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

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

Bomber to glass. Pours a dark copper color, with little head. Aroma is malty, with very deep hops. Citrus, grapefruit, peaches, tropical fruit! Taste is malty, slight sugar, tropical fruit, citrus. Boozy finish, light burn and a solid bitterness. Mmm. Palate is medium body, medium carb. Overall a very well done double IPA, I dig it. Thanks Stone!

Mostly clear amber pour. Thick off white head. Lots of lacing. Hop aroma is ridiculous. Massive grapefruit. Floral. Candy sugar. Flavor is equally ridiculous. Huge hop flavor. Grapefruit. Tropical fruit. And candy. Super bitter finish. ---Rated via iPhone

2014 - This year’s release is not their best. The aroma is packed with malt with just barely noticeable floral hops. The flavor is better, still malty but a strong earthy hop spice that finishes dry with a ton of grapefruit... I went back and opened a second bottle and I’ve decided this is Old Guardian in Ruinten bottles. No joke, that’s what I taste with maybe a bit more lemon but a HUGE malt bomb.

7/14/14. 22 oz. bottle. Amber color with a white head. Huge floral aromas with citrus, pine and tropical fruit. Sticky, boozy caramel flavors, loads of hops, alcohol burn at the end with a long, hoppy finish.

Draft at Vintner last night. Deep gold/amber color, slightly offwhite head, massive citriousy hop aroma, incredibly smooth. Malt character is bumped somewhat to offset the huge hop bitterness. Incredible beer, perhaps the best IPA I’ve ever had.

amber color; big citrusy hop aroma; a big, agressively hopped double IPA; tons of great, citrusy hop flavor with a medium bodied malt base; definitely for hop heads only

Bomber, 2014 release. Strong pine resiny hop aroma with notes of citrus. Pours a dark golden color with a decent off-white head and moderate lacing. Huge, piney hop flavors with hints of grapefruit citrus and acidity. Finishes extremely dry with a huge amount hoppy bitterness. Delicious, palate wrecking goodness.
