Stone Ruination IPA
I ordered a bottle of Stone Ruination IPA from Ram's Head in West Chester. The beer pours a golden color with a foamy white head that laces on the glass. The aroma consists of lemon, citrus, caramel, and a light grapefruit hint. The taste has a caramel base with lemon and pine accents and some hidden grapefruit on a lightly dry finish. The alcohol content is 7.7% ABV. I thought that the Ruination IPA was extremely delicious. It may not be as in your face as the Arrogant Bastard, but it is standing three paces away yelling at you. A complex mix of citrus and pine makes your tongue work to pick up all of the flavors within this beer.
