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!

On tap at Burger, Aptos. Have had this before and it is good but not quite at the Palate Wrecker level. Golden and. clear with an ample white head Grassy, woody nose, but not that strong. The taste is what grabs you. Bitter, hop forward. Nice lingering bitter aftertaste.

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 IPA’s. Citrus peel. Clean, simple flavor. Finishes very dry.

Amber/ orange pour with a white head. Aroma and taste are bitter hops, flowers, caramel, peach, pine and malt. A blueprint for what an IPA should be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Possibly the best smelling beer I've had. Piney, citrus, orange hint of sugar. Sweet early. Full of hoppy flavour up front. Not much sting at end. Could drink everyday. 8.2 %. 12oz. 2.3 std drinks ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Undebara typisk Amerikanske Humletoner. Smakar perfekt mjukt av barr lite frukt å rejäl beska. Jövligt bra för relativt låga alkoholhalten Dipa...

Hazy orange pour frothy white head. Sweet aroma but bitter hoppy taste. Unusually tasty for being so bitter. Mild after taste. Not a big IPA guy but this ain’t bad.

This is so good, there is everything that ipa needs. Perfect aroma of hoppes and fruits, and the so nicely balanced taste. Best so far!
