Huge beer both in its bitter hops and the 10.8% abv. Really smells wonderful with clean tropical fruit. Taste is bitter grapefruit, resin, malt and booze. If you like big, bitter, hoppy, high abv beers this is a must try.

Pours deep golden leaning towards copper with a thin white head. Intense stone fruits perfumes with some herbal tea notes and berries. Low carbonation, malty palate at first, a tangly bitterness then emerges and keeps on freezing my tongue. Intense and clean super imperial IPA.

This is a beer for those who would like fresh hops swimming in every glass they drink. The malt punches through with as much force as the hops finishes making this one of the most interesting brews Iíve tasted. If you like to punch your taste buds in the kidneys, this oneís for you.

Pours golden with thinner than expected head. Aroma is tropical fruit and citrus. Flavor is citrus and pine, malt is sweeter than ruination. Not as great as I thought it would be but still great. Tasted next to a ruination 2.0 and was sweet compared to it. Iím still waiting for a beast IPA for an anniversary beer. Like they used to at Stone.

22 bomber to cervoise. Pours clear amber. Creamy tan head. Aroma is HUGE hops...pine, booze, resin, dank. Taste is roasty toasty malts, booze and a wall of wet hops. Finish has that definitive Stone flavor...not sure how to describe. Lasts and lasts on the palate with a lot of heat.

"A stage dive into a mosh pit of hops." As a headbanger and botanical beer freak, that slogan is like a sirenís song. Letís be honest, though, the words "Triple IPA" would be enough to ensnare me. When I cracked open RuinTen, I was (rightfully) expecting a hop bomb of the highest degree. What I wasnít ready for was how complex and artful (yes, artful, damnit) RuinTen would be. This Imperial IPA pours ruby-amber with off-white foam. The aroma? Itís floral, earthy, spicy, piney, tropical, and malty. The taste? Damn, thereís so much going on in here. Thereís candy-like malt, juicy hops (big tropical note - orange, grapefruit, peach), and wet, resinous pine. The body is crisp, chewy, and totally dry at the very end. Youíll feel the booze, but the taste hardly penetrates the barrier of hops. For me, this is like Pliny but with more hops. In other words, take a bow, Stone.

Stone is amazing. Packing 10% into a deliciously drinkable IPA is an impressive feat. The hops are subdued by the alcohol ever so perfectly. That is all

Everything I love in a beer, tons of flavor, strongy hoppy taste, and perfectly bitter.

Lots of pine on the nose. Pours a honey gold with a thick off white head. Damn. This is pretty good. Very well balanced. Lots of malt and a thick mouthfeel. Resin and bitterness and a boozy finish. Very nice.

Look - Copper orange, see through body. White head with medium sized bubbles. Medium sized head with normal pour. Lacing.
Smell - Grapefruit. Malt. Pineapple. Pine. Lemon.
Taste - Grapefruit and light malt. Bitter pine on the finish. Well balance blend of hop and citrus.
Feel - No carbonation bomb all at once but throughout. Medium to heavy feel. Sticks to the tongue.
Overall - I enjoyed Enjoy By July 4, 2015 better than Ruinten. Ruination 2.0 was a step lower than this one. I love the dank, grapefruit taste.
