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.

Immediately hit with fruity notes on the aroma and flavor and an excellent hoppy middle and smooth finish. I've had this twice on separate occasions and noted a huge difference in flavor between the two. The first blew my mind, and the second disappointed greatly. If the second experience was like the first, it would be 5's across the board.

Serving type bomber

Appearance.. nice cloudy orange.

Smell.. loads of hops.. a bit of pine a bit of grapefruit... lots of hops

Taste.. stars off with the pine in the front, then the sweet bready malt then the grapefruit in the back.. to me anyway

Mouthfeel.. nice and thick.. loaded with hop bite and almost chewy like hop like it was an oatmeal stout but with hops

Overall.. a very nice dipa... was it my favorite? no... was it in my top 10 and something i would buy with regularity yet... still would buy a double jack over it if both were sitting on the shelf next to one another
