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.

poure 22oz bottle into Duvel tulip. Thank you for this Nick!

A - Transparent amber bronze color, with 1 finger of white head. Leaves the thinnest of rings and traces of lacing.

S - Big bitter hops and pine with sweet caramel mixed in. Damn this is hoppy.

T - My mouth is blasted with bitter hops. Big pine and some citrus. It does sweeten with some caramel and malt in the middle. Finish is a nice bitter pine bite. This is the most bitter IIPA I have had.

M - Medium bodied with light carbonation. Slick and oily feel. Can literally feel the bitterness after I swallow and breath, similar to the sensation of a mint.

O - Big, bold and bitter, but has some balance. Just like a Stone IIPA should be.

Pours a clear, dark copper color. 1/2 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of hops, sweet malt, alcohol, and citrus hops. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of hops, citrus hops, sweet malt, alcohol, and a hint of pale malt. Overall, good appearance and great hoppiness levels.

Bottle with a best by date of 11/03/13, poured into SA perfect pint, $7.99

Appearance was a deep bronze/brassy color. A good inch of white foamy head, died down to a layer that persisted to the bitter end. Very clear.

Smell was citrus, predominantly grapefruit peel, pine, resin. Some hay-like notes and toffee/caramel malt aromas.

Taste - well, the first sip went down hard. Very overpowering bitterness and some heat from the alcohol. Then some balance starts to kick in. Get the grapefruit, bitterness, pine/resin qualities and then an underlying sweetness that kind of ties things together. Still felt it quite heavy on the bitterness.

Mouthfeel - it was medium bodied, well carbonated. Found it a bit tongue numbing, very dry and astringent. The bitterness lingers but it is OK. The astringency/drying effect lasted quite a while - bordered on being unpleasant.

Overall, it was a good beer to try, but not one I would seek out specifically. It seems a little bit one-dimensional and to me the bitterness overpowered some of the other hop qualities.

A- A beautiful copper color, and when poured into my Jester King glass, had one finger of lacing.

S- Citrus, and wood.

T- Pine, grapefruit, hops, booze

M- With the ABV that this beer brings in, you can expect that it doesn't feel watered down. A nice mouth feel, but not as viscous as the big stouts.

O- Not bad for $8. Stone is always a solid performer, and they didn't disappoint once again. If you like hops, you will enjoy this flavorful brew.

Done in a horizontal review/tasting with GLBC Alchemy Hour

Eye: Crystal clear orange on the pour. Very nice creamy dirty white head that holds and leaves excellent lacing. Really they don't get much better appearance wise.

Nose: Big hoppy aroma upfront. Definitely can tell that this has been dry hopped. Citrusy hops dominate, grapefruit and some limey aromas. Overall nice. Malt backbone to support it all.

Tongue: Malt upfront with some alcohol and nice hop flavor. This beer is balanced very well. Citrus hop flavors meld nicely with the strong malt presence with a nicely balanced finish. Body is heavier than I'd have expected but the hop bitterness and citrus flavor help to lend lightness to it. Taste here lingers, alcohol on the back of the throat with hop bitterness sitting on the back of the tongue.

Drinkability: This is one I'd have no problem drinking again. But really, its not something that is so amazing that I'd seek it out. Glad I bought the bottle and tried it, but nothing really all that mind blowing. Really good, but its not one of those beers that changes your world.

22oz bomber with a best by date of 8/28/2013, shared with Benish and poured into a New Belgium globe yesterday, 7/23/2013.

This beer smells like cat piss. A decent bit of pine with a lot of citrus, a bit of grassiness. Somehow this all comes together to make cat piss. This is all mixed in with a strong malty sweetness reminiscent of caramel and toffee. This nose does not prepare you at all for what you are about to experience drinking this beer. No way.

The appearance is outstanding. A clear amber, burnt orange body that pours with a lovely, fluffy 2cm white head that takes its time to go away, leaving thick collar and lacing on the side. The lacing is exquisite. This is a very good looking pale ale type of beer.

As I drink it, I feel like I just got kicked in the face with pine resin, citrus orange, lemon zest straight up. This is supported by an excellent malt backbone that provides sweet caramel and some brown sugar. All I got to say is that this is a super hoppy flavour that is actually balanced well by the malt backbone. It is very bitter as well in a good way.

The beer ends well with a bitter hoppy finish that is some amalgamation of the pine, citrus and grassy hops. The finish is a bit dry but not overly so. It is a well carbonated beer that comes with a thick medium body, which is a pleasure to drink as an DIPA. Not boozy at all for me. I find this beer to be very well put together in terms of the hop and malt balance.

