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.

L (4.25) - Very nice dark burnt orange/brown color. Good light tan head on top too.
S (4.5) - Smells like heaven. Heavy malt smells and plenty of hop aromas.
T (4.5) - Tastes even better than it smells. Nice malt backbone, but plenty of floral and bitter hop tastes. A little alcohol taste, but not too bad. No bitter aftertaste either
F (4.25) - Good drinakble beer. Plenty carbonated, but still easy enough to drink.
O (4.5) - I didn't know this was a DIPA until I poured it. But I love that style of beer, and this one do not disappoint. Will definitely buy again!

Probably one of my favorite IPAs. This is one of the most well balanced DIPAs I have had. It is dangerously drinkable at 11% ABV. The hop character and nose hides the high ABV very well.

I think this is just okay - at a point it just gets gratuitously hoppy and big. I guess that's the point though. It's just a big, hoppy mess - good carbonation and viscocity though.
