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

Draft. Aroma is a piney hop. Appearance is bronze with a nice lasting head. The taste starts a grapefruit and rolls into a piney bitter. Palate is hoppy. Overall, a great beer. Would buy again, if i could. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear copper like a shiney new penny under a generous foamy laceful head, the same hue of slightly yellowed old paper. Nose is amazing with every aroma you could want in an IPA: grapefruit zest, candied orange, sweet rich caramel, fresh picked earthy leafy hops, sticky lupulin, pine resin, and more sweetness. Big underlying candy like sweetness on the nose. Flavor is big and hoppy and very bitter, but not as acidic as some other Stone brews, mercifully. I mean, still very bitter, but it’s a DIPA so it’s forgiveable. Lots of earthy pine resin and dank earthiness start the flavor followed by bitter grapefruit peel and more earthy leafy freshness, quite earthy, with a malty backbone of caramell breadiness and a touch of high alcohol esters. A sipper not only in alcohol, but in potent hoppiness. Gotta take it easy on this, delicious as it is. But this is undeniably the best smelling IPA I ever encountered.

Aroma: Big pine resin aroma. Appearance: Deep gold with a moderate white head. Flavor: Malt, bitter hops and alcohol. Palate: Full bodied with a light syrupy quality and moderate corbonation. Overall: Excellent balance and great double IPA!

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Huge candied citrus, tangerine, grapefruit, herbs and pine, drizzled with honey. Big, bold malt backbone and full body. Surprisingly smooth and balanced for size and alcohol. 10% alc is well hidden. Not overly bitter... as sweet malt cuts the bitterness. Classic West Coast DIPA. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

bottle. clear orange with a small, creamy, white head. sweet candy-like hops with orange and citrus. bitter as hell and a beast of an abv that doesn’t let you forget. medium bodied and sweet. annoyingly boozy with wicked bitterness.

Concealer (728) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2013
An amber golden pour with a foamy head the color of a golden penny. Aromas of pine, spice, citrus, and grapefruit with an underlying hint of malt. Taste is an upfront bitter and warm hops followed by sweet fruit (pinnapple and citrus) and malt- ends with a spicy warmth to go with that big 10.8%. It is rather remarkable, actually.

Hoppy and a little tart aroma. Dark amber color with thin white head. Tastes hoppy (of course) and a bit tart. Es muy delicioso.Quiero beber con un hamberguesa.

Pours a copper color, piney hop aroma, hops slap you in the face ith a bitter citrusy finish, very good overall

Rrauth (1115) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Bomber. Classic copper clear color. Whitish dissipating head. A west coast palate temptation if I've ever had one. Over the top marketing but still a great ipa. Bitter grapefruit. Long lasting and can enjoy a bottle a while. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
