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.

4.44/5  rDev +3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

22oz. bomber poured into a Burley Oak tulip

A: It is a cloudy/hazy amber brown that pours with a two finger head that diminishes fairly rapidly but has ok lacing.

S: Hops, hops, hops! This is a citrus bomb if ever there was one, but specifically grapefruit. It is like a tropical island in a glass, with just a hint of mowed lawn in there.

T: It is not what I expected at all, but I'm not sure exactly what I was expecting. From the get go it is just all hops, but it has a nice malt backbone to hold up and complement the complex hops here. There is actually quite a lot of malt, as if Stone somehow passed a hop threshold here and got back to sweet malt, unlike Mikkeller's 1000 IBU which passed the same threshold, but then the malt threshold and got a second hop wind. The hop profile here is very blended, it is a whirlwind of citrus and pine. The aftertaste is a smooth transition and thoroughly coats your mouth and leaves it with quite the sweet citrus taste.

M: The carbonation here is even throughout and has a nice level of coarseness.

O: Let me just say that Stone got me into beer with Ruination (especially IPAs) and I just missed this since I really got into beer in December 2012, but whole hog not until late February 2013, so I was disappointed that I missed this. I am glad I got to try it, but it seems that I prefer both Ruination and Enjoy By over this. I'm surprised out how good Stone is at brewing so many distinct IPAs. It really tastes like a combination of Enjoy By and Ruination.
