge. @SBWF2015 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A classic, though a bit dated and I see why they replaced it. Very bitter and lean with not the same kind of aroma you get from current DIPAs.

RhetoricalAns (772) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 8, 2016
Deep gold pour, medium frothy light tan head, fair bit of sticky lacing. Mango and pine aroma, quite strong. Taste is a hop blast as expected, though there’s some caramel malt that comes through in the heavier body. Medium body and just enough carbonation to keep it smooth.
