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

Bottle from beer junction. Pretty malty and at less than 50 days it seems as if it it turning to more of a barleywine. It’s a great concise IPA. But more malt than hops.

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 18, 2016
Clear amber color with foam layer. Hop liquor nose. Creamy thickish mouth feeling with a lot of intense earth hops and a heavy character. Dry and bitter hoppy aftertaste.

draught@Erzbierschof - translucide amber beer with a little beige foam left; aroma of quinces, pines and lemongrass; subtle carbonation, pretty sticky, assertive and lively palate; solidly bitter but pretty sweet too; caramel, red fruits and tons of hops in the finish; warming alcohol presence

anstei (1169) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - AUG 17, 2016
Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. The forest floor again. This time even more extreme and really well balanced. Palate lasts and tastes finally. Nice.

mkel07 (5146) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2016
On tap at Brewhouse Brisbane 030816. This is such a big beer in every way and it is so intense that it takes a while to get through it. The best way to describe this beer is chewy, it is almost like a meal in a glass. Hops dominate everything about this beer and it is not a beer that you can drink quickly or drink a lot of.

Hops are awesome, taste on a stout side (which is not my style) ����� via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fat på Bryggarhunden i Götet. Doftar mycket fylligt av torkade frukter. Tydligt av Hallonbåtar också . Smaken då? Oj oj fyllig. Smakar olika godisar som den där hallonbåten men också smultrongodis? Ja tänk smultron i godisform. Låååång eftersmak å efterbeska. Och INTE för söt trots godissnajerna!! Perfekt kolsyrad. Ja faaan Peter Q denna är klart bättre än Founders Tripple .

Drank with Marijn, Bram and Lennart in the Stone brewery bar (awesome place!) in Berlin. Very nice beer. Sweet, and a bit bitter. High viscosity and very rich beer.

gyllenbock (7697) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2016
On tap at Stone Berlin. Dark golden with a white head. Fresh and hoppy with grapefruit, pineapple, malt, caramel. The body was full and the finish bitter. Tasty.

Bottle. Pours clear copper with a medium white head. Aroma of fine hops but there is a little skunk in the finish. Some sort of problem with the malt bill or fermentation. I’ve detected it in dozens of beers that I’ve come to know as "headache" beers, or beers that will give me a hangover well before I get drunk. The alcohol is well hidden. Finish is bitter and sour. But overall, a foul ball from an otherwise great brewer.
