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

Pours an ambery orange color with an off white head. Huge hop nose and flavors. I get pine and pine needle. Maybe some pine tar! Mmmmmmm. Bit of citrusy fruits such as a grapefruit or orange. But mostly just delicious hops. I like this one.

JStax (6006) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2013
22 ounce bottle. Poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a translucent copper with a substantial orange tinged head of foam. The aroma has nice grapefruit, cotton candy, spruce tips, and mango character. Tastes a little brash. Definitely a bitter sumbitch. Sticky sweet mouthfeel about mid palate that moves to a briny warming finish.

jbruner (4564) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Pours a clear golden orange on tap with thin white head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is heavy on the hops, citrus and pine mixture of the the cs, slight pale malt back. Taste is an awesome hop bomb, nice and bitter pine, slight malty middle, then it falls to boozy hops. Solid fucking beer.

Finhead (1714) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Clear, copper pour with a white head. Light citrus and florals with a caramel backbone. It has a medium body with somewhat thick, oily mouthfeel and average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet for a second or two, then grows in bitterness for the finish.

Pailhead (6539) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of big citrus, pineapple, peach, grapefruit, and alcohol. It pours a transparent amber with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film. Theres some sporadic thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with orange, pineapple, and light peach. The finish has moderate grapefruit and spicy hops along with light-moderate alcohol. Its medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel.

TheGB (578) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Pours golden with a lasting head. Aroma fills the room with sharp citrus, grass, and peach. Taste is similar but more grass and herb and spice. Nice cleansing palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

allfreej (556) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bottled. Clear honey-colored pour with a foamy white head. Lots of lace on the glass. Medium mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Slightly astringent hop resiny finish. Aroma is hop resin, floral hops, caramel malt. Rich caramel malt flavor. Lots of hop tastes. Resin, pine, floral. A big sticky DIPA. Very tasty. A really huge beer but amazingly balanced for all of the hops involved. ---Rated via Beer Buddy from my iPad.

I'm not a fan of mindlessly hoppy IPAs. They are a fad that we will remember going with Uggs, Crocs, and Autotune. That said, this is a hoppy Double IPA that works. Heady smell and taste of pine and mint. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
