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!

Sperine (283) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2013
On tap at Capone's in Norristown, PA. Double dry hopped version, although there doesn't seem to be a distinction on RateBeer. Surprisingly unimpressed by this one. I've had Ruination in the past and liked it, but this was very run-of-the-mill this time around.

Tap. Dark gold. Pine aroma. Slammed with hop taste right away. Crisp hop flavor throughout, pretty bitter. Nothing subtle about this one.

downender (6954) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle from Total Wines, Sterling VA. Hazy gold with a slight, off-white head. Massive hopping, grapefruit and pine and not much by way of balancing malt, before a rapsing dry finish. A bit too extreme for me.

rollerton (175) - SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2014
An IPA with very hoppy flavour and nice character, but a little too malty for my taste, despite being one of the great imperial IPA:s of our time.

9/12/14. Draft at surf club. Full onslaught hops. Not quite my cup of tea. Like IPAs and like Stone's West coast style. However, this is a little over the top for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JanEric (1127) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2015
Tap at Brewdog Manchester (4-1-2015). Clear golden colour with aroma of citrus and grapefruit from the hops. Bitter taste, with grapefruit and citrus again. You donít taste the IBUís anymore after some sips.

Luvystypotables (1061) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Aroma of apricot, hops, pine and hops. Caramel color with a short lasting white well laced head. Dry chalky feel with a taste of fruit, and hops with a very bitter finish.

CroftyCuts (24) - - FEB 25, 2015
At a tasting from a bottle. Joey Jordanoff and I concur, solid aroma backed up by a nice balance of hops and malts. A little resin on the palate but not overwhelming. Solid drop.

thedm (5139) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 22, 2003
This brew poured a small head of fine to large sized white bubbles and amber orange transparent body. It has a strong hoppy aroma and a strong hoppy flavor to boot. It has an initial hop flavor and a strong hop finish. You can summarize the brew in 1 word! HOPPY. A true hopheads delight.
