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.

Clear as a bell amber,2 finger soapy white head,carbonation appears slight,lacing respectable.

Aroma is hop forward, but the dank oily type, not so much in the way of tropical nose.

Taste starts out sharply bitter, with the flavors of the grassy hops coating the palate in waves before subsiding. Slight grapefruit pith but mostly resinous acidic hops playing out here with some heat brining up the rear as the booziness becomes apparent in the throat.

Mouthfeel is surprisingly heavy for the appearance: this reminds me of F&W Double Jack which also has a solid "bite" to it with the aggressive hops and alcohol presence.

Overall, a strong-like-bull Imperial, but the highly acidic characteristics are a bit much here. Stone Enjoy By is a much more palatable IPA for those searching for tropical qualities, and a less acidic hop wallop.

A - Poured into a snifer from a 22oz bottle. Orange amber color and a small head and nice lacing.
S - Loaded with hops. Grapefruit , Citrus, Pine
T - Like the smell this is all hops. The taste is strong of grapefruit, Tropical fruit, Citrus, a little pine. Spicy. Good malt profile on the backbone to balance. A bitter biter for sure.
M - Medium body, a little creamy It takes over the palette. the ABV is defiantly noted.
O - This is one hop attack of an IPA and really enjoyable.
