Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.80%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Dark amber color with a orange hued color frothy cap. Citrus and tropical fruit aromas with rings of lacing around the glass. Amazing flavor of floral hops, tangerine and unsweetened grapefruit. Pretty full bodied and nicely balanced with the malts and bitterness working in unison. Very glad I finally decided to pick this one up so good indeed!

Very hoppy, both citrus and pine. Sweeter than I expected. Alcohol burned a bit. Still a very enjoyable sipper.

Pours deep orange in color almost mahogany. 1 finger of head. Moderate-high carbonation.

Aroma is very dank, sweet malts, and a burst citrus. Some onion/garlic notes.

Taste is huge! In the beginning is the light citrus notes, that is quickly followed by a major dankness. The taste is Then followed by sweet malts and a kiss of honey. Then some tropical fruits come into play (mango and juicy peach). The finish is of floral hops and a huge punch of bitterness. An alcohol heat and slight spice rounds out the beer into the aftertaste.

This is a strong beer with tons of hops. It drys out the mouth and kills the palate, but that is basically the goal of this beer. I would pair it with spicy Menudo. It gets a 88/100.

ooh wow. a tight rope walk. even though it's +10%, the pine and bitterness offset the booziness pretty well. I'm not huge fan of the 10+ IPAs but this is very drinkable for that category.

The RuinTen IPA is a big ass beer. Poured a copper color with white head that laced. The scent has pine and citrus. The taste was alcohol....pine and citrus. The mouthfeel was full in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a BIG beer and well worth the taste.

Bitter, aggressive and resinous, but also balanced by plentiful candied/tropical fruit. Love the big, chewy mouthfeel. What more could you want from a double/triple IPA?

At its center is a sweet, malty booziness reminiscent of a well-crafted Manhattan. There's even some pine, which has largely been forsaken by some of the more fashionable IPAs these days.

This one is right up there with Hi-Res. Pull the trigger on this beast, you will not regret it!

sharp bitter tasty hops carbonation is almost perfect was recommended by the sales rep. I love asking the guy running store (if they agree to liking any of my favorites to suggest something. this was a very good recommendation .. has less of a resin taste than most ales like this and that is beginning to be a good thing
