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.

22oz brown bomber with a vintage date.

LOOK: Hazed over, amber glow, head perfection

SMELL: Orange pulp, resin, melon rind, grapefruit, alcohol, fresh grass, hemp oil

TASTE: Full body, creamy, resin, bitter, orange peel, palate ruined, faint breadiness, crackers, alcohol, esters, faintly solvent, hoppiness rules, bitter hoppy finish

WTF, happy anniversary to a beer that has taken over my palate time and time again and this is what we get ... a beer that is a palate destroyer. LOL, thank you Stone. Gratz!!

Poured from the bomber into a very large snifter.

A: The beer is a dark and hazy amber/reddish orange colr. Head was off white and gained a substantial size. Settled to a thick foam after a few minutes with sticky lacing all down the sides of the glass.

S: Beautiful smell of fresh citurs and some berry and melon. Very crisp smelling. Citrus dominates. There is a light spice and honey in there as well. Awesome smelling beer.

T: Up front seems very balanced, with a big bready malt character to keep things honest. Seems drizzled with honey. Hops of course pack a wallop. Very dry but also somehow sappy with some peels in there to add a nice crisp character. Very sticky feeling but leaving a dry floral finish. Overall surprisingly balanced. The honey flavor is consistent throughout.

Overall: This isn't the straightforward hop bomb that I was expecting. there are nuances of sweetness and malt all throughout. There is definitely a hop punch, but with that much hop in the mix they have really compensated in the other direction as well.

Can be a bit cloying, but overall a good beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clear amber with a very nice head that sticks beautifully and leaves plentiful shards behind

Smell: Tropical fruit (mango, apricot and grapefruit) with a floral edge

Taste: Very sweet and malty, up front, with a load of sugary flavors; by mid-palate, the edgy hops arrive, delivering a very bitter, citrusy character; quite sticky in the finish, though the hops are still dominant

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; somewhat sticky

Overall: I know some folks love this, but I find many of Stone's beers way too sticky to by enjoyable as I like a drier IPA profile; for the style (and accepting the stickiness for what it is) this is a very nice brew

22 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A- Clear dark orange, nice fluffy white head.

S- Earthy hops with a slight caramel malty backend.

T- The hops really hit you. Balanced this beer is not (although who expects an IIPA to be balanced?!). It took me a few sips to start enjoying this, the first couple were overwhelmed with bitterness. Eventually I got some earthy, floral hops with some citrus on the back and front ends.

M- Nice creamy medium body. Great carbonation.

O- A good solid IIPA. I don't think it quite deserves the praise it gets due to it's complete lack of balance. While 'bitter' is a flavor, I hoped for more complexity.

Poured into a snifter out of a 22oz bomber.

Appearance is a slightly hazy dark orange with a tiny bit of lace on top in place of a head.

The smell is absolutely wonderful. A wonderful mix of pine and citrus. Lots of pineapple. Just a hint of alcohol. A very inviting aroma.

The flavor is just a wall of hops. Unbelievable bitterness with the pine and citrus halfway buried by the bitterness. There are really no malt flavors at all as it is completely hops. A touch solventy and I don't think the alcohol is very well hidden. I can definitely tell this beer is almost 11% abv. Mouthfeel is full and fairly sticky.

Overall, while this is an impressive brew I really can't say I like it over Ruination of even Stone IPA. It is a little too one dimensional and over the top. Probably won't pick up again but I'm glad I got to try it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a clear copper hue with a khaki colored head that leaves some pretty good lacing on the glass.

Nose is very powerful. Tropical fruit and citrus with some caramel notes and a whiff of alcohol sweetness pull you right into the glass.

Taste is grapefruit upfront with a nice grassy, savory aftertaste. Very bitter but with enough malt bready flavors to back it up.

Mouthfeel is nice almost tacky. Hops are resiny and delicious. Alcohol isn't overpowering but I definitely felt the effects. This beer made me realize why I started drinking Stone beers about 9 yyears ago.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a really nice amber color, verging on copper, that is crystal clear. There is about a half finger of head that settles quickly. Minimal lacing as it drinks.

