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!

I’m not sure about the whole stone thing. You know, I am not worthy or this will keeeel you, oh wimpoid. Let the beer speak for itself. And it does. It wont ruin your palate for anything more to come nor will cause you to sing songs about decapitating baby possums while sucking the blood of a battered bandicoot, all in a guttural satanic dirge. Simply it is a fine IPA in the American style that is of good quality, excellent bittereness and clean flavours.

Hopmaestro (660) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2015
aroma is hoppy and grassy but with a heavy malt smell underneath. The taste... groovy, heavy hops, pine, citrus leading into a sweet ending - you know the drill. The bitch slap from the bitterness when it takes over is fantastic, it takes a choke hold on you and stays there.

mgajdaczewa (958) - 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.

Aromat mix wszystkiego czego oczekujesz od lupulin czyli sosna zywica duzo tropikow wszystko podszyte lekka slodowoscia. W smaku likierowate cos jakby wytrawne poteznie nachmielone barley wine. Mega pijalne dobre piwo!
