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

ACHops (1265) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2014 On tap @ Urban Family Public House. Pours medium pale copper with minimal head. Aroma is big pine hops. Taste is more of the same: sticky grapefruit hops, thick caramel body, bitter piney finish. I remember my first Ruination and how it was bigger than anything I’d had before. At 7.7%, that was lost in the fray over the past few years. Love to see Stone step up and show everyone that they can do a DIPA better than anyone else. What would it take for this to become a permanent fixture in the lineup? Revisiting 2014 version, 2 years later to the day... Amazing rich sweet malt aroma with huge citrus, floral, and pine hop notes. Taste as originally noted above remains true. Extremely rich, but so well balanced that it tastes well below the 10.8%. Don’t believe I’ve had a DIPA any better than this - the gold standard. THANK YOU STONE FOR LISTENING AND MAKING THIS AN ANNUAL RELEASE! :)

kajser27 (1183) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 30, 2016
Clear, amber colored, medium- off white head, not toolasting. Aroma is malty, caramel, some carob, alcohol, strong tropical fruits and some pine. Taste is medium to very sweet malt, caramel, carob, some orange hard candy, tropical fruits, citrus, light pine, medium hoppy aroma, moderate+ bitterness, dry finish, some alcohol and warmth. Medium to full bodied, soft+ carbonation, resiny. Because of the carob and hardcandy I’d say it’s probably not the freshest bottle but still very good.

Sdaniel90 (818) - Mexico City, MEXICO - MAY 17, 2016
Bottle, 65cl. Clear orange with a frothy/creamy tan head. Sticky aromas of floral hops, caramel, pine, alcohol. Medium to robust bodied with moderate carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet with heavy bitterness. Deep roasted flavors into a stupidly bitter hoppy finish. Extravagant and exquisite.

Lagerboy (1855) - 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)

oldrtybastrd (4911) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2016
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.

malkyore (373) - - APR 2, 2016
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.

zacgillbanks (4141) - 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 (3746) - 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 (984) - 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)
