Availability: Summer

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: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A 22 ounce bottle split into tulips.

Pours a bright copper color with about an inch or so of fluffy, bubbly off-white head. Solid retention and gobs of lacing. The aroma is of orange and grapefruit citrus, earthen hops, wet dirt and grass, and some bitter and floral hops. It tastes of lemon, orange, and grapefruit citrus galore. Some earthen notes in the middle, and some sweeter candied fruits. A bit of boozy ethanol towards the end. Mouthfeel is crisp, bitter, full-bodied in terms of flavor yet thin in consistency. Finishes clean with some warming ethanol. Overall, this was a great showcase of the glory of hops, but the amount of ethanol pulling through was a bit of a disappointment. It seemed to dominate the aftertaste, and really stand out in the mouth. A lot of great things going for this one, but just too much raw alcohol coming through for me.
