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.

Had this baby in a bottle.

A: Didn't realize this was going to pour so clear, but it sure looked tasty. Orangy gold with a light head.

S: Loved the smell on this one. Punches of citrus goodness and hops wonderfully wound together.

T: One of the few IPAs I've had that finishes the way it starts. Tropical citrus and hops throughout that keeps this brew tasting bitter and sweet all at once. Quick finish which made me beg my glass for more.

M: Great carbonation, nothing too crazy. Well-balanced feel and the booze was well covered with the incredible tastes. Felt good all throughout and nothing about this beer was difficult to swallow.

D: I could drink this all day if it were possible. Just fantastic, and it definitely beats out Ruination (which is also a fantastic brew).

If you haven't had it, GET IT NOW.

Served in a bottle. Poured into a Stone/Aces and Ales Tasting glass.

Appearance - Deep, rich, copper with slight red tint. Head is a firm white/pale with a fluffy lacing that grips the edge of the glass as you drunk it.

Smell - In your face hops. Pine is the leading aroma, for me, with a smooth caramel balance aside the citrus finish.

Taste - Pine, wood, and floral finish. This one is bitter, but loving it. As it warms you get a caramel/maple syrup taste/feel. Aftertaste is long lasting bitterness with a dry finish.

Mouthfeel - Heavy, long and dry, with carbonation diminishing quickly on the tongue.

Overall - Delicious and well worth the $6 price tag at my local Total Wine. Taste is bold, and perfect for hop lovers.

General - Got this in a 22 oz bottle from Costco of all places, the price was pretty good, something like $4 for the bottle. Poured this into a New Belgium tulip glass. Still waiting for my new IPA glasses to get in so just getting by for now!

Appearance - The color is a deep deep copper, nearly a brown. The head is a slight off white and is light and frothy. Pours great, there is a steady stream of bubbles from the laser etching on the bottom of the glass. Really great color to this beer.

Aroma - Such a hop bomb! There is a big up front hit of pine with a follow up of some slight citrus! Love the scent of this beer.

Taste - Wow great bitterness with a pine hit to it. There is also citrus in the taste of this, really enjoyable. The bitterness is intense in this beer on the aftertaste! No one they didn't go with this recipe in the original Ruination, while this is good, it's almost too much bitterness!

Mouthfeel - Medium body with almost a creaminess to it. There's also a lot of carbonation that sets of the flavors really well.

Overall - Really nice DIPA! I hope that they keep this one in the regular rotation! Get it if you see it in the store!
