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

MadRobin (2505) - Silver Spring, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Poured from 22 oz. bottle. Hazy, sparkling, bright coppery orange with a 4-finger cream-yellow head and very good lacing. Aroma of citrus (especially orange), peach, mango, biscuit malt and pine. Taste of bitter hop resin and citrus on a powerful malt (mainly caramel) backbone. Some tropical fruit and pine come through at the finish. Alcohol in there too, but the hop and malt flavors sink it far below the surface. The hops remind me of the hop resin that gets on your fingers when you handle hop flowers. This is an intensely bitter beer. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ron (3178) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 26, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2015 Bottle. Aroma 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! Alcohol well hidden but very warming. Great pre-birthday beer! @#$%^&* Stone for adding triple to the name making me think it’s a new beer I have to rate when my beer cellar is packed with many others I have to find time to get to.

Medium orange pour; dense white head. Aroma is surprisingly subtle on this, consdering the burst of hops that hit you on first sip. First sip is explosive with citrus and grass hops. Lots of caramel malt too. Flavors settle down into a nicely balanced, smooth beer. Doesn’t taste like a 10% beer.

deekyn (1428) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 21, 2013
A- pours a slightly cloudy, vibrant copper with 1 finger of quickly dissipating off-white head. Solid lacing. S - strong Hops, pungent carmel malts and pine resin immediately. Some sun tea, general citrus and tropical fruits as well. M- solid stickiness with good carbonation, medium bodied and full palate. T - taste starts off with sweet malts and citrus - mangos and ripe apricots. Some biscuits, pine and muddled sugars in the middle moving on to a bitter, but efficient, grassy and grapefruit end.

My new favorite hop-massacre of a beer! Huge, Huge taste. Bold and bitter. This beer is a dream come true. Perfect head, great lacing. Crisp taste. I can't believe I like it more than Ruination, but I do! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chalicemaster (111) - Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2013
More balance than I was expecting, which is definitely a good thing. Bitter and hop-loaded, as expected, but a real interesting malt/spice backbone that made it incredibly drinkable. Very good.
