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.

Aroma: The hop nose jumps out front, with citrus notes trailing happily behind.

Pour: The coloring and head are picture perfect.

Taste: The hop kick is tethered nicely to a malt base, letting the bitter IBUs stand tall during the drink, then fade nicely into a smooth finish.

Clear amber with a huge white head that sticks for about 10 minutes. Lacing is minimal.
Smell is all malts.
Taste is big malts with plenty of alcohol. Hops were there but totally masked by the malt bill.
Mouthfeel is full with enough carbonation. Finish was dry and sweet.
Overall my least favorite from Stone. I was guessing this was a Barleywine or even a Malt Liquor. If you like sweet and boozy this is your beer.
