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

Bottle. Damn this is amazing. Aroma blows you away. Loaded with floral, citrus hops. Palate is nice and flavor is solid. Hop/alcohol strong. One of the IIPA's I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dalekliz (917) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber with a small white bubbly head. Aroma of citrus hops, orange zest, a bit of pine, sugar, malt. Huge bitter taste, of tart citrus hops, pine trees, malt, and a hint of candied orange peel. Lingering crisp bitterness. Great IIPA.

BazookaJoe (274) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Pours golden orange with a nice fluffy white head. A large floral bouquet leads to a very bitter first sip. Finishes with notes of grapefruit and citrus. The hops linger and stick to your tongue well after you finish a drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Draft at Gingerman. Pours clear amber with thick off-white head. Terrific lacing. Aroma is full of grapefruit, pine resin and grassy hops. Taste is slightly boozy in the forefront, but moves to grassy, floral hops with a touch of sweeter caramel malts. Bitterness and alcohol warmth linger in the finish.

tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle. Bright gold pour, white head. Little retention/some lace. Aroma of grass, citrus, pine hop, cracker/caramel malt. Taste is bitter, aggressive citrus/pine, caramel malt. Palate is soft, oily, a bit sticky, bitter finish.

mezr (116) - California, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Poured from a 22oz bottle. Absolutely beautiful, deep honey/amber with a small white head. Aroma is, as expected, citrus and pine, but not as intense for such a hoppy brew. Slightly sticky, light lacing that eventually slides off. Definitely not for those who dont like bitter, but for those of us who do its a treat as its quite heavy on that point. Slight alcohol taste comes through, but does not detract. Full body and lively on the palate with a long, bitter finish. Stone Brewery delivered a real treat with this one.

On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. Kinda as expected - hoppy, piney, a nite bitter bite. Surprisingly easy to drink seeing how strong it is. Has a decent sweetness that I wasnt expecting, a little bit of honey-ish flavor. I dont recall Ruination having that same sweetness.
