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) pours orange red with an off-white head. The aroma holds uber grapefruit, pine and white flowers. Pretty slim malt base. Very Stone-ish. The flavour light sweet, near heavily bitter and light acidic with notes of grapefruit, pine and white flowers. Fairly tight malt, crackers and white sugar. The mouthfeel is clean och round with near medium carbonation. Medium bodied.

_angst_ (2714) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle courtesy of GT2. About 1.5 months old. Pours hazy reddish golden with a frothy beige head that leaves lots of spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is tiny sweet and slightly fruity with grapefruit juice, pine needles, freshly cut grass, unripe mango, alcohol, orange zest and lemon zest. Taste is sweet, bitter and fruity with grapefruit juice, lots of pine needles, freshly cut grass, resinous wood, unripe mango and pineapple, moist soil, orange zest and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is round, slightly astringent, slightly oily bitter, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. finish is tiny sweet, bitter and tiny fruity with grapefruit juice, unripe mango, pine needles, freshly cut grass, orange zest and lemon zest. Seems to have more of a sugar base than a malt base which I guess is fine in this case. Enjoyable even considering the high ABV. Nice…

chucklemation (451) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Pours a golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity and floral hops. Flavor is sweet fruit, pine, and floral notes. Bitterness was a bit low. Not bad, but I was expecting something a little more memorable. Much less hoppy than the Ruination IPA.

Bomber from Ram Liquor’s. Appearance: 3 finger white-yellow,great lacing, colden amber color, clear. Aroma: lemon, pine, caramel, biscuity malt. Palate: medium body, sticky texture, dry bitter finish, average carbonation. Taste: light sweet malt, into piney sweet and bitter, bitterness taking over and finishing it out. Very good balance, good aromas and tastes, nothing too memorable however.

Lowe1983 (1346) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Pours an amber color with a nice, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is of citrus and floral hops with a nice balance of caramel malts. A hint of alcohol as well on the aroma. Flavor is also blended very well. Not too sweet and not overly hoppy. A decent warming on the finish as well.

APPEARANCE - Opaque amber with a 1-finger light brown head that dissipates after awhile. Good lacing SMELL/AROMA/SCENT - Piney, sweet, fruity. TASTE - A well-rounded beer, very tasty. Hoppy, with a nice aftertaste. ABV well-hidden. MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Not extremely thick. A bit of carbonation. OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - A very drinkable beer, smooth, with a great aftertaste. If only they sold 12-ounce bottles!

On tap at Uptown Market. Dark clear amber pour with a big creamy head. Huge hops aroma. Taste is also enormous, with pronounced hop bitterness but a big caramel maltiness too. Full mouthfeel but not too heavy. Absolutely delicious.

This is an amazing ipa with tons of hop flavor, we’ll balanced with the malts, and a perfect finish. An amazing beer.

There is massive citrus-resin and heavy hops in that aroma and the first swallow coats my mouth with a creamy, thick, and earthy malt. It’s almost an overload but then the flavors balance out and leave me with a long bitterness; smooth and with a nice comfortable taste. A thick mouth-feel, not syrupy, and a little boozy, but a reflection of it leaves an enjoyable experience in my mind, and on my tongue. Oh, this one is too good.
