Another Stone classic – those that can readily get these are indeed fortunate.

I mean, check this out: semi-hazy amber, poured hard in case the 10% tries to knock down the head. But it didn’t, got a nice ivory cap that left sticky laces. TONS of citrus, orange and hops in the aroma. Very sweet and sticky quaff, can’t believe the amount of orange in here. NO hint of alcohol, it slides oily and smooth.

Nice. Enough said, what more can you say about a superb brew>

Muchas Thanks to boolshot for sending this for my BA annv.

Poured from 22oz bomber into Duvel tulip.

A - Copper/rusty in color, mirky, white head. Lots of random bigger bubbles left behind from the head floating around on top. What's left of the head is pretty sticky, leaving some lacing behind.

S - More sweetness/malts then hoppy citrus/bitterness on this one. In fact, very little hoppy flavors and a lot of malts up front. I don't know if I'd say "fruity" sweetness, but a sweetness nonetheless. Probably because it's been a few of years since this was brewed, it has changed a bit. I don't think it's for the worse though, as I enjoy something different (which is what Stone is all about).

T - Sweetness, sugars, malts with a miniscule amount of hoppy bitterness. Almost reminds of of an American Barleywine in some ways, but the sugary sweetness is a good balance and not overly in-your-face. I probably would like some more hoppy citrus but I do like it as-is.

M - Very nice, medium in body, rich. Perfect amount of carbonation.

D - Easy to drink and I would do so again. Although, I think most of its hop characteristics are down to the bare minimum. I think a year or so ago, this would have been just about perfect but I think this one is past its prime.

Enjoyed a pint last night at Concordia Ale House from "...the VERY LAST keg of Stone's 10th Anniversary in the state of Oregon..." [according to "Meet the Brewer" event posting, 12.14.06]. Certainly there can't be much left in that keg, since it's been tapped for 4 days... Tried this beer earlier in the year from a bottle and thought I'd give it another shot before it's gone for good.

A: Deep amber w/ ruby hilights with a 1 finger off-white head, which is creamy but with an unusual sheen. Glistens in the light, almost like soap bubbles. Some clinging lace.

S: Loads of hops - resinous pine - melded with sweet fruit. Something juicy and citrusy, like tangerines. Caramel malts and a zesty spice too. Other reviews have commented on their beers smelling of all hops, so I was surprised by the balance I found in my pour between hops and sweeter malts.

T: Hops tend to dominate at first - a tastebud-pounding scotch pine flavor. Then the malty sweet backbone develops and unleashes a rich caramel/grainy flavor. Some spiciness and alcohol warming in the finish. Flavors are fairly typical of other Stone beers I've had - big, bold, complex.

M: Full mouthfeel and body, active carbonation. A sticky, sweet residue is left on the lips along with a bitter and slightly yeasty aftertaste.

D: I prefered this beer on-tap rather than the bottle I tried several months ago. It's a fine tasting, bold DIPA - nicely balanced and quite satisfying. At 10% ABV, it's one to sip and savor. It has my endorsement for certain...

On tap poured into a snifter.

A: Dark ruby red in color. Off white one finger head dissapates into small floating islands of micro bubbles. Minimal lacing.

S: Topical fruit. Strong citrus and pine hops. Slight malt presence with an earth or herbal undertone. Warm spicy alcohol.

T: First taste reveals grapefruit, mango, and peach. A bitter citrus and pine hop bite is followed by a strong malt wave that tries to balance things out. A wet earth or herbal taste is overtaken by a spicy warming alcohol tingle. Fruit in the nose.

M: Syrup like but smooth. Slick to oily mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Spicy, warm and dry finish.

D: Extremely complex. A fruity hop lovers dream come true. The high ABV limits the amount embibed in one evening but a treat none the less! I am interested to see what this beer will taste like after being aged one full year.Highly recommended!

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

The beer poured into the glass very slightly hazy medium copper with an off-white low persistent head which laced the glass.

The aroma was deeply malty with a strong caramel malt presence which was bready and almost biscuity. The hop character was lightly spicy and citrusy, but not over the top in terms of hop aroma. Some alcohol was present in the hop and malt mix.

