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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Hazy amber orange color with a thick two finger head with good retention.
Aroma of slightly toasted malts, caramel and citric hops. A bit less intense that I initially expected.
Intense bitter flavor with strong notes of pine, grapefruits, pepper and lemon zest. Dry and bitter aftertaste, not as long as usual for Stones.
Medium to full body with good carbonation. Alcohol is harmonic.
Excellent DIPA, but I found regular Ruination better. Maybe due to the fact that expectation is a bitch, or the more robust body was not proportionally compensated on the hop side. Don’t get me wrong, still a wonderland for us hop heads.
