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

Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Citric grapefruity nose with caramelly malt shines through. Near full bodied with well rounded mouthfeel. Very malty with loads of caramel under a thick blanket of grapefruity piney hops. Warming finish with pleasant bitterness. Surprisingly gentle and balanced.

Cloudy amber beer, big pale cream coloured head. Piney, grassy hop nose. Smooth palate with fine carbonation that provides a sting. Good malt base, creamy with a little toffee. Big deep hop in this one! Slightly salty pine, mild skunk, rich citrus marmalade and a whisper of lemon. Creamy malt finish. Somewhat barleywine like but a great beer.
