Stone Ruination IPA. Named because it ruins your pallet. Not a beer for beginners. This is an extremely hoppy representation of an IPA. Great pine notes and a very hoppy nose, mouth and finish. Excellent beer. One of the top three IPA's of all time.
Stone IPA: By definition, an India Pale Ale is hoppier and higher in alcohol than its little brother, pale ale-and we deliver in spades. Now one of the most well respected and best-selling IPAs in the country, this golden beauty explodes with citrusy flavor and hop aromas, all perfectly balanced by a subtle malt character. #craftbeer #stonebrewing
The amazing aroma of the Stone Cali-Belgique is only slightly better then the taste. Slightly cloudy with adequate head, the color would be called a true gold. As it it drawn in with the aroma it almost seems thick. Hoppy as an IPA should be but with a bubble gum finish that lasts. For hop fans this is a must. Like the other Stone beers, not for the yellow fizzy crowd.
