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!

Sweet and spicy aromas. A light copper brew with good carbonation. Flavor is intensely hoppy, but surprisingly well balances with a fair amount of sweet malts on the backside. Finish is long an bittering. Big spruce-floral notes. Not that fruity, althought the sweet malts may lead that way a little. Not as good as Double Jack, IMO.

Draught, 7.7%. Sweet hoppy aroma. Cloudy grey yellow colour. The flavour starts off with a distinct teaish note. Becomes a little sweet and then slightly alcohol. Finishes with a distinct but clean bitterness.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a thin white head with good lacing. Smells strongly of hops, grass and citrus. Tastes of grapefruit and a strong bitterness. Medium body. Finishes dry and bitter. Very bitter, but well balanced and tasty.

Usually 75+IBU beer ends up tasting like grapefruit juice, but this stuff is actually fairly mild, in a good way. There’s a grainy, bready aspect to it, maybe a little citrus. It’s not as extreme as I had heard, and I think that made it more drinkable. It’s a solid beer, but not especially memorable.

Dark amber yellow coloured beer with a frothy white head. Strong green hop aroma, grassy and resinous. Dry mouthfeel. Dry hop flavours, grassy and resinous. Then there is a slightly bitter citrus fruit peel taste that lasts until the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a copper brown on tap with thick white head and good lacing. Aroma is hops: piney, grassy, and citrusy. Taste follows suit, with a bitter, dry finish.

Bomber: into snifter. Cloudy orange with frothy off-white head. Aroma is strong floral, bitter orange. Taste is pine, light fruit, bitter spice. Overall, hugely hopped bitter and peppery. If you want bitter, this is the tastebud stomping SOB for you. At the start I detected some nice fruit tones:pear, pineapple....but the hop bombardment extinguished that quickly. Good beer, but one for the BIG IPA crowd to be sure.
