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.

A: Great looking dark orange and very clear. Only complaint is rather small and quickly leaving thin white head and decent lacing.
S: One of the best smelling beers. Tons of hops, tons of citrus, and a pine backbone.
T: Not as good as expected. Starts with a sweet malt on the tongue. Mid you get some nice taste of citrus. Then a huge amount of hops and bitterness hit. WIth a lingering sticky bitter after taste. You breathe hops for a minute or two after. For its abv I only get a slight taste in alcohol but def, a sippers beer.
M: Good carbonation maybe a little light since no head, but has a very sticky end to it.

O: A hop bomb, with some crazy bitterness and abv. A must try but not may favorite.

Bottled two weeks ago. Poured into spiegelau glass.

A - a nice golden amber. Clean looking.

S - holy hoptown. This smells floral and strong.

T - just like you would expect. A delicious hop explosion. Plenty strong too even for a DIPA.

M - slightly cloying.

O - a great stone double IPA. Definitely more full bodied than the Enjoy By. Different in its own right but just as good.
