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 ďA Liquid Poem to the Glory of the Hop,Ē 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

Draft 10 oz pour at special brews. For some reason, I passed on this bottle time and time again waiting to find it on tap. Lucky day. Pours a clear copper color with a thin fizz head. Earthy hop forward aroma. Smooth and rich favor that hides the double digit abv quite well. Huge hop finish. Description calls it right. Ruination with a lot more hops. Tasty beer.

On tap at Gnarly Barley, Orlando. Sweet, non pumpernickel barley wine aroma with smooth strawberry and gentle pine notes. Clear ruby-bronze under a lasting white flannel blanket. Sweet pine and bitter grapefruit flesh flavour thatís fruit salad-esque with medium high bitterness and faint ethanol that adds to the fruitiness. Medium full body, moderate carbonation, smooth and slightly warming.

Big foamy tan head, with an intense pine aroma, copper colored, beautiful. First taste is intensely hoppy, no alcohol yet, amazing how well balanced it is for such a high alcohol beer.

Very fruity sweet, citrus notes. Stays on the tongue. Had a great maltiness that sticks around. Overall flavor is pretty great, enough to keep you drinking, eventhough the ABV is 10.5. For what is technically a barleywine, it drinks smooth and isnít overly sweet.

It pours clear amber with orange tinges. It has a full head, good lacing. It has aromas of dried fruits, citrus fruits, and a bit of bready malts. It has a strong grapefruit taste with other citrus flavors. There are also floral elements with hints of lemon. It has a bitter kick on the palate.

Bottle, shared with Dave. Medium amber with golden highlights and a thick light gold head. Chewy toffee malts and perfumey pine, orange peel, long bitter finish. Fantastic!

Bottle to tulip (thanks Ferris) I just did 110 or so pushup and my arms are aching, but that wonít stop me from quaffing this beer in celebration (and to numb the pain). Grapefruit, spruce, pine sap, caramel, black pepper, and orange rind. Clear, but slightly hazy amber with a 1/2 cm creamy off white head. Taste is papaya, peach, pineapple, grapefruit, caramel and a copious amount of bitterness. Yowza...this is bitter, but so good.

Tasty!!!! Nice and malty with a big bitter finish. The high alcohol is not noticeable. Oh and by the way Iím drinking this Bomber from the bottle while mowing the lawn at 10:00 pm in the almost dark..... Mmmmmmmmmmmm what is that flavor? The hops are destroying me but I canít name the flavor profile...... not peach, no lemon, pine but not really. Ya!!! Pine!!! The bitter is ripping my face off. Yaaaa the more I drink the funnier my head feels and the more the sweetness of the high alcohol shows up. Peppery...... wood...... Resin. ....... awsomeness................ bla bla bla bla......... drink all things rock
