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.

Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint.

A - Pours a hazy golden orange with a rocky, two-finger off-white eggshell colored head. Thick rings of lacing. Good head retention.

S - Intense aroma of various C hops; pine, citrus, mint, a hint of butterscotch. Smells inviting.

T - Powerful hop flavors mirror the nose; spruce and pine blast the taste buds initially. Fruity esters (grapefruit, pineapple, papaya) in the mid-palate. A sweet honey-like malt base supports the hops wonderfully. More pine and mint again in the finish. ABV very well hidden. Excellent.

M - Medium bodied with somewhat "soft" medium carbonation. Silky finish. Supports the flavor profile well.

O - Superior. One of the better DIPA's around. Practically flawless. Will seek out again and again.