The flavor was malty with a super strong citrus bittering which contained grapefruit, orange and a twist of lemon. The hop flavor was also piney and resinous and just a bit spicy. The malt was no slouch either with a strong caramel presence and a bready character.

The finish was dry with lasting long and strong malt and hop flavors into the aftertaste. The body was full and viscous and had a bit of a creamy mouthfeel despite the fairly low level of carbonation. Alcohol was present throughout the beer. While notable in the aroma and the flavor, it really showed what it was made of in the warming that occurred after consumption. A very nice IPA. If I secure another bottle I'll age it to see what it may become.

22 ounce bottle. Thanks BeerBeing!

Well... needed something special for my 100th review. I think this should work fine.

Pours a clear amber color, with a nice head. A great looking beer.

Nose is sweet, a bit dusty, and citrus like. A bit different than I expected. Still a pleasant beer to smell.

This somewhat innocent looking beer really knocks you upside the mouth when you first taste it... whoa! Really bitter and pine like up front, has a sweet and tart middle, then finishes with a bit of creaminess, some alcohol making it's presence known, and then the bitterness from the hops hits you again. This is extremely well balanced for such a huge beer.

Mouthfeel is unbelievable. This is a huge well rounded beer that really coats your mouth. Almost perfect!

This is an amazing beer. It loses a few points for being a bit over the top, but I would never turn one of these down. However... I'd probably only have one per night.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a 20oz Imperial Pint glass.

A: Pours a very nice looking copper color. Off white one finger cap of foam that as it recedes, leaves sticky lace on the glass.

S: Big nose of caramel malt, toffee, brown sugar, raisins, grapefruit, tropical fruit, and piney hops.

T: Big whack of sweet caramel/toffee and alcohol burn right off the bat. Sweet fruit flavors take over and lead the tongue on a neat voyage towards resinous, oily, piney hops. The finish sticks to the tongue (teeth, lips, roof of the mouth,...) and alternates between sweet tropical fruits (mango, guava, pineapple) and bitter piney hops.

M: Mouthfeel seems slick and almost slimey. Strange how something described as slimey could be such a good thing.

D: Drinkability would rate higher for me if it was a little less sweet with less alcohol heat. I also believe this could use a tad more bitterness. Overall this is great but, to me, this doesn't hold a candle to Dreadnaught.

22 ounce bottle from Naja's Place

Poured into a chilled pint glass with a 1/2 inch head

Amazing double IPA with some fruit accents and a strong bitter taste

Hopefully the 11th Anniversary will be as good because I have been hearing a lot of good things about it as well

Highly recommended if you can still find this one floating around somewhere

Stone- 10th Aniversary

Appearance- Dark orange with a big thick head. Heavy lacing on the glass.
Smell- Strong citrus and pine hops. Slight alcohol presence too.
Taste- Big chewy pine cone and orange/ grapefruit rind hops. Alcohol eventually kicks in.
Mouthfeel- Nice and dry with a big citrus bitterness. The strong 10% alcohol kicks in at th end.

Overall- This was a very tasty IPA. The alcohol is very noticeable at the end, but otherwise a very good 1! Find it and enjoy!!

a - burnt orange color, big white head with decent retention and moderate lacing, pretty transparent

s - big hops presence with lots of citrus and pine nicely balanced, very interesting aroma, alcohol is present as well

t - sweet maltiness at the start, then the citrusy/piney hops hit the palate, absolutely perfect DIPA in my opinion, the finish has an alcohol presence and is long and bitter with the hop oil coating the whole mouth

m - not much carbonation, medium-bodied, hop oil coats the mouth very well, mildly dry finish

d - I really want to drink this all night, but I know I would be miserable tomorow if I did, the 10%abv seems much less and the taste is amazingly complex and interesting which makes me want to keep on drinking

Wow. That's the best description of this beer. Stone has outdone itself with this 10th Anniversary brew. It makes me sad to think that this will not be brewed again. Hands down one of my favorite beers. I just wish I was in San Francisco another couple days to enjoy more of this amazing beer.