All in all I thought this is a great DIPA. I wonder if this ought to be classified as a Triple IPA because the hops are just above and beyond what I expect from a good DIPA. The malt backbone is well-constructed and supports the bittering hops very well in this beer, so the drinking experience is very good. I continue to be impressed by Stone and what they have been doing with their beers, despite all the marketing they do produce excellent hoppy but well-balanced DIPAs that sell at a great value. I do think they could do more with the aromatic hops in this beer.

Enjoy by 8/28/13... consumed 7-23-13. (re-reviewed since last one was past its prime)

A: pours a light orange-peach color with about 1 fingers worth of head formation with moderate lacing and slightly transparent. carbonation is moderate.

S: big orange citrus and apricot notes are right up front with underlying grapefruit note as well, big grassy hops, strong caramel, slight green tea, slight alcohol burn

T: piney resin right up front, sweet caramel backbone holds this brew together nicely and is well balanced with a big bitter hop profile and tangy tropical fruits. fruits come in the form of orange peel, apricot, and a touch of lemon zest. big alcohol presence as well that leaves quite a lingering heat effect on the palate

M: Solid medium bodied brew, nice carbonation. the palate is left with a crushing hop bitterness followed by intense alcohol heat. there is a just a slight caramel sweetness too, but its pretty much dominated by the hops and alcohol.

O: reviewed this one about 2 months after its Enjoy by Date before and man that was one of my 1st drain pours as it completely lost its balance, became acidic and even borderline sour.

Having it within the time frame, this brew is a much different animal. (for those wondering how it would hold up). Brew is extremely hop and alcohol forward, but it does have enough sweet caramel malt and fruit to create a bit more balance.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours orange into the glass with a beige head that contains some great lacing as I swirl around the glass.

S: Smells of oranges, peaches, mango, pineapple, and sweet caramel.

T: Orange, peach, mango, pineapple, tangerine with bitter grapefruit on the finish. Caramel malt is in there to help with a bit of a malt presence, but it's definitely in the background. Overall, a sweeter tasting IIPA because of the tropical and fruity nature of the hop flavors. A lingering bitterness though to let you know it IS a IIPA. Great tropical fruit presence in this beer that I remember from Stone Ruination 10th Anniversary. Its like drinking juice; that's how I like my IPA's.

M: A full-bodied beer that goes down smooth with a signature IIPA bite on the finish. Carbonation isn't too light or too strong.

O: I haven't had PtY or Heady Topper, but this (and last year's incarnation) is probably my favorite IIPA that I've had. Great job with this one Stone, it's a WINNER for sure.

On tap at several place around Houston. Cottonwood and Hay Merchant most recently.

A: Pours a dark golden/orange color with a bit of haze. A two finger white head forms, and recedes after a few minutes. Sticky lace is left down the glass.
S: Burnt caramel malt, resiny pine, and a lingering grapefruit bitterness last forever. Not much else in the nose.
T: Like the nose, burnt caramel malt, and sugar which quickly fades to the intense resiny and bitter hops. Resiny tree sap, piny hops, and grapefruit bitterness. Plenty of solvent like alcohol.
M/D: A full body with moderate carbonation. Sticky, syrupy, and resinous. Hot, solvent alcohol, and an intense hoppy bitterness. Which means, it is something I am not particularly interested in.

I don't get the love for this one. Really one dimensional, and Enjoy By is worlds better. As well as many great locally made Texas DIPA's I will take in a heart beat over this. Let alone the classics like Pliny.

Pours a hazy deep orange to amber color with a two-finger and creamy off-white head. Beautiful lacing left behind throughout. Aroma is pine, resin, citrus, and floral hops with honey and biscuit malt with pineapple esters. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness with supporting sweet malt, fruity esters, resinous pine and a dry finish. Full body and moderate carbonation throughout. Overall, a very delicious hop bomb from Stone. This quickly became my favorite in addition to their Enjoy By IPA series.

A: Nice orange/amber hue with a big creamy 3 finger head. Great lacing on the glass as it goes down.

S: Intense grapefruit and resin aroma. No real malt or sweet smell to this one as the hops dominate the profile.

T: Resin hop flavor and punch that fades into a grapefruit like taste. Faint hints of honey malt in there that are overpowered by the onslaught of hops. Love the intense citrus bite aftertaste in this one. A true palate ruiner just like Ruination.

M: Very creamy, velvet like feel. Very good.

O: A very good push of the envelope by Stone. I appreciate the pushing of the boundaries and making such a hop bomb that really puts the hops on the front of the stage. I want to say there is no malt flavor to get in the way of this onslaught of hops, but I know it is in there some where. Good job pushing the boundaries with this one, well done!

RuinTen pours a deep gold with a fluffy whit head. Retention is good and lacing is top notch.

