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.

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.

A: Poured into a tulip glass. It poured a slight head and a copper color. Good clarity with some lacing.

S: This beer has an awesome pungent bitter smell with a variety of hops on the nose. You catch some malt and slight citrus on the back-end. Really the power of the bitter overpowers me from discerning any further.

T: High alcohol content is noticeable with this brew. You get some malt with mainly a strong bitter taste that mirrors the smell. Don't drink this one expecting to taste other beers after it; there is a good reason this is know as an IPA crusher

M: I get a medium to heavy body on this IPA. More body than I am used to with Stone beers but still remarkably drinkable.

O: Worth a buy if you are a hop head as this is a blast on the palate. Really an outstanding stand-alone brew but not really a good beer to pair with anything. Another amazing Stone creation
