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.

3.81/5  rDev -11.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a golden, caramel copper in color with a half inch of thick, frothy foam atop. Lots of lacing as you drink. Carbonation levels look to be on the lower side. As with most Stone brews, this is one beautiful, inviting beer to look at.

S: An assault of sweet, caramel malts and intense piney citrus hops singe the nostrils. Lots of floral, soapy notes in there, but a definite underlying malt presence to balance it out a bit.

T: Tame up front with sweet caramel and toffee malts this one quickly turns bitter with an all out hop assult on the taste buds which intensify and linger long into the aftertaste with a little bit of heat from the alcohol. I imagine this is what it tastes like to chew on a hop flower. Pine, citrus, tropical fruits and spice... hop resin everywhere.

M: Full bodied with light carbonation, tons of hop resin which makes this one quite sticky, almost syrupy. Fairly drinkable for it's heaviness, but the acidity gets to your stomach after awhile.

O: This is exactly what I would expect as a Double IPA from Stone. That said, I get it, it's hoppy, but at some point there must be some restraint; or perhaps I'm just getting tired of the West coast hop-bomb. Too much of a good thing, as they say, but sure to please those with less sensitive taste buds.
