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.

Poured a half finger of head on a clear, medium straw colored body.
The aroma was incredible. Lots of bright citrus with a touch of honey and pine.
The taste is loaded with hops and bitterness. It is more than a hop bomb though. There is great variety and complexity. Lots of fruit and some pine with a huge malt backbone to hold it all up.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Impressive.

Poured to a tulip glass from a bomber

A- pours a crystal clear burnt orange, with a pillowy white head the slowly dissipates to a thin smear around the glass

S- pungent garlic and onion up front, followed by touches of feel citrus and orange juice with a subtle plum of alcohol on the end

T- wow, just awesome, some more garlicky taste mixed with orange juice, orange peel, hints of brown sugar just an aggressively hop forward brew.

M- medium in body, super aggressive hoppy beer, just destroys the palate the way a west coast dipa should

O- and absolute assault on your tastebuds, a hopheads delight for sure, cheers!

22 ounce bottle, drink by 09/05/13 stamped on it. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours an orange/copper color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is very nice, it smells mostly like pine and citrusy (tropical fruit, grapefruit) hops, along with some caramel malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some earthy notes and bit of bready malt noticeable too. Of course the lingering finish is good and bitter! Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and a little creamy with moderate carbonation. I liked this brew a lot, I'm glad I picked this up earlier today. Definitely worth trying, and I'll be buying this again in the future. $7.99 a bomber.
