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

22 oz. bottle. Pours a lovely, rich copper color with a frothy head that dies quickly but perks up with a swirl. Nose marked by big citrus sweetness with pink and white grapefruit, orange flesh, lemon, along with pine sap, spruce, and big oily hop resins. Flavor brings more of the same, with that oily resinous bite picking up some intensity, along with the orange coming to the fore. Good evergreen bite translates to the mouthfeel, along with some good sweetness and more caramel backbone showing. Not all that complex, but boy does it do what it wants to do and do it well.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2012 (22oz bottle) clearish deep and beautiful orange, soapy tan bubbles on top. Great looking beer. Nose is assertive as hell. Candied orange, caramel, alcohol, agave, ruby red grapefruit and citrus zest. Pretty unique aroma-wise. Taste gets pretty high marks from me with regard to a hoppy Stone beer. Normally too assertive and bitter, this is balanced FAIRLY well by what appears to be a huge malt bill that avoids cloying. Taste has caramel, candied citrus like an orange marmalade, light presence of alcohol is decently hidden, grapefruit and it’s zest with just a tinge of hoppy Esters and pine. Oily body that avoids being cloying but tempts that direction.

On tap at Aces and Ales. Pours a cloudy copper with medium white frothy head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a strong floral hops and pine. Thin mouthfeel with citrus hops and light dry bitter finish. Easy to drink a very impressive IIPA from Stone.

jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 18, 2012
On tap. Pours a clear golden amber with a small white head that settles to ring and leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass . The aroma is pine, citrus, booze, and caramel with sweetness apparent in the aroma. The initial taste is quite sweet with a bit of pine, caramel, and grapefruit. The finish is boozy with a bit of bitterness. Medium body. Low carbonation. A bit too sweet and boozy, but that’s not surprissing with a beer of this size.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours a nice golden orange color with a white head. Aroma is filled with citra hops, notes of sweet mango, papaya, passion fruit, pineapple, grapefruit, orange and tangerine and a sweet malt backbone. The flavor is again super tropical fruit forward, with lots of mango, papaya, passion fruit and pineapple, some orange, mandarin, tangerine, grapefruit and the sweet malt. The body is medium with a dry and velvety mouth feel. Overall an amazing DIPA, almost just as good as my favorite, Expo!
