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

22 FL OZ ($7.99) absolutely amazing beer. a true gem found on your local shelves. get this seasonal before its gone. WOW 10.8% ABV and it drinks like an easy going lager. Taste is fruity and flavorful hops. its listed at IBU:100 but its not nearly that bitter its just soo smooth. I really think stone is making some very good beers and they are offering these great brews at a very good price. Yes buy this you will be happy you did

Masses of pine resin and citrus almost completely cover the big malt nose. The bright golden amber color belies the big bold flavors. The head is white and fairly thin. Sweet maltiness and strong bitterness dominate the taste buds. The body starts with a medium feel but fills the mouth quickly with a creamy character. The sharp grapefruit catches up quickly and then dominates. The malt lingers after the citrus fades leaving a bitter sweet finish which holds just long enough. This is the 2014 release of Ruin Ten and is just as good as I remember in 12 and 13. This beer will score well with the hopheads and the Stone fanboys and quite rightly. Awesome IPA

Pours a nice clean orange with a thin bubbly head. Smells like a hop wrecking ball. Its got a big hop flavor thats taste predominantly orange but its not over the top. Id like it better if it was a bit smoother and with this ipa i think they could have done that without compromising the beer that they had crafted. On the whole a decent ipa.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 2014 release: A: nice copper amber clear beer with white head that sticks well for abv. S: grapefruit, ripe fruits, pear, garlic/onion, pine T: super bitter/boozy, I think Im starting to realize high abv can take something away from M: bitter as hell, alc ever present, aftertaste grapefruit Overall: not as good as last years, or my palate is evolving these beers, also super high IBU can be distracting. That aside, pine, grapefruit, citrus zest, slight dankness, garlic/onion 2013 release: A - Beer is crystal clear orange/amber color w/ 3 fingers of white head that sticks around forever, the lacing is good. S - Wow. Grapefruit, orange/lemon/lime zest, pineapple, a little bit of garlic but in a good way. Piney hops all around. T - Super piney hops with slight hints of garlic. Huge grapefruit, citrus zest, pineapple, lots of bitterness. Its like Ruination on steroids. M - Light-medium mouthfeel. Bitter aftertaste. Alcohol well hidden. Nice bite from the hops though. O - One hell of an amazing beer. "A stage dive into a mosh pit of hops" indeed.

Tap. Brace yourself! Pours a deep orange with a white head. Nose is bread, caramel and of course hops. Taste is fruit with a hop backbone. Sweet for a DIPA.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2014 Bottle: Enjoyed fresh. Thanks, Kevin! Burnt, stoplight amber color with sharp clarity; thin-bubbled, creamy, off-white cap grows thick & settles slowly, leaving nice lacing behind. Aroma is largely citric hops, tropical undertones, grapefruit, pineapple, white-pepper covered citrus peels, dank hops, florals, & light herbaceous notes. As soon as this warms up (even a little) the malt presence grows exponentially, introducing heavily sweet & sticky notes of caramel, toffee, & unattenuated sugar. The taste follows the same logic... The first five or six sips are nice; largely hoppy, bitter citrus, candied grapefruit peels, orange zest, dank & wet hops, lupulin oil... Then the sweetness builds up like a train out of control. Caramel & toffee is in great abundance with a huge, sticky, residual sweetness thats just really off-putting in a DIPA. Finish of abrasively sweet malts & leftover hop resin. The first few sips had promise, but this one is just too sweet for me. Much prefer Ruination.

Pours amber to copper with one finger of off white head. Nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is lots of pine and grapefruit with some sweet maltiness. Flavor is pretty bitter yet not harsh. Well balanced with the malty sweetness. Medium bodied. Some alcohol burn. Finishes pretty dry. Nice beer.

on tap at the berlinerbierfest 2013 at the very popular american stall. hazy amber with a lingering white head; loads of grapefruit and pine in the aroma; ridiculously bitter after trying a few german pilses and helleses; plenty of grapefruit and caramel brittle; finishes clean. well made but not exactly my thing

Resin hop aroma with a sweet pine smell. Strong sweet beginning thats gets moderately bitter quickly. Bitter lasts until the finish then gets a sharp finish.
