Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ehammond1 on 06-14-2012

We first released this decidedly indelicate beer in 2012, as Stone Ruination Tenth Anniversary IPA, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our belovedly bitter Stone Ruination IPA. Stone RuinTen IPA uses the same recklessly hoppy recipe as the 2012 release; only the name has changed, as we plan to unleash this belligerently delicious hop monster upon the public annually from now on. We packed a whopping five pounds of hops into each barrel, and cranked up the ABV to stand up to the hop onslaught. The results are glorious, and we know you'll rejoice in tasting this audacious gem of hoppy splendor once again. You're welcome.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass.

A: Clear golden color with amber hues. Aggressive pour leads to a big fluffy 2 finger head that keeps on truckin' leading to sticky lacing all down the glass.

S: Big monster hops, Citra first but the Centennial are definitely identifiable. Malt is present and accounted for. The alcohol is not very prevalent in the nose.

T: Hops and malt blend a bit more than the nose leading to a balanced DIPA. Personally, I prefer a hop bomb but I can respect a well balanced DIPA as well. Nice flavor. Alcohol definitely present at the end of the taste.

M: Perfect creamy yet carbonated with tons of hop oils coating the mouth. Exactly how I want it to feel.

O: A wonderful beer. World Class Double IPA most definitely. Stone rarely disappoints, this is another example of excellence in a glass.

A: Pours a clear dark orange, frothy off-white head that lingers a bit.

S: Citrus orange notes with a good bit of grassy/piney tones. A bit light as compared to others of this variety.

T: Pine resin is the clear forward flavor, but lends to some citrusy notes with a touch of caramel. Brings a nice balance to the flavor of this beer, much different than what I was expecting.

M: Nice body, moderately carbonated. Hops do a nice job of hiding the alcohol.

O: Very solid brew, well-balanced and much more complex than the Ruination. Personally I still prefer Enjoy By but this is still a must try!

Served from a bomber bottle into a wine glass.

A - Color is a brilliant gold-orange with excellent clarity. Head is pure white and a bit weak. The bubbles have an oily sheen. Strong lacing.

S - The aroma is mainly of hops: spicy, peppery, citrusy and piney. Some bready malt and sweet alcohol in the background. Very clean and fresh smelling.

T - Hops initially drown out all other sensations. Very strong bitterness, along with a big hit of citrus and spice hops flavors. It seems a bit harsh at first. Later in the palate some sweet biscuit-like malt comes in and even a bit of cotton candy sweetness. Then the bitterness rushes back and turns it into a mostly dry finish.

M - Medium to heavy body. Extreme hops burn along with some alcohol presence, although the 10.5% is not evident. Carbonation is a bit low.

O - This beer's flavors undergo amazing changes during a single sip. Great complexity. I like the way it seems to slide into a sweet malty place and then back into a burning, hops-driven dryness. Wow.

22oz bottle, poured into a snifter

The body sits a golden orange with a huge, fluffy ecru cap. The cap rose 3-4 fingers and receded in raindrop fashion. Sticky, spider web lacing.

Bright orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pine resin, pineapple aroma leaps out of the glass. Some spicy earth as well. Toasted light caramel malt back bone.

An oily, resiny flavor profile. Sweet tropical fruits with tons of orange. Some spicy earth, almost rye notes underneath. Big, full hop profile with a sturdy, yet light malt bill.

Oily, resiny, chewy hops. Medium feel with mild carbonation. Finish is a moderate bitterness at first, but builds with each sip.

This beer is welcome in my glass anytime. An enamel ripper of a DIPA.

Pours from cask a great bright orange. Supersaturated and cloudy, can't see through this ipa at all. Off white frothy one finger head that stays.

Smells of fresh orange zest with some mango and grapefruit. Grassy slightly piny hop notes.

Tastes of some great malty sweetness up front. Warming alcohol and fruity esters. Tons of mango, orange, and grapefruit. Bitterness is quite mild at first but comes through towards the end. There's that grassy, pine hop bite but it blends well with the resinous, sticky quality of this beer. I can't say its perfectly balanced but that's a good thing for this beer. It stands out to me mostly because of the diverse flavors throughout the taste. I was wondering why it had the amount of alcohol notes coming through and realized this is almost an 11% beer.

