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.

4.24/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

22oz bottle purchased at Huckleberry’s in Spokane for $7.49. No bottled on or best by date, but the silkscreened gargoyle comes with a wreath bearing “2013” on it, so it’s obviously not too old.

Poured a hazy, orangey shade, with a big, beige head that took it’s time dropping in my oversized Sam Adams glass. Lots of lace.

Smells of citrusy hop goodness with a biscuity malt backbone.

Big, citrusy hop flavor, with a balancing bitterness that keeps it from tasting like boozy tropical fruit juice, unlike quite a few really big DIPAs. There’s a fairly large malt backbone to this beer, but it’s only there to provide balance to the huge amount of hops (5LBs per barrel, according to Stone), and doesn’t do much to call attention to itself. The huge amount of hop flavor really smacks the palate, so I’d advise anyone drinking this beer to do so after a meal, not with one, unless you’re not into tasting your food.

Big, resiny, sticky mouthfeel. You might have to go brush your teeth after drinking this if you don’t want to taste it for the rest of your day.

RuinTen is well named. This beer is a DIPA fan’s delight. Bad taste in your mouth? Then drink one of these bad boys (I can’t imagine more than one bomber per sitting), and it’ll be long gone. Not a session beer at all, but a great stand alone.

4.24/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

appearance; hazy amber, with an abundance of tiny bubbles, thick, sticky, large head that has great retention.

smell; at first pour the aroma is off the hook citrus, and then a melody of orange peel, grapefruit, resin, slight belgian flavor, hint of alcohol.

taste; hop oil, grapefruit peel, hint of bread, hint of orange juice, hint of alcohol, hoppy bitterness in the finish.

mouthfeel; full body, creamy, slightly dry in the finish.

overall; tasty, satisfying, unique experience, reminded me of a hoppy pranqster.
