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

Stone RuinTen 2014. Nice. Lots of expected hops and citrus, mid plate sweetness and caramel finish. Lots of malt. I prefer Enjoy By but hey, what are you gonna do? Good Double IPA.

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.

Bottle (22oz): Clear golden color with nice head. Very nice IPA. Medium body with full mouth feel. Hops, carmel, very little beiierness. Well balanced. Need to get more.

Tstamba (308) - Maryland, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bomber to a pint. Orangey gold with thin white head and lacing that lingers. Another strong IPA from Stone... Huge hop presence with grapefruit, zest, pine resin, dank ness... Balanced with strong malt backbone. Dry bitter finish, hardly notice the alcohol... A keeper!

On draft. Pretty special beer. Enormous hops, of course, but balanced. The flavor ends up as kind of a hoppy milk chocolate. The alcohol is present, but not arch. Beautiful beer.

MayorOfSudz (36) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Aroma of strong citrus hops, apricot, and light coffee notes. Clean golden amber color with decent lacing. A bulldozer of caramel, sweet malty goodness and crunky hops hits all at once. Dense layers of flavors. Sweet and bitter notes running amuck. Joy. Not a strong alcohol punch in any one area, but you can tell its a double digit ABV by the time the finish rolls out. Plenty to talk about with each sip. Really great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured a deep Orange color with a large white head. Aroma is really nice like fresh hops. Citrus and creamy orange flavors. Very hoppy with some slightly syrupy citrus flavors. Overall a bit syrupy but nice hop flavors.
