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

Smells of big hops, citrus, floral notes and pine tree. Amber copper in color with off white head. Smells delicious! Flavors of hops and citrus with a slight carmel flavor; full body flavor with a bitter finish. Very good imperial IPA!

eaglefan538 (2942) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Pour was amber to orange, thin to moderate off-white colored head, thins to a white head, good persistance. Aroma of tropical and citrus fruits, faint pine. Aroma of the same, herbs and faint grass. A great concoction, certainly pushes the limits of abv too. Tasty, fresh, good bite, moderate body, highly drinkable for a dIPA. Nice, job, Stone!

BK7 (773) - Turner, Oregon, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Growler from B2 Taphouse. Outstanding DIPA. Grapefruit, Pine and Caramel. Solid hops. Resiny. Bitter finish balanced with just a bit too much sweet. Tasty.

Hoppy as FUCK. Very good, clean, and strong. Almost numbs the pallet. Plenty of alcohol, but goes down easy

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 Bottle from Frida aka Sunken, thanks a lot! Pours orange with a white, fluffy head. Aroma has mostly bready/cookie dough malt and pine hops. Taste has bready malt, a lot of grape, pine/resinous and just bitter hops, some alcohol as well. Very well balanced. Body is full, carbonation is medium, mouth feel oily yet smooth. After taste is really long and heavy bitter.

Bottle. Pours a amber with nice head. Smell is fantastic. Pine and a bit floral. Caramel. Alcohol is there tinny bit. Im not a ipa guy but this is some very good stuff. Nice balance at such a high % and as much stuff going in. Bravo.

cchotz (9) - California, USA - JUL 23, 2013 does not count
Pours a clear copper color. Smells of citrus and pine. It is crazy explosive in your mouth with tons of bitter hop character. Very high in alcohol.

Butters (3963) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Clear copper pour with near white ring of head. Big bouquet of massive hoppy citrus. Resinous hoppy citrus oily sweetness. Its a super-hopped, punch-you-in-the-face brew, that is surprisingly sweet.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Clear amber color, moderate head, good retention. Resinous hoppy aroma with grapefruit, citrus, pine. Medium to full body, agressive bitterness, some alcohol, light sweetness. Very nicely balanced. Tasty stuff.

Well balanced malt and hops. The hops really show their complexity moments after the first sip. The malt coats your tongue preparing it for the knuckle sandwich it is about to experience. It isn't a stupid amount of hops for nothing. It's another great brew from Stone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
