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

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2014 Bottle: Enjoyed fresh. Thanks, Kevin! Burnt, stoplight amber color with sharp clarity; thin-bubbled, creamy, off-white cap grows thick & settles slowly, leaving nice lacing behind. Aroma is largely citric hops, tropical undertones, grapefruit, pineapple, white-pepper covered citrus peels, dank hops, florals, & light herbaceous notes. As soon as this warms up (even a little) the malt presence grows exponentially, introducing heavily sweet & sticky notes of caramel, toffee, & unattenuated sugar. The taste follows the same logic... The first five or six sips are nice; largely hoppy, bitter citrus, candied grapefruit peels, orange zest, dank & wet hops, lupulin oil... Then the sweetness builds up like a train out of control. Caramel & toffee is in great abundance with a huge, sticky, residual sweetness that’s just really off-putting in a DIPA. Finish of abrasively sweet malts & leftover hop resin. The first few sips had promise, but this one is just too sweet for me. Much prefer Ruination.

delnoche (480) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - SEP 4, 2015
1pt 6fl oz bottle poured into a pint glass. A nice golden amber with a massive amount of offwhite creamy head. Aroma is a mouthwatering hops garden. Flavor is a torrential blast of resiny hops. Slight burn reveals the high alcohol content. Mouth is left very sticky. Long bitter finish. Summation: wow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

natejgood (431) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - SEP 4, 2015
Nice rich golden color. Fairly clean with almost no bubbles rising from the bottom. Small head, but it hangs around. Looks still and strong. Very strong hop aroma. Thick, hoppy and piney with some sweet molasses in the background. Very creamy and smooth in the mouth and not a hint of alcohol - not bad for a beer at over 10% ABV. Flavor is a bit of a mystery on this one. The flavor is relatively strong but by no means overpowering. Smooth malt but not terribly hoppy. Maybe not a beer I would want to drink every day, but pretty impressive for a triple IPA. Very drinkable, smooth in the mouth and no alcohol flavor.

weordie (376) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2015
Pours copper with a decent white head. Loads of citrus and tropical fruits in the aroma. Wow, that taste!! A malt start is balanced by a citrus middle and an intensely bitter finish. This is tremendous.

HoppyScallywag (135) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2015
Hard bite on this hoppy goodness. Has an acidic, hoppy slam that intensifies on the palate to the point that it almost leaves your tongue dry. I dig it for sure ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Habanero (3315) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2015
Bottled. Pours clear deep golden with an average, lacing of-white head. Aroma of citrus, peach, pineapple, pine and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and solid bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. An excellent DIPA. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

GenkiGonzo (670) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 31, 2015
Draught at Antenna America. Slightly off-white head on top of a deep orange body. Fruity citrus hop aroma. Big alcohol, big hops...big yes!

Lowandslow1972 (12) - Carlsbad, California, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Very strong brew. Alcohol present but hops killed it. Mango and peach hop pines and a bitterness that evened out the strong character. Not for the timid. Excellent.

jamestulloch (2221) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Clear golden/amber body with a thin off-white head. Steady carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of mango, pine, grapefruit, orange, menthol and honey. Flavour of honeyed malts, pine, orange and resin. Bitter, spicy finish. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Very easy drinking for the strength.

Excellent beer. Copper color, strong sweet and hippy aroma. Sweet at first, then bitter finish that lingers. Not a lot of carbonation.
