Stone Ruination IPA Review – Wonderful Bitter India Pale Ale from the Arrogant Bastards

Bitter, Bitter, Bitter.

Stone Ruination India Pale Ale ($5.99 for a 1Pint 6fl Oz bottle)) is likely the bitterest beer we’ve drunk in our life.

No kidding, folks.

If ever a pleasant aroma was misleading in its taste, it’s Stone Ruination India Pale Ale.

This orange yellow beer packs a strong, pleasant fruity aroma of orange peel and, maybe, even peach.

But take a sip.

It’s bitterness defined.

Definitely, way more hopped than your average beer.

The company describes the beer as:

A liquid poem to the glory of the hop.

Aptly so.

On the International Bitterness Units scale, Stone Ruination IPA scores 100+. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. 🙂

But a likable bitterness, if you ask us.

This is not a beer you can forget in a hurry. It’s got strong character, son.

As we kept drinking, our liking increased for Stone Ruination India Pale Ale, which, by the way, is from the same folks that brought you Arrogant Bastard.

By the way, the term Ruination on the bottle is the brewery’s braggadocio for the supposedly ruinous effect on the palate after the first swallow of the beer for all other food and drink. Ha ha ha.

This beer has a high alcohol content. The bottle says the alcohol content by volume is 7.7%. Pretty high!

We had a nice buzz in our head at the end of our bottle. 😉 strongly recommends Stone Ruination India Pale Ale for all ye schmucks!

    read it as Stone Urination 🙁 Responds:

    Two bottles and you can get reasonably high! On Stone Ruination not on Morarji water! 😉

      I actually got a good buzz with 1 bottle of AB. I don’t think I will able to drive after 2 bottles. Responds:

      You’ll get a better buzz with Stone Ruination IPA because it has a higher alcohol content compared to Arrogant Bastard. 7.7% vs 7.2%.

    Off-topic: i know this isnt the right cat. to post this,but for everyone who believes in reincarnation and dislikes nehru,or at least the latter(im not taking sides on nehru personally),this is for you:

    p.s i wonder what would happen if this article was printed in “the hindu”????? Responds:

    Read the piece in your above link but in the absence of hard evidence to prove any of what is written, we’ll have to assign it junk status. By the way, we’d read stuff along similar lines elsewhere too on the Internut.
