It's the Stone Ruination IPA. It's a great beer. Very similar to Ballast Point IPA, in my opinion, which is also a great and generally less expensive brew. Both should be widely available in MA.

I think it's overrated, but you should try it if you can find it. I strongly prefer Stone's basic IPA.

I haven't yet tried the basic IPA -- and think I will. I agree, although Ruination is a fine beer, it does seem overrated by a fair margin. As mentioned, the "lesser" Ballast point Big Eye IPA is right on the same level as far as my palate is concerned.

I saw it in a MA store back in December - sure you can find it somewhere. What part of MA are you from?

I happen to be drinking the Stone IPA at the moment for the first time - well pleased.

This is a very good beer but for my money Bell's Two Hearted Ale is the best IPA on the market. This is a Michigan beer so I'm not sure if it makes it out east.

Well, if you are ever heading towards Boston, Tri-town Liquors on Cobbs Corner where Sharon, Canton, and Stoughton meet carry it
