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

rodenbach99 (3644) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2012
Une grosse bouteille offerte par Marheb et partagée avec Patrick et Boul. La robe est dorée avec une mousse blanche. Le nez est superbe, exubérant avec des mangues, du miel sucré (pas vrai, du miel sucré) et des houblons qui sentent les fruits exotiques. La bouche est mordante, sucrée un peu trop, puissante. Les saveurs sont fruitéses. Il faut y gouter c’est un régal. 8/10

Bottled 650ml (vPBF)
Amber-orange color, small white head. Ryeish, fresh hoppyness. Medium-bodied. Very juicy, fresh hoppyness. Fruity and striking hop bomb. Not much else, but does not need much more.

65 cl bottle @ vPBF
Aroma is rather fruity with hops, some mango and passionfruit. Flavour is very hoppy with much gooseberry bush, exotic fruits, mango, passion and resin. I did not like Ruination IPA but this one was good. Hardcore stuff, a hophead’s dream.

lusikka (7594) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2012
650 ml bottle @ vPBF 2012.
Pours copper colour with a small white head. Aroma is really intense with peach, mango, floral hops and caramel. Flavour is very intense with floral hops, caramel malts, peach, grass and some chewy citric tanginess. Medium bodied, rough mouthfeel and a long, very bitter, floral and sweetish finish. Maybe a tad too much on the bitterness side, too little on the fruitiness, which makes this a bit harsh. Very good nonetheless.

Pours light orange with a foamy head. Massive aroma of fresh exotic fruits, grassy hops, caramel malts and lemon. Taste of massive amounts of fresh fruity hops, grassy notes, exotic fruits, lemon, grapefruit, toffee and caramely malts. Finish is extremely hoppy and malty with sweetish notes and exotic fruits and lemon. Extremely tasty and well balanced imperial IPA. Nom nom.

Pours clear golden-copper color with small head. Aroma of nice floral hops, exotic fruits, grass, mild goose berry bush and some pine needles.

On tap at Beer Authority. Orange gold pour. Rich orange rind and pineapple flavor. Great perfume and citrus sting that lingers for quite a while. Moderate body. Delicious.
