BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Stone Brewing
California, United States | website

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.80%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Tasted 17 July 2012 as 10th Anniversary Ruination, reviewed from notes.

Pours clear golden orange, with a nice two-finger golden-yellow head. Good retention, excellent lacing. Good stuff all around.

Smell is floral hops and a strong melony sweet malt aroma. I like the combination, but the hops aren't as dominant as I'd expect in a beer the brewery touts as over-the-top. The hops I do get are rather juicy and citrusy.

Taste is similar to the smell, followed by a dose of bitterness that's below what I was anticipating. It's big and sweet, definitely balanced, tipping towards malty. Lots of fruity flavors come through, a blend of the hops and the sweetness of the malts. Melon, oranges, a touch of tropical fruit. Decently tasty. Alcohol is obvious, but doesn't detract much from the flavor. Finishes, hmm, bitter, I suppose, but not exactly palate-ruining.

Good mouthfeel - big, sticky, carbonation on the low end. Not bad, not particularly memorable.

I dunno, maybe I'm spoiled, living in the land of Abrasive. This is a good DIPA, but nothing about it wowed me. Definitely on the malty side, not surprising at almost 11%. But the hops were not showcased particularly well, IMO.

22 oz bottle from Pints OPlenty.

Appearance: Slight haze to this golden-orange pour. Bone white head with very nice retention and lacing, especially considering the abv.

Smell: Big sweet and hoppy. Distinctive citra aromas with lots of tropical fruit (and a hint of cat pee). Citrus and weedlike hops aromas second to the tropical fruit. There's a sweet pale malty aroma that tells me this is a big one, but I don't smell booze. Quite good.

Taste: A great combinaton of fruity hops flavor and unapologetic bitter bite. Nice "balance" from the malty sweetness. A delicious beer.

Mouthfeel: Feels like a big beer. Some might wish it dried out a bit more, but I like a little stickiness in a DIPA. Feels creamy and soft, ends with a medium-heavy malt stickiness and some hops resin.

Overall: Very well executed DIPA. I'd buy this as a seasonal for sure.

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

Hazy dark orange body; sizeable white head that settles slowly; strong creamy lacing. Nice overall appearance. Hops come out and smack you in the face in the aroma; grapefruit rinds, pine and resinous notes are plentiful and aggressive. Quite dank!

The flavor packs all of that; grapefruit and other citrus fruits; pine, and resin, as well as a noticeable onion/garlic note and a tongue-lashing bitterness that lingers for a long time in the aftertaste. Very little in the way of a malt presence; a faint caramel sweetness dries up in the finish and is totally overwhelmed by the assertive hop bitterness. Booze is fairly well masked but you feel it after you finish the bottle.

Medium bodied, medium carbonation, smooth and a little sticky. An tasty but over-the-top hop bomb to be sure. Not for the faint of heart. Big time flavor, lacks any subtlety. Aggressive and in your face.

Picked this up a few days ago at City Swaggers in NYC. 22 oz. bottle poured into my Bell's tulip.

a - Pours a deep, hazy orange-amber color with one and a half fingers of fluffy off white head and moderate carbonation evident. Head lasts for about two minutes and leaves some spotty lacing on the glass.

s - Smells of citrus hops, oranges, pine hops, some tropical fruits, fruity malts, and
grapefruits. Lots of hops; a very nice nose.

t - Tastes of fruity malts, citrus hops, oranges, grapefruit, pine hops, and lemon. Moderate to high bitterness. Not quite as hoppy as the nose, but still quite nice.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and moderate to high bitterness in the taste.

o - Overall a very good DIPA. I find the normal Ruination a good DIPA, though not my favorite, and I find this one very similar, except a little more orange/citrus and hops in the nose, and more bitterness in the mouthfeel and taste. A good beer; if you like the normal Ruination you'll probably love this one, if you don't then I would pass on it as it is very similar.