Mouthfeel is very creamy, sticky, and round. This on cask makes it feel like a beer worth savoring.

Overall, it's a fantastic ipa that's very different from all others in its class. Refreshing, diverse, and interesting. This could be one of the best beers I've had if it weren't for the amount of alcohol notes. But, it's still up there.

Poured from a bomber into a Stone pint glass. The bottle is marked "Drink by 08/28/13", it should be very fresh.

Appearance: Pours a translucent copper and leaves a finger of nice, dense head that lingers for quite some time leaving behind some very nice lacing.

Smell: That nice, dank ruination hop aroma shines through: pine, light citrus/pineapple, earthy tones, hops, hops, hops.

Taste: Pleasant, strong pine, caramel, nice malt backbone to keep it in check, earthy tones. I might even dare to say that this is more balanced than standard ruination, although both are definitely hop bombs. Tasty hop-forward flavor.

Mouth-feel: Very well carbonated with a medium slightly syrupy body, although not overly so. Finishes very smooth for the ABV.

Overall: Definitely a quality (¿triple?) IPA. Lots of hops, but still very drinkable. I'm impressed with the tasty, piney flavor as well as the nice, slightly softer aroma. I would tend to look for a bit more balance in an IPA like this, but this is certainly close.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

In my snifter: Stone RuinTen Imperial IPA from Stone Brewing. Twenty-two ounce bomber poured into a New Belgium snifter. Vitals: 10.8%abv and 100+ IBU. Bottle says best by 9-15-13.

A- Pours a dark, clear copper with a heavy off-white head that retreats rapidly and leaves slight lacing. Not much of a carb volcano from the bottom of the glass... In fact, there are no bubbles down there at all.

S- Strong smell of pine and hops. No citrus, no malt, just hops, hops and more hops. So far, the reputation of this beast is accurate. Now for the taste....

T- Hop-heads rejoice... As advertised, this one packs a hop punch like nothing most have ever tasted. Overwhelmingly bitter on the initial taste, but just enough malt to give it a nice, even finish. I taste piney hops and the slightest bit of biscuit. No citrus anywhere. After the finish, a deep draw of breath reveals a slight flavor of white grape must.

M- The mouthfeel is standard for a high-quality double IPA... It has nice carbonation as it leaves the glass, but before it reaches the throat it is as flat as a glass of milk. Slick and oily with just the slightest hint of alcohol burn in the nose. Not a brew you would want to pound a few of on a Friday night... This is the Chuck Norris version of beer...

O- Overall I think this offering from Stone deserves high marks. As the bottle says, it is "a stage dive into a mosh pit of hops". I could never drink two of these in a session, in fact it may be hard to finish all 22 ounces of this beast. Highly recommend to my hop-loving pals, but American lager drinkers would hate this one!

Poured from a bomber into snifter

Appearance – Pours a hazy orange color with a two finger white head. The head fades relatively fast to leave a good level of lacing.

Smell – A delicious citrus aroma is the heaviest; a wonderful mix of tangerine, orange with a lighter note of grapefruit. Mixed with this are malty notes of a more bready nature mixed with a lighter caramel sweetness. Very pleasant.

Taste – The taste begins big in malt where a caramel sweet and bready taste meets the tongue. The hops soon enter the taste however and mellow out some of the sweetness. While initially the hop flavors are of a sweeter nature themselves, with a strong tangerine and sweet grapefruit flavor, as the taste advances it bitter up ever so slightly as flavors of a pine and some lemon nature come to the tongue. In the end the malt and the hop seem to meet a common ground and blend to produce a very hoppy, yet quite balanced taste on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is thick and creamy with a moderate level of carbonation. The body suits the beer very nicely and allows all the hop flavors to soak into the tongue.

Overall – Delicious and dangerous. While at 10.8 % this thick and tasty brew conceals its alcohol quite well. Large sweet and hoppy flavors and a great creamy body make this one to try!!

