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 copper with a 2 cm off white head. Hint of citrus hops, pine hops that vary in intensity with time. The hops linger on the tongue for many many minutes after swallowing. Not overpowering until after finishing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

DSG (6242) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Slightly hazy deep golden with an off-white head. Aroma of hops - piney, resinous, with a light weedy note and some malt in background. Flavor starts malty and sweet, biscuity and a bit caramelly, continues with piney and resinous hops and a bitter finish. Rounded mouthfeel, a bit oily. Good.

Pours very hazy orange with lots of foamy white head. Aroma is heavy on the citrus and pine, very nice. Nice heavy malty backbone of caramel and toffee. On the hop side it is pretty bitter with alot of pine and citrus and also a little tropical fruit / melon. Yum.

Pours hazy orange with a white creamy head. Aroma of pine, caramel, and maple. Grapefruit and pine flavor with maple sweetness and a sharp hop bite at the end. Blissful.

kkleu357 (334) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Hazy orange body with a big white fluffy head. Slightly old at 3 months, but hoping it is still good. Huge malty earth aroma. Some pine smell. Very smooth. I do wonder if the hops have tapered off some because it is more malty and less hoppy than I thought it’d be, but still tastes great. Good amount of sweetness, but still quite bitter. My guess fresh this is great. Today I think it is very good.

pottygok (486) - Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Aroma: Resin and floral hops, but a bit faint. Appearance: Clear amber with a nice tan head. Taste: Light bitterness throughout. Palate: Medium body, dry texture, soft carbonation, soft finish. Overall: Meh....the hops are there, but not as aggressive as I expected. I’m a bit disappointed by this beer. I was expecting and over the top IPA, and got something much more bland.
