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

On tap. Very intense. But as balanced as it could be I guess. A little muddy but really good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Super crazy hoppy taste and palate is intense. Different than anything Ive ever had. Pours a really deep golden brown. Refreshing and crisp.

Lukaduke (3163) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Pours a deep golden copper with a two finger thick foam that laces nicely. The nose is full of fresh hoppy fruit, sweet pineapple, orange rind, earthy pine, toffee, cotton candy. The palate follows with sweet sugary touches of fruit on the tongue... quickly gets really bitter almost burns on the finish. Cotton candy.

Cloudy amber orange. Head isnt much, but its classic IPA appearance. The lacing is solid. Aroma is piney but also buttery, the caramel malts really offsets the bitterness nicely. Its like an even smoother version of the original. The taste is crazy bitter; spicy and woody hops. The malts are earthy. Feels prickly, much more carbonated than I expected based on the look. Its a very gritty IPA. Lots of intense flavors. Ill be honest: Stone isnt really inventing anything new here, but its another solid offering.

22 oz bottle from Julios. Pours out a deep clear copper color with a frothy off-white head that settles to a thick lace. Super hoppy aromas. Flavor is very hoppy and resinous. Very piney, slight bit of burnt rubber. Thick and bitter spice. Very sticky finish.

22 oz says drink by 8/28/13 (two months away). Pours a clear amber with a large off-white head. Aroma isnt as powerful as I expected and just smells of hops, citrus and alcohol.Taste alcohol-y and bitter, heavy mouth-feel with some carbonation. Only saving grace is bitter malt background that helps disguise the alcohol taste, but the job is not done well enough. Reminds me of canned double ipas with bold harsh taste, sixpoint resin and oscar blues gubna. Thought I would enjoy this offering Im real disappointed.

trumpetskid (106) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Pours a dark orange/ amber with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet malt, and complex, bitter, citrus hops. The taste follows the aroma. There is a big malt presence that is hammered by resinous hop bitterness. The beer is thick and sticky on the palate. This is one the more over the top ipas Ive ever had. Its good, but its hard to drink more than a few ounces at a time. This is a sipper.

raphael (1220) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 26, 2013
can an aroma be spongy--its thick with air holes, fine pine with light citrus, but intensely so. clear yellow amber with modest white head. mouth is happy with oily texture and hops all over the place, aerial. odd caramel; flavor before the hops assault in resin & grapefruita bit much. full spectrum finish. Gorgeous bottles.

22oz bomber. Pours a clear deep copper color with a finger of tan head. Aroma of strong citrus, pine, and caramel malt. Taste is bitter citrus and pine, resin, and caramel.

Aromas of grapefruit and hops. Pours a golden copper with a silky smooth head. Tastes of dank, piney, fruity hops. Bitter and dry finish. Sticky mouthfeel. Excellent DIPA, but I still like Enjoy By better.
