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.

Pours a nice hazy dark orange, an extremely hoppy beer and one of my all-time favorites. Whereas many of the new Stone IPA offerings have been more crisp and citrusy, Ruinten is hoppy and aggressive, make this year round Stone!

opened this bad boy last night out on the patio and i could smell the hops from six feet away. poured into a pint glass, this beer had a clear copper body with two fingers worth of creamy off white head. as i said the smell is big, couldnt wait to dump this down my gullet. aromas of orange and lemon mix with grapefruit and grass. while the taste was a little lesser than the aroma, it was still damn good. huge citrus hop flavors overpower whatever else is in there. a full body with excellent carbonation and a very oily feel to it lead to a short dry finish that left me wanting more. overall i would say very well done stone.

On tap fresh. I'm not a fan. 1 note super bitter hop bomb. No Idea how this gets such high ratings. Save yourself some money and have a taster or buy a bottle in a mix six pack...

Probably one of my favorite IPAs. This is one of the most well balanced DIPAs I have had. It is dangerously drinkable at 11% ABV. The hop character and nose hides the high ABV very well.

A: Clear orange/amger with 3 finger head, lots of lacing.

S: Big Big hops smell. Floral, grapefruit, Sweetness

T: Follows the nose, but there is actually quite a bit of malt, Well-balanced. Grapefruit, some peach, it actually kind of remind me of Pliny the Younger a little, but it's more floral.

M: Medium body, alcohol can be felt a little bit towards the end

O: Excellent DIPA from Stone. I don't remember the regular Ruination being this good, although I last had it very long time ago.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Five-finger head pours white with lots of foam leaving behind tiny soapy bubbles. Brew is nicely clear with red-ish orange color. Chunky circular lacing.

Whoa! Not your typical West Coast (WC) IPA scent... Lots of cascade (maybe Centennial) hops along with mango. Smells SUPER bitter and slightly sugary. Slight methane scent.

Perfect carbonation. Tons of WC bitterness. Very floral and not tropical at all. Amazingly buttery smooth.

The scent kicks this brew down a notch, there's a bit too much unrounded aroma going on with the nose. Recommended, but not worth the hype I heard.

Had out of 22oz bomber poured into a Belgian style glass. Pours a dark copper amber color with a thin foamy head. A huge punch of citrusy hops hits your nose and taste buds from this big imperial IPA. At 10.8% the alcohol content is pretty intense and not for the faint of heart. Solid beer especially for the hop heads out there

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

Appearance: (4.0)

- Nice dark copper brew, mostly clear with only the slightest haze. Big fluffy ruination-like bubbly head foams up to a couple of fingers, and then settles to a spotty misc-bubble mess with lace alla bout the glass, and a blanket of foamy bubbly madness over the madness.

Smell: (4.0)

- Big citrus sweet hops. Dank dank fruity hops with a caramel roast. I think this beer is so big that the aromas are too much for itself. Nice sharp hop with a lovely spice. Almost burning the nose hairs with hops. Big caramel sweetness, bready and biscuit, and concentrated hop madness. Madness is the key word here.

Taste: (4.0)

- Wonderful blend of malts, bready character, severe aroma hops... big citrus, spice, apple, grapefruit, zesty pine, grassy earth, and overall caramel sweetness. Surprisingly this has been done very well for such a big hitter. Hardly any alcohol flavors tho speak of. Truly a masterpiece.

Mouth Feel: (4.0)

- Nice heavy body, not overly creamy at all though, and chewy as all get out. Nice dry bitterness without an overly sticky sweet aspect. I am amazed at the feel only because such big double IPA's are usually so sticky and cloyingly sweet. Not this bad boy.

Overall: (4.5)

- I am already buzzing pretty good just from the lovely 'after-warmth' of just a few small pulls from this beer for this review. It's still relatively balanced for such a heavy number, while not showcasing any hard and sharp alcohol flavors. The body is great, the feel is great, and it is quite drinkable. This might be one of the better double IPA's as of late. As if the regular Ruination wasn't already?

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

Pours a bright, sunset orange color with an off white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a thick ring of lacing. Smells of lots of pineapple and grapefruit, grass, tons of floral, mango, papaya, resin. Not getting much malt and maybe a hint of booze. Taste starts with grapefruit and floral notes. The middle brings lots of sweetness, as well as some breadiness; however, this just barely mellows out the hops. The finish is very big, but still complex. Tons of tropical fruit notes like mango, papaya, and pineapple. Definitely used citra hops in this. Big resin notes and accompanying bitterness. Some earthiness and grassiness. Not much malt to speak of, as the abrasive bitterness covers up the breadiness. The hefty sweetness is necessary to somewhat calm the finishing flavors. Decent amount of booziness along with a warming sensation. Full body with an oily and slick mouthfeel. Just punches you in the face with abrasive, bitter hops. Not for everyone, but I definitely dig it.