Hell of a brew. Had it fresh years ago (dimly remembered), and recall loving it, but was surprised to see bottles of this reappearing.

Pours a bright orange with hints of amber. Two inches of off-white head.

The aroma ... breathtaking. Exotic fruits (pineapple? Mango? Guava? Mandarin Orange?) and a bunch of sweet white grapefruit with ... is that malt I detect? Wow, the flavor is pretty balanced. Sweet, viscous caramel, delightful brown sugar, and a bunch of sweet grapefruit and tropical notes.

This is a splendid beer, and I'm shocked at how well it's aged. Going back and getting more. Many more. I never cellar any hop-based brews, but I'm going to make an exception. This has really gone through a barley-wine style maturation process (10% ABV?), and while it may be a different animal, it's still one I'd like to butcher and consume.

**I spotted this review after writing my own: I agree, and would like to know how the tenth was stored.

4.7/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip, a clear, bright orangey-amber with a fluffy, 1-finger off-white head. Left some chunks of lacing as I drank my way down the glass.

S: Immediate assault of tropical fruits dominated by pineapple -- sugar dusted, honey-coated pineapple -- and grapefruit and mango. Also evident as it warms is just a hint of pine and a peppery spice, presumably from the 10% ABV. Nice.

T: Sugary-sweet pineapple juice follows the nose to the taste. A peppery spice is evident briefly up front, along with a honey-caramel malt sweetness. But both flavors are quickly beaten back by the tropical fruit salad of the hops. A palate-shredding bitterness tears the roof off my mouth, but then repairs it by coating the hole it left with mouth-watering sweet pineapple, mango, grapefruit and even tangerine or maybe mandarin orange. It finishes with a nicely balanced menage-a-trois of peppery spice, malty sweetness and fruity hop bitterness. An interesting experience all around -- it literally makes my mouth water after each sip, simply demanding that you take the next sip.

M: Definitely full-bodied. Smooth and creamy, maybe just a tad bit oily.

D: Excellent. As I said above, it creates a Pavlovian desire for the next sip. As a heavier offering you're going to go a bit slow, but it's not a chore to drink this at all. 'Tis a pleasure.

Notes: I shared this (a small portion, that is) with a wine drinker who was wowed by the complexity of flavors and balance going on here. Another person who sampled from his glass asked "is there pineapple juice in this?" giving me a chance to explain that it was the hops (Simcoes I believe) that imparted that flavor, nothing else. This is a remarkable beer that I believe now rates atop my list of reviewed beers. Highly, highly recommended.

One of the best looking pours I've witnessed in awhile. Brings a tear to my eye. Clean bright ruby/amber red with an awesome fluffy thick cloud of a head that is an off white/yellow/brown in color. Damn good looker.

One complex nose this beer posseses. Piney sweet hop and malt, hints of toffee, hints of fig, freshly picked flowers, dried golden raisins as well.

For how complex the nose is the taste has it beat. Not just complex but almost perfect balance as well. The toffee thick malt lends itself wonderfully to the layered hop flavors. Starts with a piney resiny hop than hits the middle with a sweet floral accent, and ends on the 50 second finish with a twist of citrusy fruit goodness. And in between is dried fruits and even some nutty characteristics that leave an oily palate enamoring sensation.

Rich, creamy, smooth, medium carbonated mouthfeel all equals a beer I'd be more than happy to drink on all day and night and well into the next day.

biegaman was nice enough to share this one with me. thanks jan!

pours a light copper colour with a big, dense yellow head. head is slow to drop and leaves a nice layer of lace behind.

aroma is great. first sniff was a touch catty, but after that the other dimensions come out. fruity, orange and tangerine. just a hint of grapefruit. not piney/resiny at all. no real alcohol noticeable.

taste is great. really nice bready malt, decent bitterness level that isn't over the top, and a wonderful hoppiness. alcohol comes a bit, but well balanced. really complex, much more than the average dipa. bit of sherry/dried fruit. maybe cherry. nice.

mouthfeel is great. nice body without being overly full. good moderate carbonation level.

drinkabilty is suprisingly high. hides its 10% really well. i could easily drink a few of these, and fall over. but it's good!

