Dark gold/orange pour with a thick white head. Aroma of apricot, cotton candy, and burned sugar. Very strong, sweet aroma. Silky on the palate, a rush of sweetness and stone fruit. Beautifully balanced bitter on the sweet, any less bitter and this would be undrinkable. A bit of piney, but balanced and delicious. Bitter continues on the finish, alcohol is nicely blended. This one is special. Would I drink again? Yes Yes. Would I order again? Definitely. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Growler from The Wink. Poured a clear orange, just a touch on the dark side, with a nice compact head. Aroma was a blast of tropical fruit hops and some sweet malt. Flavor is a match. Very full mouth feel, big malt sweetness and an almost oily character. Hops provide a ton of bitterness to balance. My mind thinks of baked mangoes. I liked this quite a bit, but think I prefer the original Ruination. But happy to get to try it since I somehow totally missed it the first time around. frank0830 (70) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Leave it to Stone to brew a great ipa with lots of Simcoe hops and make it worth something! Pours a beautiful copper color with lots of fruity notes on the nose. Some bread and biscuit notes on the palate. Beautiful lacing as always with a Stone beer. Well done.

The nose is an amazing boquet of dank hop probably simcoe and centenial. The mouthfeel is thick but not chewy like you might think. The hops definitely stand out, even against such a beat of a grain bill. The hop flavor lingers on the palate aftertaste along with a bit of a bitter twinge.

Think I liked this more the last two years. Resin and slight citrus. Clear copper with ivory head. High bitterness and moderate citrus. Great yeast presence in mouthfeel.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 6/9/2014. Pours crystal clear golden orange color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate light caramel malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate light caramel malt sweetness; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth, fairly sticky/crisp, and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding DIPA. All around awesome complexity of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate light caramel malt sweetness; and very smooth and fairly crisp to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering. MajorBuzz (18) - Munster, Indiana, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Medium off-white head. Beautiful clear amber color with small bubbles rising to the heavens. Resiny pine citrus aroma. Pine, citrus taste that blesses the tongue with a grapefruit offering. Finishes bitter & way too quick, leaving you wanting more. fitwitchik (433) - Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Poured from a bomber into a Stone Brewery tall goblet a golden red with a beige head.
Aroma is hopped sweetness. *sigh" my hearts skips a beat when I grab the scent of such an excellent DIPA
Flavor is heavily hopped with caramels. Thick rich flavor like so few others.
This brew is sought each time it is released and in the throng will be me. Panzuriel (2429) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Stone’s Ruin Ten IPA is a deep copper amber crystal clear pour. The head is a firm layer of white bubbles. Nose is strong with crisp evergreen hops in spades. Taste is initially sweet, with a touch of honey, which resolves into strong evergreen hops halfway through and then all the way through the aftertaste. the body is silky and more than a touch lively. A very nice IPA with a boatload of evergreen hops. exactly what i want out of a Strong IPA. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Pours a clear amber color with white head. Floral notes, pine, citrus, and grapefruits on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more piney goodness.
