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

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 I’ve had it, hard to tell what’s different. All I know Is its awesome like I’d 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 isn’t 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!

From tap at Beachwood BBQ. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small, off white and creamy head. Aroma is fruity and crisp hoppy. Peachy and smooth grapefruity. Ends dry and crisp hoppy. Bitter and smooth fruity finish.

rougeau13 (2119) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Clear amber with a soapy eggshell head and light lacing. Aroma of strong citrus and pine, caramel, grass, and tropical fruit. Taste is sweet and fruity with a touch of spiciness, and a solid bitterness. It seems less bitter than the regular version to me at first, but beyond the finish, the bitterness lasts forever. Medium-full bodied, dry, and a little tongue numbing. Excellent.

Awesome aroma. Very spicy, almost like a rye French oak spice, dense malty body. Not overly bitter

Disclaimer: Stone Ruination is probably my favorite beer overall. That being said, this is just as good. Heavy, heavy grass and resin hops over a somewhat faint, sweet malt background. The alcohol is noticable but by no means overwhelming. This beer definitely lives up to the Stone Ruination name, I’m impressed.
