4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
So thrilled to get my hands on a bottle of this since Ruination is my top rated brew. Poured from a bomber that was chilled in a cooler while driven straight from CA to OK. I also poured a "regular" Ruination so I could A/B them. Pours a cloudy golden orange, a hue I would paint my walls. Obviously way more hops in the dry hop process. Very complex, very smooth, very awesome...however, believe it or not, I prefer the regular Ruination by a sliver of a hair. I do like the ABV and IBU of the 10th Anni, but lucky for me the normal Ruination wins in this A/B test. That said, I’m thrilled to be enjoying the 10th Anni...it’s like they turned up the intensity level on this from the Ruination. Well done Stone, well done.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(650ml, bottled 06/08/16, from Systembolaget web order) Pours a slightly hazy bright orange colour with a large head of dense cream-coloured foam that fades slowly leaving lace. Aroma of sweet orange, ripe peach, grapefruit peel, resin, pine needles, caramel, slight bread, moderate rather than massive. Flavour is more intense, concentrated caramel and sweet orange, peach and dried apricot up front, rather sweet. Hopping really kicks in from the middle, big resin notes, citrus peels, pine, soapy florals, quite high bitterness clinging to the roof of the mouth. Long resinous aftertaste. Medium-full, almost sticky body with fairly soft carbonation. Hop bomb of the resinous and bitter crystal malt variety, definitely both west coast and old school, but solid stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flaska från SB. Provning med Nerikes Ölsällskap. Klar, guldig med gräddbeiget, krämigt skum som lämnar rester längs sidorna på glaset. Stor, humlepackad doft av bitter apelsinmarmelad, apelsinskal, färska tallskott, honung, stickig humlekotte, kakdeg och knäck. Stor, oljig och klibbig kropp. Något spritig med fyllig smak av kola, karamell, stor beska och fyllig sötma. Kaxig efter förväntan. Mycket gott.

Amber color, medium beige head. Sweet fruit aromas like peaches, oranges, dried apricots, caramel with subtle pine hops in the background. Really big taste! Like a hopped up american Barley wine. Sweet taste of ripe fruits, dried fruits and caramel that quickly turns around to a big, round pine hop finish. Great beer!

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
TAP @ #1 Bevog Beerfestival Austria. Clear red-brown. Very, very massively hoppy. So resinous it’s almost minty. San Diego style IPA with the hoppiness dialled up. Little bit of spice in the nose. Body is smooth, bitter, not much carbonation, slightly sweet floral finish. Very good.
