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.

Bottle. Slightly hazy gold pour with smallish white head. Aroma is hoppy, menthol, some stinky onion, not particularly enticing. Taste is oniony, wet, really bitter. Not much tropical fruits and pine, lots of bitterness and alcohol. Really not what I was expecting. A bitter disappointment to say the least.

Tied with DDH Ruination as the best ipa Stone has produced by far. A true CA masterpiece. Giant citrus, tropical fruit and oily pine notes balanced in a big way with a moderate boozyness and a solid malt backbone. This should be made again and again. I was beginning to despise Stone til they redeemed themselves with this bad boy.

A: The beer is very hazy amber orange in color and poured with a half finger high off white head tat died down a bit but never completely faded away.
S: There are strong aromas of citrusy hops in the nose-so strong that I could smell the hops from a foot away after pouring the beer.
T: The overall taste is very malty and has notes of caramel malts along wits lots of flavors of citrusy and grapefruit hops. A moderate to strong amount of bitterness is present and stands out in the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate mount of carbonation.
O: This beer is definitely a malt and hop bomb and definitely tastes strong with some notes of alcohol in the taste. It is more of a sipping beer.
