For my 300th beer I sampled Stone Ruination IPA brewed and bottled by Stone Brewing Co. located in Escondido, California. I bought this beer today at Whole Foods Market on Magazine Street in New Orleans, Louisiana. Stone Ruination IPA poured a honey-golden hue with a white head from a 1 pint 6 fluid ounce bottle into a snifter glass. Hops and pine fill the aroma of this 8.2% alcohol by volume beer. The taste screams hop forward on this Double IPA with with notes of grapefruit and over 100 IBUs (International Bitterness Units), ending in a dry, bitter finish.
