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

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - SEP 29, 2012
22oz Bottle. The pour was a cloudy burnt orange with an average (1-2 finger) off white frothy head that reduced down to a large puddle and collar of residue, and had good spotty lacing. The aroma was of pine and resin hops, grain malts and a soapy yeast with notes of citrus (grapefruit and orange), caramel and a mild apricot sweetness. The taste was a little sweet and a tad bitter with a hint of caramel and a mild fruity ester at first, and then had a serious hoppy citrus bitterness along with a mild alcohol tinge at the end. The flavor lasted an very long time after the swallow with a nice bitter and mild sweet hoppiness settling in on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was between light and medium in body with a dry yet slightly oily texture and a medium carbonation. Overall a very well put together brew with tons of flavor and a smooth feel, which just complimented the mildly sweet bitterness...

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 (406) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - FEB 21, 2017
Couleur orange, mousse faiblarde, nez sur un concentr de rsineux, un peu fum. En bouche cest super concentr, l encore sur le rsineux, mais aussi sur les agrumes, avec une bonne amertume en fin de bouche. Les notes fruites ressortent un peu plus en se rchauffant, tout comme lalcool. Bref, a tabasse bien.

LazyPyro (918) - 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 its actually fairly well hidden when you consider the ABV. What an awesome brew, really nice.

JPDIPSO (6094) - 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 its from the alcohol or the acidic hops. Finish is citric honey; and linger has pale malts and resin. 6/13

Hopmaestro (1568) - rebro, 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.
