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.

By the way, also had this beer the night before on-tap at Hops & Pie, Denver.
As a lover of IPA's-- and beer in general-- this offering is brilliant.
Full, syrupy body, just exploding with tropical-fruity goodness and hops bite. The extra malt brings a lot to the table, yet the alcohols is not too overpowering. Finish is surprisingly smooth and easy, which makes this amazingly drinkable. I cannot say enough about this beer. The way the head retains and sticks to the glass is just awe-inspiring. I'm not even a huge Stone fan in general, so there's no agenda here. This is simply one of the best IPA / Double IPA's I've ever had, if not the best. And I've had most of the West Coast / Rocky Mountain region, plus a few from Vermont and New York.
Get this beer while you still can! Cheers!

This is a Damn good beer I must say. Much enjoyment comes from drinking any stone beer to me, this one as well as double bastard, is the ice cream on the cake however.

A - deep amber color, somewhat cloudy. Small head that is foamy with some lacing.

S - it smells like runiation with some more piney smelling hops. The smell I'm getting is sweet malts, and piney hoppy goodness. Smell promising.

T - DAMN is all I can say. But seriously, this is delicious. Again, this also tastes like ruination with a more pronounced hop flavor as well as the addition of pine. Very resinous and sticks with you after just one sip. Sweet malts, but not too sweet, being balanced out by the bitter hoppy goodness.

M - Medium to high level of stickiness and is chewy thick but not like a good stout thick, just right for an DIPA.

O - Loving this beer. I may be biased as I enjoy every stone beer there is, but I tried to give it an unbiased review. If you're a piney hop lover and love a perfectly BALANCED DIPA, definitely get one of these. Right now is the time to get one and if you want to get some, I'd recommend stocking up with as many as you can grab since this isn't year round.

Thanks again stone for your WONDERFUL take on yet, ANOTHER practically perfect beer.

A- Light amber with a thick creamy head that is slightly off-white

S- Could literally smell this beer from a foot away! Powerful malt backbone in the aroma with nice resinous hoppy smells.

T- The malty goodness is apparent to me first while the spicy hop flavor comes on the back side. Slight alcohol burn on the finish.

M- Big bodied beer! First sip is enough to coat the mouth, carbonation on this beer is also subdued.

O- Wow this beer definitely impresses, huge malt profile but the hops still manage to shine on the back end. Definitely a hearty sipper of a beer. Honestly left me somewhat speechless on the review as I spent more time just sitting back and enjoying each sip for everything that it is rather than put a lot of thought into breaking it down..
