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!

Pure bliss to the mouth. Every bit of this beer is a beautiful experience. From the initial smell, to the hoppy taste and spritely body, this beer delivers to the senses on every level. Unlike many ’hoppy’ beers, this is a mellow flavor with a smooth delivery and equally smooth after taste. It’s definitely my new favorite.

Pine and fruity (oranges?) and turkish delight aromas. Hazy light amber appearance. Wonderfully bitter, but well balanced for my taste. Fantastic. One of my all time favourites.

Pours gorgeous golden color with large white head. Aroma grapefruity hops, fresh cut grass, and humidity. Taste follows aroma with mild sweetness. This beer is excellent in all ways. New favorite.

Stellar, not Stella. Everything in his brew s fresh, from the hop aroma, the malt flavor, the oil resigns on he back of the toungue. This brew just kills it. Sticking with this tonight...can’t go back to anything after this one for now. Will be reviewing Friday with some new bombers. Defiantly snap this one up if you see it.

Dark orange, grassy, malty with a medium-thick palate. Perfection. Close on the heels of the slightly more sublime Green Flash Imperial IPA.

This is another in my opinion, 5 worthy beer. There really isn’t much that needs to be said about this one. Right after opening the bottle theres the blast of pine and tropical fruits that just fills the air. Wonderful color and taste is just on point. Massive hop bitterness that lingers and it is such such a flavorful beer. Not really anything else to say, Ruination is an epic and perfect beer.

There is nothing to say about this that hasn’t already been said. Let the 5 rating speak for itslef. Amazing experience in a bottle. If you like hops, bitter, or anything IPA, drink it!
