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.

Poured a deep clear amber. Minimal white head leaves some moderate lacing. The aroma is not overwhelming but has some nice depth with rich caramel malt tones balancing the aggressive hopping. The taste amplifies the aroma and is delicious. It is lighter bodied but not thin and is an excellent example of an imperial IPA.

4.46/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 1PT. 6 FL. OZ. bottle into a pint glass. BOTTLED ON 06/09/14.

Appearance: Pours a robust burnt orange body with a thick soft white head.

Smell: Fresh dank, fruity, citrusy hops. Orange mixed with pine. In true "Ruin" fashion, the malt is overwhelmed.

Taste: Delicious pine, citrus, and tropical hop flavor. A surprisingly decent sweet malt backbone.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth.

Overall: Not as mind blowing as my first Stone Ruination several years ago, but still robust as far as DIPAs go!
