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

Really nice citrus aroma. Poured with a nice head into a snifter. Nice IIPA flavor - buttery citrus.

Had this one on tap, after the Stone Enjoy By 31-10-15, at Ernie´s Tin Bar, Petaluma - and I was about ready for anything. Powerfully and aggressively hopped throughout, but still kind of balanced by the rich and fairly sweet malty base. Good stuff - when you´re ready for it.

Shared from a brown bomber bottle into a snifter glass. It poured a slightly hazy golden colour with white foam and lace. Belgian Tripel traits—grainy with heightened pepper and clove yeast phenols— but sticky sweet with unpleasant alcoholic heat. The larger-than-life, dank, grapefruity American hops didn’t help matters, in my opinion. Mushy, syrupy mouthfeel, not well-attenuated nor well-balanced. Disliked it, didn’t even finish the bottle. I sure don’t know how this get such high ratings.

kingaugusta (194) - Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2015
Pours the usual deep gold of a big IPA with a modest white head. Nose is pungent west coast hops and a little sweetness...just like I like it. The hops aren’t quite as abusive and potent in the flavor, but this is a very well made imperial IPA. Alcohol is totally hidden. A great addition to the hop head’s collection and a step better than the standard Ruination or Ruination 2.0.

willisread (2174) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 30, 2015
Tap at CBM Awajicho. Pours a clear rusty orange with a small off-white head that lingers throughout. Grapefruit zest, yuzu, pine and orange marmalade notes dominate the nose. Good malty sweetness on the palate with more citrus and pine coming through. Finish is a little boozy with a sharp bitterness and more orange marmalade.

Peter_L (1226) - SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2015
Tap@BA Vasagatan. Lass efter lass med tallbarr och kåda. Och så grape, ananas, med ett avslut av en hint anis. Smaken är ren glädje på fat. Besk, jovisst. Stram, japp. Mot slutet liten antydan av maltsötma. Mjuk och len munkänsla. Alkoholbomb med fyllig och lng eftersmak.
