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

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2014 Pours orange amber with big head! Aroma is awesome pine and floral hops, taste is massive hop bitterness with a decent bitter finish, a bit sticky and sweet though.

resevil787 (123) - Arizona, USA - AUG 4, 2013
22 oz bottle from total wine in Tucson. Pours a cloudy amber with off white head. Aroma is hops and malt. Very smooth tasting front, with hops that bite right away. Finish is bitter with a sweet, citrusy finish. 10.8 abv is non-existent, very easily drinkable. A damn good IPA by stone as always, but I can honestly say Ill take regular Ruination over this guy, as well as most of the Enjoy bys that Ive had.

Ykert (2) - Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2013 does not count
Excellent beer. Aroma is a hops, malt. Taste was surprising and very smooth. A lot of sweet malt flavor but not too much, it balances out the 100 IBUs well, citrus, pine with a sweet finish of toffee and caramel. This beer drinks easy for a 10.8% beer. I will have this beer again. Cheers!

alexanderj (3423) - Branson, Missouri, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle; poured an amber/orange color with a khaki colored head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, earth, BO, alcohol and caramel. Some sugary sweetness. Earthy and grapefruit in the finish, a little flat in flavor before that. Some sweetness and sugary elements; finish lingers subtly. A good beer, but nothing to really blow me away.

hopmelt (196) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Pours deep golden, slight off white head good lacing. Aroma is caramel, toffee, fresh dough malt, earthy, tropical hops, brown sugar. Taste sweety malt, caramel, toffee, citrus, tropical hops, bit of garlic. Mouthfeel is medium body, good carbonation, slight astringency and alcohol warming. Overall real good, well balanced, big beer.

Superbly executed DIPA. A beast at 10.8, but it drinks so smooth. Tons of malt to counter the hops buts its not malt overload like hoptimum. Excellent carbonation. Easy drinking which you would not expect at this ABV. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maverick34 (2611) - New York, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Bottled. Clear yellow orange pour with big white head. Super fresh hop smell. Lots of harsh grapefruit hops that kind of overran everything Slightly disappointing.

AmEricanbrew (6370) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 3, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2013 Clear amber color with ivory head. Sharp caramel, pine, grapefruit aromas. Medium body with average co2. Big pine, grapefruit flavors with sharp dry caramel, alcohol. Boozy bitter finish--messy

glennmastrange (2444) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle. Moderate to heavy roasted and caramel for the malt, grapefruit peel for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with date, dried cherry, wood, honey and alcohol in the background. Head is small to average size, frothy turning wispy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear amber. Palate is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium to full, oily with a soft carbonation and an moderate to heavy alcoholic finish. Juicy grapefruit-y hops puts this world class DIPA in my top ten.

CampesinoTino (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bomber. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a substantial cap of off-white foam. Tons of tropical fruit, citrus peel and pine resin in the aroma. Taste opens with a burst of resiny hops bitterness, grapefruit rind and pineapple along with some dried mango, mint and pine. Also a significant malt presence balancing out the hops and alcohol. The body is moderately thick and creamy with medium carbonation and an unsurprisingly bitter, leafy green finish. An obliteration of the taste buds in the best possible way.
