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

Dahlstrom (315) - Nygatan 29, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2016 650 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Cloudy golden with a small white head. Strong hoppy aroma of citrus, grapefruit, mandarin, pine and floral; strong malty aroma of caramel, resin, syrup, hay and bread. Taste reflects the aroma, but even more malty. Medium body, with a sticky texture. Average carbonation. High bitterness. "Not bad, but I expected more. Its hoppy, but the maltiness somehow take over. I prefer their double IPA."

neongolden (1254) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2016
(650ml, bottled 06/08/16, from Systembolaget web order) Pours a slightly hazy bright orange colour with a large head of dense cream-coloured foam that fades slowly leaving lace. Aroma of sweet orange, ripe peach, grapefruit peel, resin, pine needles, caramel, slight bread, moderate rather than massive. Flavour is more intense, concentrated caramel and sweet orange, peach and dried apricot up front, rather sweet. Hopping really kicks in from the middle, big resin notes, citrus peels, pine, soapy florals, quite high bitterness clinging to the roof of the mouth. Long resinous aftertaste. Medium-full, almost sticky body with fairly soft carbonation. Hop bomb of the resinous and bitter crystal malt variety, definitely both west coast and old school, but solid stuff.
