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.

From a bomber into a tulip.

A-There is a small but persistent head. Light tan in color. The brew is cloudy with a golden/copper hue. The head goes away pretty quickly, but the collar remains.

S-An earthy mix of pineapple and sage. Light citrus flavors with a touch of spice and heat from the alcohol. The smell was pleasant, but not as inviting as say, the New Belgium/Alpine Super IPA. Ruination is an appropriate descriptor, I guess.

T-The flavors generally follow the smell, i.e., some pineapple, some piney sage. I found this one to be a little unbalanced on the bitter side and I also noticed a hint of off-putting onion flavor on the finish. Alcohol was definitely there.

M-Almost crisp, especially for an IIPA. Medium bodied with a touch of carbonation. I didn't find it to be as resinous as some super hop beers. The ABV and powerful flavor mean this is a sipper.

O-This was, as promised, ruinous of my palate, but unlike regular Ruination, which I enjoy, this was too unbalanced (on the bitter side) for my liking. Still, if you like powerful hops, this is worth a look.
