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.

Hop lovers, rejoice! This is one hoppy ass brew. Bought two down at Total Wine. This one has a drink by date of 9.05.13. Thank you Stone for putting a freshness date clearly on the neck!!!

Poured into tulip for review.

A: hazy orange with frothy white foamy head. Suds cling to the neck of the glass.

S: mango, papaya, pineapple, citrus, resin, orange peel. A truly hop lovers paradise.

T: same as taste but with bitter resin that bites back, coats the tongue, and offers pure hop bliss. Dank & chewy.

M: stickiness makes it feel full. Drinks nice, but dankness is cloying at times and may weigh you down. Definitely a supper all by itself.

O: wonderful hop bomb. This is what I wanted and what I expected and Stone just fuckin' knocked it out of the park.

Poured a nice clear amber with a half-finger off white head that looked quite nice. Scents of grapefruit, citrus, orange rind, pine, floral and grassy notes, sweet malt, and tropical fruit. An excellent nose, that entices you to begin drinking this wonderfully aromatic beer. Flavor is intense, beginning with beginning with strong grapefruit notes and citrus rind, moving into pine and grassy flavors, still maintaining the heavy grapefruit and citrus flavors, moderate flavors of resinous hops. There is a nice sweet malt backbone that stays throughout the sip and balances the hops. There is a noticeable alcohol presence and the finish is bitter, with a very bitter hop aftertaste. Excellent, a true hop bomb, but with a nice balance with sweet malt. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sticky hit with slight alcohol burn as well. A nice mouthfeel that burns just enough and is just right in the body to go down smooth, but still remain strong. A fantastic hop bomb DIPA, similar in many ways to the Enjoy By, but with a slightly heavier body and more malt and alcohol presence. The hops are also a bit more forward. Truly excellent and I am glad I was able to find a bottle.

Poured into a tulip glass; darker orange with a huge thick fluffy white head that leaves some rocky lacing. Smell is big hops, almost gin-like piney scents with some other juicy citrus smells as well. Taste is a big, half fruity half bitter foretaste moving into a smooth malt body, finishing very bitter and a little dryer than expected. Alcohol is surprisingly hidden for 10%+.
A delicious DIPA, hopheads must try this one.
