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.

22 oz bomber from Lil Roberts, poured into a tulip glass. Bottled 6/4/2014

A - Pours a visciously clear red with some orange highlights. One finger head that moves quickly to a thin lace.

S - Grapefruit, orange, mild pine and hop oil, hint of sea salt

T - Citrus, pine, and a hint of malt sweetness, with a mildly bitter finish. You do not get a sense of the ABV from either the smell or the taste. Warming brings out more of the sweetness, which is strawberry/mango like.

M - A touch on the watery side, but very smooth.

O - Hadn't come across this yet, so I was pretty stoked to see it (especiallly this fresh, thanks Robert). Not quite over the top on the hops...(edit) after the 2nd glass, I have determined it IS over the top with the hops, which is fine with me. It is well put together beer and highly drinkable for the ABV.

Had this beer the last two times it came out and it was great 4.5+ beer…However to sum this 3rd release installment up is plain and simple. The grain bill is completely taking over this beer and the hops are not nearly as balanced this go around, mostly all pine and subtle citrus in smell and taste. To much malt is adding a unbalanced sweet taste that does not mesh well with the hops.

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.
