Stone Ruination IPA
Stone Ruination IPA is an example of an Imperial IPA style that, on the surface, appears as simply a liquid
suspension for lupulin products - and lots of them. However, at a second glance, there is a really nice
undercurrent of enjoyable malt flavors going on underneath the fireworks show of hops above.
This is definitely not the IPA to try if you're not a proclaimed 'hop head' and seasoned drinker of bitter beers. It's hoppy, really hoppy, and not those soft-bittering kind either.
Pretty simple really ... lots of bitterness accented by some rich Munich and 40L crystal toffee, roast, type flavors.
