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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

22 oz. bomber (bottled 6/14) poured into New Belgium globe glass.

A: Orange-ish copper, with a very slight head -- disappears very quickly, with some nice lacing.

S: Intense amount of floral hops and citrus flavors; comes off fairly dank overall.

T: Citrus and floral hops are extremely prominent, while there's also a significant malt backbone, too. Finish is bitter -- a bit harsher than last year's.

M: Warm, with some mild carbonation. Bitter finish after some moderate body.

O: Will admit, I'm a huge fan of this beer -- but really, it's excellent all-around. Packs a huge punch, but goes down fairly smooth. Smell and taste are nearly perfect. It's an excellent brew that puts most double IPAs to shame.
