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.

Clear orange amber with moderate frothy tan head with great retention. Huge, resinous citrus and pine aroma. Big malt sweetness of bread and caramel tempered with huge hop notes of orange and pine. Long alcohol and hop linger. Silky smooth.

Unbelievably, this beer is balanced and smooth with huge hop flavor but not bittering. Like most of the new Stone beers, it is easily palatable. An amazing achievement considering the beer but it’s so sweet it’s almost a barleywine with just enough linger to remind you it’s Ruination. A good beer and I’m not sure exactly what I was expecting but frankly it’s a little disappointing considering the legacy of Ruination, it’s just a higher ABV version.
