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.

Trying for the first time. Has unbelievable taste. Hop forward but doesn't kill you wih hops. Great citrus. Color. Head. Aroma is one of the best. Standout beer of 2014. Wishing I could have had earlier loved loved loved it. Must have

Orange-amber color and cloudy. Small head but it leaves some thick streaks of lace. (4/5)

Powerful, floral hop aroma. This has a strong grapefruit and alcohol to the nose. Spicy and inviting. (4.5/5)

Starts with a decent malt base and the hop that comes in the swallow isn't altogether surprising, but its strength is far stronger than I expected. Very warming to the throat. Long bitter aftertaste. Neutral body with an above average carbonation. 4.25 3.75 4.25
