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

I can’t say enough good things about the quality of this beer. It lives by its name and ruins your palette. Doing a side by side with this and your standard Ruination is a bad idea as it’ll ruin Ruination for you. This one has a smooth malt back end that hides its alcohol so well.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2013 Bottle. Almost clear amber with medium off-white head. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruit, metallic hops, caramel, bit booze and grass. Taste is dry and medium to high bitter with notes of citrus and metal. Medium with medium carbonation. Pretty decent but too metallic.

A - Pours a very hazy golden orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing. S - Aroma is full of grapefruit, peach, tropical, and citrus hops with some pine hops, caramel malts, and a bit of biscuit. T - Starts off with a mix of grapefruit, apricot, tropical and citrus hops with lots of bitterness and some sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, lots of resiny pine hop and more bitterness comes through with a bit of biscuity malt. The finish is a mix of grapefruit and pine hops with a good amount of bitterness and a bit of sweet caramel malts. M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and bitter finish. D - Very drinkable. Really nice strong hop profile with tons of bitterness. Very tasty.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bomber, to be enjoyed by 08.23.12. Pours clear dark copper and orange, tons of cascading bubbles, with a 2-finger creamy beige head. Light lacing. Aromas of sweet, dank hops; pineapple, spruce, orange peel, pine, and sugar, as well as tropical fruits: papaya, guava, and mango. The flavor is sweet papaya, peach, and mango, filled with dank and overripe fruit, with some alcohol heat and salty citrus peel. This moves to bitter pine and citrus pith and lingering tropical fruit. Slick, creamy, full-bodied mouthfeel, with some alcohol heat and a dry finish. Really well done. [1094]

Striking fruit and hoppy aroma along with bright orange color and medium head. Fell in love from the first sip. Complex tropical fruit taste and smell. Bitterness is balanced well with the satisfaction from the other characteristics. Best beer I had so far.

cbfobes (2596) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Poured from 22oz bomber, pours a clear copper with a thick white head and lacing through out the entire glass, the aroma is full of tropical fruit, citrus and and floral notes as well, my wife was sitting 30 ft away from me and she could easily smell it, the flavor has an awesome guava and grapefruit front end with a bitter finish that really brings it all together, very smooth, the 10% is not there, very dangerous to just slam this down and crack open another bottle without even thinking twice about it. I wish I could buy this in Wisconsin, because I would buy a lot of it.

KyotoLefty (6830) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 23, 2012
Bottled. Metallic and citrus hop nose, tropical fruits. Big honey malts and citrus fruit flavor. Hop bitterness is huge, and so is the sweetness. A bit of alcohol there too. Burning and somewhat cloying. Not up to the usual standard, I suppose.

22oz bomber poured into a tulip. Rating #900. Pours a lightly hazy burnt orange with about a finger of white head. Aroma is mostly tropical. Citrus fruits with grapefruit and orange. A little caramel also. Taste is heavily bitter. Citrus and pine with caramel and a good bit of warming alcohol. Full bodied with a thick yet slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall, awesome. I could drink this every day.
