Stone 10th Anniversary IPA harkens back to our earlier Anniversary Ales, with abundant hopping at many stages of the brewing process. Appropriately, the aroma is over-the-top, with pronounced piney and resiny hop flavors combined with tropical fruit esters and more subtle notes of toasted malts and alcohol. Our Stone 10th Anniversary Ale weighs in at 10% alcohol by volume (perfect for a 10th anniversary beer), and has a little more color and malt character than our other IPAs. In addition to using the new Summit hop variety in the brewhouse to provide the powerful bitterness, we went back through our records and found some of our favorite hops over the years, and used them to flavor this brew, including Chinook, Crystal, and large doses of Simcoe in the dry-hop to provide a huge, complex, piney, fruity and floral hop character. This is a colossal beer, big in every sense: hoppy, malty, rich, and strong! Right up our alley.

Bottle a good 3-4 years back. Poured hazy orange with big head. Aromas and flavor were citrus, penny, malt, and stale pineapple. I think this was sitting on my local liquor store shelf for a good year or more.

Believe the bottle is well past it's prime. Has some funky sweet pineapple scents. Taste is some sweet citrus, some pine, pretty easy drinking with some musty notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

For a 6 year old bottle of double IPA, not too bad at all! Aroma has fallen off for sure to some dead malts, no more hops. The flavor has stayed quite nice though, hops have fallen off but there are sweet smooth malts on the palate.

Dry hopped, malty, thick copper color, nice foam head and a bit of fruit, looks like another great seasonal from Stone. Enjoy

Pours to good head/lacing; copper-orange color. Big citrus/pine aroma. Taste - WWOOWW!! Strong hops blend together perfectly with some sweet and spicy malts leaving a taste that lingers and lingers. Some mouth and nose burning alcohol presence adds to its strength. Even with all the bold flavor, it still somehow seems amazingly smooth, as some reviewers have noted. Another remarkable effort by Stone.

Bottle drank on 12/12/11. Pours a dark amber almost a ruby red. Think white head a bit of carb bubbles coming up to the top. Taste and smell caramel, roasty, resin, alcohol, banana, butterscotch, vanilla..Clear. On the higher end of sweet not to much bitter at all, maybe a bit salty. Really nice was surprised the way it tastes. Very heavy on the caramel taste and sweet with a bit of banana. Taste like a barley wine but a lighter one. Id have to say its come a long way from what it started out as but I really enjoy this one.

Dark amber with a well held tan head. Resin on the nose and good balance in the aroma. Malt could improve the balance. Some toasty bitterness on the finish. Overall really good.

Bottle, drank 5/27/2011. Wow. Poured a amber/copper color, small white head, dissipates quickly. Aroma was mellowed over the years, notes of pine, touch of citrus. Flavor was smooth, malty, touch of bite left from the remaining hop notes. Aroma was no where near as good as the flavor was.

Served in a tulip. Pours a nice copper color with a small white head that diminishes pretty quickly. A bit murky. Average lacing. The nose brings forward a pretty heavy amount of bread, brown sugar, and caramel. A bit nutty as well. A bit doughy. The flavor continues on this path with a really nice amount of brown-sugar sweetness as well as light dark fruits and a bit of sherry character, likely from oxidation. Flavor is fairly lasting and the moderate sweetness carries things through nicely. Bitterness is light at this point, though still there. Medium body. This has really moved toward an english barleywine and it was quite enjoyable. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-15-2011
