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.

Brass colored with excellent clarity. A quarter inch of eggshell white head rests on top. Light Brussels lacing. Pungent aroma of citrus hops smell of mango and pineapple. The taste is extremely bitter with intense citrus and tropical hops. Vegetal tasting hops dominate the front and the back of the palate. There's substantial light malt in there,but this is clearly a hop bomb. The mouth is thick,somewhat syrupy, and carbonated.

This pours out a hazy golden orange color with a dense layer of foam and excellent lacing. It's sitting about a foot away from me and the aroma is wonderful from here. Picking it up and sniffing, delicious notes of fruity citrus and fresh pine resin. Flavor is bracingly bitter, but backed by a big maltiness. Loads of hop flavor last through the drink and linger after the dry finish.
