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

Drank with Marijn, Bram and Lennart in the Stone brewery bar (awesome place!) in Berlin. Very nice beer. Sweet, and a bit bitter. High viscosity and very rich beer.

On tap at Stone Berlin. Dark golden with a white head. Fresh and hoppy with grapefruit, pineapple, malt, caramel. The body was full and the finish bitter. Tasty.

Bottle. Pours clear copper with a medium white head. Aroma of fine hops but there is a little skunk in the finish. Some sort of problem with the malt bill or fermentation. I’ve detected it in dozens of beers that I’ve come to know as "headache" beers, or beers that will give me a hangover well before I get drunk. The alcohol is well hidden. Finish is bitter and sour. But overall, a foul ball from an otherwise great brewer.

Blurring the line between a west coast BW and a triple ipa. Actually surpasses some that call themselves BW. Big, malty, bitter and hop aromas. Pours a dark Amber from a 22 that coats your tongue but does linger too long. Citrus and caramel. Lacy head dissipates quickly. It even works on a warm summer evening enjoyed with a Rocky Patel. Recommended.

Let’s get this one tiny negative out of the way; medicinal on the nose. All the good stuff: Intense toffee, pine and orange aromas, lesser tobacco aroma, bitterness and not too sweet. Chewy mouthfeel, finishes quick an clean. The best (and only) TIPA, DIPA or IPA I’ve ever had. One of the my top best brews and I’m so glad I did not share this. Super bonus: $10 Us for a bomber-the beer goods have smiled down upon me.

jsporrer (622) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Pours a dark golden amber with a thick creamy off white head. Light carbonation with plenty of lacing. Nice strong aroma of pine and citrus. Light syrupy texture with medium bitterness. Full mouth feel with lingering flavors. Fairly smooth, warm finish. Interesting and enjoyable but a tad too bitter for me.

Piwo w kolorze ciemnego bursztynu z lekką opalizacją. Chyba trafiła mi się nieco felerna butla bo ogólnie piwo mnie nie zachwyciło. W aromacie czuć mieszankę karmelu i chmieli w charakterze czerwonych owoców z lekką nutą alkoholu. Po dłuższym zastanowieniu przypomina nieco barley wine. W smaku nieco płaskie i słodkie. I co najgorsze w miarę picia jakieś takie niepijalne lekko kapuściane się zrobiło. Piwo z przesyłki z Kanady.

CacheManyHose (575) - HONG KONG - JUL 23, 2016
Drank at the Stone 25th anniversary event at Craftissimo. Clear red-brown. Very, very massively hoppy. So resinous it's almost minty. San Diego style IPA with the hoppiness dialled up. Little bit of spice in the nose. Body is smooth, bitter, not much carbonation, slightly sweet floral finish. Very good.
