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 a translucent golden amber with a medium creamy off white head. Aroma was very dank, caramel and mixed citrus. Flavor is kind of sweet up front, aggressively bitter and then dries out a bit. Flavor is also very dank.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 On draft at The Top in Gainesville. Tapped today! Pours copper golden and clear with a small white head. Massive grapefruit aroma with huge floral aromatics. Big slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation (on the low side for an IPA). Flavor of pine hops, very fresh. Some grapefruit and definite floral hop flavor. A bit of malt backbone here, but highlights the bitter as a Ruin(beer) should. Missed out on this last year and glad they brought it back. More flavor than regular ruination, but playing second fiddle to Enjoy By. Good stuff.

Hopswagger (199) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 26, 2013
P: Crystal clear body with a silky white top. S: Juicy tropical fruit bouquet that is encased in lime leaves. Pineapple, melon, grapefruit, and floral hops. T/M: Succulent juicy tropical fruits, toasted sesame seeds, oak funk, old leather, spiced rum and herbs. Spicy medium mouthfeel that bites back. O: Huge tropical hops and toasty malts. Whats not to love. This is by far one of the best impys Ive had. Succulent and smooth. Great way to celebrate a anniversary. Cheers!

Pours dark copper with yellow head that lingers. Amazing floral notes mixed with citrus. Mouthfeel is moderate with a complex malty backbone holding together an in-your-face burst of hops. Not cloying. Very drinkable for an 11% off-the-charts IBU beer. Well done ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance, golden copper and hazy with tints of hay straw. One finger thick head. Aroma, deep floral pine and citrus such as lemon, orange, grapefruit. Palate is thick, smooth, with after tastes of pine and extreme bitterness. Very fresh and crisp.

ajnepple (6139) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 26, 2013
22 oz bomber from Campus West. Orange amber appearance with a lasting off-white head and light lacing. The aroma is fresh citrus fruits, resinous hops, piney, floral and bitter with light alcohol. Similar flavor, bitter and resinous hops, quite piney with light solvent. Medium body with a dry feel. Slightly disappointing.

Bottle 750ml at the Sybarite Pig. Snifter. Pours an amber-golden with haze and thick white head. Aroma is HOPS...pine, resin, fresh grass and weeds. The taste is liquid sex. Mann I loved it. Fresh hops, pine, pine resin, grass, weeds and well balanced with the malts. VERY bitter finish. Dry. Oh so good.

Every hop heads dream. First sniff and you think you might be in over your head. Extremely bitter! Love it love it love it! If you like high IBU's then this is a must have on stock for your fridge. ---Crozier
