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

I like it. I've had better but this one is different enough to more than like it. Great color. Not a huge head and I love a nice foamy head. Wonderful scent and very sweet floral an citrus taste. The unique part is the spice. There is a nice spice in there. I can't place it but I enjoy it. It's not my favorite in the category but the scent, the overall taste, and the labeling makes me want another. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 bomber to cervoise. Pours clear amber. Creamy tan head. Aroma is HUGE hops...pine, booze, resin, dank. Taste is roasty toasty malts, booze and a wall of wet hops. Finish has that definitive Stone flavor...not sure how to describe. Lasts and lasts on the palate with a lot of heat.

"A stage dive into a mosh pit of hops." As a headbanger and botanical beer freak, that slogan is like a siren’s song. Let’s be honest, though, the words "Triple IPA" would be enough to ensnare me. When I cracked open RuinTen, I was (rightfully) expecting a hop bomb of the highest degree. What I wasn’t ready for was how complex and artful (yes, artful, damnit) RuinTen would be. This Imperial IPA pours ruby-amber with off-white foam. The aroma? It’s floral, earthy, spicy, piney, tropical, and malty. The taste? Damn, there’s so much going on in here. There’s candy-like malt, juicy hops (big tropical note - orange, grapefruit, peach), and wet, resinous pine. The body is crisp, chewy, and totally dry at the very end. You’ll feel the booze, but the taste hardly penetrates the barrier of hops. For me, this is like Pliny but with more hops. In other words, take a bow, Stone.

Stone is amazing. Packing 10% into a deliciously drinkable IPA is an impressive feat. The hops are subdued by the alcohol ever so perfectly. That is all ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Everything I love in a beer, tons of flavor, strongy hoppy taste, and perfectly bitter.

Lots of pine on the nose. Pours a honey gold with a thick off white head. Damn. This is pretty good. Very well balanced. Lots of malt and a thick mouthfeel. Resin and bitterness and a boozy finish. Very nice.

Look - Copper orange, see through body. White head with medium sized bubbles. Medium sized head with normal pour. Lacing. Smell - Grapefruit. Malt. Pineapple. Pine. Lemon. Taste - Grapefruit and light malt. Bitter pine on the finish. Well balance blend of hop and citrus. Feel - No carbonation bomb all at once but throughout. Medium to heavy feel. Sticks to the tongue. Overall - I enjoyed Enjoy By July 4, 2015 better than Ruinten. Ruination 2.0 was a step lower than this one. I love the dank, grapefruit taste.

Had this beer on tap. Pours a gorgeous amber. Very tropical, orange, crazy hoppy, very bitter, dry malt, very dry. The alcohol is masked well and this beer gets the job done. Very, very good beer..

UPDATED: APR 17, 2015 Presentation: It was poured from a brown bomber bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 10.8%. It also had a nice description of the beer. Appearance: The body has a hazy look and an inviting amber color. This is topped with a good thick head. The head is light tan and slowly settles down as I drink. This leaves some lacing on the glass. Smell: It’s aroma is exactly what you want from a Stone IPA. It leads of bright tropical fruit and citrusy hops. It also brings solid sweet maltiness to the nose as well. Taste/Palate: The base is a solid sweet bready maltiness with juicy tropical fruit, mango and grapefruit jumping right out. The finish has a good bitterness slowly fading of the tongue. The palate feels full and the carbonation is active but smooth overall.

A tad overly bitter as compared to the regular version but what the hell, a 10 beer all day long, wish it was year round...

From a bottle. Pours opaque orange amber with a bubbly frothy off white head and lots of lacing. Tastes like sweet caramel, nutty malt, orange citrus, grapefruit hops, and smooth booze. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like caramel, nutty malt, citrus hops, pine hops, and smooth alcohol.
