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.

Let me stat off by saying that this beer is not balanced and doesn't really fit the typical double IPA mold. That being said if you love resinous, oily, funky hop flavor you will love this beer.

A- Not alot in the way of head but retains it well, copper in color, viscous and sticky lacing.

S- Crazy, overwhelming dank fresh hop smell, after sipping for a while you can begin to smell other hop character, citrus rinds, herbal, tangerine, spice.

T- First few sips explode with a mish mash of resinous oily hops, malt only plays a small role of sweetness, alcohol warms the palate but not as much as expected for high ABV. As you continue to drink and the beer warms more of the hop flavor become distinguishable, grapefruit, citrus, piney, peppery, melon.

M- Big, sticky, juicy. Light carbonation.

0- I loved this one. Over the top hop bomb, a must try for IPA lovers.