Extremely boozy - which is obviously to be expected with a 10.8% beer, but the alcohol is extremely apparent. The smell is magnificent, though - about as citrusy and reisny as any IPA or double IPA I've ever had. I'd give it a higher score if the alcohol was masked more, but it's still a great beer nonetheless.

Poured from the bottle into a sampler goblet, this DIPA was a copper color with slightly off-white head. Leaving some lacing in the glass, this beer demonstrated character. The aroma was a malty peppery combination, preparing for a hop explosion. In the initial taste, one gets the carmel of the malts before the hops explode. Notes of pineapple, grapefruit, and a sweet grassy taste "ruin" the palate. The citra hops were easily detectable, often overwhelming the less explosive centennial hops. The malt stays in the background, but gives a nice smooth feeling to the ale. The citrus notes continue in the aftertaste while warming the throat as it goes down. This is a DIPA that some non-IPA drinkers even liked. The bitterness that some dislike in IPAs is hidden by the power of the citra.

No freshness dating.

A= Pours a hazy deep orange color with a thin half finger of head on it that rises and holds a little retention and lacing on the glass.

S= Smells like fresh hops. A lovely mix of citrus and pine. With a strong resin aroma.

T= Boom! Hits the tongue hard with tons and tons of strong resin on the tongue. Long lasting flavor and after a while it just blacks your tongue out. Nothing else can be tasted after the first few sips.

M= Nice thicker mouth for an IPA while the hops seems to make it surpisingly crisp.

O= This is a quality DIPA. Well worth checking out and living up to the name. Ruins your tongue.

Poured into my Ruination pint glass. Appearance is a very clear and light orange colored. Head is a large three fingers of creamy delight. The head is bright white and lace is huge and gonna be here a while.

Smell is fantastic. Citrus peel of maybe an orange or a tangerine. Some pineapple and sugar. Pine notes and hop cones. Did I mention fantastic yet?

Taste is actually quite malty. Regular Ruination has quite a large malt bill itself so this isn't that much of a surprise. This is though much heavier on everything else. There is a huge mixture of a yellow grapefruit and a blood orange her. Super sweet and bitter at the same time. The Citra hops have left the building by now. I had this last month and it was a different animal. Too bad it took a month to get this in Arizona. Still quite tasty though.

Mouth is crisp but smooth. Carbonation is on the spritzy side. body is balanced and the finish is long and on the wet side for an IPA/IIPA.

Overall I really liked this last month. It has dropped off quite of bit since then but I still want to emphasize how good this beer is. It's a shame that the great flavor of Citra doesn't last very long in any beer. This is one I will be very curious to try in a few month or even a year or two just to see how is has changed but my advise is to drink it as fresh as possible. A must seek out!!

On tap at the FW invitational, last beer of the day, but boy o boy, did this one cut through. Big dense orange liquid, small off white almost beige head to it. Aroma, pungent hops, bittersweet. So overpowering it didn't lend itself to particularized notions of grapefruit v. pine or whatnot. Its just that powerful.

Taste, immediately brings me back to the first time I had Ruination ten years ago. Palate bitter shock. Wow. Just an immense amount of hops and malt becomes obvious. Its like the strength of hopping similar to Devil Dancer or Double Crooked Tree, but has more of the green hop vibe ratio going for it moreso than the thick syrupy malt sweetness that the others do (which are both good in their own right). This stuff is so big, it can cut through a days worth of drinking awesome stuff, and it will probably ruin your palate otherwise, hence the name.

Pretty decent way of hiding nearly 11% alcohol too. Brutally hoppy, hefty, acidic. Well maybe not hefty, hefty sugar addition I guess. Nothing delicate here, but if you're in the mood for some alcohol & hop overload, this will float your boat.

A: clear deep gold beer; ivory head fades fast but litters the glass with lace

S: bitter hops' citrusy notes, malty backbone

T: grapefruit and citrus up front, resin, pine; herbal; malty caramel; buttery

M: fairly viscous, some alcohol heat, bitter on the tongue; chewy

O: reminds me a lot of what Double Bastard would be as an IPA - very strong, rich, "palate-wrecking" as they say; perhaps too much for some, but spot-on for me

Poured from the bottle into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: This one pours a clear amber color with just over half a finger of fluffy off white head that leaves some lacing on the glass.

