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.

2013 bottle poured into a stemmed tulip glass.

A. Gorgeous deep amber color, clear and effervescent. Leaves a receding white head with minimal lacing, belying the strong alcohol content.

S. Smells of pine needles, sap, grass, and lemon. The aroma is faint and the beer settles like I imagine a potion would.

T. Warm, astringent hops. This beer has a super malt backbone with caramel and maple flavors predominant.

M. Clear and effervescent, but the malts weight a bit on the tongue.

O. A wonderful monster of a DIPA. It's 10% but has a minimal alcohol presence. This is the beer I wish Devil Dancer was, and really has the character of a "triple" IPA.

Poured a clearish auburn brown body some decent head and lace. Very hoppy aroma, natch, get my piney citrus and grape feel as well as a sturdy malt backbone. Yes this is a hop bomb that tastes like it smells but I really liked this one because while dry and somewhat of a tastebud nuker, to be honest, I got a medium-bodied beer with good hops and some sweet fruit hop and sweet malt flavorings. The amount of sweetness and balanced packed into this beer is quite unexpected. A sweeter than most DIPA that can still pack a hop wallop is just fine with me and glad I tried this one.

My first Stone !!! I can say I am very Impressed,
Serving was from A bomber Bottle

The appearance is a hazy/burnt orange amber color, that is lovely

The smell ,, where the hell do I start?! its a grapefruity hoppy explosion of a beer , I there was a beer created by divine intervention i would hope it would smell like this!! upon opening it rushed up my nose like a ghost that wanted to posses my soul!!

Taste, Well its not like the smell first off, very hop forward like a punch in the mouth during the hatebreed pit in 2003 at ozzfest, like now, Boom! a slight tinge of sweetness on the tip of my tongue during each sip, but then I get the aftertaste,of fruit , grapefruit, slight taste of tartness like from pineapple in the back of my throat.

Mouthfeel , dry , hopped to the front all the way to the back like the 6 Pantera mosh pits i have been in. very boozy ! not that you taste it but a little warming.

Overall , Amazing !!! complex flavor but a good double ipa , I'm a late Stoner, so this is a real treat for me . Between the smell , and this explosion on the mouth as the bottle reads a mosh pit of hops, is a great beer.
