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

22 oz bottle. Aroma: malty and piney, with hints of caramel, barnyard, and resin. Taste/Palate: very sweet; finishes crisp, with a long bitterness. Drank this immediately following the regular Ruination. Very interesting comparison.

Poured from a 22. Aroma is citrusy and "pine-sol"-ish. Flavor has a distinct sourness to it. Could be the grapefruit flavor. Did not enjoy this one as much Ruination.

A Thanksgiving treat for myself with my smoked turkey. Pours a hazy marmalade with a thin white head. Pine and Peppermint balanced with Caramel Malt. Its very hoppy for sure, but still quite balanced.

Whoa! I got a growler of this beast of an IPA! While pouring this golden brew I smelled its hop aroma of pineapple, peach, oranges and grapefruit. Sweet taste up front with a punch of hoppy bitterness toward the finish. Nicely balanced with a nice boozy burn. Great IIPA!

Wow, a fresh bottle, filled to the brim with hops, alcohol , and more hops, a truly wonderful beer. This is why stone insist on drink by dates, in two months, this might just be great, not possibly the best beer Ive ever drunk.
