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 a high ABV beer and it tastes like it. It’s good beer but it’s not to my liking. Taste is very personal though, so enjoy.

From the bottle, it pours a hazy darker amber with a modest head. In the nose, it is HOPS, lots of hops, A good bit of bitter in the mouth as well, balanced by a bit of malt. Decent!

22oz bomber: This one pours a cloudy darker golden color. Small off white head with minimal lacing. Nice nose. Pine, some citrus and a fair amount of malts. The taste is very good. A pretty good hop bite to it: a bit more than expected. A big malt body, but the sweetness is suppressed. Mainly pine and some citrus hops. Very Nice!

This is one I look forward to every year. Pours a ruddy, foggy copper color with an eggshell colored head. Aroma is pine and citrus. Taste has a nice malty sweetness to it. Medium body, nicely carbonated. Gotta love it.

February 1st, 2015 - RuinTen has since taken off around San Diego, but I remember back in 2015 it looked novel and new, and somewhat pretty in the glass, where it burns with that characteristic Stone hue, red and blushing and angry looking. The foam kicks up a fearful storm, too, taking up fully half of this pilsener glass (an unwise choice, I know). The aroma is layered with resin and a leather sharpness defines the hop note. There's some grapefruit too and even a dash of dry lime, but the overall impression is of an appreciably dry and hoppy nose. Consistent with the smell, the flavor is dry and hoppy, but there's also a malty body to back it up. I also get the deep savory flavor of miso (as if smeared on a piece of meat prior to grilling). The aftertaste is little short, but reveals the miso glaze flavor bundled with a bitter twang. This ask a slow sipper, but enjoyable over that long time. I should also note that the booze stays relatively hidden, so caution is advised if drinking with excessive speed.
