Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ehammond1 on 06-14-2012

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.

Served from a bomber bottle into a wine glass.

A - Color is a brilliant gold-orange with excellent clarity. Head is pure white and a bit weak. The bubbles have an oily sheen. Strong lacing.

S - The aroma is mainly of hops: spicy, peppery, citrusy and piney. Some bready malt and sweet alcohol in the background. Very clean and fresh smelling.

T - Hops initially drown out all other sensations. Very strong bitterness, along with a big hit of citrus and spice hops flavors. It seems a bit harsh at first. Later in the palate some sweet biscuit-like malt comes in and even a bit of cotton candy sweetness. Then the bitterness rushes back and turns it into a mostly dry finish.

M - Medium to heavy body. Extreme hops burn along with some alcohol presence, although the 10.5% is not evident. Carbonation is a bit low.

O - This beer's flavors undergo amazing changes during a single sip. Great complexity. I like the way it seems to slide into a sweet malty place and then back into a burning, hops-driven dryness. Wow.