S: It smells sweet, with massive amounts of citrus. The malt base comes through nicely, but this is super hoppy. The citrus is mainly grapefruit and lemon.

T: The initial blast is mild sweetness. But that changes fast. It's packed full of lemon and grapefruit right after that. The bitters get a bit more intense in the finish, reaching a point where the beer gets really astringent. The high abv is noticeable.

M: Full bodied beer. It starts out sweet and finishes hugely bitter. It's really resiny and the hops seems to stick to your mouth.

O: I like this beer, but it's a bit to harsh for my liking. If you're a true hophead, which apparently I'm not, then you will love this beer. But in my opinion, it's just ok. I don't think I'd buy another bottle.

pretty color but too pale. mellow hoppy aroma could be bigger. big pineapple, mango, pine, very fresh and juicy, lots and lots of hop juice flavor on a pale malt background. gets a little earthy halfway thru. decent mouthfeel and bitterness. not sweet but a little too juicy for me. i prefer my ipas bone dry, and more bitter with the obvious exception being heady topper.

good, but im much more into stouts and barrel aged beers this year. and i do prefer regular runination. nice to try, but dont need another.

From: Binny's, Champaign, IL
Date: Drink by 8/28/2013
Glass: New Belgium globe glass

Stone's Ruin Ten is an exceptionally strong DIPA, both in hop and ethanol character, one that doesn't necessarily redefine the style, but simply pushes hop usage to a higher, perhaps caricature-filled, level. While good, a small snifter would be probably be adequate, and the 22oz bottle format is wrongly suited for Stone's ambitions here: it felt like a chore to drink the entirety of the bottle. While enjoyable and intense for a time, I gradually begin to wonder where the line between "future historical style" and gimmick one-trick pony is. Enjoyable perhaps as a one-time sampling, the beer's intensity yields an almost instant burnout for me, and I do not see myself purchasing another 22oz bottle of this, nor necessarily a 4 or 6-pack. If PtE is a representation of an enjoyable DIPA for me, this may be moving towards it's exact opposite: aggressively heavy-handed hop and ethanol usage.

Pours a 1.2cm tall head of off-white foam, composed of small bubbles, very dense-looking and quite frothy. Retention is average to a bit above average for the style, lasting about a minute and one-half, fading to a thick ring around the circumference of the glass. Lacing is largely not present, a few small dots and lines clinging to the insides of the glass. The beer's body is a dark golden orange color, with light accentuating brighter shades and also bringing out some golden yellow hues. Carbonation is visible through the transparent body, somewhat vigorous in speed and number.

Aroma is of intense grapefruit, orange, pine and woodsiness, lemon rind, and herbal hops atop a surprisingly not insubstantial caramelt malt-influenced base; ethanol becomes noticeable as the beer warms. The website suggests nectarine, pineapple, and tropical fruit, but this does not come across for me.

Flavor follows the aroma with massive hops crammed into a caramel malt base that slightly makes it through the barrage of H. lupulus oils and acids, leading to flavors of intense grapefruit, orange, pine, woodsiness, guava, spiciness, faint sweetness, and ethanol. Front of palate features already intensely bitter hops with bitingly floral, grapefruit, and orange flavors over a still-noticeable caramel malt-influenced base with substantial hop and ethanol spiciness. Mid-palate of very strong, but surprisingly not totally cloying hop presence, including a mix of strong pine and grapefruit, with lesser, but still noticeable orange, guava, lemon pith, and super-strong bitterness; a bit of the caramel-influenced malt bill manages to provide a slight hint of sweetness and depth, while ethanol is noticeable (moreso as the beer warms). Back of palate picks up strong hop bitterness, grapefruit, pine and woodsy hops, and ethanol (especially as beer warms). Aftertaste is of high hop bitterness, grapefruit and pine, woodsiness, slight caramel malt sweetness, and ethanol heat.

Beer is medium-heavy in body, with medium to medium-low carbonation intensity, leading to a lightly effervescent and foamy mouthfeel that is countered by the intense spiciness from the hops and low burn from the ethanol. Ethanol is fairly easily felt on the tongue, throat, and in the nostrils at most stages of sipping. Closes quite dry, with moderate stickiness remaining on the palate.

