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

Great Beer. I had high expectations for this beer and it met or exceeded all of them easily. It is a very well balanced brew that has the nice bitter noted that are synonymous with the Ruination brand.

600ml bottle served in a snifter glass. Pours a slightly cloudy orange to amber color forming a medium, creamy and solid beige head with medium retention and lots of molasses lacings formed and left in the glass. Nose of very sweet, fruity and flowery. Strong notes of caramel and pine. Grapefruit and honey. Slightly sweet upfront taste too. Again, Strong notes of caramel and grapefruit. Strong bitterness. Very grassy bittersweet balance. Heavy and molasses body. Medium carbonation. Caramel, grapefruit and pine in the aftertaste. Excellent IIPA. Masterpiece.

Gift bomber. Quiet pour with modest carbonation and a reserved aroma of citrus and pine. The beer is a golden orange colour with a white head and good lace. The taste is smooth and malty sweet with notes of caramel and hop dryness expanding into the middle. Hops are aggressive in the finish with hints of grapefruit and pine resin. Good mouthfeel throughout and a long warming alcohol glow at the very end. Good!

AssKicker (458) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - FEB 21, 2017
Couleur orangée, mousse faiblarde, nez sur un concentré de résineux, un peu fumé. En bouche c’est super concentré, là encore sur le résineux, mais aussi sur les agrumes, avec une bonne amertume en fin de bouche. Les notes fruitées ressortent un peu plus en se réchauffant, tout comme l’alcool. Bref, ça tabasse bien.

4.4
LazyPyro (1109) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2017
650ml bottle. Pours a clear orange colour with a big frothy off-white head. Aroma of resin, pine, fruity, grapefruit, marmalade, malty, caramel, spicy, the taste is exactly all that too. Some sweetness with a lasting bitter finish. Mouthfeel is smooth. Alcohol has a warming feeling but it’s actually fairly well hidden when you consider the ABV. What an awesome brew, really nice.

3.9
JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - FEB 6, 2017
Deep golden color with a moderate, dissipating canvas colored head. Huge aromas of orange citrus. Light pine, caramel, circus peanuts, grapefruit and toffee meander about in the nose as well. Full feel, with a light zip. Sweet pear and toasted malt in the front. Hops completely take over with citrus, pine and resin. A light burn on the tongue, not sure if it’s from the alcohol or the acidic hops. Finish is citric honey; and linger has pale malts and resin. 6/13

4.1
Hopmaestro (1625) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2017
Aroma is piney and intense. Grapefruit, peach sweetness and resin. Taste is a lot of grapefruit and spruce coated in resin. Slight licorice feelings. A fair share of sweetness as well, almost peachy that undermines the bitterness. Hint of alcohol.

4.2
Lilja (3140) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2017
Flaska från SB. En riktigt maffig stor IIPA som är riktigt rejält humlat men med en jättekropp som matchar humlen perfekt och gör detta extrema öl riktigt välbalanserat. Fina söta smaker av honung och syltig citrusmarmelad möter kådig humle fint. Riktigt riktigt gott. Tack Daniel!

Bomber. Traditional Stone taste and aroma. Overall, a wonderful IPA that I would definitely drink again!