The nose is hop heavy, as expected. Light, fruity hops come jumping out with notes of pineapple and orange. There's a slight malty sweetness and a decent alcohol presence. The 110 IBUs and 10.80% ABV are both well represented.

The taste is slightly sweet as it enters the mouth. Tons of fruity hops say hello as a malt backbone tries to balance them all out. It finishes awfully bitter, which becomes more noticeable as the beer warms.

The mouthfeel is medium-bodied with a solid alcohol presence and a very bitter finish.

Overall, this Double IPA is a fine example of the style and a worthy beer to celebrate Stone's milestone.

Poured from the bottle an amber-orange with two fingers of off-white head and a generous amount of lacing left behind.

Big hoppy aroma of grapefruit, tropical fruit, and pineapple along with sweet caramel malts.

The taste did not disappoint. Big, bitter, and hoppy with the grapefruit and pineapple. Well-balanced with the caramel malts. The nearly-11% abv smacks you right in the kisser. Too much, really.

Medium bodied and slick with a moderate carbonation.

This was a good beer to take your time and enjoy.

Pours a clear amber color with a nice two finger cream colored head. Leaves plenty of sticky lace behind.

Aroma is nice sweet malts packed with lots of hops tropical fruits, hints of pine with some floral mixed in for good measure.

Taste is sweet malts loaded with hops signature stone flavors nice sticky hops every where.

Mouthfeel is medium with pretty smooth carbonation for an IPA.

Overall good IPA from Stone big surprise, might be bit over hyped but doesn't disappoint.

Drink by: 08/28/13

Solid gold with a thick, tight bubbled head. Aroma is thick with bright lemon, lime, and sugary grapefruit over fresh pine needles and flowery hops. A slight cookie sweetness is present, but it's mostly astringently hoppy with a whiff of alcohol. Seriously hop-forward flavor backed by a pale malt sweetness. Grapefruit, pine resin bitterness, pineapple, tangerine, and melon. Oooo tasty...and not too sweet at all, which I didn't expect. Aggressive, crisp, and surprisingly not too strong feeling either. I mean, it feels "big," but I enjoy it, and I should know to trust Stone with hoppy beers after years of proof. I remember drinking Ruination for the first time, now it almost seems tame in relation to what DIPAs have evolved to be, but this sort of brings back that "holy shit that's hoppy" feeling.

Pours a golden sun color with a thick off white head, great retention, nice lacing.

Big citrusy/tropical fruit punch quickly overshadowed by resinous pine. A slight biscuity malt note in the background.

Big raw resinous pine dominates popping with some tropical fruit - mango. Finishes dry and bitter with the ghost of malt backbone disappearing into the back of your throat. A tasty brew with lots of flavor. It is a bit intimidating, a sipper, but good.

Enjoyed at Bier Station in Kansas City--leftover from an "IPA Day" tap takeover. Poured into a small Belgian-style tulip glass.

Appearance - Orange-amber body that is clean and clear. Head is slightly tan-colored and dissipates after a few minutes. Lacing is silky and fleeting, disappearing after settling on the glass for a moment.

Aroma - Strong, with grapefruit and floral hops. Some ether and other notes that hint at the high ABV level. Perhaps some pineapple-like acidity comes through as well.

Taste - The aroma was strong, but the flavor is even more aggressive, with more grapefruit and pineapple, and even some bitter greens complemented by a background characteristic of sweetness. There even seems to be a hint of medicinal quality, but not in an off-putting way.

Mouthfeel - Crisp, with light-to-moderate body and light carbonation. Some of the bitterness from the hops sticks in the back of your throat.

Overall, a tasty DIPA, but when it comes to Stone-made DIPAs, I'll take Enjoy By. This one is just too much from the hop profiles and not enough balance.

I've been waiting for this one. Ruination was one of the first real high IBU beer I had. I still love that beer. So, I was so excited to see this one. The pour had a sligthly golden amber red tint to it with a never ending white head.

Once opened and poured, the aroma brought me right back to my first time with Ruination..T:he typical grapefruit/citrus overtone was there, beautiful as ever. This 10th Ann version had a deeper amber color and more intense grapefruit/citrus bouquet than the standard Ruination.

When I was starting to have my first sip, my nose senses started to explode! There was grapefruit, lemons, peaches, limes, oranges dancing in my head. Almost to the point it was overwhelming and I should be putting the glass down.

BUT

The first sip took away a good amount of what my nose was trying to tell me.
Now I was getting bombarded with all the aromas and tastes from this beer and just about all the other flavours, tastes, aromas I've read about from different beers.

