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

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2014
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.

1 pt 6 fl oz bottle from Brewdog online. Deep orange-brown amber colour with a creamy off-white foam head laving lacing. Aroma of malt, toffee, mango, orange rind, hoppy. Taste is malty, caramel with spicy citrus, dried fruits, pine and peppery resiny hop bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry spicy tangy bitter finish. Very drinkable.

LLaurin (322) - Motala, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2016
Pours in amber with small head and a rich hoppy nose. Taste is rich with lots of hops and malty notes. Palate is long and lasting with bitterness. A really good Stone beer.

ALIBALI (787) - Kiel, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2016 Harzofetto. Groß, vollaromatisch und honigelixierlastig. Außergewöhnlich hält hier der schlanke und verspielt süße Körper die Balance mit der ausufernden Waldhoppyness. Das Bier ist eine Ausgeburt der perfekten amerikanischen IIPA Braukunst. Könnte auch ein Arrogant Brew sein. So grossmäulig rund und ausgewogenen aggressiv kommt es daher. In seiner Gänze nicht so experimentell wie zum Beispiel die Hopfenfeger von den AMAGER Jungs, dafür aber bis zum letzten Schluck auf den Punkt. Hops, Hops und nochmal Hops. FETT!!!! 0,66l Bottle vom GETRÄNKE FEINKOSTER in der Boxhagener. 12 Euronen und JEDEN Cent wert.

Frothmeister (733) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2016
1 pt 6oz bottle. Pours clear, and the colour of honey with a thin creme coloured head. Smells great. Grapefruit, peach, passion fruit, fresh pineapple, Lyle’s Golden Syrup, with some faint resinous notes hiding underneath. Taste wise, lighter on the fruit forward side of things but there is a faint hint of grapefruit, white grape and pineapple underneath some very apparent booziness, followed by mineral heavy hopping that heads in to very similar flavours with heavier caramel notes ending with a resinous bitterness. It’s a little underwhelming for the price, and I don’t think I would buy it again because of that, but it’s definitely decent.