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

A: Really pretty orange-yellow color with two or three fingers of white head. The lacing is beautiful and the retention is top notch. Bubbles lazily work there way to the top of the glass. Top notch IPA in terms of appearance.

S: I can't tell if I'm smelling an IPA or just straight hops. The amount of citra coming out of my glass is simply absurd. Pine, orange, other citrus, resins, and oh did I mention it smelled like hops? Slight booze underneath, yet zero malts.

T: The taste keeps this trend of amazing hops going. Just an assault on the palate that does justice to the Ruination name. Some of the most pine I have ever tasted in an IPA. Big citrus notes, resins, and some booze. If you aren't ready to be destroyed by hops you might not enjoy this, but I sure did.

MF: Great level of carbonation paired with a light body. The bitter hop aftertaste lasts well after I enjoyed my last sips. I think it's very drinkable, and considering I drank this whole 22oz 10% ABV beer at the dinner table I'd say it passes the test.

O: I don't think I need to reiterate how impressed I was by this beer. I can't remember exactly what this cost, but I know it was less than $10 which is seriously a great deal. Don't let this pass you by.

Yes! This finally arrived here in Northern KY. Poured (eagerly) from a bomber into a New Belgium snifter. The pour is a fairly clear orange amber with a nice head and decent lacing. The nose is potent. Big fresh floral and pine aromas bully their way up your sinuses. I'm almost afraid to drink this, but like any brave BA I'm willing to face my fears. Cheers!

(glug glug)

Woah! This is one hoppy fargin beer! Huge, and I mean HUGE, pine and citrus flavors blow the lid off your palate right from the get-go. There is a lot of flavor here. I get honey, lemon, pine, grapefruit, and even green tea (?!). The malt is ever-present and balances it all out (barely). The finish is dry and leaves your mouth almost sticky with hop resin. Mouthfeel is firm, slick, and a bit creamy.

This beer is not for the faint of heart (or weak of palate). If you don't like hoppy beers or if you're new to craft, please leave this one be. Don't try it, because either you'll hate it and write some crappy review which drags down its score, or you'll love it and there will be that much less for the rest of us to enjoy. This isn't a hop bomb. It's a nuclear missile of hops.

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

Aroma: Lots of citrus zest up front (orange and lemon rind), a bit of Pine-sol, and a touch of hot alcohols on the nose. As the name has always implied, it presents itself as a big and bad mo-fo.

Appearance: Hazy amber pour with orange edging. Low white head with good retention and some nice legs.

Flavor: Big puckering citrus character up front. Any hint of caramel sweetness that I think I detect is quickly pounded out of my tongue by blistering piney and citrusy hop bitterness. Balance is firmly bitter (and the Grand Canyon is kind of a big hole) with a lingering pleasant powdery hop resin aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Slightly slick, a nice warming alcohol presence, and pleasant hop-derived astringency.

Overall impression: Lives up to the bill. I love it. Alcohol is kind of hot but given all the hop bitterness there is so much going on here it isn't a knock. Lots of complexity and so glad I had the chance to try it. I am officially ruined.

22oz bomber that I ended up splitting with a friend...this thing is a palate-wrecker. Sam Adams Perfect Pint.

A: Gold color, clear once the chill haze departs, large & creamy off-white head leaves some good lacing.

S: Holy hops Batman...this thing has an incredible nose full of hops. Tons of tropical fruit and citrus notes, piney resin, grapefruit pith, peach, mango, hemp oil, papaya, floral notes...powerful stuff.

T: Palate is wrecked; this thing is hugely bitter. All of the flavors transfer from the nose, there is grapefruit and orange/citrus rind, tropical fruit flesh, herbal piney hops, floral notes...seems to calm a little as it warms. Alcohol is detectable but it stays subdued.

MF: Creamy and medium bodied, bitter with a dry finish.

O: Its a showcase for hops, and a good one (I believe). A good beer to share IMO.

22oz bomber about 6 weeks old

L - Deep orange with a fluffy slightly honey colored head that dissipates quickly. Thick heavy syrup legs on the side of the glass as I swirl
S - slight citrus, heavy pine and astringent cat litter dankness.
T - Sweet, somewhat heavy malts with a refreshing piney burst. Surprisingly soft on the finish. It is bitter, but not crushing by any means. Very nicely balanced by the sweetness.
F - Rich creamy mouthfeel. Heavy, but in a good way, and dangerously smooth. Very fine, almost silky carb

Overall a big beer, but very well made and dangerously easy to drink

4.23/5  rDev -1.6%

Poured from a 22oz bottle with a bottled on date of 6/9/14; into a tulip.
Appearance - orange/dark gold, a slow but gorgeous parade of bubbles; the pour produces a thick, foamy white head that recedes quickly to a thin, bubbly layer. Lacing is decent.
Smell - dank hop aromas, citrus and tropical fruits, some floral notes, along with a little booze and candy!
Taste - aggressive hops up front, but a subtle sweetness that tames it slightly. The 10.8 ABV is noticeable, but I dig it! Smooth but strong!
Feel - no doubt a hop bomb and a strong alcohol presence, but so full and flavorful!
Overall - what I expected; aggressive yet laid back, strong yet subtle; when I want a strong, hop forward ale without compromising taste...Stone delivers!

