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.

Big props to Stone for this one. If you've ever had a Ruination, just amp that up with a higher APV and more hops to the taste buds! Love this beer. Well balanced for a big hop beer. Very dry just like a ruin(your palate)ation should be. Well done. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a big hop IPA. ENJOY!

A - Pours a copper orange with a ruby back glow. Pancake batter like head remains and leaves nice soapy bubbles after each drink.

S - Citrus hops, caramel, dank, grass.

T - Huge citrus hop bomb, balanced and equaled with a big malt back bone. Everything blends together perfectly and this a smack you in the mouth DIPA with full flavors all around.

O - Quintessential Stone...This brew is right in my wheelhouse. One of the best DIPA's on the planet.
