COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India pale ales harness the inherent flavor characteristics of hops to bring forward familiar flavors of pine, resin, spice and citrus. In some cases, those botanicals are so potent, they exactly mirror specific edibles. Such is the case with Centennial hops, which hail from the Great Northwest and come across on the palate like a mouthful of citrus fruit. The sensation is amplified with this, the first beer introduced via the Stochasticity Project, a double IPA brewed with Centennial, Chinook and Magnum hops as well as an immense dosing of fresh grapefruit peel. The result is over-the-top bittersweet grapefuit intensity that is at once refreshing and bracing in its citrusy bitterness.

On tap at world of beer. Pours a light cloudy amber. Surprisingly strong on the grapefruit, but a nice bite and decent balance. Bitter, and it works. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at, yup, world of beer. Clear amber pour. Minimal head. Decent lacing. Super fruity nose, lots of grapefruit, fruit and hops. Flavor is the same with a pithy bitterness, but balanced of sorts by the malt. Tying finish. After a couple sips the pithiness gets to be a bit much. Doubt I could drink more than a pint. But interesting concept. Would like to see it with a touch less bitterness ---Rated via intercellular device

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 Had it at World of Beer in Evanston IL. The hop grapefruity aroma is remarkable. Light head uneven lacing the taste is heavy hop and heavier grapefruit.

On tap @ World of Beer Renton. Pours bright copper orange with thin lacey white head. Aroma is spicy herbal hops and bitter citrus notes. Taste is big sweet caramel malt with hugely bitter grapefruit and earthy, grassy hop finish. Heavy lingering bitterness. Kinda odd, but quite tasty. The grapefruit really crowds out the hop flavor from standard Ruination, but a nice big citrus flavor instead.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2014 Rated as Stone Ruination Grapefruit Slam IPA (8/22/13)- On tap at World of Beer Charlotte. Pours a pale yellow orange with a fluffy white head. Huge grapefruit aroma with citrusy hops. Smooth refreshing grapefruit taste. Proper bitterness all around. Stone just made a great IPA even greater. I love this.

Draft at Land O Lakes WOB for Stonehenge event. Pours a clear, golden orange color with a small white head. Somewhat sparse sudsy lacing along the side of the glass. Aroma has a ton of grapefruit up front with hops, resin and a bit of funk. Flavor is also dominated by the grapefruit initially with the expected hop bite soon thereafter. Very tasty.

jjgmd (2265) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2013
At WOB, Coconut Creek, Florida on tap.... pours a very clear amber light orange color, which was not very appealing, with a small head. Nose is bitter sweet, hoppy and full of deep ripe grapefruit. Taste is also bitter sweet, hoppy with a strong burst of grapefruit. Very drinkable, and full of taste. Finish is bitter as well and ends on the same tasting notes. While this beer was descent, are craft brewers and craft breweries entering an ERA of commercialization, $$ over quality, hope not....if so bring on the nanobreweries. Quaff Score 7 / 10

zgaier (1965) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2013
On tap at World of Beer UCF. Pours a darker orange with an off white head and aroma of grapefruit and hops. Taste is all grapefruit on the palate, with hops and citrusy resin notes leading to a bitter, fruity finish. Nice IPA with tons of grapefruit flavor throughout.
