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

Full-bodied for sure; great hoppy aroma and flavor. Super long finish. I get more pine here than citrus. Class Stone.

A ruby golden color, very pretty. Nice amount of white head. Very hoppy smell, pine, lemon, twigs, earth. An intense taste of hop bitterness but a fair amount of sweetness and malt to balance. Fairly bitter afterwards as well. Huge hop beer is what it is, sip with caution. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DAMN! Now THIS is an awesome hoppy beer! Ruination is always my go to beer and this tops it. Aroma was thick with full dank hops. It was almost hot it was so hoppy. Pour was a medium gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was strong, bitter and delicious. The best IIPA I’ve had all year. Strong resin and pine. Notes of sweet malt are the afterthought and just make a quick appearance. This beer had more pine flavor than any other hoppy beer I’ve had. Strong and hot in the mouth with good carbonation. The mouth is left wet and bitter in the finish. Outstanding

(Bottle). Light amber complexion with thick tan head. Awesome aroma of fresh pink grapefruit. The flavor is intense hops balanced with sweetness. Somewhat sticky. Alcohol well masked behind the hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Block (2073) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2013
This is a badass beer. Amber pour with a thin white head. Aroma is hoppy and sweet. Medium body and not nearly as heavy as I was expecting. A sweet syrupy finish. The alcohol is hidden behind a body of grapefruit, citrus, and hops. A great celebratory beer.

Bottle. Damn this is amazing. Aroma blows you away. Loaded with floral, citrus hops. Palate is nice and flavor is solid. Hop/alcohol strong. One of the IIPA's I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dalekliz (907) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber with a small white bubbly head. Aroma of citrus hops, orange zest, a bit of pine, sugar, malt. Huge bitter taste, of tart citrus hops, pine trees, malt, and a hint of candied orange peel. Lingering crisp bitterness. Great IIPA.
