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.

On-tap at Prime 16; enjoyed side-by-side with Double Dry Hopped Ruination.

A: Clear, pale orange-amber body with nearly an inch of ultra-fine, creamy tan head. Great retention and lace. Stunning.

S: Intense. Pine and grapefruit are both front and center, with some deeper citrus fruitiness and some distinct Christmas tree resin underneath. Not too much booze. Terrific.

T: Surprisingly dull here, with some malt sweetness combining with the citrusy hops up front and the pininess relegated to pure bitterness on the big, boozy finish. It's really good, but not as stellar as the aroma.

M: Creamy medium body with moderate carbonation. A bit oily, but nice.

O: The aroma alone is worth the price of admission, but I really wish that hadn't ramped up the ABV quite so much - this beer should be all about the amazing hops, and the booze just became a distraction.

Although there's nothing super-special about its appearance, the 10th ann. IPA has a very nice orange-amber colour that puts it just above average. The smell is pungent - loads of piney hops. It doesn't prepare you for the intense up-front malt blast, perfectly balanced by the even more intense bitter finish. Very piney. Very heavy, quite dry. Overall, a great example of the style. I would definitely buy this again if only they sold it in Quebec....

Bottle into tulip. Purchased in Buffalo at Consumers Beverages.

A- Slightly chill hazed dark orange pour with a finger width, soapy, sticky, off white head. Lacing is good.

S- Massive amounts of grapefruit, mandarin oranges, pineapple and lime with bitter resinous pine in the backing. Very little in the way of sweetness. Slight floral that reminds me of dandelions. Very lop sided on the way of bitterness (what did you expect anyway?)

T- Oh my, this is something else. Full on onslaught of pine and grapefruit. Orange and limes with a huge wallop of floral and just pure fresh squeezed hop nectar. Slight sweetness but a juicy lingering, bitter finish.

M- Slightly heavier than normal. A little on the chewy side which is nice. Alcohol is hidden and the finish is lingering.

O- I guess the question is "How do you make Ruination better?" Simple answer is "double the hops!" They've done that and hit a home run. Can't wait to see what the 15th and 20th anniversary brings!

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

Pours out slightly hazy yellow/amber with 1/2 finger of white suds. Some lacing here and you can tell this is a 10%er.
Aroma is sticky pine/floral hop and mango/grapefruit and a slight alcohol tinge. There is a hint of alcohol also.
Taste is very bitter at first but as it warms you get a mango/pine initial flavor then the bitter hop hits and overwhelms the palate. Too bad the mango/grapefruit couldn't stick around some more. Some alcohol here.
The mouthfeel is very clean and dry as the brew makes its way down the throat. The aftertaste is bitter hop and some sugar malt holding on for quite a while.
Overall this one is slightly higher than the 4 I gave it but not more than 4.25 which is where I would put this nice big IPA.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter

A Pours a hazy amber color topped with a white head.

S Lots of tropical fruits, sweet citrus and some bittersweet grapefruit.

T Taste is about the same as the nose with lots more grapefruit, citrus and tropical fruits. Lots of hop flavor with not too much bitterness.

M Medium body and carbonation. Smooth though.

Overall this is a great IPA that I'm quite glad I picked up. Definitely better then the regular Ruination and quite and excellent way to celebrate 10 years of a great beer.

I never thought I'd be saying this, but I'm currently holding an IMPERIAL version of Stone's Ruination IPA. Craziness. This anniversary edition has 3% more alcohol on the bill, thanks to the addition of more malt and double the amount of hops, including a one pound dose of both centennial and citra hops for dry-hopping. Yowza.

Ruination is one of my all time favorite IPAs. Do these extra additions throw off the balance of perfection? We will soon find out. I'm pouring from a bomber with the obligatory badass silk screen gargoyle artwork and a long diatribe on the back, which is strangely not about how unworthy we all are to be drinking this beer. The best by date is 8/23/2012 and I poured this into an imperial pint glass.

A: This beer pours a clear amber/orange with a thick white head with good lacing and retention. Looks inviting.

S: Smell is, surprise, hops. It's very tropical and dank.

T: Wow...this one is intense. It starts with waves of orange, pineapple and mango crashing into the palate. About halfway through, there's a nice pine and slight bitterness. Finishes bitter, as well. There's more malt expression in this beer, but it's pretty much required due to the insane amount of hops.

M: Mouthfeel is what you would expect from an 11% IPA: thick, viscous, oily, and slick. For 11%, there is surprisingly little alcohol burn (probably because it's overpowered by hops.) It drinks easy enough, especially for a strong and intense IPA.

