Availability: Summer

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 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle on 6/28/12 served in a tulip.

Pour: mostly clear deep amber with some carbonation bubble. Two finger off-white head.

Smell: Loads of piney hops. Some sweetness in there too.

Taste: Bitter pine followed by citrus and caramelly sweetness. Way more balanced than I was expecting.

Mouthfeel: Kinda syrupy, but nice. Definitely a big beer.

Overall: Really, really tasty. Would love to see Stone make it year round or yearly. Would definitely buy again fresh.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Aroma: Low bready malt aroma. Hop aroma is medium-high tangerine juice, lime peel, orange creamsicle and a little bit of pine overall medium sweet. Hint of alcohol slightly solventy. No DMS, No diacetyl.

Appearance: Light golden with darker highlights. Medium rocky head.

Flavor: Light sweet clean malt flavor reminiscent of bread crusts. Overall sweetness is medium. Hop bitterness is medium, medium-high bitterness in the finish. Hop flavor is medium mostly citrus peel. Alcohol flavor is medium and much more prominent when it warms. No DMS, no diacetyl.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium-low carbontion. Alcohol warming is present. Finish is not astringent.

Overall: Big ipa that hides its alcohol well. Some of the hop character is masked by the solventy alcohol. But overall a really well done big alcohol ipa.

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

Brilliant copper orange in color with excellent clarity. Poured with a thick, cream colored foam that slowly reduced to a wispy cap that left a trace of sticky lacings on the glass. Rip grapefruit, tropical fruit, and sticky sweet malt aromas with floral hop and boozy notes. Medium bodied with subdued carbonation and a slick oily feel. Intense flavor of ripe pineapple, grapefruit, and orange rind with a sticky sweet caramel backbone. Tangy floral hop flavors through the middle that transition to boozy, light pine hop flavors at the end. Finished with lingering floral and pine hop flavors and a definitive booziness. An all time new favorite.
