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 ďA Liquid Poem to the Glory of the Hop,Ē 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

Poured from a 22oz bottle. Absolutely beautiful, deep honey/amber with a small white head. Aroma is, as expected, citrus and pine, but not as intense for such a hoppy brew. Slightly sticky, light lacing that eventually slides off. Definitely not for those who donít like bitter, but for those of us who do itís a treat as itís quite heavy on that point. Slight alcohol taste comes through, but does not detract. Full body and lively on the palate with a long, bitter finish. Stone Brewery delivered a real treat with this one.

Hard bite on this hoppy goodness. Has an acidic, hoppy slam that intensifies on the palate to the point that it almost leaves your tongue dry. I dig it for sure ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Habanero (3312) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2015
Bottled. Pours clear deep golden with an average, lacing of-white head. Aroma of citrus, peach, pineapple, pine and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and solid bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. An excellent DIPA. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

GenkiGonzo (664) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 31, 2015
Draught at Antenna America. Slightly off-white head on top of a deep orange body. Fruity citrus hop aroma. Big alcohol, big hops...big yes!

Lowandslow1972 (12) - Carlsbad, California, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Very strong brew. Alcohol present but hops killed it. Mango and peach hop pines and a bitterness that evened out the strong character. Not for the timid. Excellent.

jamestulloch (2221) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Clear golden/amber body with a thin off-white head. Steady carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of mango, pine, grapefruit, orange, menthol and honey. Flavour of honeyed malts, pine, orange and resin. Bitter, spicy finish. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Very easy drinking for the strength.

AnokaBrewer (100) - Anoka, Minnesota, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Excellent beer. Copper color, strong sweet and hippy aroma. Sweet at first, then bitter finish that lingers. Not a lot of carbonation.

Davros (2408) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2015
Pours vibrant amber, fading head. Nose shows lashings of clean malt alongside resinous and piny hops. Similar falvours. Cloyingly malty with some spicy, piny and resinous hops.

wvhoran (451) - Tasmania, - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle. Rather dark amber colour with a large white. Dense aroma with caramel, grass, herbal, fruitiness. The flavour is sweet, toffee, with resinous and oily character, extreme hopping, very bitter. A strong body and overall a highly enjoyable beer.

Beergaard (236) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2015
Bitter and citric with a strong and sweet malt backbone. Not the most interesting Stone beer if you ask me.

jc1762 (255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2015
Poured into a teku showing cloudy orange amber with moderate filtration and a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows moderately intense notes of pineapple, cannabis, and pine with a hefty malty background. The palate is moderately carbonated and medium bodied. Flavors of sweet malt and very light pineapple. The finish shows the distinct cutting IPA bitterness. Lightens up on the linger to showcase more of the malts and slightly fruitier flavors.
