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

Sweet nutty aroma with a bit of funk, almost like brussels sprouts. Pours clear orange with a thin white head. Smooth flavor with a bitter finish, definitely doesn’t seem like it’s a 10.8% beer!

Again and again Stone produces killer IPAs and I wonder a lot of times if I rate them lower cause I’m comparing to other stones. In the mean time the kids they dance and shake their bones.

Man! Huge ipa. Pours clear gold with lots of frothy head and lacing. Nose is a pine and grapefruit punch in the face. Flavours of big citrus fruit, lots of pine and grapefruit. Taste big bitter light/med sweet. Full body with an agressive bitter finish that lasts and lots of carbonation.

Woah. This bottle had some age on it and was still a powerhouse. In fact, the mellowing and blending that occurred may have made it better. Earthy hop aroma. Caramel color. Weighty palate with complimenting carbonation. Strong hoppy punch up front that lingers. Malt backbone is a great balance that also hid the alcohol well. Sharp hoppy finish. Definitely a palate wrecker.
