BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Stone Brewing
California, United States
stonebrewing.com

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.

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

Pours a dark clear orange with a pretty small off white head that hangs around for a little bit leaving spotty lacing behind

Great nose a lot of pine and floral hoppyness,I want to say I get a honey like character in it too, but I could be off on that

Ya that's a tasty beer. Lots of hops (as expected)kinda hot still which I like and didn't expect. It's piney, florals and bitter

It's light to medium bodied, and carbonated. At first it gives a very wet mouth feel that quickly drys out after swallowing

Overall it's a pretty damn good DIPA

On cask at Beachwood I,

A: Pours burnt orange with a medium white head, leaving thick lace.

S: Lots of great hop notes. Heavy grapefruit and grass, pineapple.

T: Hop heavy, pine and grapefruit. The booze is apparent, almost giving a barleywine feel even though the malt is clear DIPA.

M: Full-bodied, very resiny and green, very long aftertaste, again some ethanol character.

O: A big monster DIPA for sure, certainly enjoyable, but nothing to go crazy for, I prefer regualar Ruination to this.

A: Nice bronze color, whispy white head, dirty ringer...

S: Heavy citrus - grapefruit & orange. PINE!

T: BOOM! Hops in yo mouf!

F: Initial big hoppy bite that remains "sticky" even over the crisp finish.

O: Smashing example of an American IPA. Another example of Stone setting the bar. Good work Gents.

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

A: Pours clear and golden with a thin white head which fades to the rim and leaves a bit of lace.

N: Shines with citrus such as grapefruit, orange, and tangerine. Some pine and tropical fruit notes also.

T: Follows nose with plenty of sweet malt to balance things out. Resiny and fresh green hops really stand out but the sweet malt wins on the finish.

M: Medium body and carbonation. Dry and bitter. Notable ABV here is hidden but certainly present. Perhaps a tad too sweet for me.

O: Big, complex, balanced, and powerful. A nice tribute to a classic.

Bought it at the local Total Wine today. Could not resist tasting it tonight with dinner.

Poured it in an Arrogant Bastard pint glass. A slightly off white head appeared and I was left with a gorgeous amber gold colored beer. Reminds me of Knuckle Sandwich as far as color. Absolutely, beautifully clear.

Smell was beautiful. Slightly sweet but loaded with grapefruit, pine and citrus. Grapefruit is the predominant scent here for sure. Juicy, juicy!

Taste was a little odd at first. It wasn't as citrus bomb as I expected. SMOOOTH comes to mind as far as taste. Hoppy but not overly so when cold, as it warms the hops come out a bunch more. Velvety smooth was my description of the taste. The finish came through with that lovely hop oily bitterness. That hung around a good chunk of time too.

Velvety smooth, oily mouthfeel. Heavier bodied than regular Ruination. Great feel.

Overall, well... I bought one bottle. I'm going back out tomorrow to get two more. It's a great beer. I'm reminded of Pliny the Younger when drinking it. For the $6.49 a bomber, it's a steal. Go get it, drink it and enjoy it before it's gone.

Bottle (2012)

Liquor Stop
San Marcos, CA

Clear, dark orange with a hint of amber and a moderately sized off-white head that lasts for quite some time, eventually leaving messy, irregular webs of lace down the glass. I've never seen a prettier DIPA.

A tremonds bouquet of hops in the aroma: big pine and citrus notes, a good amount of resin and dank marijuana, tree sap, and some caramel sweetness. Bold, expressive, and fresh!

Big bitterness, huge amounts of pine, citrus, and sap hop flavors, lots of floral elements, along with some citrus and malt sweetness. Complete and delicious. This smacks you over the head with hops.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, as well as a touch oily.

A world-class DIPA. Better than Ruination.