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

A - Pours a light, hazy orange. Pretty much the same hue as regular 'ole Ruination... but a little more translucent. Virtually zero head to speak of, some lacing with whatever small amount of head there was to begin with.

S - Hops, hops, sticky dank hops. Grapefruit, orange, pine, and a little bit of straw. The heavy malt character present in the taste is conspicuously absent from the nose.

T - Unsurprisingly, like the nose, this is a full-on hop assault to start out. Seriously bitter hops are definitely overwhelming... and then a curious thing happens. Strong, sweet malt comes through. Sweet caramel and bready grains balance it all out into a nice clean (extremely dry) finish.

M - Not as much carbonation as I'd hope for, but I suppose that's not out of the ordinary for the style. Just personal preference on this one, I suppose. Thick, syrupy, and mouth-coating with an extraordinarily dry finish.

O - Delicious. I really hope Stone decides to produce this one again at some point. Hop-forward, surprisingly balanced, and is easy-drinking(ish) for the massive ABV it sports.

Served in a Stone IRS Snifter.

22oz, enjoy by 8/23/12
Victory tulip

A: Pours out a traditional DIPA orange color. It's slightly hazy. One finger of off white head. Sticks around a while. Nice carbonation. Leaves some lacing as you sit and sip on it. In drinking for a while, that haze was chill haze. Nice clear dark orange color now.

S: Still have lots of tropical fruit aroma coupled with piney notes. I am get that mango and papaya. Maybe the age is showing with some malt coming through but it's faint.

T: Having this with spicy sushi isn't doing it justice. My palate is crushed, but there is still some intense bitterness on the tip of the tongue. I am getting those tropical hop varietals. Also some orange marmalade like character when it meets the malts that are there. This bitterness sticks through the whole sip, as mid palate is almost pulsing with it. The finish is bitter and dry with reminders of pine lingering. This does not taste like a 10+ ABV beer at all. Amazing.

M: It's a nice medium bodied DIPA. The bitterness really coats the tongue and sticks around punishing it.

O: A- leading to A of fresher and clean palate.

Had this on tap at Hair of the Dog in St. Louis. Great pour; big, 3 finger head, even with the bartender knowing how to pour. The best lacing and retention I've seen outside of a stout.

Smell was huge hops floral. Taste was surprisingly balanced with the extreme hop profile equaled by an impressive malt bill. Starts and finishes with a solid bitter hops flavor, but in between, the malt flavor profile provides a sweetness and balance I haven't seen in a DIPA. Drinks suspiciously easy for the 10.8% ABV, and is sticky and thick on the palate.

Overall, a great DIPA. I haven't had regular Ruination, but I need to try it to get a solid baseline.

Poured from bottle, which I picked up on the first day it was available in the Bay Area, into tulip glass.

A: Hazy, peachy amber color. Decent head that slowly recedes leaving very fine lace at the edge of the glass.

N: Heavy on the hops with a malt character to prop it up. Dank citrus & pine followed by a heavy, syrupy sweet note.

T/M: Taste follows the nose with absolutely resinous citrus qualities that never fully give way to a malty sweetness. The mouthfeel is medium, approaching heavy, but not particularly as thick as what I would expect from a beer that breaches 10%ABV. The heat remains a bit masked from the powerful hop qualities. Despite being very hoppy this does not really hint at garlic & onion flavors, which is a big success in my book.

This is a great tribute to the original destroyer of pallets! Obviously, I like the flavors of this one better than the original, although this may just be due to the effects of a gloriously heavy handed dry-hopping. Very tasty, Stone! You do hops pretty well, and I think most of us hop heads would have to thank you for popularizing the Imperial IPA style!

22oz bottle. Pours a super murky dark orange color with a half inch of white head. Minimal lacing. Aromas of citrus, piney, dank hops. Taste is dank, citrusy pine hops. Boozey and hoppy for sure. Really thick and heavy mouthfeel. Certainly tastes like a juiced up Ruination. Glad I got a chance to try it. Tasty hop bomb. Overall, worth seeking out. Great tribute to 10 years of one of the best Imperial IPAs.

