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 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

Very tasty IPA with a strong 10.8 Ach I really enjoyed this beer and the buzz I got, for home drinking only.

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 (136) - 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 don’t like bitter, but for those of us who do it’s a treat as it’s 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 wasn’t expecting, a little bit of honey-ish flavor. I don’t recall Ruination having that same sweetness.

arone12 (929) - Maryland, USA - JUN 28, 2013
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.

coolfunnj (374) - Margate City, New Jersey, USA - JUN 28, 2013
aroma almost exactly like a freshly cut grapefruit..yes really..slightly ambered clear yellow golden liquid,foamy white head lots of retention...tastes of grapefruit,light ginger,lemon.possibly a hint of pine..there is a malty background but its way in the back..very refreshing..medium-full bodied tingly and just a little slick on the palate with a very dry/bitter finish..overall..great ipa and great summer beer