O: My palate is officially shot for the night. This beer nails a perfect hop intensity with a malt balance. I believe it's better than the normal Ruination. Think what you want about Stone, but you cannot deny their passion for beer. This beer perfectly embodies their love for beer and dedication to brewing.

Stone has always been one of my top breweries, and this beer solidifies their position at near the top of my list. Get this one while you can, drink it fresh, and cheers!

A - Pours a very hazy golden orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing.

S - Aroma is full of grapefruit, peach, tropical, and citrus hops with some pine hops, caramel malts, and a bit of biscuit.

T - Starts off with a mix of grapefruit, apricot, tropical and citrus hops with lots of bitterness and some sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, lots of resiny pine hop and more bitterness comes through with a bit of biscuity malt. The finish is a mix of grapefruit and pine hops with a good amount of bitterness and a bit of sweet caramel malts.

M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and bitter finish.

D - Very drinkable. Really nice strong hop profile with tons of bitterness. Very tasty.

Pours clear, vibrant orange with a big white head. Lots of lacing.

Could smell this as soon as I cracked it..Big juicy pineapple, orange, grapefruit, some pine, big deep hop aromas.

Immediate hop bomb on the palate. Huge citrus again, some malty backbone with the sweetness, then the massive slapping lingering bitterness. Slight warming from alcohol.

A sipper through and through. Dry finish.

This is a must have for hop heads.

(I must note that I had the second release of this beer and the smell was much boozier. Tingle-the-nose boozy as it warmed.)

Drank from a 1pt. 6 fl.oz. bottle purchased at Pemberton Farms, Cambridge, MA
Served in a snifter

The beer poured a cloudy, glowing, peachy-amber color. A bubbly, creamy, two-finger head of light khaki froth topped the liquid. Large drippy blocks of lacing trickled down glass. Although it initially appeared that the beer was unfiltered, the chill haze soon dropped and the body turned completely transparent.

The aroma was outstanding. Tons of peach and apricot notes. Tropical fruits were apparent. Mango and papaya were both detectible. Some candied orange peel and ruby red grapefruit came through as well. A fair dose of caramel malts lent the beer a pleasant sweetness. All in all, remarkably fragrant.

Like the aroma, the flavor profile was also super hoppy. However, it seemed to be significantly drier and pithier than the nose. Caramel malts appeared on the front end before the hops took over. The hops were fruity, bold and assertive. Tons of grapefruit pith. Some candied orange peel was noticeable. Peachy. The finish was super piney, bitter and dry. Tons of sticky, resiny hop oils. A touch astringent. At 10.8% ABV, the alcohol was remarkably well buried.

The mouthfeel was plush, smooth and creamy. Supple. Medium bodied with a fairy standard, moderate effervescence. I was hoping for a bit more heft to this.

As the bottle states, Ruination was a forerunner in the world of bottled double IPAs. This beer managed to kick things up a couple of notches. Congratulations on ten years Stone. Hop heads rejoice!

Well, not much of a Ruination fan to say the least, but heck, let's give this a try anyways. Liked the thimbleful I had at a tasting, so half a bomber is now on tap. So to speak. 22 oz. bomber, wiz wife.

Pour is an unclear orange. Nose is an improvement over the base right away, nice citrus, tropical fruit trees, the hops are nice & bright.

Ruination 10th Anniversary IIPA, my friend, it's hard to believe you're related to that sad-sack IPA that shares your name. WD-40 oiliness is the first thing to impress the tongue: dripping. Liquid hops. The taste isn't as good as the nose, more bittering than flavor, but there are streaks of flowery Hawaii that come & go quicker than a Higgs-Boson. I'm picking up (& I'll note my wife is not) a faint metallic aftertaste that's harshing my mellow, too. Ton of malt sweetness that overwhelms the hops at the bottom of the hill. Certainly easy to sip, however.

This is a good beer; taste doesn't quite live up to the promise of the nose & the mouthfeel, but quite nice nonetheless.

A 22 ounce bottle split into tulips.

Pours a bright copper color with about an inch or so of fluffy, bubbly off-white head. Solid retention and gobs of lacing. The aroma is of orange and grapefruit citrus, earthen hops, wet dirt and grass, and some bitter and floral hops. It tastes of lemon, orange, and grapefruit citrus galore. Some earthen notes in the middle, and some sweeter candied fruits. A bit of boozy ethanol towards the end. Mouthfeel is crisp, bitter, full-bodied in terms of flavor yet thin in consistency. Finishes clean with some warming ethanol. Overall, this was a great showcase of the glory of hops, but the amount of ethanol pulling through was a bit of a disappointment. It seemed to dominate the aftertaste, and really stand out in the mouth. A lot of great things going for this one, but just too much raw alcohol coming through for me.

