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 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

Bomber from Total Wine in Dallas. Pours clear orange with a white head. Aromas of piney hops, loads of citrus, and sweet malts. Flavors pine, orange and grapefruit, high amount of hop bitterness, and tons of sweet malt. Even with all the hops the malt profile is almost to much.

So thrilled to get my hands on a bottle of this since Ruination is my top rated brew. Poured from a bomber that was chilled in a cooler while driven straight from CA to OK. I also poured a "regular" Ruination so I could A/B them. Pours a cloudy golden orange, a hue I would paint my walls. Obviously way more hops in the dry hop process. Very complex, very smooth, very awesome...however, believe it or not, I prefer the regular Ruination by a sliver of a hair. I do like the ABV and IBU of the 10th Anni, but lucky for me the normal Ruination wins in this A/B test. That said, Iím thrilled to be enjoying the 10th Anni...itís like they turned up the intensity level on this from the Ruination. Well done Stone, well done.

Bomber. Wonderful rich, hoppy aroma with plenty of heat. Hazy orange with a frothy off white head. Initial mouthfeel is hot (high alcohol). Without having this side by side with the regular Ruination, and having been awhile since Iíve had it, hard to tell whatís different. All I know Is its awesome like Iíd expect from Stone.

RoyalFlushing (324) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle poured a dark honey with a medium tan head and excellent lacing. Enormous aroma of citrus zest with hints of apricot, grapefruit, pine, and coriander that tempts you take the first sip. Taste is hop forward with a huge mouthfeel of palatable bitterness balanced by citrus and a hint of honey on the finish. Wonderfully drinkable despite the ABV with clear improvements that put this on a different level than the traditional Ruination.

Poured a dark hazy gold color. Great aroma mostly citrus and grapefruit. Not bitter, very sweet with a dry finish. Big body for a DIPA with great carbonation. After drinking the bottle your pallet will be worn out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma on this is incredible. Very aggressive; pungent grapefruit, mango, papaya, and guava. Quite tropical. Moderate evergreen. Juicy. The flavor is assertive as well, with a lingering alcohol heat. Flavor isnít as appealing. More pine, less fruit. This one is meant to rip the taste buds right off of your tongue, or make them fall out. Mission accomplished!
