Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ehammond1 on 06-14-2012

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: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: amber-golden clear with good head, and significant lacing
S: bread, honey, little apricot and clove maybe
T/M: sweet malt front with a little taste of birch beer, little carbonated. A dry woody sensation starts to pull on the tongue, as the flavor mellows with some light raisin/prune notes. The bitterness comes in at the end a little grassy dryness on the sides if the tongue (that lightly lingers), with grapefruit hints on the top of the tongue.
O: the initial drinks when the beer was cold were a little more pronounced and "harsher". I took a while drinking it, and as it warmed a little, the fruit flavors became a little more distinct.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: A dark bronze color with a little transparency, a nice two finger off white head at the top that left a little bit of lacing around the glass.

S: Strong citrus and caramel notes up front, somewhat metalic scent as well, good amount of malts and piney hops on the nose as well.

T: Strong alcohol up front, burns the palate a little bit, then the grapefruit and citrus kicks in with a slight sweetness on the tailend.

M:Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation, a slight tickle on the tongue from the booze.

O: This was a good beer to try once, I like the lighter DIPA's but this one was very good lets not get misunderstood here, very well balanced, unique brew from Stone.

Tasted several bottles of this over the course of the summer.

A- Slightly darker copper color than other Stone IPA's frothy, white persistent head.

S- A dank pine forest. Deep & powerful hop aromatics.

T- Initial impressions show a boatload of hops. As the beer warms, some hints of caramel & white pepper emerge. Bitterness envelops the finish with some citrus notes.

M- Full & mouth coating. Like drinking a Barleywine. Some boozy sharpness, but it works with the big flavors here.

O- A change of pace for Stone. More malty character than many of their IPA's, but an exceptional effort. Looking forward to seeing this each year.
