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

Emeister84 (2041) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Aromas of pine, citrus and tropical fruit, resin, flora, caramel, and a subtle nuttiness. Clear, dark copper, with a mostly lasting, off-white head. Strong, dry, and bitter, with a well rounded fruitiness redolent of apricot, pineapple, and red berries, and with a savory, nutty malt backbone. Medium-full bodied with nice carbonation, and a finish chock full of hops and malts. An enormous beer that stays clean throughout all its complexity.

ccex (1188) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Bomber pours q clear orange/copper color with modderate eggshell head and good lacing. Aroma is full of fresh tropical and citrus fruits with a little pine and some caramel. Taste is potent and bitter but with some sweetness in the middle and some dank hops in the finish. Body is medium with a sticky mouthfeel. I never would have guessed this one has such a high ABV without reading the label. Another exceptional double IPA from Stone.

Mbolism (2) - Oregon, USA - JUL 3, 2013 does not count
RuinTen is a supurb IPA, with a powerful array of palate pounding taste. The aroma is bold, but well balanced with the even bolder hops to present a well rounded experience. I love me a good IPA, and my first taste of this, courtesy of the most excellent Yeasty Beasty, in Monmouth, OR, made quite the impression. Stone keeps upping the bar.

Pours dark golden. Peachy, orangey, resiny nose and taste. Nice balance of sweet and bitter. Somewhat slick mouthfeel.

twgordon (40) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Reddish brown. Bomber to glass. Slightly sweet with the mist melodic hopfest you can dream of. Drink this if you have the palate sophistication!

soupy (35) - - JUL 3, 2013
Pours a a reddish bronze. Full of flavor, smooth considering the ABV (10.8), hops definitely present. Aroma present in every sip, also tastes fresh, almost freshly poured from the tap.

Poured from a bomber. Crystal clear copper colored with minimal head. Great aroma, smelled of floral and citrusy hops. Tastes of citrus hops with slight bitterness. Hides the alcohol extremely well. Incredible brew.

Scopey (12248) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine, Tampa. It pours clear deep orange with a small white head. The nose is fresh pine, resin, sticky orange, tinned peach, marmalade, varnish, brown bread and alcohol. The taste is resinous, pine, varnish, booze, leaf, orange, marmalade, peppery and earth with a lingering bitter finish. Full body, moderate carbonation and oily, viscous mouth-feel. Nice flavour, but pretty damn boozy. Big stuff all-round!
