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.

Really excited for this one, as Ruination was a staple in beginning my love for IPAs and DIPAs. Got this one today at a local shop, one bottle limit per customer.

A- Pours a really nice and clear orange/ amber color. Almost two finger's worth of an off-white head fades fairly quickly. Lots of lacing along the sides of the glass.

S- Wow, one of the nicest smelling beers I've had in recent memory. Tons of citrus and floral characters hit you as soon as the cap is popped on the bottle. Some pine notes round out the smell as well.

T- Taste is awesome as well. All hops here which was expected. Lots of pine in the taste, with some citrus, grapefruit characters as well.

M- Medium bodied and bitter, with a dry finish. The alcohol is definitely apparent yet it drinks easy for a nearly 11% ABV.

Awesome beer, and glad I seeked it out and got one. Lives up to the hype for me. One of the better DIPAs I've had.

4.68/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance - Light copper, fair amount of head with an aggressive pour, good amount of lacing.

Smell - Strong tropical fruit smell, also smells spicy, citrusy, and a strong kind of boozy smell.

Taste - Strong tropical fruit taste, also spicy and a bit citrusy, matches the smell quite well. Syrupy malt taste, but its light for the abv, and really balances well with the awesome hop tastes I'm getting. Nice lingering bitter aftertaste, crisp but not overpowering at all for the beer style.

Mouthfeel - Light to moderate carbonation, slight hint of alcohol but not what a beer this strong should taste/feel like, but there is a fair amount of heat in it. Lingering taste, kind of resinous. The taste really lingers with you and with this beer that's a very good thing.

Overall - This is a great beer, definitely one of my favorites, out of my favorite beer style (double ipa) I really would recommend this beer to anyone who likes strong ipas, its expensive (8.99 for a bomber) and really that detracts more from the high overall I gave it. But at the end of the day you pay for what you get and what you're getting is a top notch beer... seriously, go buy it and try it now! I promise you that you'll have no regrets.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance- Everything you could want in a double IPA. Nice coloration somewhere between copper and tan.

Smell- Tropical scent with some citrus and grassiness.

Taste- This is seriously the dankest double IPA I have ever had. Ridiculous candied grapefruit and pineapple flavors with a lingering bitterness that is oh so right. Solid malt backbone that is of medium weight. Like most Stone brews, this is well balanced but simultaneously an excessive beer. Taste lingers for hours, not minutes.

Mouthfeel- Well carbonated, oily. So massively resinous, you will not be able to taste anything after drinking a glass of this stuff. Absolutely coats the mouth.
