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.

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of citrus, pine resins, some grass, sweet caramelly malts and faint toffee.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some citrus, big notes of bitter pine and grass, some sweet caramelly malts and very faint toffee.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a decent overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas. Honestly, I feel like they tried to hard with this beer by adding more hops then needed. I truly enjoy Ruination IPA but this just feels like they added a boatload of hops to it, making it overly bitter and taking away from the beautiful citrus/grapefruit notes witch I love in Ruination. Still a decent DIPA but not quite what I was expecting.

Big props to Stone for this one. If you've ever had a Ruination, just amp that up with a higher APV and more hops to the taste buds! Love this beer. Well balanced for a big hop beer. Very dry just like a ruin(your palate)ation should be. Well done. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a big hop IPA. ENJOY!
