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

dukeredhair (243) - California, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Aroma of citrus, herbal, grass and cat piss. The bigger these things get the closer they get to cat piss on cut grass this is no exception. It’s kind of a turn off. Appearance is nice,amber clear with a large head, nice lacing. Taste is a decent amount of malt for the style but then in comes the hops and the lasting taste is more cat piss. Palate is a bit thick. Overall it’s a big IIPA with big hops but somehow these big IIPAs are starting to feel like complete overkill, like they’ve gotten so big that what made them good is starting to collapse on itself.

Samuel214 (554) - SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2016
Flaska från SB. Provning med Nerikes Ölsällskap. Klar, guldig med gräddbeiget, krämigt skum som lämnar rester längs sidorna på glaset. Stor, humlepackad doft av bitter apelsinmarmelad, apelsinskal, färska tallskott, honung, stickig humlekotte, kakdeg och knäck. Stor, oljig och klibbig kropp. Något spritig med fyllig smak av kola, karamell, stor beska och fyllig sötma. Kaxig efter förväntan. Mycket gott.

Flarra. Mycket ladgårdskänsla med lite the i. Smaken malt med sötma. Torkad frukt. Jättego efterbeska. Härlig öl.

OminouSC2 (447) - SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2016
Amber color, medium beige head. Sweet fruit aromas like peaches, oranges, dried apricots, caramel with subtle pine hops in the background. Really big taste! Like a hopped up american Barley wine. Sweet taste of ripe fruits, dried fruits and caramel that quickly turns around to a big, round pine hop finish. Great beer!

3 finger beige head, amber body. Nose: Pine, resin, spruce, soap, malt and caramel. Taste: Resin, pine, grapefruit, spruce, malt, oranges, caramel and alcohol. Long bitter ending.

SeniorZozo (1265) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 18, 2016
TAP @ #1 Bevog Beerfestival Austria. Clear red-brown. Very, very massively hoppy. So resinous it’s almost minty. San Diego style IPA with the hoppiness dialled up. Little bit of spice in the nose. Body is smooth, bitter, not much carbonation, slightly sweet floral finish. Very good.

9/14/16. Bomber. Big boozy and over the top. Drink accordingly. Picking up more pine and tropical than citrus in the nose. Huge hop body rounded out by the ABV. Like Ruination better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hub66 (389) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 14, 2016
Couleur ambrée; mousse beige; arômes et goût maltés, fruités et un peu liquoreux; bière un peu crémeuse mais avec trop d’alcool à mon goût; finale moyennement amère

olsvammel (5928) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2016
On tap at Örebro Ölcafé. Hoppy smell with caramel and also a bit boozy. Similar taste. Strong bitterness. A bit too rough. Ruination is way better in my opinion.

gnoff (9569) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2016
Draught at 3 små rum, Göteborg, on August 28, 2016.
Clear deep amber to copper color, small off-white head. Malty, grainy, alcohol, a wee bit fruity scent. Alcohol, a bit sweet, slight malty taste, mainly alcohol though. Fairly well balanced, but noticeablt strong. Alcohol and a bit salty aftertaste, also hints of cardboard. Medium full mouthfeel, medium to medium low bitterness. A triple IPA really? Not overly hoppy.

hrabren (920) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 9, 2016
On tap at Who Cares for Beer 2016 Beer Festival, Bevog Brewery, Bad Radkersburg, Austria. Shared with His Highness Kaiser und König Igor and Rasta Teacher Mark. Poured as Stone RuinTen 2016. Clear dark golden to amber, off-white head. Fruity hops, seems very innocent. Malty also. Smooth sweetness. Warming, alcohol present, light finish. Soft carbonation, medium body.
