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

Rich and chewy in every aspect. This brew packs a punch. Although I do think this is over rated, it is still a classic. Deep in color with strong malt and hop aromas. think on the palate with a strict hop element balanced nicely by the fat malt body. Long on the finish with excellent bittering,

Not sure how this compares to ruination, but this was a palate wrecker for sure. Good if you want a beer to just punch you in the face. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle: Pours a clear deep orange bronze with a full-lacing white head. Has a fresh resinous hoppy nose with some sweet light caramel maltiness. Starts with good fullness and rich malty sweetness with assertive resiny piny hop flavor and bitter balance before a slightly drier bittersweet finish. Has a touch too much caramel sugar, but the hop profile is tasty.

Aroma is amazing hoppy and honey with some malts but not as heavy as i thought it would be. Appearance is amber honey with some deep orange notes. Taste is bitter hops and then slammed with citrus orange and light lemon, somewhere in between u get honey. Im unsure where though. Palate is smooth and carbonated with some tingling on the tongue haha. Some oaky notes with more downn the gullet. Purely and simply superb beyond a measure on this app, more than worth the 13 i payed for a pint and a third. Got the last bottle and purely exstatic.

Bomber via SL... This is my kind of brewski. Pours a murkey muddy orange not much head. Leaves a good lacing left on the glass. Nose of orange peels, fruity, pine needles. Taste is juicy, pine needles, fruity, big malt character but still hop forward. Alcohol is warming but hidden well. Carbonation level is average, body is smooth. Nice sipping beer. Overall: Good brew by Stone

A beautiful orange pour, slightly hazy with a fluffy white head. The aroma is absolutely amazing, I want to lay back and soak my body in it. This is tropical fruit overload, grapefruit, peaches, mangoes, and passion fruit, backed up by the slightest hint of malts. The taste, OMFG! A hoppy, bitter masterpiece. Dominated by the hops, it’s piney and earthy, with loads of floral and citrus notes. The alcohol is so well hidden. Medium to full bodied. Thick and oily in all the right ways. Outstanding beer! On my way to pick up more.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 31, 2012
22oz bottle. Clear amber/orange with a small off white head. Aroma of grapefruit peel, tangerine, pine and bubble gum. Flavor is bitter throughout with a light malt sweetness and an alcohol bite. Medium body with a dry, clean, bitter finish. Great beer, wish we would have got this up in Alaska sooner to try is super fresh but oh well.

A hazy orange/yellow colored beer, with a light beige head. The aroma of fruits, a lot of citrus with orange and hops. The taste of fruits citrus with peaches. There are bitter hops with notes of spices.The aftertaste is some sweet with bitter and notes of alcohol.
