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

22 oz. bomber. Poured slightly cloudy burnt orange with thin white head. Flavor is big, sweet malt with pine resin and tropical fruit. Lingering, somewhat tongue stripping bitterness. Tad chewy and boozy. As expected from Stone, yet another solid hop bomb.

Bebum (279) - - JUL 18, 2014
Deep gold with copper tones, dense lace. Full body, silky texture probably due to the high alcohol which is also responsible for the intense burn, very long palate, sweet and flavorful finish. Bittersweet to a high degree, balanced, Alcoholic and malty taste, reminds one of spirits. Delicious, all the same. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FROTHINGSLOSH (4831) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Sampled on draft att 3R6P this beer poured a dark orange-tan color with a large creamy orange-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy and sweetish pine, resin, a bit of bread and caramel. The flavor was bitter, and tangy pine, resin, grapefruit, pineapple and had a sour caramel and tobacco undertone. Intense. Long finish and full bodied. Interesting.

Gachupines (854) - USA - JUL 17, 2014
Amber color with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet caramel with a bit of fruity hops. Flavor is sweet, with notes of caramel and piney hops. A little resinous in the finish. Very well balanced, like a less aggressive Ruination. Wife: 3.6

Bottle. The look is clear, copper to amber in color, and clear. The smell is caramel, hops, alcohol, sweetness, piney, orange, and fruitcake. The taste is mostly the same, biting, hops, and good.

revolution2718 (209) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Pours a clear light amber with a solid fluffy head. Nose is floral hops, pine resin, some sweet malt, a bit of citrus. Taste is pine, floral hops, resin, lot of malt sweetness, some spicy hop, a bit of bitterness that builds as I drink more. I can feel the alcohol in my mouth, solid sticky body. Solid, didn't wow me. Too sweet IMO. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
