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

Aroma is amazing hoppy and honey with some malts but not as heavy as i thought it would be. Appearance is amber honey with some deep orange notes. Taste is bitter hops and then slammed with citrus orange and light lemon, somewhere in between u get honey. Im unsure where though. Palate is smooth and carbonated with some tingling on the tongue haha. Some oaky notes with more downn the gullet. Purely and simply superb beyond a measure on this app, more than worth the 13 i payed for a pint and a third. Got the last bottle and purely exstatic.

Bomber via SL... This is my kind of brewski. Pours a murkey muddy orange not much head. Leaves a good lacing left on the glass. Nose of orange peels, fruity, pine needles. Taste is juicy, pine needles, fruity, big malt character but still hop forward. Alcohol is warming but hidden well. Carbonation level is average, body is smooth. Nice sipping beer. Overall: Good brew by Stone

A beautiful orange pour, slightly hazy with a fluffy white head. The aroma is absolutely amazing, I want to lay back and soak my body in it. This is tropical fruit overload, grapefruit, peaches, mangoes, and passion fruit, backed up by the slightest hint of malts. The taste, OMFG! A hoppy, bitter masterpiece. Dominated by the hops, it’s piney and earthy, with loads of floral and citrus notes. The alcohol is so well hidden. Medium to full bodied. Thick and oily in all the right ways. Outstanding beer! On my way to pick up more.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2012 Cloudy dark orange,one finger head,some lacing. Aroma is orange blossom honey,soft malt,toast,tangerine,fruit.slight alcohol. Taste is soft,malty,with tangerine honey/pine foward hops,sweet carmel,with bittered piney grapefruit finish short but lingering flavor.Slightly salty,alcohol when cold but it is less noticable as it warms some. Some fruity candy bubblegum notes noticable more as it warms. Noticed alot of herbal this time around,almost b-vitaminy.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 31, 2012
22oz bottle. Clear amber/orange with a small off white head. Aroma of grapefruit peel, tangerine, pine and bubble gum. Flavor is bitter throughout with a light malt sweetness and an alcohol bite. Medium body with a dry, clean, bitter finish. Great beer, wish we would have got this up in Alaska sooner to try is super fresh but oh well.

A hazy orange/yellow colored beer, with a light beige head. The aroma of fruits, a lot of citrus with orange and hops. The taste of fruits citrus with peaches. There are bitter hops with notes of spices.The aftertaste is some sweet with bitter and notes of alcohol.

dnstone (2164) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Clearish golden with copper tinge and well standing white, off-white head. Fantastic piney-citrus aroma. Hop flavor attacks your mouth swiftly but enjoyably...a sticky piney citrussy yet with a good balanced sweet malty body. Really just a great hop bomb

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Pours a slightly cloudy deep orange / amber with a thick off white head that drops quickly. Aroma is hoppy heaven. Citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit, definitely floral, but also pine. Compared to other DIPA:s, this is simply unique. From the aroma, you’d never guess the abv (but certainly the ibu!). Taste is much more malty than the regular Ruination. Clear DIPA there, with a thick malty sweetness of toffee and butterscotch up front before the pungent, rich bitterness takes over. It’s more extreme, yet more balanced than its lesser sibling. The finish is massive and infinite, about the only thing that doesn’t come through is all that alcohol. Low carbonation paired with an incredibly full and creamy body rounds off this ultimate IPA. Ruination is my favorite IPA. This one might not be better but it’s just as good, and unique. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber from BevMo! In Glendale. This is a robust and boozy iipa. Nevertheless, it's quite nicely balanced. This is good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This burns on the way down like the bartender at Farmhouse Tap and Grill says. Super fruity, citrusy, super hoppy. I’ve been sick of IPAs recently but it takes a beer like this to remind me everything they can be. Tastes super bitter with great booze balance. On tap.