Smell: Lots of hope. I'm getting some citrus peel hop bitterness along with some tropical fruits. There are also some floral notes along with some pine.

Taste: A lot more pine in the taste than the smell. Lots of sticky hops just crushing the tongue. Citrus peel and tropical fruit. There is enough malt that the sweetness and some alcohol come through, but the hops are the star.

Mouthfeel: The body is a bit syrupy with aggressive, smooth carbonation and a slick finish.

Overall: This is a fantastic double ipa. The hop profile is just wonderful. I'm glad I have more.

Pours a a light amber-orange with minimal head. Very little, if any, lacing.

Nice flowery hops hit the nose immediatley. Some citrus and caramel malt follow through. Just a well-balanced nose.

WHAM! Hops hit the tongue hard, showing little or no mercy. Citrus and caramel follow up. Medium to fairly heavy body. Carbonation is killed by the overdose of hops.

This is pure hops heaven. Beer really doesn't get any better than this.

Get it, and get it NOW!

Today is the annual IPA Day and I wanted to do something special to celebrate. I was able to purchase a couple of bottles from my local bottle shop when they initially went on sale and since it is marked "Limited Edition - Enjoy Fresh", it occurred to me that today might be the day to break it out.

From the bottle: "In June 2002, we released Stone Ruination IPA. Bigger, hoppier, & much much [italicized] much more bitter than the popular beers of the day. In fact, back then it was on the outer fringe of craft brewing. So, in a bid to warn folks of the bitter impact of our "Liquid Poem to the Glory of the Hop", we named it Stone Ruination, for its extraordinarily bitter, "ruinous effect" on the palate. People thought we were nuts. Nobody would want such a bitter beer. You see, in June 2002, only a tiny handful of breweries either had bottled a double IPA as a limited release or had one on tap at their brewpub. Without realizing it, we'd made a bit of history, as our new beer proved to be the first full-time brewed & bottled double IPA on the planet. How times have changed. Today, double IPAs are brewed by literally hundreds of craft breweries all over the world. Incredible. Delicious. And incredibly delicious.

No, we didn;t create the double IPA style. That honor's been attributed to our old friend, Vinnie Cilurzo, who produced his Blind Pig 1st Anniversary IPA in 1996 in nearby Temecula, CA (the same year Stone opened). We then picked up the double IPA baton with our successively-ever-bigger-and-hoppier Stone 2nd through 5th Anniversary IPAs (1998-2001). Ultimately, in 2002, we blended those recipes to create Stone Ruination IPA, if for no other reason than we simply wanted that big, hoppy character available to us all year 'round. Turned out you did, too! Today Stone Ruination IPA is one of the best selling double IPAs in the world, thanks to you, so we brewed this special version to celebrate."

I set this aside for International IPA Day and here we are! It poured with a massive two fingers of deep-tan head with excellent retention, leaving sticky lace behind as it fell. Color was a deep amber with NE-quality clarity. Nose was dense with citrus hops, caramel malt and alcohol heat. I almost needed a seat belt before beginning! Mouthfeel was full, kind of viscous and quite oily on the tongue with lots of citrusy hops on the tongue. Phew! I know that I was missing subtleties in it, but the heat was masking a lot of it for me. Finish was beyond dry, it was f**king arid! Man, I wanted a glass of water just to be able to catch my breath. Phew! This was quite the beer, but a steady diet would be too much, even for this self-avowed hophead.

On tap at Bier Baron poured in a 10 oz. goblet.

Pours a crystal clear dark golden color. Wispy white head tops the beer and leaves a sticky lacing on the glass.

Strong hop aroma of blunt citrus. Grapefruit rind and pith, and blood orange are in the foreground with a touch of weed lurking in the background. A slight sweetness from the malt is detectable as well.

The taste is big and powerful with hops! Major pithy citrus rind. Somewhat one dimensional in its powerful grapefruit character. Sticky resiny hops power this beer.

