Stone Ruination IPA 4pk bottles $11.99(OH)

12 oz brown bottle poured into a stemless white wine glass. freshness date painted just below bottle neck.

Pours a nice golden color with a slight haze to it. A two and a half finger head last for a while. Gives way to nice thick lacing all over the bulb of the glass.

The aroma is strong. Grapefruits, oranges, powerful citrus notes. A nice piney after tone.

The taste follows the nose. A strong blast of hops, full of citrus and pines. A nice lemon after taste lingers with some bitterness. 100+ IBU's indeed.

Mouth feel is excellent. No complaints at all. great carbonation. A hoppy zest lingers with a dry bitterness.

Overall. My third brew from stone and they keep getting better. This brew is amazing. The high ABV is super hidden. An excellent DIPA. It may just be my new go to DIPA.

22 oz bottle split shared 2 Sam Adams Boston Lager perfect pour pints. Nose is citrus and malt sweetness. Appears clear with a good head that dissipattes after a few pulls. Tastes is upfront citrus hop and then the mouth goes a little bit more bitter. Mouthfell is soft and balanced but dries out. Overall not a bad beer. I need to try again to see if my palatte was off the first time or perhaps I had a slightly off tasting bottle. I can taste the potential for goodness.
