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

I try this beer upon recommendation from a friend that has once again proven to be a great source. The aroma is strong and satisfying with a colour of honey. The taste is bursting with flavour.

Cloudy orange pour, small eggshell head with nice lacing. Great aroma, citrus, hops, pine and some spice. Flavor is citrus fruit, lotsa hops. Very smooth, improves as it warms. Tasty and delicious!

Pours nice clear amber, small head stays for a bit, comes down and leaves some lacings. Aroma is syrupy, pine needles mixed with tropical fruits, mango and peach - that is again mixed with hop extract. Taste is intensely hoppy. However, the sweet and malty body is strong as well, somewhat balancing the hops and helping it to taste not as a crazy hop tea. Sweetness then subdues and waxy herbal bitterness lingers in your mouth for minutes. Well worth of its classification into triple IPA, mad stuff.

Bottle from Kris Wines, Holloway. Honey coloured pour with a white head. Tons of citrus, tropical fruit, pepper spice, light herb and sacks of hops in the nose. Shed loads of citrus, sweet fruit, spice, caramel and bitter hops in the flavour. Warming alcohol, caresses the gullet. Huge hop finish. Lovely stuff!

Gerbeer (3083) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 14, 2015
650 ml bottle. Pours a deep copper color with moderate head. Aromas of candied fruit, dough, sweet malts, and light pine. Flavors of toffee, grapefruit, pine, dry candied fruit and more sweet malts. Light bitter finish. Great stuff

varanid99 (1000) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2015
Cloudy, orange/red pour with a thin white head, which dissipates fairly quickly. Grapefruit, piney, malt aromas, a bit tropical too. Taste is big, caramel with loads of pine, resin, grapefruit, a huge whack of bitterness, boozy warmth, a little sweetness, that bitterness and booze carries right through. Like a pleasant punch in the face.

200ml at Brewdog DogHouse, Glasgow (£4.40):
Another excellent Stone IPA with tonnes of bitterness balanced against sweet malts & sticky caramel flavours. A complex beer with a nice array of hop flavours & bitterness coming through on top of a full body that was easy to drink despite the strong alcohol content.

cheap (5259) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2015
Darker pale beer. IPA smell with a slight amount of BO. Creamy head. Rototiller from the start. Plows across my buds. Rude palate. Mouth coating. Wrecks al my taste senses. Just too much for me, wew. So many ABV for such a little price. Yucky, I think I’m getting dizzy near the end.

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.