Had this (along with other dipa's) at a East VS. West Dipa Head to Head Showdown I hosted on 8/27/13

Round 5 East Unearthly West RuinTEN

Overall it came down to personal preferance which to me I enjoyed unearthly a little bit better... stone was a cleaner nice hoppyness and bitterness with a sweet malt back to it.. it was absolutely glorious... I will definitely be buying it again next year. RuinTEN placed 6th out of ten spots.

Original review 4.8

Bottle said: enjoy by 9/12/13 drinking on 7/2/13... that's about right...
Drink hoppy beers as fresh as you can... reject old ones.

Poured into Sniffer glass...

Niiice 1 1/2 finger bone white head..super thick... lacing just stayed on the glass like it was glue... did not move... super clear amber reddish hue that was crystal clear with bubbles dancing to the top. The best looking dipa I've seen yet.

Smell was on the okay side, more hop forward than citrusy but overall a great smell.

Taste was out of this world like all of stones IPA's... very hoppy bite at first that absolutely takes over everything... slight citrus but mostly hop oriented tastes. Alcohol is more prevalent in the taste than any other stone ipa I've had but I like it.... nothing annoying or overpowering but it's there.

Completely smooth crisp ending with hop smack all over the aftertaste...

Overall a phenomenal IPA but I'd give a slight nod to the enjoy by ipa from stone... very slight... still liked it better then the reunition one.. a definite must try

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

The pour was a cloudy burnt orange with an average (1-2 finger) off white frothy head that reduced down to a large puddle and collar of residue, and had good spotty lacing.

The aroma was of pine and resin hops, grain malts and a soapy yeast with notes of citrus (grapefruit and orange), caramel and a mild apricot sweetness.

The taste was a little sweet and a tad bitter with a hint of caramel and a mild fruity ester at first, and then had a serious hoppy citrus bitterness along with a mild alcohol tinge at the end. The flavor lasted an very long time after the swallow with a nice bitter and mild sweet hoppiness settling in on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was between light and medium in body with a dry yet slightly oily texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall a very well put together brew with tons of flavor and a smooth feel, which just complimented the mildly sweet bitterness...

Stone RuinTen IPA (Formerly 10th anniversary Ruination)

200th review! Glad it was a worthy brew for it!

Look - Poured into two Dogfish Head IPA glasses as a bottle share this poured a clear filtered copper with an amber hue. Sports a full foamy head that dissipates at a medium pace, retains some, and leaves chunks and rings of lacing. Great looking brew.

Smell - Extraordinarily pungent bitter hops similar to the oniony Summit ones used in some of the West Coast brews I have tried, but there are definitely more than just that particular flavor. Deep citrus resin behind that. Slight malt tones provides the higher ABV.

Taste - Malt is there in a nice wave with some sweetness, then hops ride in super bitter nice blasty IBU as well as an alcohol kick, then they slowly ride out but wreck the palate on the way out.

Mouthfeel - Sits slightly dry and not overly boozy, which is extremely well done. Remarkably drinkable. More light-bodied than medium-bodied. Again, extremely well done here.

Overall - What a fantastic brew from Stone, we went and picked up another one the next day. Ballsy and bitter but well blended with a touch of sweet, an absolute decimation of the palate.

enjoy by 8.23.12 faintly etched on the neck

A: poured into a Duvel Tulip to a deep golden orange with two fingers of slightly off white head
S: smells intensely hoppy with notes of grapefruit, resinous pine sap, and a bit earthy. not much sweetness to be picked up over the hop aroma
T: indeterminate hop bitterness up front before the flavors of pine, citrus and tropical fruit starts to shine. slightly bready malt presence and a touch of caramel sweetness struggles to come forward before being beaten down by the hops. Slight earthyness in the middle and the malt base kicks in toward the end a bit more but the bitterness remains. aftertaste is more bittersweet hops that are a bit herbal
M: slightly prickly carb keeps the beer lively on the palate but this one is still fairly thick but not quite syrupy.
O: every bit as delicious as the original and kicked up a notch. I'd like to see this one show up again from time to time.

