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.

Clear, deep orange with a dense cream/beige cap. Sticky foam, good head retention. Hoppy aroma, lots of citrus, grapefruit rind, a bit of pine, some caramel, slightly herbal with a hint of spicy/onion character. A big IPA with plenty of sweetness to balance the bitterness and hop flavour, more caramel and citrus mostly, along with some booziness in the finish. Full bodied, med/low CO2, nice texture. Overall, quite tasty.