Pours a hazy orange/copper color with a nice frothy, slightly off-white head that retains well. Decent lacing.

Smells of HUGE citrus and piney hops with a certain sweetness from a nice malt backbone. Grapefruitiness also present.

Taste is of grassy, very piney, and floral hoppiness. Sweet malts come through as well, even a tad bit of biscuity flavors try their best to fight there way through the hops but come and go very rapidly, right up front. Lots of alcohol burn in the finish which makes this beer a little less enjoyable/drinkable.

Mouthfeel is very oily, full-bodied and good carbonation.

I wouldnt consider this beer to be very drinkable on the fact that the alcohol is just way too present in the taste.

Overall, I feel that this beer is very overrated.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Crystal clear red-orange body, topped by a highly whipped four fingers of milk shake like froth. Excellent lacing.

A haymaker of pine punches the nose, and as the head spins it notes the grapefruit and orange groves on the outskirts of the pine forest.

Thick chewy caramely malt hits the tongue like the troops at Normandy, but its quickly engulfed by luscious juicy pulpy oranges, and then a pine tree falls on you. It all big and bold, except the alcohol, which adds shading but never takes the spotlight.

Solid, well-crafted mouthfeel has some viscosity to it. Drinkability is delightful and perhaps dangerous.

An outstanding example of an Imperial/double IPA. If you like IPAs at all, and haven't tried this, run to your nearest store.

Pours clear copper with reddish hues, beige, tight head of a half inch height.
The foam dissapates quickly to reveal a skim coat on the surface of small to medium orbs of carbonation.
Nose is pungent and floral.
Very tropical in nature with mossy pine notes in the back.
Pears, peaches, nectarines, pineapple, and spruce sap.
Malt is subdued and aromatics finish with warming alcohols and more fruit.
Body is on the thick side of medium- sticky, sappy, and slightly chewy.
Pallet is massively bitter and alcoholic.
Pineyness is in the forefront now, with the fruit backing it up.
Neither the pine nor fruit are a match for the alcohol sting that is ...10%? Drinks bigger.
Malt is light enough to put the 10th anniversary spot on in the IIPA category, and pulls off some crispness despite the massive grain bill.

A huge, unapolagetic, hop and alcohol attack to the senses.
Big karma goes out a fellow BFD'er in San Marcos.

Bright, hazy orange color with an off white, fluffy head. Very smart looking indeed. Big piney, resin laced aroma-sickly sweet malt and a tinge of alcohol. Meal in a glass. Big malty flavor with a moderate "burn" of hop bitterness-this puppy is potent. Slight toasted flavor. Syrupy mouthfeel-finish is somewhat dry. Very, very drinkable. I could do many of these. While not outstanding-very solid effort. Somewhere I heard this described as a "trainwreck". No way.

Originally revied on 10/12/2006.

This one has been sitting in my fridge for 6 weeks. Ive been waiting, Ive read the reviews, now its my turn.

Lots of carbonation that continues to push the head to a taller nice tan mountain, even after your done pouring. Almost 2 and a half fingers tall. Body is a rich beautiful orange amber typical of many Belgium styles. Nose is a vibrant citrus, fruit sweet hop explosion to the system. Very inviting. Enters the mouth silky and fruity sweet with a very even slightly oily hoppy backbone. Amazing balance and personality. Finishes with a candy sweet ting and a hoppy bitter bite. Alchol hides very well but you know its there trust me. Excellent landmark brew.

A 22 ounce bomber bottle shared with brothercannon. Poured into nonic pint glasses. Appears a murky rich apricot color with around two fingers of dense, lingering amber/tan colored foam. The head leaves a thick sticky lacing on the inside of my glass as I sip my way to the bottom. Nose and flavor are predominantly of fruits such as pineapple, peach, ,mango, plum, nectarines, grapefruit, orange and lemon, as well as a huge dose of sweet medium toasted grains and caramelized malt and a hint of mint. This one has aged nicely, becoming akin to a barleywine and there is still a bit of alcohol burn lingering about. This ale falls somewhere between medium and full bodied with ample carbonation.

