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

On tap at Stone Company Store in Oceanside. Aroma of citrus, sweet malt, hop resin and rum cake. Deep gold color with fading white head. Flavor starts sweet with undertones of earth and grass. Bitterness immediately comes in and lasts with grapefruit citrus and orange peel. Medium bodied. Personally Ilike Ruination better, this is impressive, ruinous at that. I prefer my DIPAs with an exceptional amount of balance and bright, crisp peppery finish. Leans a little sweet.

22 oz Bomber. Tasted on 9/19/14. Bottle from Total Wine Lewisville, TX. This beer has a similar aroma to Ruination but not quite as sweet on the nose. The taste was great with a ton of hop bitterness followed by a piney taste. The finsish was great & very dry for the ABV. Overall very nice.

Indra (2619) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - SEP 18, 2014
22oz. bottle. Supremely hoppy aroma, bursting with citrus fruit, pine, floral and peppery spice tones, along with some faint peppery alcohol and mildly toasty, sweet maltiness in the background. Gently hazy light-medium amber in color with a lasting, fine head and detailed lacing. Flavor profile is intensely hop-focused, with plenty of bitter, piney, citric hop, grapefruit, alcohol, some faint countering malt sweetness in the background here as well. Finish is as hoppy as any beer Ive had to date. Resinous, warming and moderately effervescent on the palate, absolutely huge in body and feel. This should be way overboard, but manages to remain satisfying and tasty due to its hefty balance and intense hop flavor.

Narnad (1462) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Pours a clean copper color with a very dense, 1-inch, creamy, off-white head with tremendous staying power. Aroma hits your nose as soon as you pour it. Strong notes of orange citrus and pineapple with other light tropical fruit notes and a light grainy finish. Flavor has a punch of pineapple at the start and moves into a modest citrus and malty sweetness finish. Body is heavy with some fine carbonation that adds a slight creamy feeling. The alcohol is very well hidden behind the sweet hoppy flavors. Overall a good hoppy beer.

Dal9000 (185) - Ohio, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Pours copper with a 2 cm off white head. Hint of citrus hops, pine hops that vary in intensity with time. The hops linger on the tongue for many many minutes after swallowing. Not overpowering until after finishing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

DSG (5829) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Slightly hazy deep golden with an off-white head. Aroma of hops - piney, resinous, with a light weedy note and some malt in background. Flavor starts malty and sweet, biscuity and a bit caramelly, continues with piney and resinous hops and a bitter finish. Rounded mouthfeel, a bit oily. Good.

Pours very hazy orange with lots of foamy white head. Aroma is heavy on the citrus and pine, very nice. Nice heavy malty backbone of caramel and toffee. On the hop side it is pretty bitter with alot of pine and citrus and also a little tropical fruit / melon. Yum.

Pours hazy orange with a white creamy head. Aroma of pine, caramel, and maple. Grapefruit and pine flavor with maple sweetness and a sharp hop bite at the end. Blissful.

kkleu357 (296) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Hazy orange body with a big white fluffy head. Slightly old at 3 months, but hoping it is still good. Huge malty earth aroma. Some pine smell. Very smooth. I do wonder if the hops have tapered off some because it is more malty and less hoppy than I thought itd be, but still tastes great. Good amount of sweetness, but still quite bitter. My guess fresh this is great. Today I think it is very good.
