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.

Appearance: A very nice apricot & rose gold color with orange highlights. A very thick and creamy head with excellent retention and form. Its a beautiful beer.

Nose-4: Orange, pine, some grapefruit, and an ocean breeze.

Taste-4: switches between dry and syrupy. Mango and strawberry with faint orange. A very faint stem, or tannic aftertaste.

Notes: Incredible for 10% abv. Very well balanced. My very first craft beer was an Arrogant Bastard and I couldn’t believe a beer could be that wild. Stone has not stopped doing that to beer.