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.

Pours a clean orange-ish to yellow in color with a light tan head. In the aroma, big, gritty orange citrus hops. In the taste, big, aggressive orange citrus hops, with a small alcohol note in the end. A mellow hop bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry orange citrus hop and a small alcohol not in the aftertaste. Big hops, small alcohol, that is hop a imperial IPA should be!

22oz bottle into a couple of russian river goblets

Pours a delightful honey golden color with a bubbly eggshell white head.

Heavy pine and citrus smell that awakens your nose. Blends into a sweet honey and lemon

Goes in with a lot of might. Heavy earthy taste slowly turbs into a wonderfully hoppy bitterness. Finishes with just a tinge of sweetness

Not too overbearing. Definitely a treat to be savored

A deep amber pours from the bottle and trails off into lighter golds and amber once in the glass. A half finger head is white with large soapy bubbles that dissipate very quickly. Lacing is thick with a slight alcoholic "leg" to this beer.

Sweet, sweet crystal malt on top lingering with biscuit and caramel. This is followed quickly by floral scents. Lots of stickiness to the scent. The floral aromas are followed by a bright grass scent that trails off.

Holy Shit! Bright burning, resinous hops up front but balanced so well by the malt bill that this is just too drinkable! Flashes of orange, lemon and lime appear on the tongue but they're carried so well by caramel and sweet biscuit that the burning almost never happened. It begs for another drink!

Slightly chewy in the mouth but the burning hops take away from this and clear it out extremely fast. One of the lighter DIPAs that I've had (surprisingly).

Amazing. This beer is mind blowingly good and if I could buy this year round, I would. Never been a huge Stone fan but after this, I am a convert!

Big bold DIPA, hits the mark. Wafts hop aroma. Translucent body with enormous soapy head. Smooth and big 100 IBU territory. Reinvigorates a romance for the style.Fruity tartness.
Very drinkable and well integrated, though with pineapple acid it is a sipper.A bit boozy. Doug's bottle.

Serving Type - 22oz bottle

Appearance - Dark burnt orange with a nice 1 inch white head, real sticky lacing.

Smell - Wow, huge piney, grapefruity, sweet hops. Some malts and slight sugars but really overboard hop aroma, amazing.

Taste - As expected, bitter cascade hop crush! Very bitter, very strong, and yet some sweetness. Malts are barely noticable behind this hop monster. Alcohol is present and adds some warm at the finsh. A hop heads dream.

Mouthfeel - Your tounge gos numb as soon as you take a drink. Mouth is puckered, coated with hops and bittered to hell. Palate is wrecked, bittered and left dry. Finish is real bitter and dry.

Overall - What a monster of a beer. I got to drink a bottle a few weeks ago before this one and it was even more intense. Still, even now this is a monster. You must love hops, not looking for a balance between malts and hops cause this is a straight up hopbomb. Lets pray this becomes a annual release at least. Amazing.

Appearance: Hazy orange, good head.

Smell: Big sweet grapefruit and pine aroma.

Taste: Sweet malt body, citrusy. Mild bitter finish, much milder than regular Ruination.

Mouthfeel: Somewhat light feel (for a 10% beer).

I like regular Ruination, but I like this special edition better. The 10th anniversary version isn't as tongue-punishing bitter, has more of a malt sweetness backbone to it, which is what I prefer. A little more balanced than the standard stuff. Very good.

A: 3/4" cream coloured head over cloudy amber liquid.

S: Like a forest: pine and grassy hops.

T: Lemon, grapefruit, pine and grassy hops dominate the taste profile, the malt backbone really takes a back seat on this one.

M: Medium to thick viscosity, quite resiny, with a medium level of carbonation and just a touch of drying. I suspect the drying is from the hops and not the alcohol.

O: One of the best Imperial IPAs I have ever had, Stone has hit another one out of the park.

A- beautiful looking beer. Coppery amber color with a finger and a half of tightly bubbled off white head. Superb retention with solid lacing.

S- leafy woody hops with notes of orange peel and sticky pine sap. Substantial hop oil characteristics with a resiny finish on the nose. What malt!?!? Ok there is a smidge of dry shortbread cookie like malt drowning under the pile driver of hops in this beer.

T- Bittersweet on the palate at first with a sugar cookie like malt and leafy hops. It then transitions into a tongue blistering bitter with notes of orange peel, woody pine and resiny hop oil. Noticeable alcohol with a lingering hop bitterness on the finish. Palate ruined? Check... Good job Stone.

MF- slick oily mouthfeel with a heavy body. Average even carbonation,

D- drinkability be damned with this beer. It says it ruins your palate on the bottle.

