COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
RUINING PALATES SINCE 2002 n 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

Pours a copper orange with a one finger off white head which fades to little lacing. Aroma is of citrus peels, pine resin, dank weed, floral hops, grassy hops, tropical fruits, and sweet malts. Taste is similar but has some caramel and sweet malts backbone. Has a medium-full body with a semi creamy, dry, pretty bitter, slighty boozy, medium-long finish. Overall, another great DIPA from stone.

300th review WOO! Pours a clear, deep golden with a sudsy white head. Aromas of HOPS. Took a sip and my tongue feels like it got slapped by someone holding a fistful of hops. Has a good bit of maltiness as well that I wasnít expecting but still bitter as hell. Definitely on the same plain as the Ruination and also Green Flashíís Palate Wrecker, but doesnít seem to "destroy" my taste buds as much as I thought it would. 300 down, and so many more to go. CHEERS!!!

Pour is a clear burnt gold color, bubbly white head. Huge nose, lots of pungent bitter citrusy hops, almost overwhelming , nice pine notes, very boozy, and a little bready malt in the back. Not looking forward to this. Thereís overwhelming citrusy hop bitterness up front on the taste, tons of booze, thick piney hops coat your mouth on the finish. I knew what I was getting into, but I think my "absurdly over-hopped mess of a beer" phase may be over. Itís exactly what itís supposed to be so I canít knock it for that, and I have to give it some points because I love Ruination from time to time. This is bordering on undrinkable for me though.

pours dark orange with a thin white head and heavy lacing. aroma is tropical fruit, strawberries, pine resin, and just a touch of crystal malt. flavor is similar to the aroma with some alcohol warming through the middle and huge long lingering hop bitterness at the end. another outstanding beer... though like mentioned earlier: this is extremely similar to the newest enjoy by 7/4, with just a but more hop punch.

On tap at Stone Company Store in Oceanside. Aroma of citrus, sweet malt, hop resin and rum cake. Deep gold color with fading white head. Flavor starts sweet with undertones of earth and grass. Bitterness immediately comes in and lasts with grapefruit citrus and orange peel. Medium bodied. Personally Ilike Ruination better, this is impressive, ruinous at that. I prefer my DIPAs with an exceptional amount of balance and bright, crisp peppery finish. Leans a little sweet.

Draft - pours deep gold with white head and great lacing. Nose is cat urine. Super hoppy and mild malty backbone. Underwhelmed.

From 22oz bottle. Poured a lovely gold with a two inch head that quickly dissipated. Mild aroma. Was told RuinTen compared to Enjoy By, but that whereas Enjoy By screamed of fresh hoppiness, RuinTen takes its hoppiness in stride - ready, willing, and able to strip the enamel from your teeth (but in a good way). I don't disagree with that. Powerful hoppy flavor that stays on he tongue without blasting away the ability to taste a beer ala Palate Wrecker. Glad I was able to grab two bottles. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a rich amber with massive off white head. Aromas of pine resin and a barrage of earthy floral notes. Taste is huge hoppy flavors of pine, grass cuttings, grapefruit, and citrus. Finish is dry and hop forward with a brilliant lingering bitterness. Very VERY earthy beer.

NeZZeN (6) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2013 does not count
Poured a nice clear burnt orange,small 1/2 finger head, decent lacing. This is one of, if not the best, DIPA Iíve ever had ! The aroma hits you right in the face HOPS..HOPS.. HOPS. Nice citrusy/resinous aroma. The taste is a balanced bitter/sweet and lingers forever. I donít know if this could be bettered in any way. This is the way I remembered it from last year, smooth on the palate and delicious. Donít wait to try this fresh, as it does not age well.