This is a quality brew! to me this beer is less bitter then the original yet has a larger hop blast. The brew is very drinkable even at the high ABV. The aroma was hoppy and the carbonation was crisp. If you like Ruination you will really enjoy this one. A quality brew from a quality brewer.

Bottom Line: Palate wrecking hop blast!

3.87/5  rDev -10.2%

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of citrus, pine resins, some grass, sweet caramelly malts and faint toffee.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some citrus, big notes of bitter pine and grass, some sweet caramelly malts and very faint toffee.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a decent overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas. Honestly, I feel like they tried to hard with this beer by adding more hops then needed. I truly enjoy Ruination IPA but this just feels like they added a boatload of hops to it, making it overly bitter and taking away from the beautiful citrus/grapefruit notes witch I love in Ruination. Still a decent DIPA but not quite what I was expecting.

Thanks to Kevin for bringing this one by and opening it. It looks like a burnt stoplight amber color in my glass with very sharp and crisp clarity. The thin-bubbled, creamy, off-white cap grows thick and settles slowly; it leaves very nice lacing behind - something I've come to expect from basically every Stone brew now.

Huge citrus and mild tropical undertones line the first sniff; ripe-ass, juicy grapefruit, some pineapple, and lightly white-pepper covered citrus peels and citrus zest. No doubt that this was crafted on the West Coast with a citric hop profile like this. The hops are pretty dank, herbal, and floral; they smell of dripping wet bitterness.

As RuinTen warms up a little, the aroma warps from all hops and no malt, to some hops and a lot of malt. The malts actually become a bit overpowering if you let this sit in your glass for too long - caramel and sticky toffee malts; sweet, sweet, and sweet. Bready and full of itself; I recommend not letting RuinTen mellow for too long, though it may be a hard one to guzzle at 10.8% ABV.

The malt base is strong in the flavor up-front; toasted breads, lightly sweet caramels and a touch of toffee - a huge, lofty malt cloud upon which the huge hop profile opens up. Pungent, leafy, and full of hop oils. Just like the aroma, the initial hop flavors are super fruity; tons of citrus and grapefruit peels, candied and dashed with a bit of white pepper. A very mild onion flavor comes and goes around mid-palate or so.

The malt sweetness cuts the bitterness and keeps things balanced at first, but much like the aroma, the flavors gets a bit too "malt heavy" and almost cloyingly sweet once the brew has about 15-20 minutes to warm up. The hops take a backseat, the caramel and toffee malts jump out, and the alcohol inherits a larger phenol-like presence. The mouth on this beer is huge; thick, sticky, with a resinous and heavy mouth feel.

Had I reviewed the first half of this beer only, I would have loved it. The latter half proved to be a bit too sweet, borderline-cloying, and overpowered with malt. The hop profile was beautiful, but unfortunately it doesn't shine strong for more than 15 minutes or so. I prefer the regular Ruination to this, if only for the lighter malt bill, however this brew is still pretty solid.

Seriously this beer looks amazing! Golden orange-yellow color with a thin white head that smells of sweet malt, a touch of caramel, good sweet citrus and a great hop-forward presence. Taste is just a bit much for me; Ruination decided to RAGE! I love the increased malt character, but the additional hops is just too dominant. I do like how the hops dance on my tongue, and the slight bite from the hops. The linger of the hops in the middle of my tongue is quite nice. FT my other RuinTen...

Thick orange colored beer with a small tan colored head. It is decidedly IPA orange in color.

Smell is strongly of tropical fruit. Strong hop scent, pineapple, papaya, menthol, eucalyptus, and orange. Best smelling DIPA since Lagunitas Sucks.

Starts out sweet and savory with an onion taste at first. Lots of malt and the onion flavor persists. Taste is completely unlike the smell. This is malty and slightly bitter with a strong onion taste.

Mouthfeel is good, it's a sipper.

Overall this is a strong beer that packs a punch, but the onion taste hurts it.

