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.

4.65/5  rDev +7.9%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A: Amber with a small head

S: Divide hops by zero and measure the result. Seriously, the nose alone could knock some people out cold.

T: This is unbelievable. The hop concentration is so intense, you can't even fully comprehend what's going on in the first sip. Or the second. In typical ruination fashion, it's not terribly complex, but what's there is balanced and properly bitter. I would hazard a guess that it's 120+ IBU's but they've added a lot of malt to balance it out. I wish it were a bit more dry and a bit more complex but those are tiny complaints. This is a "world class" double IPA in its truest form. You can't explain the flavor profile in words.

M: Carbonation is on the low side, so you can experience the full effect. Stays out of the way, just the way I like it. Not terribly smooth, but that comes with the style.

O: One of the best examples of the double IPA example you can get your hands on, and at a bargain basement price. I don't know how they do it.

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.