A Bottle into some pint glasses, split with oglmcdgl.

Stone Ruination Tenth Anniversary IIPA is a nice looking golden color with some slight bronze tint to it. A nice frothy white foam that builds and leaves some gunk on the glass. Smell is pretty bright and heavenly laden with crisp citrus, orange, grapefuit, other citra brought scents. Some resinous pine with some bubblegum backing. The pale malt is there yet is not detracting. At six weeks in, this is a stellar version of an all ready hopped up DIPA. Bright citrus, orange, papaya, grapefruit. The bubblegum is sweet, the malt brings forth sugars balancing stuff out yet not killing the buzz. Bitter, yes, malt backing, yes, delicious, yes. The body is a step above medium ,resinous, piney and large. Carb is there pricking the tounge. I wish it did not take 6-7 weeks to get over here, but even with a bit of age this is one I would go back to, if I could find another bottle.

Pours a light, mellow orange with a one finger white head. Nice lacing throughout. Big citrus aroma to start. Freshly cut grapefruit and lesser tropical notes. Some malt and booze as well. Really big flavor here. Really big. Juicy grapefruit, peach and mango to start before a Ruination takeover. Bitter is next. Big pine resin, thick and sticky. Pretty substantial sugary malt does a nice job balancing out the huge hop flavor, before more bitterness on the finish. Solid kick of booze in there is a lone negative IMO. This is my favorite Stone Brew, especially very fresh, where the citra hop shines. Huge DIPA

Pours a clear golden orange with two finger fluffy off white head. Aroma is of massive pine notes and raw hops. Some caramel malt and booze linger in then nose. I could smell this from the bottle immediately after breaking this one open. Hops dominate the palate from front to back. Piney hops are at the forefront. Incredible hop bitterness coats the mouth and lingers. I will be tasting hops for a week or so. Alcohol is almost undetectable. Is there balance here? No, not really. Is that what Stone was shooting for? No. This is just a hopheads delight and the raw bitterness that Stone managed to get in this bottle is insane. A must try for any IPA lover.

A - The beer is a deep golden amber color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S - The aroma is solid with a primarily grapefruit and pine hop scent that has a resin hint. A hint of alcohol and not a lot of malt presence.

T - Big pine flavor with huge bitterness mixed with some caramel malt flavor that adds a bit of sweetness, but not too much.

M - Medium-full body, low carbonation, just a little bit of booze warmth.

O - This beer does live up to it's name. It's the most destructive IPA on my pleat that I've ever experienced. Good beer but does not live up to the hype for me.

Poured in to HF stemmed tulip glass.

A - Cloudy medium orange with a golden glow along the bottom. Half a finger of cream coloured head formed with good retention.

S - A big sweet caramel aroma hits the nose up front some some grapefruit, pine and earthy aromas coming through from the hops. A good bitterness is present but the malts take centre stage in the nose.

T - A massive bitterness up front that is almost puckering. A huge pine flavour along with some citrus come through from the hops. A very substantial malt backbone is present that adds a tone of sweetness and caramel flavours.

M - Medium body and very chewy. Full of resinous hop oils. light carbonation.

Poured into a brandy snifter. Pours dark orange copper with a large white head. Some tiny bubbles can be seen rising from the bottom and side of the glass. The head dissipates at a moderate pace, leaving some lacing on the glass. The big hop aromas hit the nose first. I pick up the citrus hop aromas, but the pine aromas are much more intense. There's a big caramel malt aroma as well. There is a gigantic hop flavor explosion in the mouth. The piney resin coats the tongue, bringing a large amount of hop bitterness. The citrus flavors come next as do the sweet malts. For the intensity of the hop flavors, this is extremely well-balanced. The alcohol does not come through in the flavor either. The body is full with moderate carbonation. For such a big style, this is dangerously easy to consume. This is an excellent beer that was well worth the hype.

Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into my new 25 oz. snifter. Pretty excited for this glass.

I'm looking forward to this beer. I thought I had missed out on but was glad to pick up a bottle at Whole Foods on Friday.

Appearance: Pours an opaque copper amber with two finger of fluffy light tan head. Nice head retention and really great lacing. Looks like it's going to hang around for the long run.

Smell: Huge oily hops aromas...citrus and pine. The smell is moderately boozy that chases a little warmth up your nose. A very intense, but inviting smelling beer.

Taste: Overpowering and slightly raw. Insane bitterness with huge piney notes. Big dose of boozy warmth on the tale end of the sip as well as some dryness. Certainly this beer lives up to the Ruination mantle. It's over the top for sure, but also very well constructed. The bitterness is unrelenting but not harsh.

Mouthfeel: Thick, resinous and oily. A big, big sticky DIPA. I'm lingering over this one. The booziness makes it a sipper as does the palate wrecking quality of the beer itself.

Overall: Well worth the hype. I'm glad I was able to get my hands on this beer.

A bottle from Al's. From my notes (the growler was about a month ago).

A: Golden amber, translucent with a white head. Stunning, a deceptive looker that quickly betrays its ruinous body.

S: Wow, that is one hell of a nose - hoppy with a caustic edge. Pine aromas, thick and treacly like sap, dominate the ale with a bitter, harsh finish. Harsh, normally a perjorative, is meant as a compliment - the hop intensity through the roof. There is a surprising balance to the ale, the caramel base present with stand-out aromas at times. Generally, though, this is a beautifully hoppy and bitter ale.

T: Oily and juicy, the hop bitterness is absolutely sick, numbing even. Pine at the fore, citrus, including sweet citra, following later. The bite starts off strong and seemingly grows stronger, never letting off the accelerator. Despite the intense hoppiness, the balance of the ale makes it work. Caramel is thick and syrupy, more than able to support the hops. The range of hop flavors, tropical, piney, lush, Christmas tree-like, really hits the spot. Abrasive and biting but oh so delicious.

M: A hop paradise - the bitterness feels like it is still lingering in the back of my month. A bit boozy but that isn't entirely unexpected. One of the hoppiest...

A - Pours with one finger of off-white foam on top of a hazy, copper colored body. The head settles fairly quickly but leaves nice lace.

S - A really strong, green hop aroma of pine and sweaty hops with some bready malt in the background. Smells like a handful of hop pellets.

T - Sweet malt and huge loads of pungent, pine hops up front. More pine and sweaty hop in the middle with toffee and bread malt character. Finishes with overwhelming hop flavors of pine, orange, and pepper.

M - Medium-thick body, moderate carbonation, and a sweet finish.

D - Wow. This is the hoppiest beer I have ever had. More than Pliny, more than hopslam, just ridiculously over the top. I could smell the hops as soon as the cap came off the bottle and it only got stronger from there. It smell more like hops than a handful of actual hops does. It also comes across as slightly more drinkable than regular Ruination since the extra malt and alcohol helps balance the saturation level of bitterness. Absolutely worth trying and while I know this won't ever become a year round offering I would certainly buy it again if they ever make another batch.

Straight out of the bottle and into a snifter glass, it poured a vibrant amber color. There wasn't much head to speak of, but it did leave some lacing around the glass, as it was consumed. The aromas from the start were of citrus fruits including orange and grapefruit, and there were also a lot of grassy and piney qualities typical of other West coast Imperial IPAs.

The taste followed up with many of the same characteristics of the nose, and had a very juicy mouthfeel to it. The fruity flavors came on strong, then the piney/grassy bitterness came though towards the end.

Overall, this is one of the best double IPAs I've had in a while and definitely worth the wait.

