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.

Bottle to a Sam Adams glass. Had high expectations from the reviews of the 2013 bottle and Arrogant Bastard was quite impressive.
This ones not my cup of tea though. Great color and head , but the smell was actually spicy to my senses. Product was orange opaque, but the solids were very fine ad and did not take way from the mouthfeel.
The spice flavor was present in the first several sips, with a bit more sweetness than I care for in a beer.
Well made - just not one for me...

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: pours a orange amber color with a 2" fluffy head that slowly recedes. Nice lacing develops as the glass empties.

Smell: loads of citrus, caramel, and earthy tones comes through to the nose.

Taste: big caramel flavor with intense grapefruit, lemon zest, pine, a bit of earthiness and a load of bitterness that was well balanced. Alcohol is mildly noticeable.

Mouthfeel: medium-heavy in body. Lightly crisp to start, a bit smoother and dry at the finish. Long lasting aftertaste here.

Overall: a very tasty big DIPA. Well balanced and mildly refreshing.
