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.

    Bomber from Premier Gourmet, Amherst, NY. Oh no! The last IPA in the house! Well, I deserve it after a couple of hours outside dicking around with the Christmas lights. Clear orange pour, with a fluffy ivory head, and said head fell away to some respectable lacing. Big aroma, resins and citrus. Superb mouthfeel. Great flavour, all the bitterness you could ever ask for, with no shortage of citrus and pine resins, and alcohol without a burn.

    An aggressive pour gives you a white foamy head that settles quickly. Great slick lacing. Aroma is piney, citrus and earthy. Strong pine flavour with an abundance of fruit, lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, melon. Hoppy? Yep it is but it's all balanced out with a sweet maltiness. Mouthfeel is full bodied and dry. I love beers like this.

    My second from World of Beer. An orange-amber in color with a moderate, sudsy textured, off white head rising above. There's decent hang time on the head. Settles into a moderate sized ringlet. The profile is a strong citric-floral presence. Let it warm and the grapefruit comes through. Some caramel sweetness holds up the dominate bitterness. The palate is thick and slick. Quite refreshing.

    Bottle from sam/@d2atlanta. Light amber colored pour, near perfect white head and lacing. Huge resiny hops aroma and initial taste - grapefruit, peaches, pine - then a great caramelly malt presence to calm the hops bomb down a bit. GREAT bitter linger leaving one yearning for more. Big Ass Beer - Worthy. Thanks Sam!

    Pours a slightly hazy orange amber with a sub one finger head that lofts a while. Good amount of carbonation. Aroma is decently hopped with a strong hit of gummy bears. Taste is very dry and hoppy that seems to mask the booziness ok. Stick and bitter at the end. Very good.

    Bomber from within a few weeks of it hitting the shelves locally. Sticky resinous hops with full on citrus and passion fruits rounded out by big pine. Sparkling orang~copper colored body, foamy head and bright, thick lacing. Malty coupled with a huge bitterness, after taste has a trace of booziness to it. Burnt caramel, some complimenting earthy hops and a wide range of fruitiness. Just about wrecked my palate, decent hop bomb however a touch too jumbled to be considered great.

    Pours copper with perfect clarity and small, airy head. Evergreen and grapefruit are the notable aromatics. Ample malts play against significant hops bitterness. It's a tasty beer, floral, piney, bitter citrus. Full bodied and incredibly soft. Mouthfeel is the standout.

    Strong, hoppy aroma is quite resiny and has subtle fruity hints. Pours a clear dark amber with a frothy but not persistent buff head. Resiny hops dominate the sharp flavor, which has fruity and malty hops and just a little bitterness. Mouthfeel is fizzy, edgy and firm, leaving a persistent hoppy tingle and the feeling that you just swallowed a pine tree. Well done, Stone Brewing, you arrogant bastards!

    Long story short, take some thick, fresh pine sap, plenty of it, mix some grapefruit juice in it. Add some carbonated water and presto!! Ruin Ten IPA. Thick and syrupy, hop bomb, initial bracing bitter shock that mellows to a steady bitterness. Overall its a winner.

    Ruination is an awesome IPA so the 10th anniversary version should be even awesomer, right? Well, maybe not. I think the extra alcohol kills off some of the hop aromas and flavors. Thick, sticky mouthfeel is terrific but too much booziness to appreciate all of the hops. Typical palate-wrecker from Stone but not in a good way.
