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 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

Bomber. Golden pour with frothy white head. Very nice floral nose of pine and citrus. Taste is over the top pine, with citrus and floral notes. Hardly a lick of any sweet malt backbone which really ruins this beer for me. Thin in the palate. Very one dimensional bitterness bomb.

Draft at Mello Fellow in Truckee CA. Pours a clear orange. Nose with abundant mango, pine, and resin hop. Taste grapefruit bite with mango fruit hop, tropical fruit sweetness, mid palate strong bitterness. Another excellent big IPA from Stone.

22 fl oz / 650mL bottle into a pint glass. Served cool. Aroma: Bursting with citrus and pine hop aroma. Thereís some mild-moderate malt backing it up too. Appearance: Clear orange with a light, white head. Itís less translucent than regular Ruination. Taste: Big, big hop profile, full of pine and citrus and itís fantastic. A tiny bit of malt semi-sweetness backs it up. Palate: Long, bitter finish. So, so good. Overall: What a fantastic brew. Itís more bitter than Ruination, and slightly more malty, but itís pretty subtle. Great, great beer though.

Beautiful orange with a thick head. Citrus, pine, and floral hops blend well together. Deep caramel sweetness remains on the tongue while the hop flavor hides in the finish. Very well put together.

Bottle. Copper with a thick white head. Aroma is very dank with some citrus. Taste is surprisingly malt forward with lots of caramel, rounding out with pineapple and more citrus. Solid palate. Very tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy orange rusty color. Nose is off citrus with very strong pine. Taste is very bitter with citrus, pine and a woody resin taste. Finish is dry with heavy bitter lingering. Feel I might be missing something ... But just not for me. Quaff score 6 / 10

Pours dark orange with a beige head and sweet, pleasant aroma of citrus, fruits, and hops. Taste is bitter throughout, lots of citrus, hop, grapefruit, pine, and sweet caramel hit your palate leading to a a slight burning, bitter, long finish. Tasty, strong DIPA

valpoaj (623) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JUL 2, 2013
On tap at Aces & Ales in Las Vegas - reddish amber pour - minimal head when it arrived at the table - leaves good lacing as it drinks. Aroma is relatively intense - heavily hopped...grapefruit, pine, some other citrus - hints of bread underneath - very resinous and enjoyable. Flavor is nice as well - had this one right after the FW Double Jack, and it was definitely a notch lower - but still good - heavily hopped, the hops are the show here, and although there is decent malt bill to fill this one out, there was a high level of bitterness throughout. Palate was creamy and thick - easy enough to drink, but heavy. Good beer that is very reminiscent of Ruination, and that is definitely not a bad thing!

Tap pour - @ RHP. Pours brilliant gold-orange with huge lasting fluffy white head. Big aromas of grapefruit, pine, and pungent oranges. Beautiful hoppy citrus and pine fruit on the palate. Big bitter and biting. Long finish. Delicious. West Coast hell yeah.

22 oz. bomber purchased from Max Liquor at Bishopís Corner in West Hartford, CT. Pours a deep golden, off white head, pretty good lacing. Smell is awesome, every great hop characteristic under the sun comes forward here. Taste is a slightly sweet luscious hop bomb. Tons of citrus and pine, perfect bitterness, plus a pleasant alcohol kick. Mouth feel is perfect for the style, slightly syrupy, yet crisp. Awesome DIPA, will be sure to pick up another.
