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 am quite pissed i only obtained one bottle of this. smoother bitterness wise than the regular ruination oddly. Incredible hop flavor that ruins your palate, made jameson later in the night taste like watah. awesome stuff.

Lagerboy (1808) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
Bomber, bottled on 06/22/15. Clear medium copper, mostly lasting firmer off-white foam. Strong dank oily hoppy aroma and taste, bitter piney citric and resinous, alcohol is prominent, leaner sweet caramel malt. Average carbonation, full bodied, aggressively hopped. Over the top with hop, still be bice to try a fresh one. Much preferred the Ruination. DNFL (Definitely Not for Lagerboys)

ours a deep dark orangish amber color. Aromas of big hop action, sweet malts, and more hops. Flavor has some bready maltsy tastes with nice grapefruit and floral hop taste. This is one hoppy sumbitch. Stone sure knows what they are doing.

Absolute hop bomb. A destructive force to the pallette. That’s about all. It’s pretty balanced in that it’s insanely alcoholic but outside of that it’s what you would expect from one of the ruiners from stone. Very good.

Clear copper pour with nice white head. Really big nose of citrus and caramel candy. Flavor is upside the head with hops that are balance out very nice.

zacgillbanks (4020) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Golden coloured with a thick head of white foam. It has a very rich, spicy, zesty, warming peppery hop and orange marmalade flavour followed by a smooth bitter-sweet juicy finish. Excellent!

MarcoDL (3627) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2016
Bottle at tasting. Golden orange pour. Aroma of pine, caramel and peach. Sweet bitter taste of dry pine, raisinous hops, caramel and a dry finish. Very close to a barley wine this one.

Franckg (870) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2016
Bouteille bue en août 2014. Explosion de houblon et d’amertume. Un petit goût d’alcool trop présent mais dans l’ensemble c’est une excellente ipa de Stone (encore)

I twirl on the twine and revel in the heat. I have a thirst at times and climb to the sun. I am hop. And i endorse this beer. Paid by my kidneys and liver. Feed the soil and you shall reap the bounty for years if you take less than you give. This ends the lesson. I need another of these.

spacecube (1562) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2016
650Ml bottle, pours clear pale gold, hoppy aroma, grapefruit and guava, resiny, sticky malts. Much like ruination, just a bit stickier and resinier (terrible english i know)

Well...didn’t realize what I had gotten into here. Bomber to tulip...temperature was right on. Big sniff...bonk...like having a fresh green piney hop smothered in raw molasses stuffed into your sinuses . First taste is caramel smooth across the tongue. Big round malty middle holds the bouquet through to the sweet not too boozy finish. Glad to have plucked this off the shelf. Have to go get another.
