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.

By the way, also had this beer the night before on-tap at Hops & Pie, Denver.
As a lover of IPA's-- and beer in general-- this offering is brilliant.
Full, syrupy body, just exploding with tropical-fruity goodness and hops bite. The extra malt brings a lot to the table, yet the alcohols is not too overpowering. Finish is surprisingly smooth and easy, which makes this amazingly drinkable. I cannot say enough about this beer. The way the head retains and sticks to the glass is just awe-inspiring. I'm not even a huge Stone fan in general, so there's no agenda here. This is simply one of the best IPA / Double IPA's I've ever had, if not the best. And I've had most of the West Coast / Rocky Mountain region, plus a few from Vermont and New York.
Get this beer while you still can! Cheers!
