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 is a very solid IPA. Well balanced, very drinkable and i want more. After taste is not overwhelming as I often notice in imperial IPA's. What more can I say: After trying this I quickly went out and purchased 3 more bottles. Price was great also.

If I had them both before me, I would rate the second and first batches against each other. As it is, I am doing this from memory. The first batch was phenomenal, but the later batches were so-so. My rating reflects both at the same time.

Appearance: amber-honey body with a one finger bone white head that leaves sheets of lacing

Aroma: grapefruit peel with a malty backbone

Flavors: touch of caramel malts, soda cracker and grains and then wham!!! It is like I am chewing on a white grapefruit rind; the grapefruit taste and piney bite are powerful and the alcohol warmth just adds to this IPA bomb.

Mouthfeel: medium-full body; low carbonation; big time bitterness; alcohol warmth; the grapefruit note lingers on the palate until you are tired of tasting grapefruit; this is the mouthfeel I expect out of a DIPA and one that is called Ruin Ten

To the Point: yes, this will ruin your palate; I never thought Ruination ‘ruined’ my palate but, Ruin Ten – yes.