Stone beers always have a refined full mouthfee, even the low ABV beers and this one is no exception. Coating is a good word to describe it. Bitterness on the back end is huge.

Overall an awesome DIPA done in typical Stone flashiness.

Reviewed from notes

22oz bottle

A - Pours a golden copper with a two finger off white head. Head retention is very good and there is a decent amount of sticky lace to be had...

S - Caramel, piney hops, and citrus fruit. Hops are definitely present here, but sweet malt is front and center...

T - Grapefruit and mango up front with lots of piney hops in the mix. Caramel is present throughout, but is not up front like it is in the scent. This one rides the hop wave all the way through with a nice caramel backbone. Alcohol is very well hidden considering the abv. Very tatsy...

M - Sits on the higher end of the medium bodied scale with a lower amount of carbonation...

O - I thought this was going to be a straight hop bomb. I was presently surprised that this one is pretty well balanced and fairly easy to drink. Stone comes through with another very solid DIPA...

22oz bottle labeled best by september, served in a snifter

look is a typical IPA color with a little more reddish tone, small head that lasts, filtered. smell is juicy and full of hops: sour green apple bubblegum, pine and orange marmalade in the background. taste is similar, with juicy green apple up front, then juicy citrus and fruit preserve, finishing spicy, slick and bitter.

Glad they brought this one back.

A- Pours a crystal clear golden orange color with a nice foamy white head. Head has great retention and leaves some nice layered lacing.

S- Smell is really nice too. A huge amount of tropical fruit hops and a ton of pine. A good back bone of bready malts.

T- Pretty much a hop bomb. Hops every where. Very similar to the original with a nice stronger hop punch. A very slight alcohol taste here. A great amount of hop bitterness too.

M- Medium in both body and carbonation.

O- This is a great beer for sure. A hop bomb and very easy to drink.

A - Pours a copper orange with a ruby back glow. Pancake batter like head remains and leaves nice soapy bubbles after each drink.

S - Citrus hops, caramel, dank, grass.

T - Huge citrus hop bomb, balanced and equaled with a big malt back bone. Everything blends together perfectly and this a smack you in the mouth DIPA with full flavors all around.

O - Quintessential Stone...This brew is right in my wheelhouse. One of the best DIPA's on the planet.

Drink By 08/28/13

a: darkish copper. thickish white frothy head which keeps it general form for some time

s: piney hops galore. grapefruit. some light caramel sweetness

t: hop bitterness explosive punch to the tongue. some caramel maltiness on the back end.

m: bit syrupy. medium carbonation finishes dry.

o: Halfway through I just notice on the label it is 10.8%. Indeed it is. Boozy one this. Love the hoppy bitterness just wish they toned down the booziness just a tad. A must try for hopheads, no question. A true palate wrecker as well. I think I might need to take a nap now...

22 ounce snifter, bottled on 6/12/15, into a snifter.

Pours a good looking copper color, lightly hazy, with a small head and not much lacing. Smell is a boatload of hops- citrus, mostly grapefruit and orange, some pine, a little dank. Malt comes through, maybe a little yeast. Smells great. Taste is led by bitter, juicy hops and more malt than the nose. It's bitter, but not rip your face off bitter. To me, the malt provides a solid backbone. Really smooth for the ABV and the big hop presence. Refreshing.

There's no big palette of unique tastes battering your senses here. Just hops and malt expertly blended. Everyone should try this; I'll be buying it every year.

Poured from a bomber, orangey-amber with bubbly off-white head

smell: really nice. smells pretty sweet with powerful hops- pineapple, citrus. grainy sweet caramely malt

taste: starts with (obviously) super hops- almost typically 10%+ dipa-- bitter pineapple, lemon/citric-sugar, mango, grain, finishes with nice mildly sweet caramel malt, pine, pineapple and grapefruit, gets a little chaffy malt as it warms

feel: dipa, medium-hefty

this is a great dipa. I'm not a huge fan of Ruination, but Ruinten definitely picks up on some of Ruination's slack.
