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

On tap at the Leaf. Pours a deep amber orange color with a soapy head. Aroma of caramel, resin, and earthiness with some citrus mixed in. Sweet caramel taste with harsh hop hit and citrus notes on back end. Maltier hop bomb. One trick but nice.

Bottle thanks to Greg. Pours a pretty copper with a thin white head. Aroma is super dank pine, heavy hop resin, honey, sweet fruit, citrus. Flavor is big and sweet, almost a gooey hop resin finish.. Light bitter. Med/thick mouthfeel. Really good stuff, booze comes through a bit.

Copper color with a quickly falling medium head. Dank and citrus-laden aroma. Lots of grapefruit and tangerine. Bracing bitterness. Moderate malty base. Very dank and citrusy. Full bodied.

22 ounce bottle into snifter. Dark and hazy with a one finger head. Strong hop smell. Grapefruit and even more hops on the tastebuds. Stone def did this hop monster right

Pour from bottle. Golden. Aroma is tropicals - lovely. Taste is tropical fruits, then piney sweetness and bitterness. Quite juicy. Palate is sweetness and resin; very full bodied. Overall, not my sort of ipa, but nice and big.

Sweet nutty aroma with a bit of funk, almost like brussels sprouts. Pours clear orange with a thin white head. Smooth flavor with a bitter finish, definitely doesn’t seem like it’s a 10.8% beer!

Dark gold/orange pour with a thick white head. Aroma of apricot, cotton candy, and burned sugar. Very strong, sweet aroma. Silky on the palate, a rush of sweetness and stone fruit. Beautifully balanced bitter on the sweet, any less bitter and this would be undrinkable. A bit of piney, but balanced and delicious. Bitter continues on the finish, alcohol is nicely blended. This one is special. Would I drink again? Yes Yes. Would I order again? Definitely.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Growler from The Wink. Poured a clear orange, just a touch on the dark side, with a nice compact head. Aroma was a blast of tropical fruit hops and some sweet malt. Flavor is a match. Very full mouth feel, big malt sweetness and an almost oily character. Hops provide a ton of bitterness to balance. My mind thinks of baked mangoes. I liked this quite a bit, but think I prefer the original Ruination. But happy to get to try it since I somehow totally missed it the first time around.

Leave it to Stone to brew a great ipa with lots of Simcoe hops and make it worth something! Pours a beautiful copper color with lots of fruity notes on the nose. Some bread and biscuit notes on the palate. Beautiful lacing as always with a Stone beer. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The nose is an amazing boquet of dank hop probably simcoe and centenial. The mouthfeel is thick but not chewy like you might think. The hops definitely stand out, even against such a beat of a grain bill. The hop flavor lingers on the palate aftertaste along with a bit of a bitter twinge. If you see this beer, buy it