My god this beer was amazing!
Ruination itself is already great but this one takes it to a new level.
I am very "hoppy" to have had it for IPA Day yesterday and to be able to share it with good friends who also enjoy hoppy brews!
It pours out a nice golden color and the smell of hops invades your nostrils. It's a piney/dankish hop smell, just like I likes it!!!

If the smell alone doesn't blow you away the taste sure as hell will. It's nice because it's more about the hop flavor and aroma than the bitterness. I found it to be less bitter than the normal Ruination, I actually prefer it like that.

Get one of these if you can, if your a hophead you will not regret it!

Into a snifter pours a brilliant and very clear orange rust color under a fair and well sustained head. Aroma is undeniably hoppy with a lush bouquet of floral and pine hops that braces the senses for a hop invasion. Sharp bitter concentration of pungently strong pine accented hops delivers the "Ruination" as promised... Finish leaves a semi salty, grassy pine tattoo on the palate that resonates long after. Nuclear level hop flavor is balanced out fairly well by a solid supporting malt backbone that lets the bitterness burst through.

A: A deep amber tinted with a glowing orange hue having excellent clarity and a persistent off-white head.

S: A big hops nose with citrus and pineapple dominating along with grapefruit, pine and some grassy notes. There is a clean malt aroma. No alcohol noticeable behind all the hops to warn about the ABV.

T: Bitter, yet smooth hop candy dominated by pineapple, orange and grapefruit. It has a high hop flavor with a moderately-high hop bitterness. There is enough malt sweetness keep the bitterness from being to assertive though the balance is well into the bitter side. The bitterness hangs on well past the dry finish without being harsh.

M: Medium-light with a moderate carbonation and smooth alcohol warming.

O: This is definitely in my top five list for Double IPA, just an outstanding beer for a hop head. The balance and smoothness of this beer while having so much hop flavor and a respectable strong bitterness is a real treat.

Poured into a tulip glass from the tap at iTap-Soulard for St. Louis Craft Beer Week.

Pours a bright dark copper with some slight haze. There is a dense light creamy colored head that forms and has some sticky lacing.

Aroma is intense. Sweet and boozy with monstrous hop resin notes that are intense and delicious. Strong grapefruit and tangerine and even some sweet pineapple notes. Malts might be there with some caramel and slight grain notes.

Taste is impressive. Intense hoppy brew. Citrus notes with some grapefruit and strong orange notes, both sweet and citrusy. Sweetness is definitely prominent in the taste. But mixes well with some intense hop notes that destroy the palette. Yummy. The booze is prominent and I can definitely feel it a bit. Great resinous and sticky body with some nice dry finish.

Overall. Stone nailed it with this brew. Delicious and well crafted. Intense and devastating hops that really put your palette out for a rest but that is so delicious that you can’t help but want more.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep golden amber color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is an excellent combination of fruit citrus, piney hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste is expertly balanced with strong flavors of floral hops bitterness and citrus and caramel sweetness harmoniously coming together. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and the high ABV is very well-hidden. The after-taste is hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Extremely tasty, goes down dangerously easily, not too filling, strong kick, excellent representation of style, this beer is every bit as wonderful as the original. It’s the type of beer that once you start drinking it you won’t want to drink anything else for the rest of the evening.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. It pours a golden orange color and forms a 1/2 inch eggshell colored head that slowly reduces leaving a nice lacing.

The aroma is solid with a primarily grapefruit and pine hop scent that has a sappy/resin hit. A hint of alcohol and not a lot of malt presence.

The taste is again that great hoppy blend of pineapple sweetness and pine rawness, combined wih just barely enough malts and bitterness at the end.

The mouthfeel is medium/full bodied with a reasonable level of carbonation. Velvety texture with a nice dry finish.

Overall, I think this is a great beer. It is a solidly hopped beer with great flavor and aroma combinations. Well worth it if you can get it.