Ok, I need some hops! The Ruination was the biggest baddest beer I had drank when I first tried it years ago. 8 years later, this one is going to be...

Copper pour. Clean and clear. Head is dense at first, then dissapates to a collar. Lacing is good

But the aroma is dandy. Pine up front, filled with citrus, orange peel, mango (a bit) and caramel. Boozy, too

Tastes really nice, but a bit messy. I suppose that's not bad if the intention is to ruin the palate. The pine rapidly leaves, replaced with citrus blurred with tropicals. Booze. Thin caramel.

Still, the feel is nice. Dry, scratchy. Without much of the that resin that some DIPAs have, which resembles Pin Sol. Not so here.

Overall, a palate wrecker. A bit chaotic. Pair it with razor blades

A bit too high ABV me. Still, the high IBU deals with that very well.

Mouthfeel a bit rough for me. Again, due to high IBV.

I'm drinking in a bar so can't properly evaluate color.

I give fairly low ratings for taste and mouthfeel because of me. That has to do only with my preferences.

Yes, overall quality is more than average of others -- sum is greater than parts.

Hazy orange with somewhat soapy, khaki,two-finger head. Left with a thin and bubbly cap that leaves thick and sticky patches of lace clinging to the glass after every sip.

Quite surprised by the amount of floral hops coming through. Went into this wholly expecting a blast of dank and sticky or at least a lot more pine. Even more citrus than expected. Had this pegged completely wrong. Rather enjoy the nose on this one.

Just slightly more aggressive in the taste, but still not as "hardcore" as I presumed. The floral hops take center stage for me, but there is presence of a fairly solid maly backbone. Don't really get any caramel sweetness I usually associate with a lot of this style. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Slightly filmy aftertaste, but not overly distracting.

Enjoyed, but don't see wanting to open a bomber every time. Would have again if on-tap or at least smaller sampling.

A - Clear bronze, small near white head slow to leave. Some cling lace.

S - Hops are there, yes, but maltier than expected.

T - It almost reminds me of an east coast DIPA, as the hops are strong, but the malt is huge too!

M - Medium body, good carb, nice balance.

D - At near 11%, deceptively drinkable.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 22oz bottle. 2013 vintage. A "best by" date is listed on the bottle neck as "08/18/13." Split with my brewing buddy. Excited to try this one, although definitely a little freaked out given the hype and the concept behind this. While I did re-visit Ruination to prepare myself for this, I did not have the chance to try the 2012 recipe of this.

Pours a thick, syrupy deep amber color that is slightly darker than Ruination, although along the same lines. A frothy, thick, nearly sticky looking white head coats the top of the glass, with large bubbles to boot. There's not much carbonation or bubbles visible, save for jet stream at the glass's nucleation point. Lacing is plentiful, although not as ridiculous as anticipated. A huge looking DIPA - one of the most insane yet serene ones I've seen yet. Stone has always been consistent in making their beers look epic and good, and this is no exception.

The bottle describes this beer as a "stage dive into a mosh pit of hops," and it's immediate that it may be an understatement in terms of describing the aroma. The dry hopping here is out of control. In fact, there's no way I can even DESCRIBE anything here going on other than the hops themselves. Forget about any caramel or syrupy malts, or any booze or crispness for that matter. The hops here are f***ing scary. HUGE notes of pine soaked in booze, blood oranges, green onions, garlic, limes, lemon dry rinds, grapefruit peel, as well as intense earthiness and herbal dried fern/vine chlorophyll-like elements. No tropical notes from the Citra other than a herbal pineapple flavor, unfortunately. Other than that, there's a kiss of sweetness from the alcohol, but this has to be the most dank dry hopped beer I've ever smelled on. No idea how to rank it, but it definitely folds the envelope for the style at hand.

