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.

A: Slightly hazy burnt orange with a bubbly off white head. Spotty lacing.

S: Lots of dank, sticky, pungent hop notes. Tons of grapefruit, pine, citrus and a bit of tropical fruits. A huge does of sweet malt

T: Just like the nose. Tons of pungent, sticky hops. Sweet grapefruit, pine and a bit of citrus are the most noticeable. It has a massive sweet malt backbone that plays very well with the incredible amount of hops that are in here. A touch of residual alcohol. Long bitter and sweet finish that lasts.

M: Medium to fuller body. Average carbonation. Smooth.

O: For being such a huge hop monster, this has pretty damn good drinkability. I like this a lot better than normal Ruination. Just like other Stone beers, I like when they get higher in alcohol since they all have that great malt backbone that I enjoy and this one probably has the best of the bigger Stone beers I've had.

Pours a clear orange with two fingers of creamy cream colored foam, a few rings of lace on the glass. Smell: big grapefruit, sweet orange, booze and tropical fruit notes. Taste: booze and sugar soaked grapefruit. Medium bodied, oily hop everywhere. Vote Ruination in 2012.

*I appreciate the "drink by 08/28/13", but I'm sure the hops would be quite faded by then.

A - It is translucent golden orange in color with a quickly fading small, off white head with minimal lacing.
  
S - Very pungent. Resinous grapefruit... This is not delicate.  It's one-dimensionally overpowering, but that's what I expected.  Huge hop profile.

T - Hop spiciness and big bitterness upfront, yet still smooth . There's a substantial burn in the finish, but I don't mind it too much.  Oily hop resin and alcohol in the finish. There's a nice,slightly Brady aftertaste which lingers.

M - It has a thinner body than I was expecting, which threw me off at first since it's so strong in flavor... I expected a slightly fuller body and mouthfeel.

O - It's a big, bad west coast DIPA... I'd would have liked to compare it to FFF dreadnaught Ina side-by-side.  I'm glad I got to try it, especially in the summer hear, but once was enough for me.  I'd recommend it to hopheads, but it's not a beginner craft beer.

since Ruination is my all time favorite ipa, when i found out stone had made this i HAD to get it (i feel the same way about their 2 new smoked porters, even thoe now i see they are not distributing to MN! ?) this was very very delish if you c it buy it! i can say thoe that it is defiantly more bitter and hoppy than the original which is great, it hits the mark 4 what it is. with that being said i feel that the "perfect balance" of ruination is a little lacking in this offering.
very similar to ruination in looks, smell and taste and still a well balanced beer. in fact for the 10.4% content it has a great feel and taste with little booziness if at all. i have a few bottles of this and i wonder how its going to age in perhaps 2 or 3 months from now. i feel perhaps it has just a wee bit too much edge to it and look forward to it mellowing a bit from that fresh hops taste!

I got this beer from trevorjk when he came back from the States. Thanks for this well made ipa Trevor. drank it with my son in law in the small Duvel tasting glasses i got some time ago. Poured the beer in thebglass with avery nice head and a golden fluis. Nice carbonation and the smell of pineapple hops. Good and decent beer.