Thanks to t0rin0 for an interesting extra. I didn't think I'd have a chance to try this, past its prime or not.

Technically it's a no-no to review a beer that is known to be bad, and a (to say it politely) "well-aged" DIPA is almost certainly that. But on the off chance that people use these reviews to track how a bottle is doing NOW, might as well submit a current status.

A: Pours a murky, dark amber body with a half-finger of cream-colored head in my Chimay glass. The bubbles retain decently, receding in clumps and forming a pangaea of foam that is circled by a thin donut around the edge and a few register marks during the first sips.

S: Caramel, toffee, burnt sugar, rum, and a small presence of spicy pine hops. Interesting. I can tell this isn't going to be an amazing barleywine, but it's not entirely lacking in presence.

T: Still surprisingly bitter! Mostly in the aftertaste, which has a residual pine flavor, but there is an undercurrent of it through the main taste that prevents the otherwise malty profile from going nuts. The malt elements picked up in the smell are quite strong, along with green apple that I didn't pick up in the smell. But they're also lessened by a spicy cinnamon-like flavor that provides quite nice balance.

M: Medium-thick body, mild carbonation: overall smooth sensation. Slight dryness in the finish. Lingering pine bitterness, but nothing too strong.

D: Wow, for a 3-year-old DIPA this is outstanding. I can only imagine how good it was fresh.

Huge thanks to Papago Brewpub and Stone Brewing for putting on a Stone showcase including this amazing beer.

Gorgeous appearance; dark orange with good tan head. It throws out a powerful pine/citric aroma, and offers up an outstanding, pepper-tinged flavor that showcases the full body.

This beer is a huge hop bomb, without losing any more drinkability than necessary. It's a treasure, and deserving of its reputation.

Big thanks to tyrawlings for the chance. Poured into a Dobbelen tulip.

Appearance: Rust colored body, big off-white head, very slow fade.

Smell: Sweet caramel in front sharp alcohol and floral hops (a lot of them). There is also a strong fruit and honey scent that makes it a very interesting beer to smell.

Taste: A rich and maly, yet highly hopped DIPA. Sweet, yet never cloying, a well above average DIPA. The alcohol is noticable, but an asset to the experience.

Drinkability: While not the best in the style, not too far from, top notch. Happy 10th, Stone.

A rich copper brown color with a creamy tan head. The nose is a mixture of aged piney hops, candy malts and ripe fruits. The taste follows nicely. Again a big sweet malt profile followed by a dulled yet delicious hop variety. Full silky body is well carbonated. A fantastic ale that has aged well.

Drank from a 1 pt. 6 fl. oz. bottle purchased from Mall Discount Liquors, Cambridge, MA

Poured a beautiful ruddy orange/amber with a one finger, cream colored, fizzy head which faded very quickly. Small amounts of sporadic lacing appeared on the glass.

Smell was very hoppy (cascade hops with hop oils), rich and fruity (citrusy with grapefruit prevailing) yet sweetly malted and candy-like. Some brandy-like notes were apparent as the beer warmed.

The taste was overwhelmingly hoppy and complex. Piney and resiny hops were initially noticeable before the huge alcohol punch kicked in. The alcohol phenols hit hard but disappeared very quickly. As the beer settled in the mouth, the hops once again become detectable along with some citrus and lemon zest. Later, notes of sweet malts, fruits and candied sugar were noticeable before the biting, ultra-hoppy, resiny and somewhat sticky hop finish kicked in. As intense as the hops may have been, they were quite palatable and did not leave any unpleasant bitterness in the mouth. Huge, yet pleasant, alcohol warming in the back of the throat (not quite an alcohol burn).

The outstanding mouthfeel was creamy, smooth and velvety, as well as a bit syrupy.

Drinkability was moderate. This is a flavorful, delicious and (dare I say) moderately well balanced brew, yet the overwhelming alcohol punch can be a bit much to handle. By the end of the bottle I felt like I was going to hit the floor. This beer is definitely not for the faint of heart.
