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

This starts with a huge blast of grapefruity hops. It pours a clear reddish-amber, with a thin white head that retreats to a ring fairly quickly. If you like balanced IIPA’s, stay away from this one. This is a total hop bomb, with just enough malt there to give it a nice body, and act as a buffer for the grapefruit bitterness to ride in on. There’s a long lingering bitter finish, and a bit of dryness. The alcohol is a bit noticeable as a touch of heat. I have the feeling I’ll be buying lots of this while it’s available.

Excellent beer. Copper color, strong sweet and hippy aroma. Sweet at first, then bitter finish that lingers. Not a lot of carbonation.

Davros (2408) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2015
Pours vibrant amber, fading head. Nose shows lashings of clean malt alongside resinous and piny hops. Similar falvours. Cloyingly malty with some spicy, piny and resinous hops.

wvhoran (449) - Tasmania, - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle. Rather dark amber colour with a large white. Dense aroma with caramel, grass, herbal, fruitiness. The flavour is sweet, toffee, with resinous and oily character, extreme hopping, very bitter. A strong body and overall a highly enjoyable beer.

Beergaard (236) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2015
Bitter and citric with a strong and sweet malt backbone. Not the most interesting Stone beer if you ask me.

jc1762 (245) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2015
Poured into a teku showing cloudy orange amber with moderate filtration and a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows moderately intense notes of pineapple, cannabis, and pine with a hefty malty background. The palate is moderately carbonated and medium bodied. Flavors of sweet malt and very light pineapple. The finish shows the distinct cutting IPA bitterness. Lightens up on the linger to showcase more of the malts and slightly fruitier flavors.

Pours a clear golden amber with a small white frothy head. Aroma is caramel, grass and tropical fruits. Taste is caramel, ripe pineapple, pine and very slight biscuit malt with a nice lingering hop bitterness. Well balanced with some big flavours.

pivo (2640) - GERMANY - AUG 22, 2015
Lovely shimmering amber color and a big fluffy head. Bright hop nose but faint. Massive body: malt, alcohol and then a hop wallop. Bam. Tingly bitter in the sides of the mouth after the swallow. Hops gallore. It is a palate ruiner.

YogiBeera (2550) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Nice deep Amber color with a beautiful frothy head! Nice fresh cut gras aroma. Intense hoppy bitterness accompanied by some malty traces. Clinging to the tooth of the mouth. Nicely balanced

For all the machismo about this beer, it’s actually the subtlety that nails it. For a start, it’s better as it warms - the flavours then blend together a lot better and the volume is turned up for both aroma and taste. The heavy elements then combine well - the hops prove orange marmalade; the malt gives a robust caramel base; the alcohol provides a kick towards the end, and then the hops return to provide the bitterness. If you take your time with it then it really rewards you with a peppery finish and smooth power throughout. Aroma is mostly piney and not as big as I expected. Typical IPA colour with little head. Thick, oily body.

Draft. Poured deeper amber with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up syrupy caramel and honeyed malts with fresh pine resin and citrus around.. peppery and warm on the back of the nose. The flavor found a sweet base of caramel with bright, strong citrus and peppery bitterness around.. finished with tasty, bitter, resiny hops and a nice kiss of sweetness. Heavier-bodied and thick on the palate.. good flow, though.. great stuff!