When my friend and I took our first sip of this, we had to immediately take a breather. This is absolutely ridiculous. Imagine taking a bite out of a large hop cone or dried pellet and then slowly chewing on it so that it releases a lot of its alpha acids... That's exactly what drinking this is like (especially at the finish), although it does fade away and make room for other flavors. Stone tunes the floral elements of Ruination up to 11, giving out flavors of oily hemp seeds, marijuana, dried tropical flowers, and then fruity notes of grapefruit, pineapple, oranges, a bit of papaya, and tons and TONS of pine. However, I do think the pine was a bit overdone, and the Citra hops feel like they were abused. The malts seep in to provide sweetness and caramelized toasted flavors, and the beer does get breadier as it warms up. Silky smooth unlike any DIPA I've had, which is astonishing. However, this plays an enormous toll on the beer: the warmer it gets, the more syrupy it becomes, as well as sweetened and sickly. This, combined with the high booze and herbal notes makes this resemble near cough herbal medicine by the very finish, and indeed, this was pretty hard to finish - maybe the hardest high quality hoppy beer I've ever tried to wade through.

This is probably, in the eyes of Stone, the equivalent of hop pornography. It's also a test in endurance, and was amazingly flavorful and pushes dry hopping to the next level, but it also is way too over the top, even by Stone's standards. Too syrupy at the finish as well, which is a shame, as the initial thickness and creaminess was pretty heavenly. Not very high in terms of being drinkable, but every hophead should try this at least once. Just make sure you go into it knowing what you're getting yourself into.

Poured into 10 oz. snifter.

A. Hazy amber hue. Semi-transparent ( I can see the outlines of my fingers through the glass). Nice thick white head that fades away slow.

S. Starting out well. Strong citrus fruit. Orange, mango, lemon/lime. Sugarcane. Sweet malty aroma.

T. Malty sweetness at first. Cactus. Orange peel. Hops take over almost immediately. Bitter chalkiness. Very bitter lingering aftertaste. A little hot, but that's to be expected with the ABV.

M. Centering between full and medium. Nice and foamy but not a mouthful. Finishes kind of rough with the bitterness and heat.

O. I didn't know what to expect from this. I had heard so many different opinions. I love the aroma and I like malty IPAs, which this is and that was a pleasant surprise. Bitter as hell if that's your thing. All in all, good not great. Glad I had it, but I'll seek out other easily obtainable brews in the same style.

Bomber into nonic.

My complaint about regular Ruination is that all the hops seemed to have gone into bittering rather than the flavor... This beer holds TONS of flavor-- and tons of bitterness still!

Slightly coppery amber body with a two-finger off-white head. Great lacing... Average retention. Looks pretty good, but not blowing my mind.

Smells of some sweet malts with a giant grapefruit and tropical fruit hop notes. Big old boozy aroma wafting up-- lots of fusel alcohol.

The flavor starts slightly sweet with caramel and sweet breadiness before it dries out with hop notes. Grapefruit, pineapple, citrusy tropical fruit notes abound. Big bitterness on the dry finish.

Feels pretty full-bodied... Really oily, lots of residual sugar coating my teeth.

Overall-- I was happy to try this one, but I don't think it's any better than the regular version-- it's just boozier and more hoppy flavored... It isn't bad by any means, in fact I mostly think it is pretty good. It just isn't one I feel cowled to drink again.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a tulip/snifter. Purchased in Attleboro, MA.

A- Pours a completely clear golden amber body with a 2 finger white head that reduces fairly slowly to some chunky foam. Leaves heavy lacing.

S- Pretty potent, the aroma hit me the second I cracked it open. Immediately I get big grapefruit-citrus and grassy, earthy aromas combined with pine and definitely caramel and toffee.

T- Wow, slightly different than I was expecting. I was expecting a hop-heavy, juicy, tropical blast, instead it's more on the piney, resinous, citrusy side. After the initial hop blast, I get big malt notes that are almost creamy, like vanilla cake frosting (weird, I know, but I'm definitely getting this). The finish is piney, bitter and astringent, and sticks on the tongue for a while. The hops seem to be all over the place in this one.

M- Medium carbonation with a pretty heavy body. Leaves a bitter taste for a while.

I wasn't exactly blown away by this beer given it's hype, but it was still a good drink. I could name many other DIPAs I'd rather be drinking, including "enjoy by" and the original ruination. The balance was a little off on this one, the hops kind of just punched you in the face instead of working together. Do try it though.
