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.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A: Cloudy burn orange with a frothy white head.

S: Spicy floral hops. Grassy and woody. Roasted malt barely sneaking through.

T: Not the hops assault that I had expected. In fact it was very nicely balanced with a great roasted malt base and a little boozy hint. The hops do get tapered down a little by the malt but they are certainly there and are the dominant force. Very prickly and woody hops, peppery in fact. This is a great brew with perfect balance. Fantastic.

M: Very smooth and very creamy body, off the charts in the normally harsh IPA world.

O: Highly drinkable. This is just a great brew all around.

Serving type: bottle