Poured from a bomber into a tumbler pint, the beer is a vibrant, bright, luscious, orange-copper coloring with a frothy, foamy, tightly packed off-white head that sits a solid inch and doesn't move. Fantastic. Aromas of resiny, delicious, fresh hops with a cedar, spicy, and rich blending of characteristics. Solid caramel sweet backbone and citrus blast on the nose, as well. The flavors are amazingly balanced. The hops come flying through, but don't overpower, which is an impressive feat. Citrus characteristics of grapefruit and tangerine are joined by passion fruit, pineapple, and mango to give an entirely tropical fruit feel to accompany the resiny, rich, bitter, and peppery hops presence. Very balanced, and rides a very smooth, slick body. Bitter and slightly astringent aftertaste cleans the palate and dries the mouth, inviting another mouthful. Slightly dry, very bitter finish that dares you to keep drinking. Surprisingly smooth and drinkable for a 10.8% ABV and a hop punch that really delivers drink after drink.

I very much looked forward to this beer and it didn't disappoint! Simply, this beer is phenomenal. I hope Stone makes this into a regular offering, maybe in 12oz bottles as it is a very big beer.

It starts with a great smell, it jumps out of the bottle.

The taste is amazing, the mouth goes through different stages as you take a sip. This beer coats the tongue like know other beer I have had.

The alcohol is well hidden, but no doubt this is a big beer.

I am not religious, but God Bless Stone :)! This is great stuff!

Drink By 8/28/13 (super fresh, actually got this pre release)
Poured into the Sierra Nevada/Dogfish IPA glass.

Appearance: (4.25)
Pours a transparent pale amber with a 3 fingers tall, off white head. The head has great retention and leaves gobs of sticky lacing down the sides of the glass as it recedes.

Aroma: (4.5)
Absolutely bursting with waves and waves of dank, tropical hops; I can pick up Grapefruit, pine needles and resin, mango, lemon, peach, passion fruit, and a huge earthy, dank garlic note. Just underneath the avalanche of hop aromatics, there is a somewhat bread-y and sweet malt presence. Wow, the hops are so in your face!

Taste: (4.5)
Enamel stripping hop oil straight to your palate; huge amounts of resinous pine, grapefruit, lemon and light peach. The hops slap your tongue with a resounding bitterness while the beer is just on your tongue, but just before your bitterness threshold is torn asunder, you're comforted by a big, chewy and bread-y maltiness. The beer finishes very dry and you're left with nothing but an obscene amount of hop resin and a faint breadiness naked on your tongue. Lingering notes of pine needles and grapefruit pith. To say this beer is merely bitter is a gross understatement. The only beer that I've had that leaves a stronger lingering bitterness is Palate Wrecker. Amazing! At nearly 11% ABV, there are some light alcohol astringencies in the back end as the beer warms.

Mouthfeel: (4.5)
Thick and heavy bodied with hop resin; oily in texture. Medium to high carbonation.

Overall: (4.5)
Stone has taken the original Ruination Imperial IPA , doubled it and thrown in some Citra hops to the dry hop regiment. What comes out is an incredible imperial (triple?) IPA that easily reaches its goal of making Stone's original Ruination Imperial IPA taste like a hoppy pilsener. This beer is not for the faint hearted or the hop fearful. Make no mistake, This beer will put hair your chest; this beer will ruin your palate almost like no other. Grab this HUGE IPA while you still can. Highly recommended.

Orange-amber color that is completely transparent. I love the way you can see right through this glass. 1/4 finger of head sustains and some lacing. An inviting and beautiful looking beer. One of the best looking DIPAs I have ever reviewed. Just as I suspected, very hop forward with the smell. Getting lots of pine, floral, citrus, some caramel, alcohol and esters. Lots of hops, as you would expect, but there is a substantial malt background that is present. This makes the beer more layered and complex. Alcohol is detected in the taste. Mouthfeel is somewhat moderate, with a great flow of carbonation from bottom to top. It does leave the mouth quite dry. Overall, I was really impressed with the appearance of this beer and of course the hoppiness and the great care that was taken into created a somewhat balanced beer. This is definitely a hop lovers beer, and I'm glad I got the chance to try it. Can't wait until the 20 year!

Picked up a bomber today from the Goodyear Total Wine for $5.99. Have had a hell of a time scoring a bomber! Best by 08.23.12.

Beer poured amber orange with solid white head that is leaving lacing behind.

Nose is a whopping amount of citrus and mango.

Taste is citrus and mango overwhelming an impressive pale and caramel malt backbone.

Mouthfeel is perfect, so chewy and full. Perfectly satisfying!

Overall this is awesome brew. I would love to be able to try a draft version of this given how solid a month old bottle is!
