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!

Poured from a bottle. Not bad but overrated. Cloudy orange, little head, slight lacing. The aroma was the best part: maybe candied apricots. More bitterness on the swallow.

Golden pour with a white head. Unsurprisingly packed with resin, pine, citrus, nedium malt body and punishing bitterness. A very good brew, but, in my opinion, could use a little more sweetness from the malt.

Golden with a thin, soapy head. Bitter as hell. Not much on the nose, to be honest, but still quite good.

Towey1989 (1181) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2015
Keg at Brewdog Liverpool. A slightly hazy amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of pine, resin with spicy and pungent orange, lemon and grapefruit. Taste is bitter and hop dominated with flavours of grapefruit, pine, alcohol and spiciness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a waxy texture. A long, dry bitter finish. A solid IPA but too bitter to be really enjoyable, which is a shame.

mgajdaczewa (1235) - Katowice, POLAND - AUG 4, 2015
W aromacie lekki tropik, lekkie żywice, nieco utlenienia i, co u nas ciągle zbyt rzadkie, wyraźna ciasteczkowa słodowość, zbalansowany. W smaku również niezły balans, odpowiednio soczyste, wyraźna goryczka, ale i fajne biszkopty/ciasteczka po stronie słodowej. Nacisk bardziej na żywice niż na tropiki, brak cytrusów. Niewielkie utlenienie (ice tea, lekki miód). Nic cudów, ale smaczne piwo.

McWorta (1196) - LUXEMBOURG - SEP 2, 2015
opalescent deep golden with a fading pillowy off white head, good lacings. A bit resinous, spruce/pine light earthy and citrus zest with a faint hue of caramel. Softly carbonated with a stingy presence, rather slick yet light texture and a medium body. Very swift buiscuity malt sweetness builds up a resinous, spruce hop bitterness. This builds and builds going into a dry astringency. Bone splitting dry lasting finish. Interesting.

Bottle. Aroma is flowerish, some dough. Taste is molassess, pine juice, resin, some tea, some hibiscus. Preppy and dry finish. Nice!

trapped (1783) - New York, TURKEY - OCT 13, 2015
Draught @ Albion. Hazy bright orange with small foamy off-white head, light floral hops aroma, medium carbonation, bitter hoppy taste that starts sweetish, full body, long bitter finish. Great IPA.

burg326 (5091) - Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Poured a golden yellow with aromas 9f malt, hops, resin, and some malt. Flavors are the same light hops and mild bitterness solid dipa. Little pricy for a bomber but solid.

Light golden appearance. Lumber is evident in the nose, something of a 2x12x16 piece of quality grade SPF lumber. Touches of malt also in the aroma along with some citrus. The body is really where the malt comes in handy, really hides the 100+ IBU’s that this beer claims to contains. Don’t get me wrong, this beer is big and hoppy, but the hops are balanced well by the malt. Interesting beer.
