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.

This is my first review and I'm a rookie so I'll keep it simple. I was very excited to try this beer as i am a big ruination fan.
Nice orange color, hazy for sure. Smells great to me, hops and citrus. Not much head or lacing.
I'm a big double IPA fan and for the most part my initial thoughts on a new beer are thoughts of the hoppiness, or the floral and citrus tones, but this was the first beer that made me immediately think "wow, bitter".
It's Stone, it's great, but I would still choose other DIPA's over this if the choice was given.

Pours a nice amber color with a two-finger head (with an aggressive pour) with only slight lacing as you drink it down. Immediate hop aroma and flavor. Very citrusy, piny, with a very nice balanced malt backbone. Very hop-centric though. The hop bitterness lasts as you swallow, but it isn't at all too much. Enjoyable beer.

Appearance: crystal clear dark gold/amber with a beautiful white head. Quite well carbonated and therefore very bubbly. I had a good inch or so of head at first, though it settled down to about a centimeter after a few minutes.

Aroma: hops! Piney, resin notes with citrus at a minimum.

Taste: delicious fresh hop taste. Once again, the hops focus on pine and resin. The bitterness is not overpowering, though it is certainly noticeable. The malt lends good support to the hops while remaining firmly in the background.

Mouthfeel: highly carbonated, this beer tingles a little on the tongue.

Overall: a crisp double IPA with magnificent hop aromatics. This beer is really rather awesome, and a new personal favorite. The hop flavor is simply delectable.