22 Oz bomber 2012 Limited
Poured into a snifter

I got the last two at the sixth beer store I checked

A- Pours incredibly hazy golden orange. It had a half a finger off a slightly off white head that didn't stick around long at all. Left behind some impressive alcohol legs.

S- Holy Moses, this beer wreaks. Insane hop profile, there's a sweet assault of citrus notes, A ton of pineapple, mango, lemon, grapefruit, some pine in there as well. An onslaught of hop glory, this is not a well balanced IPA at all.

T- A massive bitterness up front and I mean massive. It takes a while for the flavors to set in over all the bitter mayhem. This beer has a malty backbone cleverly hidden under a mountain of glorious hops. It is sweet, there is some caramel and a little breaddyness. This beer is however about hops, and its incredibly intense. All the above mentioned citrus notes make a full scale appearance. It also has some resinous, skunky hop flavors and a great deal of pine. I cant taste any alcohol. A hop forward beer is an understatement.

M- BITTER, extremely, which I love but is so intense that It may cover up some of the beers flavors. Other then that, this beer is actually pretty easy drinking for an IPA drinker. Its bitter, full bodied, slightly warming and pretty easy going for a monster.

O- If Ruination ruins palates, I think a fitting name for this beer should be Annihilation. I hope stone decides to put this on a once a year release schedule. This is a hop heads deity.

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!!

Stone RuinTen.

Aye. Not so often you get a hold of a ledgend around these parts. So naturally when I saw it on the shelf at my local craft store ( Jake's Liquor in Monroe, Michigan just off the Dixie I-75 exit ) I was inclined to pick a bomber up. $10 you say? Well I believe in you. NOW PROVE YOURSELF * FINAL BOSS FIGHT MUSIC STARTS * .

Look - Slow pours yields a very clear amber, almost as clear as your girlfriends last STD test as requested by myself to ensure you haven't been sticking Dick Johnson into any blimey skanks. Carbonations appears to be on low to medium depending on how you pour. Head is a well retained two fingers.

Smell - Overly ripe banana is a large player in this aspect followed by a boss level dosage of maltyness and grapefruit juices.

Taste - Yep, those overly ripe bananas pull a large margin of the weight in this aspect. Tropical juice notes are there, although flat on their faces . Malts come in and eventually get shot down by the reaper invasion that is my taste buds. 4.

Feel - Well rounded though moderately creamy bodied with a low to medium amount of carbonation. Really don't have much else to say as the tropical notes linger and the alcohol is quite present. 4

Overall - Well.......I expected better for such a supposed legendary brew. But, you must remember rating inflection based on a beers status, how hard it is to get, whether somebody is a " yes man "( IE willing to suck a dick and a golf ball through a garden hose to please a higher point-wise ranking BA than themselves ) which I notice a lot of people are...y'know,despite the in depth reviews I've given you over the last three years apparently I'm not even an ' advocate ' yet? why? Because I won't suck a dong for the latest likes in which swill are you drinking now #737744747?.. anyway, would I have again? Lol not at this price per bomber. Remember that banana esque flavor in all Stone beers? Well yeah it dominates this one. Would be better off with an Enjoy By. 4.

A: Pours a bright flourescent orange with sticky lacing at the edges and a dusty powdering at the top.

S: Aroma of rich sticky clementine, orange peel and pine. Some sweet malt but a powerful hop presence sets the tone.

T: Wow, this is a sticky IPA! Sweet but bittered with a fury that I have not tasted in a while. Sweet clementine bitterness along with sticky pine resin. Malt backbone is relatively nice pale malt and a crystal malt sweetness . The finish is slightly bitter but not tannic , just earthy.

M: Highly carbonated for a 10.8% abv. not stinging and medium bodied.

O: Overall this is delicious. Id be hard pressed to find a DIPA fresh right now in the New England area that is more bitter and refreshing at the same time as this is right now.

Appearance: Golden cloudiness with a small white head that quickly fades to the rim. Decent lacing.

Smell: Hops, malt sweetness, booze, pear, strawberry hard candy, caramel.

Taste: Big bitter hops throughout the totality of the drink. There's some malt that almost balances it out. I'm getting a garlicky taste in the middle and lingering into the finish. There's a unique bread and buttery quality here that lends unique smoothness to a brew this big.

Mouthfeel: On the heavier side, not much carbonation.

Overall: Not bad, just nothing that knocked my socks off.

A - Pours a light amber, creamy off white head one finger.

S - A lot, I mean a lot of citrus hops on the nose. Grapefruit and pineapple is what I'm getting. A lot of malt in the background.

T - Grapefruit & orange peel leading into sweet pineapple. A bit of pine resin. Finishes with a bitter ending. Nice malt balance as well.

M - Medium bodied, oily finish, great carbonation.

O - I'm pleasantly surprised! Loving this beer! It's so well balanced that I can see a lot of palettes gravitating towards it.
