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.

Poured from a bomber, orangey-amber with bubbly off-white head

smell: really nice. smells pretty sweet with powerful hops- pineapple, citrus. grainy sweet caramely malt

taste: starts with (obviously) super hops- almost typically 10%+ dipa-- bitter pineapple, lemon/citric-sugar, mango, grain, finishes with nice mildly sweet caramel malt, pine, pineapple and grapefruit, gets a little chaffy malt as it warms

feel: dipa, medium-hefty

this is a great dipa. I'm not a huge fan of Ruination, but Ruinten definitely picks up on some of Ruination's slack.

Orange-amber color that is completely transparent. I love the way you can see right through this glass. 1/4 finger of head sustains and some lacing. An inviting and beautiful looking beer. One of the best looking DIPAs I have ever reviewed. Just as I suspected, very hop forward with the smell. Getting lots of pine, floral, citrus, some caramel, alcohol and esters. Lots of hops, as you would expect, but there is a substantial malt background that is present. This makes the beer more layered and complex. Alcohol is detected in the taste. Mouthfeel is somewhat moderate, with a great flow of carbonation from bottom to top. It does leave the mouth quite dry. Overall, I was really impressed with the appearance of this beer and of course the hoppiness and the great care that was taken into created a somewhat balanced beer. This is definitely a hop lovers beer, and I'm glad I got the chance to try it. Can't wait until the 20 year!

#90

Freshness Date: 9/13/13

A: Amber orange with a deep haziness and a full, cream colored head. The varied sized bubbles slowly fade leaving a path of lace on the glass.

S: So fresh, sweet, and dank to the maximum. Pine, flowers, grapefruit pulp, tropical fruit, and biscuit malt.

T: The hops take a hold of the taste buds and suplexes them into submission. Pine, earth and hints of green tea bitterness along with strong citrus characteristics. The tropical notes are overpowered by the hop bitterness. Somewhere there are hints of bready, biscuity malt sweetness. The alcohol is moderate and lends a warmth to the finish.

M: Syrupy and sticky with a hop oil bitter linger and a moderate, activating carbonation.

O: After stage diving into this mosh pit of hops, my palate will need several days of rehabilitation. A solid DIPA that doesn't quite separate itself from other West Coast DIPA's. The strength here in the end lacks interest and complexity.
