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 ďA Liquid Poem to the Glory of the Hop,Ē 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

Wow...simply one of the best beers Iíve ever had. Big time hops with a nice citrusy background. Not syrupy for a high-octane brew which is surprising. Itís a shame this isnít a regular brew...it is simply fantastic. If you see one, pick it up...if you see 10 buy them all.

Bottle at Aces & Ales, Las Vegas
Cloudy amber color; small head. Very nice hoppy aroma, resiny, some stable. Good body strength, it has a very strong flavor of toffee, modest sweetness, and a lacerating hopping, very resiny and fruity. Long final.

Draft at Rattle a while back & a bottle or two from New Beer (i think). Pours a deep amber body with nice white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is fresh citrus fruits, grapefruit, pine and light resin. Mouthfeel is bitter, active, and medium with notes of citrus burst, bitter grapefruit, fresh fruit, and rich fresh pine. Another awesome IPA from stone.

ogivlado (6659) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 3, 2012
Bottled 650ml. -Courtesy of luttonm, shared with him and Marko. Golden/amber coloured, small white head, strong aromatic hoppy fruity nose; really pleasant. Sweet caramel malty and very hoppy fruity taste with long lasting bitter finish and aftertaste. Also some subdued grapefruity notes, too. Enjoyable and....bitter. Thanks man for this one.

Padron4KM (737) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2012
22 oz bottle. Hazy orange, with a tight head and sticky lace.
Loads of sweet caramel malt dominate the initial nose, but the hops start to creep in slowly. Sweet orange, pine and earth.
Flavor mimics the aroma. Sweet at first, syrupy caramel, and some light toast. Hops follow with a healthy dose of citrus and backing of pine. Finish is long and citrusy. I think this is more balanced than the regular Ruination, however I miss the big grapefruit punch that I get in the regular.
Side note>>> The Ashton is way to mild to stand up to this beer. The subtle nutty sweetness would get lost imho. The Don Pepin would be an awesome choice as would the Litto Gomez, both of those have some spicyness that would pair well. If you are looking for a less spicy stick that will still hold up, try a Rocky Patel edge or any Padron.

Pretty amazing. Pours great dark amber colour with slight head. Holds in a pine / spruce hoppy aroma very well. Taste is strong bitter and delicious.

Draft at Coles, Buffalo. Copper orange pour, light head. Piney hops, resiny, grapefruit, peach, mango notes in the aroma. BIG sticky hop presense. Big bitterness in flavor. Mainly grapefuit & pine. Explosive citrusy fruity & piney hops. Wow

A deep amber pours from the bottle and trails off into lighter golds and amber once in the glass. A half finger head is white with large soapy bubbles that dissipate very quickly. Lacing is thick with a slight alcoholic "leg" to this beer. Sweet, sweet crystal malt on top lingering with biscuit and caramel. This is followed quickly by floral scents. Lots of stickiness to the scent. The floral aromas are followed by a bright grass scent that trails off. Holy Shit! Bright burning, resinous hops up front but balanced so well by the malt bill that this is just too drinkable! Flashes of orange, lemon and lime appear on the tongue but theyíre carried so well by caramel and sweet biscuit that the burning almost never happened. It begs for another drink! Slightly chewy in the mouth but the burning hops take away from this and clear it out extremely fast. One of the lighter DIPAs that Iíve had (surprisingly). Amazing. This beer is mind blowingly good and if I could buy this year round, I would. Never been a huge Stone fan but after this, I am a convert!

Radek Kliber (6825) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 25, 2012
On tap at Coles
Aroma cotton candy sugars, plenty heavy dose of hops, some citrus with balancing darker tannin black tea. 7+
Appearance neat, cloudy amber, large foamy creamy top. Rings of lace. 4+
Flavor and Palate : Yum. Plenty of hop but with refined lighter profile. Sweetness of sugars balance things up. Very mature set up. Definitely hoppy yet with good approachable softness. Has a sweet tooth. Perfect for Halloween.
