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

ACHops (1476) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2014 On tap @ Urban Family Public House. Pours medium pale copper with minimal head. Aroma is big pine hops. Taste is more of the same: sticky grapefruit hops, thick caramel body, bitter piney finish. I remember my first Ruination and how it was bigger than anything Id had before. At 7.7%, that was lost in the fray over the past few years. Love to see Stone step up and show everyone that they can do a DIPA better than anyone else. What would it take for this to become a permanent fixture in the lineup? Revisiting 2014 version, 2 years later to the day... Amazing rich sweet malt aroma with huge citrus, floral, and pine hop notes. Taste as originally noted above remains true. Extremely rich, but so well balanced that it tastes well below the 10.8%. Dont believe Ive had a DIPA any better than this - the gold standard. THANK YOU STONE FOR LISTENING AND MAKING THIS AN ANNUAL RELEASE! :)

ianwelby (1215) - SCOTLAND - DEC 20, 2016
Hazy orange beer, thick white head. Strong blend of grassy hop, caramel, rye and tropical fruit in the aroma. Taste has the same qualities. Tangy-sweet fruit up front, gets a bit sourer as you go along, a sort of rich, caramel-sweet hint to stop it being overly bitter and sour. Lasting hoppiness, sourness at the back of the tongue as well as being a bit airy and floral. Delicious.

Everything glorious about Ruination amped up to 11! A Stone release as dank as ever with bold and juiced citrus charged up with a following fresh cut pine. The heavy hitting hops balanced expertly by a huge malt bill. A true standard setting brew for the IPA style.

Iznogud (3075) - CROATIA - DEC 7, 2016
On tap at Bevog Who Cares Festival, 2016. Pours hazy deep orange to amber with white head. Fruity, hoppy, grapefruit, citrus, pine, malty, caramel, some sweetness. Resinous. Lasting bitter finish. Medium+ bodied. Alcohol well hidden. Probably not the freshest one, but still good.

daje (4209) - NORWAY - NOV 29, 2016
On tap at Brewdog Gteborg, august 3rd 2016. Hazy orange body with a white head. Aroma is intense piney and fruity, grapefruit, peach and resin. Taste is bittersweet, yet crisp and dry, with juicy fruits and a resiny punch in the face towards the end. Really delicious and hoppy. Usually Im not a fan of ipas this strong, they tend to get sweet, sticky and grassy, but this one doesnt suffer from that, its just a great hoppy and fruity ipa with more of it all.
