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

Great Beer. I had high expectations for this beer and it met or exceeded all of them easily. It is a very well balanced brew that has the nice bitter noted that are synonymous with the Ruination brand.

Mango, pineapple, and lilly nose. Clear amber, headless. Tripel sec, tangerine, grapefruit, orange. Medium body, mouthfeel is a bit harsh, rather hot. Very fruity and delicious, but texture isn’t good.

beerbaaron (1124) - Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Radiant orange amber. Large creamy off-white head. Ultra inviting aroma. Everything you would expect. Super hoppy. Sweet and juicy. Well balanced bitterness. So drinkable still! I thought I would find something really abrasive here but was met with beautiful nectar instead. Coulda easily finished the bomber solo. More please..

bigda83 (109) - Jamestown, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Pours a deep orange and slightly hazy with a small white head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, floral, and maybe a bit of tropical fruit mixed in. Taste is bursting with hops and grapefruit really shines. Some pine comes out too and a mild dankness. Medium body and the 10.8 is hidden fairly well. Bottled 6-30 and drank 7-4 so that was one fresh beer!

Bottle. This is a vicious hp bomb that will blister your tongue with IBUs. Very good and very zippy.

VinegarStroke (260) - Napa, California, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle: 2014: clear, deep golden hue, with medium head and great lace. Massive lift. Fresh hops and almost smells like wet hopping. Floral, tropical, ripe and not reductive or rubbery. Loads of malt but hard to see under the hops. Off dry, not sour, and high bitterness. Lads of flavor, balanced, rich, long and even. Just a massive beer with Huge flavor. Classic west Coast double IPA.

On draught at Bailey’s Taproom. Deep dark golden color. Aroma is pine, cherry, and tropical citrus. Taste is pine resin, dark cherry, passionfruit, pineapple, and sweet grapefruit. The hops are aggressive but not bitter whatsoever. Sweet citrus and cherry finish, with some warming.

Bottle. Copper color, clear. Light, creamy head. Citrus, orange hoppy aroma. Very hoppy - citrus, malt in the background. High bitterness that lingers but in a good way. Drink this one slow - it's a heavy hitter.

This reddish colored beer has a citrus hop aroma and big big hop flavor. It has a little subtle sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Awesome brew. I actually chose this over brewdog’s equivalent. Very hoppy and kinda earthy on the nose. Awesome appearance, decent head retention and lacing. Great taste, hops throughout but intensifies on the finish. Very smooth for the amount of hops. One of my favorites now. Will be a go to from now on
