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: SEP 1, 2013 Premium golden body, noticeable carbonation with a greyish white dissipating to film head. Floppy grapefruit, over sweetened maltiness and big resinous swell. Initial taste is a suprmely bittered stickly, coating carbination. Firm malt skirting is kicked in by a fully expected hop grating of the palate. I remember this being much more impressive. The lack of complexion at the moment is laughable.

Bottle, Appelation Wine

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 its 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.

Pours a hazy amber with minimal white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and some sweetness mixed in of vanilla and caramel. Taste was rather off on this and Im not sure if I got an old bottle or not. Taste was extreme lemon up front, honestly tasted like lemon dawn dish soap. Id like to try a fresh one to compare, but Ill put my rating in now based on what I experienced. Still wasnt terrible, good amount of bitter and dryness.

Clear, slightly pale yellow-gold with a head of about one finger. Warm hop smell. Evergreen, some fruit, malty bread. Pretty bitter, even for someone who drinks a lot of IPAs. Citrus peel. Clean, simple flavor. Finishes very dry.

HKdIPA (640) - HONG KONG - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle from G&M brought from SD. Almost clear straw yellow pour. Aroma is intensely west coast hoppiness, a bit grassy and resiny. Taste follows - very bitter hops, resin, pine, crisp, mineral (?). Crisp boozy finish. Very west coast, San Diego-style IPA with super crisp resiny hops. Good but not great.

CacheManyHose (561) - HONG KONG - NOV 22, 2014
From San Diego. Straw-gold, sudsy white head with huge chunky bubbles. Smells of heavy resinous bitter crisp grassy hop, leafy, hint of spicy malt. Gets maltier as it warms up. Tastes very bitter, metallic/mineral. Body is very bitter, stony, mineral finish. A very West Coast IPA.
