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.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a Tulip.

A - Deep tangerine color with about 2 fingers of pillowy white head, lots of small bubbles and fairly good retention for a near 11% beer. Very clear with lots of bubbles streaming up, nice lacing.

S - You are first hit by an awesome tropical(mangos, pineapples, apples) grapefruity hop smell. You then begin to smell all of the sweet caramel and toffee malts. Little bit of pine and mild booze smell. Awesome!

T - Tropical fruits are first followed by some bitter sweet grapefruit. About mid mouth you get the sweet malts to clean things up followed by some bitter pine and some warming alcohol.

M - Full bodied almost syrupy, perfect carbonation and a nice smooth slick feel all the way through.

O - I love it! This is extremely hoppy and there are not nessisarily enough sweet malts to balance it out. That being said this is supposed to be a hop monster that isn't necessarily balanced, however it is very balanced considering what it is. I will have to try and get a few more of these for those nights when I want my pallet blown away.
