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!

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.

Patrickctenchi (4949) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 22, 2012
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.

Pungent aroma of ,well, hops. Bitter to say the least but fairly good but will probably keep the consumption of this IPA to a minimum

Not much aroma. Sticky taste. Although I usually prefer Imperials, I think I like Stone IPA better.

2013 bottle to a Dogfish Head IPA glass. Golden straw color with thick foamy white head. Aroma is a grassy, slightly floral, hops with some citrus and malt sweetness. Taste is strong bitter, piney hops up front with citrus in the middle. Gives way to a sweet caramel malt at the end with the bitterness sticking on the tongue. Thick and full mouthfeel with a very dry finish. Big and bold. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Tasted on 5/11/13 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle purchased at a grocery store in Arizona. Pours clear orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average, messy lace. The nose is full of hoppiness, ranging from resin, to citrus, to floral, with just a touch of yeast aroma and a bit of bread malt. The flavor is really just dominated by hops and bitterness, with the same touch of bread malt acting as a bit of a balancing agent. The body is medium with a bit of a sticky texture, average carbonation, and a long, ridiculously bitter hoppy finish.
