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

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.

Bomber from Tops. Big nose of citrus & pine hops, w/ some sweet alcohol. Flavors of bitter orange pith, grapefruit, candied lime peel, fresh cut grass, pine. A good amount of alcohol burn towards the end, but I think it blends well w/ the hop bitterness. Some malt flavors in there, but definitely a hop bomb. Which is exactly what I expect from an anniversary IIPA Stone. Great!

Bottle from Rick’s in Alexandria. Served in a Stone goblet. Pours a moderate golden color with a nice white head. The nose is an overload of citrus hops and a bit of pine. From there, it goes downhill. The flavor is indeed quite hoppy and fairly nice, but it’s also fairly boozy, which is an unpleasant sensation when combined with the extreme bitterness. Definite heat there. Not very drinkable.

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.

VsXsV (2657) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2012
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.
