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

Pours golden amber with an off white head. Aroma is big citrus hops, tropical, lemon, grape fruit, some pine. Flavor is thicker resiny hop. More pine and bitterness, some caramel and booze.

My Bottom Line:
Boisterous citrus fruit bloom, ripen and explode onto this Double IPA’s burnt honeyed cereals before alcohol warmth and potent resins take over the finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the clean shiny amber.
-This is a tad too sweet for my tastes in the style, but it is still mighty pleasant and memorable.
-The flavor profile is polished, although hot.
-The aroma is very alluring for hopheads.
-Hops and residual sugars are equally expressive in the flavor profile.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle at home into a double-walled glass tulip cup. It's like an explosion of fruit and flowers in your mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: very hoppy. Citrus, resin, grass. Very sweet linger. Appearance: deep copper with this head that fades quickly. Taste strong hops, both citrus and bitter, quickly giving way to a strong malt heft and sweetness. Palate: balanced, neither too thick or too thin. Overall, very good beer that unfortunately isn’t here to stay.

A misty orange color with a lush foamy white head. An robust sweet hoppy aroma, well balanced and a true delight.

kevinsenn (1384) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2013
Bottle from Champane’s. Pours clear amber with a beige head. Aroma of pine, tropical and citrus fruits, and some strawberry. Taste is pine, fruit, with some resin and alcohol slowly creeping up and turning into a big bitter finish. Big body, Great, but I do like Ruination a little better.

Garbageman (443) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - JUL 12, 2013
From bomber. Pours a amber color with nice white head. Aroma was huge citrus hops with lots of oil and resin. Taste followed and was forward but balanced with a nice thick malt bill. Better then the enjoy by.

Theydon_Bois (12178) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2013
Bottle split at the Craft Beer Co Clerko, thanks to Aaron, 08/07/13. Clear golden with a thin white head which subsides to spotting and edgework. Nose is floral hops, juicy tropicals, pine, caramel malts, light booze, sugars. Taste comprises caramel malt, bitter hops, orange pith, bitter grapefruit, light mango, little boozey kick. Medium bodied with bite, dry finish with aggressive hop bitterness. Nice stuff - the booze doesn’t get in the way and it’s easy drinking for a DIPA.
