COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
RUINING PALATES SINCE 2002
In June 2012, we celebrated the 10th birthday of our notoriously mega-hopped double IPA, Stone Ruination IPA, with the release of a very special version that was even bigger and, incredibly, even hoppier than the original. If Stone Ruination IPA is “A Liquid Poem to the Glory of the Hop,” then Stone Ruination Tenth Anniversary IPA was an amped-up heavy metal version of that ode delivered with the force of a sledgehammer. Luckily for us, our fans love loud and aggressive brews, specifically when copious amounts of humulus lupulus are involved. The original release of this beer was so instantly beloved by those who dared try it

Poured a deep Orange color with a large white head. Aroma is really nice like fresh hops. Citrus and creamy orange flavors. Very hoppy with some slightly syrupy citrus flavors. Overall a bit syrupy but nice hop flavors.

Pours amber with little head. Aroma is tropical fruits, malt, and alcohol. Taste is sweet and then bitter but in a very good way. I often think the malt presence is too strong in many of the high abv DIPA/IPAs but this isn’t one of them. This one finishes somewhat dry but other beers of this style are much more so. A quality beer but not in the top tier. I did like it more than the Enjoy By beers that I have had.

Stone knows how to make IPA’s. Theres nothing that can really be said other than that. This is no exception. The aroma has everything going on. Tropical soft fruit, grapefruit, dankness, pine, oniony garlic just loaded with everything an excellent IPA does right. Taste is off the charts good. So bitter, so perfect theres no need to even break down the individual flavors. It has everything. I’ve seen this one and overlooked it a bunch and figured what the hell all their other IPA’s are great. Phenomenal beer. Highly recommended.

Nice copper color with a little white lacy head. Little aroma. Very light and slightly carbonated. Taste is amazingly smooth despite being very hoppy. Nice sweet balance as well.

On tap. Beautiful golden orange pour with medium sized off white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, caramel, grapefruit, pine and hops. Taste of caramel, mango, tangerine and hops. Full bodied, lower carbonation, nicely balanced, long hop finish.

From a bomber dated 6/20, served in a Duvel tulip. The beer is a somewhat clear amber orange with a thick off white, almost tan head that leaves nice lacing. Right off the bat I am overcome with piney hop aromas as I pour. There’s not much to the aroma of this beer. Big piney resin, tropical fruit undertones, and a bit of pepper. Ok, so maybe it’s deeper than I initially thought. Wow, this beer is extremely piney. It hits you immediately with those big pine resin flavors. As it sets in there is grapefruit and a bit of a bready tasting malt, but the malt is hard to decipher. This is obviously a super hop forward beer. The resiny./grapefruit taste really lingers on the back of your tongue and completely coats your mouth for quite a while. I like it, it reminds me of 3 Floyd’s Arctic Panzer Wolf. I cannot really taste any alcohol, but I can definitely feel it. If a super assertive, hop heavy beer is something you enjoy, buy this. It’s exactly as advertised on the bottle, "A stage dive into a mosh pit of hops."

Flaske: Duft af citrus og lidt alkohol. Smagen er domineret af grape og mango. Lækker på mange måder med et stort alco burn til at slutte af på. Rigtig god øl.

Bottle. Pour is copper with a white head. Aroma is pungent. Musty and somewhat floral. Taste is pretty unbalanced and bitter. Not bad but overdone.

Beer pours dark golden color with a massive, retained off white head. Massive aroma of grapefruit and passion fruit. Taste is full on bitter. This is a hop bomb of the highest order.
