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!

This is a very good beer but it’s definitely over hyped. Like many of Stone’s beers.

Naturligtvis lite svårt att få tag på färsk ipa i Sverige men trots att den är trött är den riktigt bra. Snudd på världsklass även om jag börjar tröttna på west coast

The hop aroma of this beer can be detected across a room. There is no discernable malt presence, except in the color. Yet I know it must be there, because I have tasted hop tea and it is not this. Somehow it works but I must be in the right mood to drink this. Excellent on a hot day.

Has a little bit of grapefruit flavor, but the beer is all bitterness. Like the bottle proclaims, the bitter flavor dominates your mouth a while after you drink it. I admire the beer, but I also have to admit it’s a bit much for me.

Bottle. Pours clear orange/ bronze with a white head. Smells nutty, oranges. A nicely balanced IPA, not overly hoppy, not too malty, great bitter finish. Very piney, clean and crisp. A really enjoyable beer.

On tap at Westow House. A welcome surprise to find this on tap. Pours a hazy gold colour with a white head. Light trop fruit aroma with some lemon. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Tangerine, funky fruit, big grapefruit bitterness. Yep, tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A bit too bitter for me, at least when there’s no balance. Still good but preferred the Avery IPA. From back log 3 weeks ago.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 On tap poured into an 8oz snifter. The initial aromas of citrus and light caramel come through. There’s also a some hints of honey, clove, pine, and wood. It pours a clear orange-yellow body with a light, tan head that recedes quickly and doesn’t really lace. Extremely hoppy bitterness with a light, mild caramel sweetness underneath (but the bitterness almost washes the sweet out). It’s a medium bodied beer with an average amount of carbonation. It hits the tongue with mostly citrus rind, pine, and some buttery/caramel notes. It definitely fills the mouth with a sharp, astringent and pine bitter quality throughout, but this does give way a bit to some light fruit notes. It finishes dry and clean with bitter citrus astringency and some. This finish sticks around in the aftertaste.

Bottle from City Beer, San Francisco. Straw color, some white head. Bitter. Grapefruit, citrus, some peach.
