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

mikesaum (711) - Newark, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2012
This is an awesome DIPA. Pours an amber/orange color with a thin off white head, looks syrupy as well. Aroma is quite tropical, mangoes and peaches, cat urine, but in that good ipa way,and a good caramel malt backbone. Taste at first is mostly sweet malt and orange peel, very hoppy upfront but it doesn’t linger at first. But as the beer warms the bitterness tends to linger a bit more but the overall taste is still caramel malt and orange.

Dark orange color with a white head. The aroma is very citrusy, piney, and floral. The flavor is not very bitter but very smooth and creamy. I’m getting some orange flavored whipped cream, lemons, and pine. Some resin is present. This is unique but nice.

IndianaRed (4774) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 21, 2017
OnTap hazy deep copper color with a thin fine lasting light beige head. Deep floral citrus hop flavors. Lots of orange and tangerine. Big caramel malt body and a long lingering bitterness. Smooth heavy and good fruity hopness.

colui72 (1053) - HONG KONG - JUL 17, 2017
Pours deep golden/amber, with a medium white head and not much lacing. Fantastic aroma of orange peel, vanilla and mango. Tastes quite bitter but very rich and complex, with caramel, ale malts, orange peel, mango, mandarin and strong vanilla. Tasty and easy to drink, besides the over 10% ABV, medium body, smooth, creamy and softly carbonated, bitter finish, with lot of orange peel after taste (and burps, burps are definitely pure orange peel!). Excellency in a bottle!

jmgreenuk (9527) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 15, 2017
Tap at Craffity, Chiang Mai. Poured a hazy medium amber with a short-lived frothy white head. The aroma is malt, big tropical fruit citrus, resin hop, alcohol bitter. The flavour is moderate sweet with a sweet orange peel citrus, woody, resin hop, warm burning alcohol bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

HogTownHarry (7010) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2017
November 29, 2013 - with blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs & mabel - bomber. Hazy light amber with a smallish white bubbly head. "Smells like Stone" - resin, floral, sweet yet dry, alcohol for sure - quite a lot of pineapple. Taste follows, but add citrus and citrus zest, strong alcohol. Average body and carbonation, astringent, medium long fruity/bitter finish, never OTT but big enough ... I’d have it again.

4.3
chadski (145) - California, USA - JUL 9, 2017
One of my favorites. Slight lack of head retention but other than that, near perfect. Coppery color with caramel and molasses flavor balanced by hop bitterness. Thick and full-bodied.

Foxbush (2039) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2017 22 oz bottle from Wegmans in Short Pump, VA The ale poured a clear amber color with a huge frothy off white head. Some lacing. The aroma of tropical fruit and some sugary notes. The taste is clean with strawberries and citrus bitterness. the ale has a medium body with average carbonation. This is a BIG IPA. Ten percent maybe my outer limits for beer ABV. Despite massive hop flavor, bitterness is smooth, and the alcohol’s deftly hidden. I corked the bottle to drink two days later. The Triple IPA poured a nice foamy head and same great taste. This a quality beer.
