Stone Brewing
California, United States

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.

This son of a gun is a beast! Like, roar! This done thang is like a Prius with a V8; it's all kinds of smooth and subtle, yet at the same time - bingo bango! It come with a wallop. Raul done like it, but he won't put it in his trophy case of the best.

Kind of like Miss Alabama; sorry baby, you just missed it.

Pours an orangish pale honey hue with a now white cap with descent lacing and a touch of alcohol legs.

Hops glorious hops and that is what i want from this. grapefruit pine tropical fruits and more citrus rind.

subtle sweet malt is run over by all off the Hops glorious hops. grapefruit rind on point with piney resony and tropical and HOPS glorious hops.

Well Wow, drinks like a pedestrian ipa, though nothing pedestrian about this glorious brew.

Crack drink repeat!

I had this beer on tap and in a bottle. Busy weekend! The appearance is a beautiful copper color. The smell is crisp "C" hops with a hint of malty goodness. The taste follows suit with grapefruit from the hops and carmel and light brown sugar from the malt. The mouthfeel is pleasant with a slight glycerin slipperiness. Overall I am super excited about this beer. It is big, 10.8% abv, so I did take my time sipping it slow.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip. Appears a nice amber color with an off-white head. The head sticks around for a good amount of time, and leaves thick lacing.

The nose is full of pine and grapefruit, and is very resinous. The alcohol is well hidden in the nose, and a bit of caramel comes through. The taste is really complex. The grapefruit and resinous pine stand out the most, as expected, and the alcohol is also very present here. There is a slight balancing aspect that is bready and full of caramel.

The mouthfeel is great; full bodied, slightly sticky on the end, and the carbonation is spot on. Overall, this is a very interesting, and over powering beer. The complexities are outstanding, and this is amazing to experience as it warms.
