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

Tstandiford (10) - Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2013
A big in-your-face beer Opens up with a heavy malt flavor, followed by bitter hops. This beer was shockingly heavy to me. It's a sipping beer, that makes your mouth a little sticky. I would not recommend drinking this on a hot day, instead try it with something ultra sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tightslice (894) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Location: Bottle from Safeway in Redwood City, CA
Aroma: Very piney, medicinal candy... almost pine sol as it warms
Taste: Taste is rich marmalade, medicinal maltiness, nasal burn and then mellow warming in the chest
Overall: Not my favorite thing from Stone...the aroma here is way too astringent / chemical cleaner. The flavor is thick and marmalade-y...but the chemical notes are surprising. Could work as a VapoRub remedy.

explosivedog (195) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 20, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2016 On tap at Erzbierschof. Aroma is all bitter caramel. Flavour has big caramel and biscuit notes, with a little fruitiness (maybe some apple?) before the big bitter finale. Huge flavour.

Maris (1368) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2016
From a 650ml bottle on 19/8/2016. Pours a clear deep golden with a small to medium head. For something so big, the aroma is pretty subdued, though I am suffering a bit of a cold at the moment. There’s some caramel and light earthy, fruity hops, but it’s all quite subtle, Take a sip and it’s an entirely different story. There is a real intensity and length to it that makes itself known immediately. There’s a big malt presence (caramel and biscuit), some pronounced sweet citrus, tropical and stone fruit sweetness, which is bludgeoned by a massive, camphorous, resiny, herbal, tongue coating bitterness which somehow manages to convince you you’re drinking something even stronger than 10.8%. This is a very dry, almost mediciinal experience - a chewy, oily sipper, which is not an easy quaffer. Challenging and flavour packed, yet a little difficult to truly fall in love with. Definitely a memorable experience none the less.

cobaink2 (416) - seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle from beer junction. Pretty malty and at less than 50 days it seems as if it it turning to more of a barleywine. It’s a great concise IPA. But more malt than hops.

King_Alex_II (1181) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 18, 2016
Clear amber color with foam layer. Hop liquor nose. Creamy thickish mouth feeling with a lot of intense earth hops and a heavy character. Dry and bitter hoppy aftertaste.

anstei (1072) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - AUG 17, 2016
Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. The forest floor again. This time even more extreme and really well balanced. Palate lasts and tastes finally. Nice.

mkel07 (5102) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2016
On tap at Brewhouse Brisbane 030816. This is such a big beer in every way and it is so intense that it takes a while to get through it. The best way to describe this beer is chewy, it is almost like a meal in a glass. Hops dominate everything about this beer and it is not a beer that you can drink quickly or drink a lot of.
