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.

Bomber poured twice into a Medieval Manor pilsner glass.

A: Poured a honey orange color with 1 finger of creamy off-white head. Hazy with bubbles actively rising to the top. Rings of lacing coat the sides of the glass.

S: Like being hit in the face with a grapefruit. Hate to say this, but I'm getting a bit of cat pee in the nose too. Starts to get pretty strong as it warms.

T: Oh god it's... actually not quite as bitter as I remember Ruination being. Obviously still pretty bitter up front, but there's a seriously sweet, candylike malt hiding behind
that.

Bitterness lingers a long time. Like an ex who still hangs out with friends of your and so you still see them sometimes and hey, fuck you, I was going to go chill with Chris at Pat's house tonight so go back to your stupid little apartment in Brockton.

The cat pee leaks into the taste and gets a bit more pronounced as it warms.

M: Thick and resiny. I mean, very thick. There isn't much of a difference here between this and actual maple syrup.

O: I have no idea why I like this so much. I hate IPAs and everything about this is a punch in the fucking face. Well, I guess this is why I don't give up on certain styles even if I'm just not that into them. Occasionally you find one that really reaches out and smacks you.
