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.

4.19/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a chilled British pub pint glass.

Appearance 4.0: Poured out a deep, golden amber with a smallish (1/5") head that quickly faded. What's really amazing about the color of this beer is that -when viewed from the side-- it seems to fade from dark amber to lighter amber from the top to the bottom of the glass. Beautiful.

Smell 4.25: Inviting and rare bouquet. I could smell the hops from this baby once my big shnozz got a foot away from it. As I drew closer, my nose went through many different hop varieties and they were all dependent upon my distance from the liquid! Once I brought it in to normal distance, the overwhelming smell is light pine and fresh grapefruit. Just wonderful.

Taste 4.25: Wow! The second the liquid hit my mouth I tasted that wonderful hop alkaline flavor. Front is actually somewhat dry, with a huge wave of hoppy goodness. I taste pine, subdued chlorophyll, citrus... . Middle is almost a burning sensation of deep caramel off-set with a light and drying punch of hops coming in from both sides of the palate. Finish is velvety smooth with more hops kicking your palate around like it was a soccer ball. So many hop flavors to wade through here that it takes a long time to sort them out! Aftertaste was long and went through several stages of alkaline and hop fading until it hit a level that was almost salty tasting (!) and then finished off smoothly.

Mouthfeel: 3.75: Mouthfeel was good, but this amazing beer could have been that much better with a more creamy CO2 addition.

Overall 4.25: Outstanding indeed. Wonderful beer and there is absolutely no hint of the high ABV. This brew is imminently sessionable but brings so many unique and elitist flavor profiles to your humble glass. Highly recommended, but it ain't cheap ($8 for a 22 oz bottle).

4.24/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

appearance; hazy amber, with an abundance of tiny bubbles, thick, sticky, large head that has great retention.

smell; at first pour the aroma is off the hook citrus, and then a melody of orange peel, grapefruit, resin, slight belgian flavor, hint of alcohol.

taste; hop oil, grapefruit peel, hint of bread, hint of orange juice, hint of alcohol, hoppy bitterness in the finish.

mouthfeel; full body, creamy, slightly dry in the finish.

overall; tasty, satisfying, unique experience, reminded me of a hoppy pranqster.
