Review: Stone Ruination IPA #beer

Overall: A / 4.5
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Had this bottled and then on tap at Amity Hall. I figure Black Friday before I run over to Capone’s is probably a good time to sneak in a review from notes.

It’s heady with an golden and orange haze. Great little bubbles of lacing hug the glass as it goes down. Above the murky goodness it smells like straight and strong citrus hops, with a bit of a malts coming though too.

Taste is what you want when you order a WC hop bomb. Bit of temperance on the hops with some caramel, and overall it’s well-crafted. It’s got a solid medium body and great carbonation to really fill the palate, and a low enough ABV to be regularly drinkable.

Although I wouldn’t be putting back 5 of these. At risk of losing all taste sensation in my mouth for weeks. Regardless – another great one, Stone.

Serving type: on-tap
