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.
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. 😉
SearchIndia.com strongly recommends Stone Ruination India Pale Ale for all ye schmucks!
