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

Could have fooled me to think this was a barley wine. The alcohol really kicks you in the shin when you take that first pull. From there it is a ride that is unforgettable. The malt balance with the mosh pit of hops is impeccable. Carbonation seems spot on with about two fingers of head. Nice amber colored body with a thicker mouth feel. Highly recommended. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

neongolden (1231) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2016
(650ml, bottled 06/08/16, from Systembolaget web order) Pours a slightly hazy bright orange colour with a large head of dense cream-coloured foam that fades slowly leaving lace. Aroma of sweet orange, ripe peach, grapefruit peel, resin, pine needles, caramel, slight bread, moderate rather than massive. Flavour is more intense, concentrated caramel and sweet orange, peach and dried apricot up front, rather sweet. Hopping really kicks in from the middle, big resin notes, citrus peels, pine, soapy florals, quite high bitterness clinging to the roof of the mouth. Long resinous aftertaste. Medium-full, almost sticky body with fairly soft carbonation. Hop bomb of the resinous and bitter crystal malt variety, definitely both west coast and old school, but solid stuff.

Samuel214 (555) - SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2016
Flaska från SB. Provning med Nerikes Ölsällskap. Klar, guldig med gräddbeiget, krämigt skum som lämnar rester längs sidorna på glaset. Stor, humlepackad doft av bitter apelsinmarmelad, apelsinskal, färska tallskott, honung, stickig humlekotte, kakdeg och knäck. Stor, oljig och klibbig kropp. Något spritig med fyllig smak av kola, karamell, stor beska och fyllig sötma. Kaxig efter förväntan. Mycket gott.

OminouSC2 (451) - SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2016
Amber color, medium beige head. Sweet fruit aromas like peaches, oranges, dried apricots, caramel with subtle pine hops in the background. Really big taste! Like a hopped up american Barley wine. Sweet taste of ripe fruits, dried fruits and caramel that quickly turns around to a big, round pine hop finish. Great beer!

SeniorZozo (1265) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 18, 2016
TAP @ #1 Bevog Beerfestival Austria. Clear red-brown. Very, very massively hoppy. So resinous it’s almost minty. San Diego style IPA with the hoppiness dialled up. Little bit of spice in the nose. Body is smooth, bitter, not much carbonation, slightly sweet floral finish. Very good.

9/14/16. Bomber. Big boozy and over the top. Drink accordingly. Picking up more pine and tropical than citrus in the nose. Huge hop body rounded out by the ABV. Like Ruination better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
