BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

Bottled on 6/8/2016. Poured into IPA glass. It pours a pretty, hazy orange-amber color with one finger of milk-white head and lacing. The tiny bubbles ascend the glass throughout the pour. It smells of sweet malt, pine needles, grapefruit, orange, peach and other sweet, tropical fruit,and resinous hops. What a taste! It has a solid malt base with a touch of caramel, followed by a combination of sweet fruit and citrus, and a nice hoppy finish. I'm actually surprised it isn't more bitter and biting. All of the flavors blend seamlessly to produce a great taste experience. You can also really notice the alcohol. If there were ever a "chewy" IPA, then this would be it. It's rich and creamy and the 10.8% ABV packs a punch. Overall, this is an outstanding Triple IPA, definitely meriting its lofty rating. It drinks like a Barleywine. It could easily be savored with a good meal or for after dinner. Just great!

Kind of a musty orange color with a good pine and citrus smell going on. Nice caramel consistency along with the bitter citrus flavors. This doesn't drink like an almost 11% beer. Stone does it again with their amazing IPAs. Should have picked up two at the store!

Definitely a hop bomb! Had a reddish, malty color and flavor.

22oz. bottled on 06/16/16

Pours clear rusty dark orange with a creamy off white foam head. Smells like fresh melons, red berries, guava, ripe papaya, pineapple, peach, red grapefruit, orange citrus, dark caramel malt, biscuity toffee, brown sugar, with bitter leafy herbal pine and dank earthy grass. Tastes like dark roasty caramel malt, biscuity dark toffee, charred brown sugar, dark red berries, melons, papaya, guava, some peach, red grapefruit, orange citrus, pineapple, with bitter leafy herbal pine and dank earthy grass. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy with moderate carbonation. Overall a really great and balanced triple IPA.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Look: Deep amber. Dense, off-white head.

Smell: Pine and citrus rind. Some caramel, malt sweetness, and raisins.

Taste: Grapefruit rind and pine instantly gives out to tons of sweet, bready malt, and caramel. I get some hints of raisins and molasses as well. A mild piney, bitter aftertaste lingers for a while, seeming to almost stick to my tongue.

Feel: Medium-full-bodied. Low carbonation. It's pretty thick, maybe more so than some may like, but it's smooth.

It's not something I'd want to, or even could, drink all the time, but it's a great experience. A lot of really intense flavors mingle together in a very satisfying way.
