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.

4.43/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Slightly hazy apricot color supporting a firm, just-off-white head, about an inch thick in the tulip glass. Foam is pocked with craters. Grapefruit and tangerine rind aromas predominate. Pine resin. Stinging bitterness right away, accompanied by apricot, mango, and tangerine flavors, finishing with a grapefruit zest bitterness. Some understated caramel sweetness appears as the beer warms. This is a big IPA. Although it is primarily medium-bodied with an oily, resinous character at first, the beer does begin to feel heavy. A nice annual release overall.

On draft at Tap 42 Fort Lauderdale

A -Nice orange/amber color...white head that dissipates

S - Great smell....I use a Zombie Dust scale...zombie is 5.0....this is 4.5
Nice floral and hop smell....very very nice

T - Just a great beer...Carnal malts..then milt carbonation and great bittering hops (not sure what they used)

M- mildly warm but not annoying....medium feel and a little bubbly

O- Love it...it was my 3rd beer in a flight so it may have set a little longer than I would have wanted but if you are in a bar with this beer its a must.
