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 ďA Liquid Poem to the Glory of the Hop,Ē 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

radio_nowhere (754) - Maryland, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Bomber bottled 6/9/14 (so ~1.5 months) poured into snifter glass, semi-cloudy golden-ambery color with bright white soapy head. Aroma of huge hops; grapefruit, orange, lemon, pineapple (okay general citrus really) and some pine/resin. Taste is huge hop flavor/bitterness with some notes of bread, honey and light caramel. Heavy body, low carbonation, slick, oily with long lingering syrupy bitter finish. Itís a huge DIIPA from Stone, I got exactly what I was expecting and enjoyed it.

Taverner (1088) - San Ramon, California, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Has the effect of a malty Ruination. They doubled, or elevened all of the ingredients. Only doing so, takes away the fruity flavors of itís namesake.

Brigadier (2890) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2014
22 ounce bottle
When I came across a fresh bottling of this at a great price I could not pass up the chance to sample another world class IPA. A true palate wrecker, it nonetheless has a grace that makes you reach for the bottle the second your glass is empty. I donít know if this will somehow get folded into the regular rotation but it goes right up there with the rest of their line as a great beer accessible to nearly everyone.

Aroma / Appearance - A polished bronze body shimmers with life. The gentle vanilla head sits like a layer of crust. Carbonation bubbles and adds an extra sparkle. Grassy resin rises like an uncut field during the peak of the summer. Bread dough adds some depth without washing out the assertive bitterness.

Flavor / Palate - Carbonation tickles the mouth and scrubs away any residual tastes. Preparing for the wave of bitterness to come, it unleashes a torrent of lemons, resin, and bright hops. This is a great companion to the usual Ruination and one that everybody should get as soon as they can.

agl108 (780) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2014
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.

RickTStiles (709) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 18, 2014

Bebum (280) - - 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 (4843) - 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.
