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.

Reviewed from notes. Bottle from Rick’s in Alexandria. Served in a Stone goblet. Pours a moderate golden color with a nice white head. The nose is an overload of citrus hops and a bit of pine. From there, it goes downhill. The flavor is indeed quite hoppy and fairly nice, but it’s also fairly boozy, which is an unpleasant sensation when combined with the extreme bitterness. Definite heat there. Not very drinkable.

The beer poured a golden color with a fingers worth of a white head that left great lacing. The aroma was of citrus and pine. The flavor profile was dominated by citrus and pineapple with numerous tropical fruits in the background. The mouth feel was sticky and finished dry and bitter.