The first sip was a pleasure, almost as if there was a little sting on my tongue just to let me know what is coming. For one of the first time drinking quality beers, I actually felt that this beer was dry! Dry in the sense of some outstand California or French whites. Dry but at the same time eloquent.

This beer was full, bold and exploding at all aspects. All the various taste points in my mouth were touched by this beer. The aftertaste was long and lingering, and just begging you to have another sip.

Which I did and again.
Great job

Ok, my third experience with this beer. Each time I have been having it, it gets better and better. Nothing negative to report about this beer. In fact if anything, the praise gets better and better. Absolutely nothing negative to say about this beer, except the bottle empties way too soon.

When I saw that first box of RuinTen sitting right out in the open at the entrance to the liquor store, I stopped in my tracks and stood still in a mystefied stupor. It must have just been my imagination at work, fabricating the RuinTen label on what was actually just plain old Ruination... but it was no dream. The beer I was holding in my hand later that evening (at cellar temperature and poured into a snifter, of course), was none other. However, the experience I was soon to partake in would be UNREAL.

Ahem... An illuminescent honey orange color. Totally transparent, and with a fleeting one-finger white head. It looked good, but as of yet there were no indications of what was to follow...

As I put my nose up to the snifter, the ecstacy began. I met an explosion of tropical fruits - orange, grapefruit, mango, and pineapple. And of COURSE, it smells like HOPS. As if one of Stone's DIPA's WOULDN'T smell hoppy... There is a sweet honey or caramel scent too.

The taste...? An atomic hop bomb. It's just so tremendously intense with hops that it almost feels acidic! Much like Ruination, it has a strong pine character, but it has a more malty finish that differs quite a bit from the CLEAN finish of Ruination. This finishes DIRTY. And I like it. As for other dimensions, it also tastes of resinous plant matter and has a burst of orange flavor. It's a perfect meld that provides something different from the aroma, but also compliments it PERFECTLY. I'm not tasting the 10.8% ABV at ALL, and the following I can say with with certainty: this is the absolute hoppiest beer I've ever had (and probably the bitterest). It is quite simply the epitome of hoppiness.

It has a thicker body than Ruination, the better to support its thicker hop flavor. Carbonated splendidly.

Why did they have to make it so delicious? It's so incredibly, amazingly good that I have trouble restraining myself from drinking it too fast. This is a dangerous high-ABV weapon to be used against lovers of hops like myself. It's the kind of beer I would see mirages of if I was lost in a desert and wandering deliriously across the dunes under a scorching sun. Thank goodness the ones I saw at the store were real. The best DIPA I've ever had? I think so, yes.

A: Polished copper-bronze in color with a decent white head forming. Foam persists for quite a while. Plenty of slow moving carbonation from the bottom. Some stickage to the glass.

S: Smells like a mix of every hop aroma I've encountered. Pine, citrus peel, fleshy fruits, a little earthiness. You can also smell the big maltiness needed for balance. Slight whiff of alcohol.

T: Resiny pine bitterness, grapefruit and peel, earthy bitterness. What starts out as a fair amount of alcohol, only increases in potency and warmth.

M: Pretty big body here. Not syrupy, but a little bit slick. High carbonation is odd with the big body and ABV, but doesn't really detract.

O: I was expecting a little more from this beer. This is a big, mean DIPA, but a tad boozy and just didn't blow me away overall.

Poured into 10 oz. snifter.

A. Hazy amber hue. Semi-transparent ( I can see the outlines of my fingers through the glass). Nice thick white head that fades away slow.

S. Starting out well. Strong citrus fruit. Orange, mango, lemon/lime. Sugarcane. Sweet malty aroma.

T. Malty sweetness at first. Cactus. Orange peel. Hops take over almost immediately. Bitter chalkiness. Very bitter lingering aftertaste. A little hot, but that's to be expected with the ABV.

M. Centering between full and medium. Nice and foamy but not a mouthful. Finishes kind of rough with the bitterness and heat.

O. I didn't know what to expect from this. I had heard so many different opinions. I love the aroma and I like malty IPAs, which this is and that was a pleasant surprise. Bitter as hell if that's your thing. All in all, good not great. Glad I had it, but I'll seek out other easily obtainable brews in the same style.

Stone RuinTen IPA, 2013 Annual Release, 10.8% ABV, 110 IBU's. A - Brilliantly clear light golden with orange tinge, just enough bright white head. S - Incredible, Hops hops and more hops, lemon-orange oils, alcohol presence. T - Hop bitterness and alcohol burn dominate, malt doesn't seem to be able to catch up, very dry, some hidden citrus notes. O - Palate destroyer, abundance of hops is quite enjoyable, although light malt profile is no match for the high alcohol content, better as it warms.
